5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome. What will happen with Penryn and Raffi?, 26 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The World After follows on from Angelfall and Penryn is once again out to save the world, her crazy mom and disabled sister. She longs constantly to be with Raffi as she fights for her very existence. Her sister Paige is returned after being kidnapped by Beliel, but Paige is no longer a disabled seven year old. In fact she is a true monster with Frankenstein stitches all over her face and body, metal teeth and an seemingly thirst for raw meat. Whilst staying with the Resistance, survivors are attacked and Paige is forced to flee. Uriel progresses with his plan for the apocalypse by genetically modifying the human race into locusts, a monster flying scorpion. But his plan goes horribly wrong when he unveiled his secrets to all the angels gathered at a masked ball. Penryn manages to attend the ball as this is where she believes she would find Paige who had disappeared previously. Whilst at the ball she sees Raffi in disguise and during the ensuing bloodbath managed to escape with him. They decide to return to the carnage the following day in the hopes of finding Paige and ultimately also to retrieve Raffi's Archangel wings from Beliel.
This is an awesome book that I zipped through very quickly. It's well written but also very entertaining. I hope not to wait another year got the next book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bullying gets out of hand, but will it ever stop?, 22 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love Kerry Wilkinson's Jessica Daniels series and I was excited to read Watched, his new stand alone book. It features Esther and Charlie Pooley who moved into their first house together. On her first day and whilst out shopping, Esther accidentally cut off a fellow motorist, her actions of which has lead to the most unimaginable case of bullying and victimisation. From overturned bins and stolen laundry, to outright vandalism, assault and defamation of character, each attack on the Pooleys escalate to unbelievable proportions. This is the kind of book that is gripping and terrifying in equal measures. I found myself very uncomfortable reading it as it is so easy to empathise with Esther and Charlie and how a case of road rage could escalate and get so badly out of hand. And on the other hand, it's a book you just want to continue reading as it's too gripping to ignore. I found the ending could have been more conclusive as I still don't understand the underlying motivations of the bullies and it seems that something is missing. But overall, it's a great book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Death by Hollywood
Death by Hollywood
Price: £4.68

4.0 out of 5 stars A story within a story within real life...or is the other way around?, 15 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book reads like a narrative of events involving Bobby, a drunken screenwriter with writers block, from the point of view of his agent. Bobby witnesses the murder of an acting coach who beds almost any and every aspiring and known actress in Hollywood. Deciding that he could write a real time screenplay he ingratiates himself in the lives of all the people left in the wake of the death, including the actress who committed the crime and the police officer investigating it. But life takes a turn for the worst when Bobby ends up dead and the narrator realises there are some underlying events being put in motion by the main characters.
It is a fun, light read and the book is short enough so you zip through it very quickly. Although I enjoyed it, I won't be seeking other books by this author. ithin real life...or is the other way around?

The Kill Room: Lincoln Rhyme Book 10
The Kill Room: Lincoln Rhyme Book 10
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars An awesome read. If you love Rhyme and Sachs, you will love this one too!, 10 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read all the Lincoln Rhyme books and Deaver has always been one of my all time favourite authors. I didn't know what to expect after reading and being very disappointed in the Sleeping Doll (the first in his Kathryn Dance series). Well, I had nothing to be concerned over! Rhyme, Sachs and all our favourite characters are back and hot on the trail of a US Government sniper who apparently wrongly murdered an innocent terror suspect. In true Deaver style nothing is straight forward and although there appears to several plots and even more sub plots, it's easy to keep abreast of the finer nuances as they progress in the book. It's fast paced and thrilling enough to keep you reading long after your bed time (if you are that way inclined). However, I would have loved to read more about Rhyme and Sachs' relationship and I was disappointed that this has not been progressed in the book. Overall, it's a great book and if you love the series, you will love The Kill Room too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another awesome book in the Jessica Daniel series., 1 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is Kerry Wilkinson's sixth book in the Jessica Daniel series and it's as great as, if not better, than the preceding five books. Jessica has recovered from her house fire, is seemingly happily married to Adam and is thrown into a violent crime investigation where the suffocated victims appear to be linked to a local crime boss. Sadly, everything's not smooth sailing when it comes to Jessica, as Adam seems to be acting very secretive as the book progresses, making Jessica fear the worst in terms if her future with him; her friend Izzy returns from maternity leave and constantly questions Jessica on her well being; and Dave Rowlands has declared his love to her, leaving Jessica to deal with all manner of personal problems the only way she knows...hiding from them. There are several violent scenes that are not too graphic, police procedural work and criminal life is portrayed very believably and our favourite characters are there to keep the pages turning very quickly. This was an "edge of your seat" thriller that leaves you wanting more even after you reach the end. I found myself reading in odd places and at weird times of the day and night just to get my Jessica fix. I'm sad that this book only got published a week ago as there is no prospect of another book just yet.


The Book of Souls: Inspector McLean 2 (Inspector Mclean Mystery)
The Book of Souls: Inspector McLean 2 (Inspector Mclean Mystery)
Price: £3.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Christmas brings gifts you don't want., 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is Oswald's second book featuring DI McLean and as with the first book there is a hint of the supernatural peppering the pages. In this instalment McLean is faced once again with the brutal murder of his fiancé a decade ago, when the person responsible for her murder, The Christmas Killer, dies in prison. However, there seems to be a copycat killer on the loose as more women are killed in the same brutal way. Amongst the mayhem of an active murder investigation, McLean loses is house in a fire started by some suspected drug dealers and he is forced to undergo regular counselling sessions. Shortly before Christmas, he has to move into his grandmother's old house and meets Noam Anton, a monk who was acquainted with the Christmas Killer. Anton repeatedly advised McLean to find the Book of Souls, an ancient tome that he believes controls the man who possesses it and forces them to commit atrocious murders. McLean's common sense prevails despite being repeatedly drawn into Anton's fantasy. As with Natural Causes, the book is fast paced and filled with gory scenes with just a hint of the supernatural. It is a great book to read if this is your genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hunting a killer or a demon? either way, this is a fantastic book., 19 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first book in the DI McLean series set in Fife, Scotland. The story kicks off to the gruesome discovery of a 60 year old corpse mutilated and nailed to the ground in an old building. What follows is an intricate series of seemingly unconnected and inexplicable deaths, murders and suicides mixed in with the suggestion of a virgin sacrifice and demonic possession. This is a thoroughly enjoying read that kept me captivated with each page. I can't wait to read the next DI McLean instalment, The Book of Souls.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much hype...but it's not for me., 8 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first in the DI Corrigan series wherein we meet Sean Corrigan, a detective inspector in the murder squad in London. The book kicks off with the violent murder of a gay male prostitute and the killer goes to extensive lengths to remain undetected. What sets this book apart from other murder mysteries is DI Corrigan's ability to read a crime scene in such detail so that he virtually gives a step by step account of the events that transpired before, during and after the murder. If you've recently watched the Hannibal TV series you will find similarities between DI Corrigan and Will Graham's abilities, but that's where it ends. There are many twists and plots and subplots to keep track of and it seems that James Hellier is the killer being hunted until about halfway through the book, it then becomes apparent that there may be an unknown third party who is committing the crimes. Although the premise is good and the murder scenes are sufficiently gory enough to keep any avid thriller reader entertained, I found the book too protracted. Furthermore, it lost it's appeal when DI Corrigan and one of his sergeants, DS Connelly, desperately decided to plant evidence on two separate suspects in order to secure arrests for people DI Corrigan categorically claimed were the killers as identified using his special skills. I think my biggest disappointment was finding out that the crafty murdered was not DI Corrigan himself. In any event, I won't be reading the next one in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A chilling gruesome read that leaves you begging for more., 30 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our missing persons investigator, David Raker, is hiding out in Devon in his parents' old cottage, recovering from an abdominal stabbing that took place six months before. He is, surprisingly, sharing his home with the disgraced ex-cop, Colm Healy, who spends most of his time intoxicated in an attempt to forget his past. Life seems reasonably domesticated between the guys until a corpse is found on the beech and Raker bumps into an ex-girlfriend's aunt. He is soon visited by his ex-girlfriend who asks him to look into the disappearance of her sister and her whole family. His investigation leads into shocking and unexpected ways that span a couple of continents and reaches back 75 years in the past. Once again Raker must do all he can to not only stay alive but also try and bring closure to his case. This is a fast paced, edge if your seat thriller that leaves you wanting more. The book concluded in such a manner that I had to check a few times that I truly reached the end. I cannot wait for the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the Homeland TV Series, 23 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been anticipating the release of this book and it definitely does not disappoint. There are many parallels with the TV Series including characters, milieu and Carrie's mental state. The story explodes off the first page with Carrie escaping an assassination attempt in Beirut. Despite battling her psychological demons with her emotions on a never ending roller coaster, she is still portrayed as this clear headed analyst amongst all the chaos. Her search for the double agents who facilitated the assassinate attempt leads her hot on the trail of Abu Nazier in Lebanon and Iraq. Whilst there, she discovered a terrorist plot against New York City and shows characteristic Carrie determination in trying to prevent it. Estes and Saul also feature prominently in the book and Virgil remains her go to surveillance guy. We are introduced to a new player, Abu Ubaida, who is Abu Nazier's right hand man planning multiple terrorist attacks. In her search for Abu Nazier and Abu Ubaida, Carrie leaves a wake of collateral damage and tries to deal with it as best she can. This is an action filled, gruesome, thrilling read and perfectly compliments the TV Series. If you enjoyed the show, don't miss this book.
