Product Description

About the Author

Lorna Reid is an ex-daydreamer, geek, and writer, who currently lives in the sunny climes of Scotland, having escaped from Kent many years ago. She is editor and writer for UK videogame site GamingLives, where she talks about and reviews games. Videogames and an incurable Columbo habit tend to dominate much of her free time, but she manages to maintain a blog in a dark corner of the internet, where she talks about writing, publishing, games, and TV. Although her love for the Xbox 360 has waned, she has and always will be a PC gamer. The Septic Circle is her first published work.

... those are just 3 of the words to describe this debut novel.

Anyone with a passing interest in the paranormal should have a read, and anyone who has experienced the world of the psychic circle will likely enjoy it.

Definitely worth a read if you have a sense of humour. And if you don't have one? Read it anyway, you might suddenly come across that missing sense you've been pining for!

I was lucky enough to read a preview version of this book shortly before it was available for release, and it's hands down the funniest novel I've had my hands on since I was first given The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy 12 years ago. It's absolutely hilarious from start to finish, and I found myself almost going sleepless one night just to get to the end, because it's so engrossing. Barely a page goes by when you've not laughed twice, but it also knows exactly when to be poignant and when to keep the reader thinking. It's an amazing debut novel, and one that should be read by everyone.

I received this book via Firstreads (Goodreads) in exchange for an honest review and I certainly wasn't disappointed...

Firstly, I must state that this book had a lot of different parts that attributed to the overall concept and storyline - the combination of which could have ended in disaster (or should that be in ectoplasm?!) but actually resulted in a hilarious tale of friendship, betrayal and psychic hijinks. I snickered my way through the journey of each character, learning to love their quirks and accept their awkwardness.

It was a lovely book in the respect of the physical journey each character took and what they achieved in the end, but I also felt that, in a way, it personified some of the issues with today's society. Each character, to some extent, had a flaw, but they developed and I grew to appreciate them.

The comical aspect of the book was exceptional. As well as the irony, sarcasm and general trickery. Very entertaining and unusual! A definite recommendation to all! I may have only just stopped smirking at the sheer genius of some of the lines from this book!

Also, I could really do with a Freddy in my life. I need a personal cleaner that I can pay in fine china and soap magazines. :)

*I must also state that when I refer to "each character", I am clearly excluding Fenwick! :

The Septic Circle is such a great book. At first the format seemed a little odd as it's a story being told by five people using diary extracts but the characters are all so well-defined that before long you don't even need to see the sub-headings telling you who is writing. The strong cast of characters and the relentless peppering of jokes gives the book the same feel as a really good UK sitcom and never stops entertaining.

Seriously decent stuff. Five stars for sure.

The misadventures of Cravenly's Psychic Circle are the icing on the cake. The cake itself is the relationships between the five point of view characters, each dysfunctional in their own way and each relying on the other members of the circle to quell a little of their own loneliness.

Much like Jay, I wasn't sure why I kept coming back at first, but by the time I got to the glorious conclusion, I was genuinely upset that the book was over and I would no longer be privy to the thoughts and experiences of 4 wonderfully fleshed out and genuinely likable characters (and Fenwick).

Don't be put off by the diary format, this is a tale that will put you through a whole spectrum of emotions and let you fall in love with a group of people who may or may not believe they have psychic powers. It's well worth a read.
