Blood of the Wolf: Volume 4 (The Forest Lord)
Blood of the Wolf: Volume 4 (The Forest Lord)
by Steven A. McKay
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic 5 star finally., 21 Oct. 2016
Blood Of The Wolf is the fourth and final novel in Steven A. McKay's Robin Hood series and it kind of starts like ‘the dust has settled’ for our favourite characters or has it?

Robin now pardoned and no longer a wolfs head is now working for Sheriff Henry de Faucumberg collecting taxes, rents and the like from local folk but a new band of outlaws
Have come into the fold which will test Robin like nothing he has ever experienced.

As usual McKay brings us a novel full of action packed historical fiction and this
final book in the series is my favourite by far.

I haved loved every single one of his four books in the series and I cannot wait to see what Steven A. McKay will bring us next!


Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil (Kindle Single)
Friar Tuck and the Christmas Devil (Kindle Single)
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Christmas novella!, 16 Nov. 2015
Friar Tuck and The Christmas Devil is a perfect novella for Christmas time. I was lucky to get an advanced copy and although I didn't read it at the correct time of year it certainly didn't spoil the story.
I have a feeling I'll be picking this one up again at Christmas time though as it really does get the reader in the festive spirit.
Friar Tuck is a big favourite of mine from Steven's "Forest Lord" books so I was happy to find out the friendly Friar would be taking the main stage in this novella.
Steven has set the setting perfect for the reader, it's not hard to picture the little village and all the snow.
Houses are being broken into, what little belongings the poor folk have are stolen,
Whether it's food or valuables it's makes no difference. Strange hoof like prints are found in the snow, horned beings are seen running away from the scene...
It's time for Friar Tuck to use all his skills to help the village folk with this strange mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of action & adventure!, 31 July 2015
So we now have a trilogy of Robin Hood stories and Rise Of The Wolf "being the third book"
in the Forest Lord Series will not be the last. I'm pleased to hear we will have one more final
book, but lets not get ahead of ourselves here!

What about Rise Of The Wolf? Well firstly I would like to add that not only has Robin Hood
grown as a character but so has Steven A. McKay with his writing.

Robin Hood & friends are ever tested throughout the book, the relentless Sir Guy Of Gisbourne
has recovered from his horrendous injuries inflicted on him by Robin and Sir Guy will do everything in his power to destroy not only Robin Hood but also Hoods family.

I loved the development of several characters in the book, there are to many to name here but whether
the characters are good or evil makes no difference, they are all likeable in their own way.

The action moves at a steady pace and there are multiple story lines to keep you interested.
At times I couldn't turn the pages quick enough in my excitement to find out what was happening to
my favourite characters.
There are fights, frantic chases across meadows, fields & woodlands, murders, double crossing and
an execution to round it all off!

I wait with excitement and anticipation for the fourth and final book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic novella!, 19 Sept. 2014
Here we have Steven A. McKay's thrid book to be published and he really is polishing off his skills! I do love a
novella and because of the page count novellas move a long swiftly, Knight Of The Cross does not dissapoint.

You may have read about Sir Richard-at-Lee in the The Wolf and the Raven books by McKay and if you have you must love the character as much as I do. So when I found out we were going back to his early years as a Hospitaller Knight stationed in Rhodes I was quite excited. Add to that- "mysterious disappearances, devil-worshippers & frightened locals" Sir Richard must use all his skills to clear up the mystery!

Steven A. McKay's story telling is a treat, you feel the boiling Greek heat beating down on you, the twisting maze of the dark alley ways & the knights must over come large odds as.they are up against something far more sinister than they can ever imagine!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hood is back!, 25 May 2014
Ok, "The Wolf's Head" was a cracking 1st novel & now we have the sequel "The Wolf And The Raven".
The sequel carries on where the 1st one ended and there is no let up on the pace of the book. I would say Steven McKay has stepped up a level & has really become a quality authour up there with Cornwell & Kane etc.

The characters are fantastic, Robin Hood & the lads are all together again fighting for their lives & freedom against a deadly foe in
Sir Guy of Gisbourne,

I really enjoyed the little side story of Sir Richard-at-Lee & his sergeant called Stephen.

Here's hoping for round 3 in the future!


All The Devils
All The Devils
by Harry Shannon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Who is Spider Walsh..., 10 April 2014
This review is from: All The Devils (Paperback)
The dynamic duo of Harry Shannon & Steven W. Booth are back with one hell of a thrill ride, "All The Devils" is like riding the white rapids with the book in your hand.

Spider Walsh is our hero working as a janitor in the wrong place at the wrong time. He saves political aide Carrie Young from certain death and brings a whole lot of hell down on them! With the help of Spiders friends they try to put the pieces of the puzzle together and work out who wanted Carrie's boss, a Congressman who is taking bribes from a major corporation dead.

All The Devils is full of interesting characters which is what I look for in a book, some are good, some are bad & some off their head crazy! All The Devils doesn't disappoint, I have read both these authors before with Harry Shannon a particular favourite of mine. Fingers crossed we will be hearing from both these authors & Spider Walsh in the near future.


Wolf's Head (The Forest Lord Book 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next book in the series! Loved it., 9 Sept. 2013
Wolf's Head is Steven A. McKay's first novel and the first book in the 'Forest Lord' series which starts off with Robin being a young lad living in a small village with his friends and family but that soon changes with this fast paced novel with the action almost non stop.

The characters you will meet are very interesting, some nice and some very nasty! Steven has done his homework drawing you in with great detail of the area 'Wakefield' which is where most of this first novel takes place.

I'm now waiting impatiently for the second instalment of Wolf's Head 'The Forest Lord series'.
The ending brings a character which will test Robins leadership skills to the maximum!!!


FIFTEEN MINUTES
FIFTEEN MINUTES
Price: £0.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Mr Ollie, 19 April 2012
This review is from: FIFTEEN MINUTES (Kindle Edition)
Meet Simon, a sixteen year old lad picked on at school and he is not the cool kid on the block.
Simon's mother has a new boyfriend and wants to spend time with him alone, so she packs Simon off to spend time with his Granny but when Simon arrives, his Granny seems different, very different....

What is that cool cat's eye ring she is wearing? A ring of power!

When Simon has the ring for himself, he can become who ever he wants, Rock star, the biggest Mafia leader in the city or maybe the richest banker playboy. What he does not realise is when he becomes them, he will have their habits too and some of them are NASTY!

Join Simon in an adventure he will never forget and some of life's lessons he may well wish he never experienced..

William Ollie is a firm favourite of mine, I have not been disappointed in any of his books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Top Suspense Group return! Favorite Kills! A+++++++, 5 Feb. 2012
The Top suspense Group return with their new crime anthology, 'FAVORITE KILLS' and it is very welcome!
I read their first anthology 'Top Suspence' and was blown away by the great fiction and yet again they hit a home run with a second installment.

You get Eleven stories for your hard earned cash and each one is worth every penny, they all bring something different. Action, horror, drama and even a bit of humor! Archie's Been Framed by David Zeltserman had me laughing out loud while reading it...

One thing I like about The Top Suspense Group is they bring you authors with so many different styles and maybe authors you have not read and after reading 'Favorite Kills' i'm sure you will come away thinking 'wow' I have never heard or read him/her I must look for their other fiction, I did and I like that because you not only come away having enjoyed the fiction but you get a bonus by discovering a future favorite author that you may not ever have come across.


Dead And Gone
Dead And Gone
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Shannon classic!!, 22 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Dead And Gone (Kindle Edition)
Horror, supernatural, psychological suspense, it's all here for your enjoyment!
This is a scary novel but it also has some fun to it but don't let that put you off.

Set in a lonely cabin in the woods (which is a GREAT setting for any horror novel) You get to know Jack and his
comatose wife Frankie who are spending some time there and it just so happens a man slaughtered his entire family there.... Oh dear, it's all gonna get crazy!

Great characters with the local rednecks and local law inforcement, Harry Shannon brings you an excellent read based on hauntings and legends.
