Exposure (Tory Brennan) by Kathy Reichs
Exposure (Tory Brennan) by Kathy Reichs
4.0 out of 5 stars The Virals Face Exposure, 18 April 2014
The latest YA Thriller from Kathy Reichs to continue the story of Tory Brennan and her pack and to be honest its become a guilty pleasure for me. I love the way that the author can bring together such a young cast that will appeal to older readers as well as the younger ones as she takes them into a world that she (the author) knows too well as crime thriller meets YA in this title.

Its fast paced, works extremely well with Kathyís strengths and when added to the fact that the ďviralsĒ powers are burgeoning keeps the reader on the edge of their seats and the situations becomes more dire alongside the threat of exposure. All round a cracking read and one that is a definite… Read more
Age of Shiva by James Lovegrove
Age of Shiva by James Lovegrove
The latest from James in his Age of series and whilst Iím a huge fan of whats gone before, this title left me a little flat.

Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard
Moth and Spark by Anne Leonard
4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking debut, 18 April 2014
Iím a huge fan of fantasy and to be honest Iím always looking for something that break away from the conventions in their own ways. What occurs within this book is a story that not only hits the reader with a cracking story full of action and danger but also delivers a tale of emotional involvement as the principle characters develop from strangers to lovers out to face the world.

Its wonderfully inventive, the world building is solid and when the reader adds to this some good dialogue all round generates a story that will involve the reader on more than one level. All round a great read and I canít wait to see what Anne hits back with next time.
