5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Civil War Romantic Adventure, 22 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A richly detailed, complex story that is sensual and romantic and at the same time has plenty of intrigue and adventure. The characters are beautifully drawn and deep. Louise really brings out their divided loyalties and the conflicts of the Civil War period. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Compulsive Thriller, 2 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was recommended to me by a friend. I'm a big fan of crime and thrillers but seldom pick up dystopian thrillers. In this case I'm glad I did. The plot is taut and gripping and I soon became immersed in KC Abbott's sinister alternative future world. The story had me on the edge of my seat and whilst it wasn't always a comfortable read it was always a compelling one. The intricate plot and complex characters made this an all round brilliant book and the first in what promises to be a very interesting series. More, please!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A superb guide packed full of historical detail that is as entertaining as it is interesting. Perfect for the modern day driver following in the footsteps of Regency travellers or for any reader looking for an insight into what it was like to journey along the Great North Road in the Regency period.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rip-roaring romantic adventure!, 1 April 2010
This review is from: Till the Day Go Down (Paperback)
This is a rip-roaring romantic adventure that grabs the reader from the first page and never lets go. Jen Black conjures beautifully the wild, dangerous world of the English Scottish border in the Tudor era and the reckless, warring men - and women - that inhabit it. Her descriptions are so vivid that they transport the reader right into the heart of the story.

Harry is an engaging hero, dashing, courageous and with just enough hard-headed realism about the need to choose a rich bride to make him entirely believable and make the reader sympathetic to his conflicting desires. Alina is his match, a heroine whose behaviour is true to the conventions of her time but who nevertheless displays plenty of spirit. Their attraction is instant and their love story irresistible. They are supported by a rich and well drawn cast of characters who are a joy to meet. The plot gallops along at a cracking pace with plenty of intrigue thrown in to keep you turning the pages to the end. I loved it!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Engaging, 22 Mar. 2010
This review is from: The Crimson Bed (Paperback)
How refreshing to read a historical romance set against such a lush and unusual background. I revelled in this sumptuous depiction of the Pre-Raphaelite period. The story is multi-layered and rich in symbolism and the detail is exquisitely drawn, conjuring up both the vivid atmosphere of the period and the complexities of the secrets and lies that bind the characters. Fred and Ellie are multi-dimensional and deep and the reader is drawn into their lives and their struggles. I loved the little insights the author gave into all the characters; the wise observations that made them jump off the page and become real to me. The book is a page-turner too - I couldn't put it down. Rich and multi-faceted, this is a book for anyone who enjoys a beautifully written and original historical romance.

Silence and Shadows
Silence and Shadows
by James Long
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable book, 15 Mar. 2001
This review is from: Silence and Shadows (Paperback)
It's not often I find a book that I can't bear to put down, but this was the one! I took it everywhere with me! "Silence and Shadows" is wonderfully evocative and atmospheric. The story of "The German Queen" and the parallel story of Patrick's struggle to move on from the past were both compellingly told and there is a mystical touch to the whole tale. Absolutely wonderful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Witty, clever and enthralling, 15 Mar. 2001
This review is from: Unnatural Fire (Paperback)
Unnatural Fire is the best historical crime story that I have read in a very long time. Packed full of the sights and scents of London and full of fascinating snippets of historical information, the story crackles with life. The characters are funny and well drawn and the plot twists are cunning. A great read!
