#Tuesdaybookblog #Bookreview Fallible Justice by Laura Laakso #urbanfantasy #paranormalcrime @LLaaksoWriter

I really enjoyed my first visit to Old London and meeting with so many interesting characters.

Blurb

In Old London, where paranormal races co-exist with ordinary humans, criminal verdicts delivered by the all-seeing Heralds of Justice are infallible. After a man is declared guilty of murder and sentenced to death, his daughter turns to private investigator Yannia Wilde to do the impossible and prove the Heralds wrong.
Yannia has escaped a restrictive life in the Wild Folk conclave where she was raised, but her origins mark her as an outsider in the city. Those origins lend her the sensory abilities of all of nature. Yet Yannia is lonely and struggling to adapt to life in the city. The case could be the break she needs. She enlists the help of her only friend, a Bird Shaman named Karrion, and together they accept the challenge of proving a guilty man innocent.
So begins a breathless race against time and against all conceivable odds. Can Yannia and Karrion save a man who has been judged infallibly guilty?

Firstly I’d just like to admire the cover, it’s so well designed and even though its dark it really stands out and draws the eye.

This book has some of my favourite elements, magic and mystery, in a modern day setting with a difference. There is so much depth to the character, her past, and the magic system in this world that it draws you in. I love the peppering of details that help you understand Yannia and her past, and I can’t wait to discover more about in the books to come.

I loved the magic in this book, in particular how Yannia can call up the senses of other animals and use them to see the world around her. There is also her daily struggle to live away from the natural magic, her pain is very well portrayed and makes you care for the character even more. There are lots of colourful yet mysterious characters that help Yannia along the way and I hope they will feature more in future books.

The crime itself is an interesting one. P.I’s are a personal favourite of mine and I just loved investigating this impossible crime with Yannia. The whodunit moment was great and the realisation of how the crime was committed completely surprised me.

It’s a great first book of what I’m sure will be an entertaining series with characters and a magic system I can’t wait to discover more about. So far there are 3 books in the series but I believe there are more to come.

I noticed it’s currently only 99p on Amazon. I recommend picking up a copy now. Let me know what you think.

#Bookreview Children of Sinai by Shelley Clarke @Shelley62628484

A compelling mystery I highly recommend.

Blurb

How would you feel if you got caught up in a secret so vast it threatened everything the world had come to believe?

That’s what happened to John Milburn, computer science lecturer, orphan, husband and father, who lived an ordinary life in Haverhill, Suffolk, England.

That is, until the dreams started…

From the idyllic calm of Cambridge, John Milburn is drawn to the dust and the heat of Jericho. Thrown into danger and intrigue, he discovers more than he’d bargained for.

‘A wowser of a tale that is exciting and thought-provoking with a cast of characters you’ll fall in love with. Inspired by Biblical events, historical finds, theories and the author’s own strange imagination.’

My Review

This was a really gripping and interesting book that challenges beliefs. It’s also one that I’ve found hard to categorise. Mystery, thriller, action adventure, apocalyptic…

The first half of the book is filled with questions as the mystery drags you in and then the action steps up as the pieces start to fall into place. I really liked the characters and quickly became invested in their story. I was fascinated by the idea of twins being at the heart of something so big.

The story takes an unexpected turn that I hadn’t seen coming. I was especially surprised when the novel came scarily close to the current worldwide crisis going on in 2020.

I loved how the past was interwoven with the present and how dreams play such a big part in the story. There was only one part when the characters are forced to set up a new community with others that have been singled out that I felt might have been a little rushed. It didn’t spoil my pleasure of the story nor my need to keep reading to find out the fate of humankind. And plenty happens as others seek to thwart their attempts to follow their destiny.

I can’t wait to read about what happens to civilisation after the shocking events at the end of book 1. I highly recommend this book.

You can buy Children of Sinai from Amazon.

#Bookreview Operation Dawn Wolf by GJ Stevens #thriller @stevens_gj

A very unique and clever thriller introducing you to agent Carrie Harris.

The Blurb

Book 1 of the Agent Carrie Harris Series

Formed of audio transcripts of covert recordings and team member journal entries, this file documents OPERATION DAWN WOLF, an EYES-ONLY covert operation to identify and terminate the perpetrators of ongoing [redacted] of the highly secret Special Operations candidate selection process.

The transcripts document the progression of covertly recruited 2Lt [redacted] (now known as Carrie Harris, aka Candidate Corra Hughes) through the agency’s Special Operations selection process, [redacted].

The files contain numerous redactions to protect the identities of current and past operations and operational agents, lowering the security status of the information from EYES ONLY to SECRET.

No details have been changed or edited, however the final report by [redacted] cannot be downgraded to SECRET and is therefore omitted.

This book is written in a very different way to anything I’ve read before. I wasn’t sure how it would work using transcripts to tell the story. Any fears I had that it might be boring or I’d fail to relate to the character were blown away within the first few pages. I was hooked on finding out the story of agent Harris’s past and the harrowing events of the recruitment she is going through. It’s not a job for the faint hearted that’s for sure and Carrie Harris is a badass.

With 40% left to read I thought I’d pick it up and read a few pages while I ate lunch. The next thing I knew an hour had past and I’d finished the book.

The end was satisfying and I hadn’t seen it coming at all. This is an intriguing story and I’m really looking forward to book 2 to see how Carrie takes on her new role.

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys spy thrillers, or who would like to try something a little bit different. This is definitely worth a read.

4.5 stars

#Bookreview Fire-walker Series by Emma Miles #fantasy #epicfantasy @EmmaMilesShadow

I have had the great pleasure of reading the Fire-Walker series by Emma Miles and I wanted to share it with you.

I haven’t written a proper review in a long time, but this series has inspired me to share some book love. Keep reading to see why I loved it so much.

Book One The Raven Tower

The Blurb

How much would you sacrifice to save your people? Your freedom, your home … power … love … your life?


Four lands beneath the sky. A haven of peace, a kingdom of plenty, ravaged islands, and a nation of cruel, dark magic. One will try to devour them all.

Spring brings the ruthless Borrow raiders much earlier in the year, their attacks more ferocious, more desperate. When Kesta uses her magic to see in the flames who is really behind the raids the Independent islands of the Fulmers seem doomed to fall. Their only hope is to cross the sea to seek the help of the King of Elden and his dangerous sorcerer, the Dark Man; but what price will the king demand for his aid?


Wild Kesta has been raised to be a leader, trusted, loved, with the freedom of her cherished Islands. Can Kesta subdue her fiery nature and work with a man she hates, a man she fears, to stop the evil that will consume their lands and enslave them all?

My Review

Sometimes you pick up and book and know from the very first few lines that you are going to love it. That’s what happened to me and I was so glad I found Emma Miles’ books through the blog tour she ran with Rachel’s Random Resources.

I love a book where you’re not sure which characters you can trust and no one is quite what they seem. The Raven Tower has plenty of mystery surrounding certain characters like Jorrun and I loved how Kesta is thrust into this very different life to save her people. Your understanding grows with Kesta’s and your are drawn in deeper with her.

I applaud the world building in the Fire-Walker series and the magic of the different cultures is very cool. Kesta’s home the Fulmer’s is probably my favourite place and you can understand her desire to save it and her longing to return there when she is locked away with the Dark Man!

I don’t want to reveal too much but just to say The Raven Tower is a magical, fantasy adventure with just the right amount of romance, mystery and intrigue to satisfy any reader.

Book Two The Raven Coven

I won a paperback in a blogging competition last year via twitter. It was only as I received the book that I realised it was book 2 in a series and I didn’t have book 1! Stupid me for not paying attention, but then who cares I just bought book 1 and started reading it when my book club decided to read The Raven Tower by another ‘famous’ author. I couldn’t get on with the other book but Emma Miles wowed me from the start and I wish the book club had chosen her book instead.

Without giving too much away from the plot, book two continues with the same characters you fell for in the first book, but there are even more twists and turns and heartbreak ahead. I had my heart broken a few times and I’m sure when you read it you’ll find out why!

This book had a satisfying conclusion to the series and I expected it to end there with the usual emotions inspired by a great book, happiness at the awesome ending and tears that it’s really over. BUT the author noted she plans to write at least two more in the series. I’m excited for this, though I hope the characters will get a breather for a while.

The Fire-Walker series has that page-turning quality which can lead to some very late nights if you haven’t got a moaning grump next to you asking you to turn out the light!

I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys magic and adventure, characters you’ll want to spend hours reading about and a world you never want to leave!

Visions of Zarua #Audiobook blog tour wrap up #epicfantasy #fantasy

Over the last five days lots of lovely bloggers have been reviewing the audiobook of Visions of Zarua and I’m excited to share a few snippets from their posts, plus links to the in depth reviews. Here’s a reminder of those involved.

Visions of Zarua Full Tour Banner

Mai’s Musings  ‘Having discovered Suzanne’s Silent Sea Chronicles earlier this year and fallen totally in love with them, I was excited to see what Visions of Zarua had to offer. I approached this book with extremely high hopes and I wasn’t disappointed. Although narrated by a male narrator, I found that Suzanne’s signature style and writing voice resonated throughout, giving me, as a fan of her work, a familiar, welcoming feel that absorbed me instantly. Once again her exquisite attention to detail shines through…’

Rev. Rebecca Writers: Read, Write, Pray  ‘I found this book to be fresh and unique because the author combines my favorite elements of fantasy with an engaging and suspenseful mystery. I was on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t stop listening…’

In De Boekenkast  ‘I loved this book set in a world full of imagination and amazing characters. The audiobook with the wonderful storyteller is amazing and gives the mystery set a special touch…’

Writing with Wolves  ‘If you like original & deeply detailed fantasies with magic & assassins then you seriously need to give this book a read… or a listen!’

Jess Bookish Life  ‘The narrator had a type of voice that grabbed my attention, and following all the POVs and all the characters was even more fun, especially when I would close my eyes and imagine what was being narrated. It allowed my imagination to run wild by just listening…’

Splashes into Books  ‘The narrator for the audiobook version has a fantastic, clear and expressive voice for bringing the story to life in the imagination of the reader, making it clear just who is talking and using a variety of cadence to keep the listener engaged and enthralled. Even though I’d read the story and remembered much of what happened (which shows how well written it is) I still listened with eager anticipation to the audiobook version.’

Reviewsfeed ‘Guy Barnes’ narration of the storyline. Can I say, he does a fantastic job of bringing each of the characters, major or minor, to life. Each is distinctively unique in the persona he has given them. The variety of accents he pulls off consistently is amazing too.’

Donnasbookblog  ‘I thought that this was a well written and well developed fantasy story with an added element of mystery and it really had me hooked right from the start.’

Alistenersslant ‘I loved everything about this from the first word to the last, I was drawn in and hooked and didn’t want to leave. The characters, the setting, the sights, sounds and descriptions well all right on the money.’

***

It’s wonderful to see that the audiobook has been so well received, but I shouldn’t be surprised as Guy Barnes made such a brilliant job of the narration. If you missed it, here’s a sample.

Book Review: The Sentinel’s Reign by Suzanne Rogerson

I just had to share this brilliant review of The Sentinel’s Reign – book 2 in Silent Sea Chronicles.

‘…Wow, this is another brilliant installment of the Silent Sea Chronicles which left reeling after the many twists and turns, which I wasn’t expecting, especially towards the ending.  I haven’t been able to get this story out of my head for several days now, and I just can’t wait to read the final part!’

The Sentinel’s Alliance is 1 month old! #fantasy #bookreview excerpts

The month since The Sentinel’s Alliance was released has been a hectic one.

I’ve thrown myself into the task of finding my audience in the local community with things like a market stall, a pop up craft shop in my local shopping centre, attending a WI meeting with a view to doing a talk for a local group in the coming months and I’ve also met up with a group of local business women who help and support each other.

I’m hoping to be interviewed on local radio and am still trying to get my books into the local libraries. I’ve also signed up to be a part of Hastings Litfest on 31st August where I’ll have my own book stall. I’m looking forward to being in the birthplace of my hero and writing legend David Gemmell. Let’s hope the people of Hastings are up for some new fantasy blood!

I’ve had lots of reviewers and bloggers supporting my trilogy and posting their thoughts this past month. I can’t tell you how nerve-wracking it was to publish the last book in the trilogy. The fear that I had got something wrong has been blown away by their wonderful reviews. I shared a few snippets in this publication day push wrap up post, and today I thought why not celebrate the publication month by sharing a few more.

Angela – Pooled Ink ReviewsThe Sentinel’s Alliance is a thrilling conclusion to this unique trilogy of fantasy, magic, destiny, secrecy, and war. Characters come and characters go all while battle is waged for the future of magic in the isles of the Silent Sea. Exciting, determined, and satisfying, this series is one any fantasy reader might enjoy.’

Karen – My train of thought ‘I was drawn into the story right away – very close to Tei, Brogan, and some wonderful allies, highly appreciating their integrity. As I assumed after reading the first book, I got closer to Tei in the second instalment because she has gained a little more maturity; this third instalment turned her into a friend. I could easily envision the characters and locations. I had a great time reading “The Sentinel’s Alliance”. It is a very enjoyable read; a more than worthy completion of the ‘Silent Sea Chronicles’ trilogy.’

Sofii – A Book. A ThoughtIn this third book, we can appreciate more the alliances that have been forged during the previous books, in addition, there are many more characters, some new one and some who return to make our hearts happy. I think that Tei, Brogan, and Farrell are all characters that, although they’re very different from each other, achieved great growth and seeing how each one fights against their own demons while trying to fight for a common good, is sensational. I also enjoyed the dynamics and relationships between them, it was very entertaining to read.’

Great quotes aren’t they!

I’d love for the series to get some more exposure and I’d love to see some more reviews going up so other readers can see the series is worth their time. Are you up to the challenge?

Check out the Silent Sea Chronicles on Amazon and Goodreads.

Now I must get back to my holiday in the beautiful Shropshire countryside.

Wrap up post Pt 3 of The Sentinel’s Alliance Publication day #bookreviews #fantasy #trilogy

This is my last wrap up post and will be highlighting the brilliant reviews that came in on 6th July for The Sentinel’s Alliance. As it’s the last part in the trilogy I was very nervous how the day would go, especially as 14 bloggers were reviewing, but I’m so happy to say the conclusion to the series was well received.

I’ve loved reading the reviews again and reminding myself that I really did achieve a whole trilogy. Not only that but a lot of people seemed to like it, some even loved it! That has made me very happy indeed.

blog banner

First a spotlight post from Satisfaction for insatiable readers.

Now the reviewers blog links and quotes…

Radzy Writes – ‘…this is a strong novel in an excellently written series, and one I enjoyed a lot. If you’ve fallen head over heels for this series so far, I think you’re going to devour this novel.’

Mai’s Musings – ‘…amongst her beautifully crafted world, Suzanne Rogerson has created a story that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, and I couldn’t read the book fast enough to answer all the questions forming in my mind.’

J Bronder Book Reviews – ‘This is a great conclusion to the series… I have really enjoyed this series and strongly recommend it to those that enjoy fantasy stories. There is a little bit of everything in these books. I can’t wait to read more from Suzanne Rogerson.’

K T Robson – ‘This has been a fantastic finale to the trilogy, it’s had everything that made the first two books to good and then some. All of Suzannes brilliant world building skills are still shining through… I have loved watching the characters grow and develop throughout this trilogy, and it was great seeing them band together for the final instalment.’

Seans book reviews – ‘The conclusion to this series was one of ups and downs.  The characters are still strong and ones that I will remember for a long time.’

Jessica Belmont – ‘I love this series, and I’m sad to see it end. I took longer to read this one, because I wasn’t ready to leave this world or these characters. I love Suzanne Rogerson’s writing. I can’t wait to read more from her. I highly recommend this series! You won’t want to miss it!’

The Treasure within – ‘This book was EVERYTHING I’d hoped it would be. I’ve loved the first two books of the series, and was very happy indeed with how everything worked out in this one. I’ve fallen in love with pretty much the entire cast of characters, and by now, want the best for all of them. That, I’d say, is a sign of a good bit of writing!’

Yes more blogs – ‘WOW!! Unbelievable. Amazing. Brilliant. Wonderful. Beautiful. Just a few words to describe not just this book but the whole trilogy has been an undeniably amazing read… The world building is some of the best I’ve read. With a little bit of your own imagination you are transformed into a beautiful magical world. That has it’s highs and lows like any good story. I’m usually quite good at where a book is headed but this has lots of surprises, twists and turns which had me up most nights as I had to know what was going to happen.’

Pagefarer book blog – ‘…her skill lies in intertwining separate storylines, and in writing truly dislikable (yet sometimes nuanced) bad guys – and vice versa. She is still not shy about killing off main characters – which I quite enjoy!’

Terror Tree – ‘As I was reading this story, I thought I knew where this story was going, but there were a few surprises that I did not see coming and I did spend time just sitting in amazement at what I had just read. This series has been a great read and I have enjoyed watching all the characters grow and adapt to whatever was thrown at them.’

In de Boekenkast Link to review on facebook – ‘What a captivating and lovely fantasy book! …This fantasy series is fast paced, amusing and original with a lot of unexpected situations, characters that grow with every book and an intriguing plot line.’

Novel Kicks – ‘The writing is relaxed and easy to read, the story is well paced and doesn’t dawdle; keeping you drawn through the book. The characters are likeable, if a little thin in places, but all in all they are well formed.’

Cheryl M-M Book Blog – ‘It’s fantasy with a compelling plot and intriguing characters. Rogerson threads an undercurrent of romance throughout the fantasy, which then invites readers of other genres in for a read.’

Odd Socks and Lollipops– ‘…I love the world that Suzanne Rogerson has created and I was so not ready to leave the characters behind. The Sentinel’s Alliance is a wonderful conclusion to the series…  The writing style was wonderfully immersive and the world building built on the earlier books brilliantly. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole series and I cannot wait to read more from Suzanne. If you like epic fantasy stories, then I would definitely recommend the Silent Sea Chronicles, they are a fantastic example of the genre.’

***

Wow, I’m overwhelmed with these reviews and feel so honored these bloggers agreed to read and take part in the publication day push. I hope you’ve enjoyed these snippets and have had a chance to check the reviews in more detail.

If you’ve been inspired to try the trilogy over the last few weeks of reviews and posts, then the good news is I will be keeping the sale price of each book in the trilogy at 99p for a few more days.

The Lost Sentinel      The Sentinel’s Reign       The Sentinel’s Alliance.

Thanks for reading and thanks again to those who took part, and to Rachel for organising everything.

A QUICK PLEA TO EVERYONE – If you have read any of my books would you consider putting a quick review on Amazon and Goodreads?

I plan to approach the libraries about stocking my books and would love to be able to show them how much people have enjoyed the trilogy. I’ve also entered the Amazon storyteller prize. I doubt a third book would get very far in the competition, but its always worth a try. Thanks very much.

Day 6 recap Silent Sea Chronicles #blogtour #fantasy #bookreview

This is a quick recap of the reviews that came in on Day 6 of the blog tour.

A couple of new reviews for The Lost Sentinel

Mai’s Musings – ‘The Lost Sentinel is a rich storyline told from various viewpoints, and as I tried to work out how these would all intertwine over the course of the books, I found I was asking more and more questions, and reading faster and faster. It is the sort of book that you want to read slowly so it doesn’t end, but at the same time you can’t help but race through.’

The Treasure Within Blog – ‘Tei is a resilient character, but not a perfect person, by any means. She makes numerous mistakes and bad choices, and is forced to deal with the consequences of her actions. It’s refreshing to read a character who’s author really wasn’t afraid to supply with flaws – and it makes Tei feel much more realistic overall. In the writing world, a very focused- on fact is the necessity of providing characters with flaws – and I think Suzanne Rogerson has done a stellar job of it.’

 

The Sentinel’s Reign – book 2 in Silent Sea Chronicles also hit the spotlight with reviewers.

Jessica Belmont – ‘What I love about The Sentinel’s Reign is that it doesn’t struggle from “middle book syndrome.” The plot is great, the characters are developing, and this doesn’t feel like just a bridge from book one to book three!’

PageFarer Book Blog – ‘I said in my last review that Rogerson is good at writing bad guys; this is still the case but another thing to add to that is the depiction of injustice – something that always gets to me in the real world, and the unfairness of which I found was genuinely affecting me at times.’

The Treasure within – ‘A small character from the first book was picked up again in this narrative, and expanded into a more main member of the cast. She was honestly one of my favourites throughout the book – a young but powerful magic-wielder, with uncanny senses and the kindest of hearts. She stole my heart, and I hope to read more of her in the third book!’

Thanks very much to the reviewers on this tour, you’ve made this last week awesome!

 

There are still a few more days on the tour to go so I hope you can join me again.
