Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really enjoyed this book and maybe a little bit more than it deserved because it's not what I expected at all and quite different from the usual fantasy & sci-fi fare I tend towards.

There are lots of interesting elements to the plot and an array of the kind of stock characters you would expect from the genre, but the style of writing I think elevates them above the average.

The author's experience in the genre is evident- she has constructed a good core story, which will hopefully be fleshed out further in future instalments.

Very competitively priced Solar Battery Charger that does do exactly what it says in the description.

I was very impressed on opening the box- this is a solid and heavy unit that in fact is attractively designed in appearance.

I have so far used it to charge a motorcycle battery, which it has done very well, but there are multiple uses. Be warned however that its uses are limited only to those types of batteries described above.

The main concern is, as others have suggested, the unreliability of sunshine in the UK. But the product can hardly be faulted for that.

And, being heavy and with its pane of glass, quite fragile...there is an issue with… Read more
