5.0 out of 5 stars Magic, menace and King Henry IX...., 11 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful take on alternative Tudor history, with a unique touch of the supernatural. Dark forces seek to destroy the very heart of England: the fate of the monarchy depends upon the skills of one Elemancer.
A cracking good read, underpinned by immaculate research. This series will surely achieve great success.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exotic escapism, 1 Oct. 2010
This enjoyable tale has it all. Romance, conflict, high drama and the clashing of very different cultures.
Feisty Emily and proud, honourable Rafi disagree on almost everything, but cannot deny their mutual attraction.
Spiced with warm winds and suffused with sunshine, the Moroccan setting is a deliciously perfect background for family tension, villainous deeds, and of course, Romance. Charming and well-crafted, this one is a perfect winter-warmer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly gripping!, 6 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Torc of Moonlight (Paperback)
Forget 'Twilight'. Forget Robert Holdstock. This supernatural thriller has the lot.
Student Nick, obsessed with the ethereal Alice, spirals out of control as the sinister shade of long-dead Roman Ognirius feeds off him and grows towards his eventual re-embodiment.
The historical detail is immaculate, as is the authentic detail of modern student-life, the whole suffused with a rich pagan sexuality as the plot twists towards its terrifying (pardon the pun) climax.
I cannot recommend this novel highly enough, and guarantee a great read from page one.


Murder at Oakwood Grange
Murder at Oakwood Grange
by Avril Field-Taylor
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A rollicking good read!, 12 Nov. 2009
Having previously devoured Avril Field-Taylor's murder-mystery "Dearly Ransomed Soul", I expected great things from her second novel, and I certainly wasn't disappointed. This superb Sherlock Holmes pastiche ticks every box, and sees Holmes, in the words of Doctor Watson,'tackling the most important and dangerous case he ever undertook.'
A vibrant Victorian London suffuses every page, the language rich in vernacular, and the labyrinthine plot a guaranteed page-turner.
The pace never falters as one dastardly action succeeds another, and we are very soon aware that danger lurks round every corner, and nothing is as it seems. From seemingly uncomplicated beginnings, Holmes and Watson find themselves pitted once more against the ruthless Moriarty, whose machinations threaten the Government, the Royal family, indeed the very fabric of British society.
Will the combination of Watson's stout courage and Holmes' towering intellect be enough to save the day? I urge you to buy this book and find out...the ghost of Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle would surely give it his stamp of approval.

5.0 out of 5 stars You've got us all hooked, lad, 17 Sept. 2009
This long-awaited sequel ticks all the right boxes. Whilst the tender thread of Mike and Ann's developing romance runs right through the narrative, PC Pannett is not one to shy away from the hard-edged realities of rural policing, managing to strike the perfect balance between action and emotion.
The author's obvious love for his North Yorkshire environment adds an extra dimension to what is already a bloody good read: roll on book 3!

5.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Faith, 17 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Breaking Faith (Paperback)
This is the story of a triumphant human spirit. Heroine Faith's rite of passage from horrific neglect and abuse to fulfilment and true love is an inspiring one. Stuart Aken's novel, set in the summer of 1976, simmers with heat, decadence and sexuality,all of which Faith transcends to become her own woman. I loved the Yorkshire Dales setting, and I was rooting for Faith all the way to her well-deserved happy ending. More power to Stuart's pen!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dearly ransomed soul, 4 Jan. 2009
This review is from: Dearly Ransomed Soul (Paperback)
A good, pacey whodunnit in the best English tradition....with larger-than-life characters and a great sense of place.
Georgia Pattison is funny, feisty, gobby and also an excellent sleuth.
The plot twists like a pole-dancing python, never flagging on its way to the unexpected denouement....and through it all runs a deep and knowlegeable seam of musicality that lifts "Dearly Ransomed Soul" out of the ordinary and into a higher realm.
More Georgia, please, and soon!
