Shattered Glass

5.0 out of 5 stars Very moving, 31 May 2014

This review is from: Shattered Glass (Kindle Edition)
This is a poignant story of a girl named Tiana who crafts shattered glass into artistic exhibits. Behind her skill lies a dark past which the reader is slowly allowed a glimpse into.

The tale is carefully and thoughtfully woven with the reader's empathy lying firmly with Tiana and her faithful friend, Zach. Some difficult issues are dealt with in this book but the author does a great job and tells an engaging story at the same time.

This review is from: Artifact (Kindle Edition)
I have read other books by this author and as usual her story does not fail to give satisfaction.

Following the tale of Lara, returning from New Zealand to the UK with a stolen artefact, the reader quickly becomes drawn into her story as she meets new characters in her new setting. They are all very believable and the 'will they, won't they' with the elusive neighbour helps to make this an enjoyable read from cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting thriller!, 27 Mar 2014

This is a fast-paced novel which draws the reader straight into a world of ancient languages and danger.

Trying to decipher ancient manuscripts whilst being pursued by people intent on harming her, the main character with her band of assistants never gives up.

Based on an idea of humans originally coming to Earth from Mars, this is a fascinating and exciting tale in search of the truth recorded in the pages of an ancient text which everyone seems rather too interested in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating read!, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The story of a hybrid vampire, this tale mixes traditional views of the blood-sucking creatures with more human qualities too.

Steven cannot help who his mother is or what it makes him but he does know it is not a life choice he wishes to follow. Instead his heart is lost to a girl who he is determined to be reunited with.

Through the pages of this novel the reader follows Steven's journey as he learns to deal with who he is and whether or not he can survive in the world of humans.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrill a minute!, 23 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you love a good, conspiracy thriller then this is the book for you.

Fast-paced action and a clever plot set against the raw back-drop of a shattered Kosovo, this is the story of friendship and justice.

When his friend goes missing in Kosovo whilst working for him, Jeff Bradley is forced to go there himself to discover what has happened. Unravelling a long stream of corruption at the highest level in the country's justice system, Jeff is joined by an army of friends and other seekers of justice.

With plenty of action and intrigue this story moves at a fast and gripping pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting!, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Sunset (Kindle Edition)
This is an amazing book.
I had not read the blurb before reading this and it took me through believing it was a ghost story, then an apocalyptic tale to a historical novel. It actually has a little of everything including human interest and romance too.
Set against the magnificent backdrop of the Scottish highlands, this story tells of people from different periods in time witnessing a mysterious but ominous looking sky before being transported back in time to a troubled period of Scottish history.
Mixing fact with fiction, the different generations are united in their quest to conquer the English army which threatens a whole way of life.
Their story will move you as well as have you cheering for them from the edge of the battlefield.

Baby: An Alien Apocalyptic Saga (Species Intervention #6609 Series Book 1)
Price: £2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept, 7 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well-told story combining the tale of a woman, treated appallingly by her domineering husband from who she manages to escape, mixed with an alien landing on earth and looking for a life form to look after it. All set in 1929, this makes for an interesting start to a trilogy.

Contains a little something for everyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars A book with a difference., 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This novel opens with the main character, Dan, losing his job and facing the prospect of delivering the news to his wife and daughter. Such a 'normal' opening does not prepare the reader for the events of the following night.

Setting off the next morning to take his daughter to school, they soon discover that 'something' has happened. The roads are littered with crashed vehicles containing corpses. Animals seem to have escaped the phenomenon and there is no explanation as to how Dan's family could have escaped this apocalypse.

The story unfolds with Dan having to think for his family and whatever possible future they may have in this isolated existence. It is tense yet well-told as if it is something which could happen to any of us.

Discovering that a few other humans have also survived, the focus changes to discovering what has caused the event and what lies ahead.

I don't wish to spoil the ending for anyone. The story is well-structured and believably narrated. A pleasant change from other novels of its type which play on the violent side of such a future.


The Shoulders of Giants (A Jake Abraham Mystery)
The Shoulders of Giants (A Jake Abraham Mystery)
Price: £2.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Approachable!, 3 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great detective novel with something a little different which really makes it stand out from the crowd.

Jake is a novice private investigator. He takes on a case which most others wouldn't want to touch. But what begins as an apparently straight-forward missing persons case, soon turns into something much more sinister as Jake finds himself embroiled in the search for a serial killer.

The plot is cleverly woven and keeps the reader guessing until the very end. Jake is realistic and vulnerable but liaises with the police to help solve the case.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book which could have been mundane but instead retained by interest all the way through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific trilogy!, 30 Jan 2014
Having read all three books in this trilogy I can definitely recommend them to people who like fast-action and enjoy a sense of danger and fantasy.
The main character is called Nate and when we are first introduced to him he is at a loss to explain the strange dreams he has been experiencing in which he always seems to die.
With his father and brother dead and feeling abandoned by his mother, Nate despairs of having anyone he can confide in or trust.
But as Nate begins to trust in friendships which begin to help him understand his destiny, the reader enters the world of Outview where Nate is able to travel through time to where he wears other incarnations and fights against danger and evil in his search for truth and goodness.
There is not a dull moment in this trilogy which will keep you on the edge of your seat with the realistically human characters who are not afraid to show their weaknesses or emotions.
Terrific stuff!
