The Chosen Seed: The Dog-Faced Gods Book Three (DO&hellip by Sarah Pinborough
5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent finale!, 19 Nov 2013
I read the first 2 books in this trilogy and was told the finale was a corker...and it was! I highly recommend reading all 3 of the Dog-Faced Gods trilogy. It's (mostly) set in London and the main characters are interesting, and some are not what they appear to be. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Poison, 2 Aug 2013
I had read a few other books by Sarah Pinborough but didn't really know what to expect with Poison.

A fairy tale with a twist? It's been done in many ways, but this one has its own unique flavour (and a bit of saucyness). You are given an alternate view of Snow White and the Queen and their motivations and desires. The characters are not quite what you expect them to be and the tale ends in an unexpected way.

Not only is it a fast, interesting read, but the book design is beautiful & high quality, complete with lovely line illustrations.

If you read the next book in the series, Charm, some of the characters from Poison make an appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating!, 2 Aug 2013
I'm not one of those rabid Ripperologists who devour every word about that time frame, but am interested in Victorian history, especially set in London. I didn't know what to expect when I started reading this novel, but it ended up being a hard to put down book (I only read it at home since I got the hardcover and it was hard to not bring it everywhere until I finished it).
Based on real events and real people, the story is about the Torso Murders which happened at the same time as the Ripper murders, and the man who tries to discover who did it, and one of the suspects. Sarah Pinborough makes the story come alive, and the characters are interesting and well-fleshed out… Read more
