Midnight Visitors
Midnight Visitors
Price: £0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Midnight visitors, 1 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Midnight Visitors (Kindle Edition)
Set in the world of The Green Woman, this story lives up to its authors high standards. Filled with imagery, it's easy to follow the main character, Aisha, on her perilous journey to flee from tyranny. The author's depiction of the dark streets of the nightmare world of Providence, carries the reader along, never allowing the reader's attention to flag or wander. A must read and highly recommended story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A review of..., 31 May 2014
…The Firelord’s Crown, by Dee Harrison.

A true epic fantasy that takes the reader on a tumultuous journey, from the conquered land of Dinith, through mountain strongholds, rivers, cities, and much more.

Dee Harrison has created a truly wonderful and three dimensional world, and the characters that inhabit it will engage the reader’s emotions to a startling degree. Travel with Prince Falath, his cousin Rollo and their companions, on a journey that fills the imagination with a plethora of images.

I took my time reading this book, simply so I could absorb the contents, like a fine glass of wine. I also didn’t want it to end, as the characters became almost real to me. I loved the heroes, hated the villains, and felt each wound inflicted. I bowed my head against the winter storms and shivered with the biting cold.

From start to finish, this book offers any fan of speculative fiction the chance to indulge their passion. A must read for anyone who appreciates a good story.

I was a little nervous, when I watched this DVD, wondering it it would be as good as the previous ones, but it didn't disappoint. High quality filming, superb backdrops and, of course, fantastic acting. Loved it.

The Binding (Chronicles of Azaria Book 1)
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A tale to bind and enthral you, 24 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Binding, by Sam Dogra, is an excellent read, with superb settings and characterisation. I really cared what happened to the main protagonist and the first person point of view, really helped me to become immersed in the story. Only one minor criticism. The, use of the word "to" instead of "at". For example: "Ryan looked to the moon", or "I looked to my lap". This jarred me a little, but apart from this nitpick, this is an almost perfect story and one readers of all ages will enjoy. Highly recommended.

Entertaining, but a little annoyed at the depiction of a black man in the illustration on pg.3. I realise this was commonplace at the time this book was originally published, but was annoyed at the obvious caricature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take a ride on the epic side., 11 May 2013
I've just finished reading Paul Freeman's debut novel, Tribesman and what a read! Epic in every sense of the word, the story takes the reader on a grueling journey, alongside its main protagonist, Culainn.
A warrior from the cold and beautiful north, Culainn now resides within the hot, dusty Empire, a fugitive from his own people and past actions.
Mr Freeman manages to immerse his reader in the world he has created, painting a picture of a brutal and bloody world, in which his champion fights to survive and, in the way of true heroes, save the woman he loves. The plot is steadfast, the descriptions vivid and engaging and the characters rounded out as near to reality as it's possible to get.
There are a few sentences and dialogue that could have been tightened up, but this could be said of many well established authors' work. The point is, this is a book well worth reading. Big, bold and full of action, the writer does not hold back, but gives his all in engaging his readers.
So, live the story, ride, run and fight alongside Culainn and become part of the epic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Errol come home - a children's story., 11 April 2013
I've just finished reading Errol Come Home by Harvey Rooster. This is the story of a contented, pampered kitty, who loves and is loved by his owners, until the dreaded day when children invade his space and cause him to run away.

Not only is this an enchanting piece of writing, it also teaches children how to handle and care for pets, guiding them along the road to responsible pet ownership. Errol himself is a wonderful character, everything a cat should be and more.

The story is cleverly done from Errol's point of view, quite an achievement, since he can't speak. That said, the lack of dialogue does not detract from the story, rather it enhances it, enabling the reader to see the world through Errol's eyes.

Due to be published very soon, both in Kindle and paperback, watch this space for publication dates. In the meantime go to these links for more information:

4.0 out of 5 stars To Infinity and beyond!, 30 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've just finished reading Infinity Bridge by Ross M Kitson and wow - what a ride! Primarily science fiction, this red-hot scorcher of a novel also has clever touches of fantasy, with modern day Knights of the Round Table, coordinated by a computer icon called Merlin.

This writer did, what only a handful of novelists have achieved, and made me read, read, read, until I reached the finale. The characters: Sam, Nick, Annie, Gaynor, Albert, and Rob, are truly three dimensional - totally believable.

Mr Kitson's powers of description are phenomenal, placing the reader smack bang in the middle of the action:
`Annie, come on!' Sam yelled. He could see Annie heading toward Armitage.
Her eyes glittered with anger, but she turned to follow. Sam's boot caught the edge of one of the smart-phones on the floor. He grabbed it and hurtled into the corridor with Nick and Annie.
Ben's pistol flared as he walked back. The kick of the gun sent the bullets into the room randomly. Flashes of sparks and shattering glass were audible.
A glare of green light erupted on the far side of the club. The two androids had shot down the side door.
`Behind the bar,' Annie yelled as the four ran. They scrabbled for cover as two
green beams hissed overhead and struck a table and chairs in an explosion of green fire.
I read this book so quickly, it made my head spin. Yes, there is room for minor improvements, such as eradicating repetition and not using the characters' names over and over in close proximity, but, as I said, these are just nitpicks and fade into obscurity, given the overall exquisite crafting of this novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars A grand tale., 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Sword for Hire (Paperback)
Having just read this tale of high fantasy, adventure, sorcery and dragons, I felt as if I'd completed an epic journey. David Graham's characters are three dimensional, making it easy for the reader to emphasise with them.
Yes, there're the usual ingredients of high fantasy, such as wizards, witches and dragons, but Mr Graham manages to depict them in a different and unique way. The touches of comedy he employs throughout the narrative, amuse without detracting from the overall story.
The description of the backdrops to the story are excellent, enabling the reader to immerse themselves in the story with ease.
On the whole, the plot and characterisation are well crafted, only slightly married by some repetition in the narrative and dialogue, which given the excellence of the story overall, can be forgiven.
My advice? This book is well worth purchasing and adding to any fantasy buff's library.
