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.

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!
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! :
Seriously decent stuff. Five stars for sure.
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.
