5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read; recommended, 27 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this and won't hesitate to buy any sequel. I bought it due to recommendations on a few blogs I visit, and am pleased I did.

It reminded me of Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. Some magic, some romance, and the lead characters battling the (sinister) establishment who are acting against their interests. I didn't want to put it down, and immediately turned to Amazon when I was finished to check for a sequel (unfortunately there isn't one yet).

The writing style is good, with a good balance of description and action. Yes, there are more sex scenes that you might expect in more traditional fantasy, so I would not recommend it to a young adult audience, but I did not find them to be jarring or over the top; it was healthy.

I look forward to reading more about Cameron and Sophie, and I recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and much anticipated instalment in the series, 25 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent and much anticipated instalment in the series. Consumed it very quickly and then immediately re-read it. If you are new to the series though I would advise you to start at the beginning rather than with this one, although there is a summary at the beginning (of the story so far), to get you up to speed if necessary.

Bought this set instead of the more expensive Skoda branded set. Am very happy with the quality and design of these sun-screens. Fitting took only a few minutes and they feel secure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bag, 8 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use a Nokia Lumia 925 with this bag, and love that the bag still allows easy access to the phone screen, and find that the touch screen is unaffected when used in the bag. When riding, the bag is ideally placed, and data can be easily read from the phone. The bag itself connects easily onto the Bike, and feels very secure, even when riding off-road. The medium bag is a nice size, and fits the basic essentials in with no issues.

This is a very easy to use Noseweight gauge. I purchased this as it adheres to BS standard. It seems very accurate, and I have peace of mind that my caravan has the correct Noseweight. Would recommend to other caravaners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great multipurpose thermometer., 24 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great multipurpose thermometer that can be used to both show the temperature in a room, as well as the bath water temperature. It floats and when in the bath the temperature is clearly displayed. It gives me peace of mind that the bath is the right temperature for my little one. Have recommended these to friends and family.

Bought these for use at the pool. They are a nice large size, and once blown up make a great toy. They seem well made, and will hopefully be durable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compact Cleaner that works, 24 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to keep my caravan clean, and I was not disappointed. Great suction power and made light work of the dirt on the carpet. Cleaning with the nozzle is also a breeze, as it has so much power. Cleaning the filter and emptying is easily achieved. All in all, a great purchase

2.0 out of 5 stars Struggling to get through it!, 26 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: And Heaven Too (Kindle Edition)
Having read and enjoyed other books by this Author, "Simon's Lady" and "Suspicious Hearts", and since this ebook was relatively inexpensive, I decided to give it a go despite some negative reviews.

However, I have found it extremely difficult to get through the book, and considering I am a very fast reader and not partiularly fussy when it comes to books, that is quite a damning statement. The story is long-winded, farcical and extremely difficult to believe in places. I am also not overly fond of the heroine, who seems inconsistent in her actions.

I am determined to finish the book, just to see how it ends, but can't recommend it. If you have nothing else to read, time on your hands, and the book is basically free, then you could give it a go. But if things are otherwise then I advise you to better spend your time reading or doing something else!
