*Blog Tour Review: “Coming Darkness” by Susan-Alia Terry

 

Coming DarknessI wish I could say I was still in the bush for this review, but I got back home this morning, and I’m already missing the reserve. One good thing about coming home, is seeing my furbies again. I miss them so much when I’m away, and they were all thrilled to have me back.

Today’s review is for Coming Darkness, by Susan-Alia Terry once again hosted by  Rachel’s Random Resources.

Coming Darkness Complete

 

 

Archangel Lucifer lives a comfortable life of self-imposed exile with his vampire lover, Kai. When the other Archangels come to him with a problem — Heaven is gone and their Father is missing — he refuses to get involved because not only is it not his problem, but it’s probably some elaborate ruse they’ve cooked up to lure him back into the fold. When he’s personally attacked, he finds that he’s wrong on both counts. There are other powerful gods at work, gods who believe the current creation is flawed and must be destroyed.

Kai is thrown off balance when Lucifer disappears, and his life begins to spiral out of control. In the past, he never cared that he was looked down upon and called Lucifer’s pet. But with Lucifer absent, he’s left to navigate a world that doesn’t respect him. Since the only true currency is respect, he must gain it the only way his enemies will understand, through blood.

Quill Reviews

This is one of those books where the blurb simply doesn’t do justice to the story you get. Reading the blurb, I expected a paranormal romance, but what Terry delivers is a full-on fantasy world, complete with mythology, magic and an incredible cast of characters.

The other thing the blurb doesn’t give away is that this is the first in a series, which became clearer as the book continued with an ever-increasing complexity but no resolution. At all. None. At the end, I was left with a million questions, but no answers.

All I’m really going to say is that Coming Darkness delivered beyond my expectations, and I really hope that the series is now going to live up to the expectations I have for the rest of the story. There are so many developing plot lines that Terry will need to keep track of in this world, that I’m really looking forward to seeing how it will all resolve. This is one series I will probably be following through to the end, because I have so many questions:

  • Roberta is important to the resolution, right? Right?
  • Luc is going to get out of his predicament, isn’t he? Also, yay for telepathic Archangel brotherhood!
  • Kai… how is he going to survive the Ravening now?
  • Seriously, can someone just decapitate Stephan already? I want to punch him so badly.

 Coming Darkness gets four out of five feathers, for the sheer mind-boggling complexity of the world, and the mastery with which Terry weaves it all together.

Purchase the novel from Amazon.

About the Author

Coming Darkness - Author pic-cropped

They say it’s never too late to find and pursue your passion. Turns out they’re right. Although Susan loved to read, she didn’t start writing until she was in her late 40’s. A stint in grad school helped her hone her craft, and now she happily spends her days making up stories and figuring out how best to emotionally (and sometimes physically) torture her characters.

*Blog Tour Review: “The Haunting of Hattie Hastings – Part Two” by Audrey Davis

The Haunting of Hattie Hastings Part 2

Coming to you from the banks of the Olifants River in Limpopo, is a review of Part Two of The Haunting of Hattie Hastings in a blog tour hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources.

But before we get to that, here are some pictures of our visitor this morning:

Yes, folks, that is a bull elephant – no, there are no fences between us and him, and yes, he is a wild animal. He hung out with us for a couple of hours, just chilling and eating grass while we sat and watched him. He was so close, I could see his eyelashes!

And now, onto the review:

HHPt2image

The story continues … Hattie is used to her deceased husband Gary dropping in and out of her life. His timing might not always be great, but at least he’s still around. Although – when Hattie tentatively tries a spot of dating – his interference isn’t entirely welcome.
Best friend Cat is lapping up her new relationship with teacher Jamie, but ex-husband Stewart isn’t prepared to fade into the background.
Hattie’s mother Rachel faces a daunting battle, one she doesn’t want to burden family and friends with. But there’s someone waiting in the wings who might be more than a shoulder to cry on.
Gary still doesn’t know what his mission on earth is, and spirit guide Clarence isn’t offering any clues? Will an encounter with another provide him with answers, or put Hattie in an impossible situation?
Prepare for more laughs and tears in the second instalment of a trilogy which takes a darkly comic look at life … and the afterlife.
Warning: Cliffhanger ending

Quill Reviews

As you may have guessed, it would take a lot to distract me from watching the ellie, but Davis’ novella managed to pull my attention away from watching the river banks for game once he’d passed.

First off, if you don’t like cliffhanger endings, I’d recommend waiting to read this one until the third part is released later this year. It’s worth waiting for, and the story won’t disappoint.

The Haunting of Hattie Hastings is a lovely, quick read, which had me in tears at certain parts, and laughing out loud at others.

The story itself is well-written, although there are a few instances where I felt a bit confused by the transitions between scenes. Still, it didn’t detract from the characters or the plot.

I’m not sure if it’s a cultural thing or not, but the fact that Hattie is “not yet staring down the barrel of her third decade” but acts as if she’s nearing sixty in terms of how she considers dating and herself in general was a bit strange for me.

That aside, Hattie’s relationship with Gary (her deceased, ghostly husband), was sweet. Her dating experiences were horrific, and her pride in her son (who’s stepping into manhood), was just wonderful.

I had to fight the urge to smack Cat for her actions (spoiler alert for saying why, but it was infuriating and forms part of the cliffhanger).

Overall, I’m looking forward to the third and final installment of the trilogy, and seeing how it will all pan out.

The Haunting of Hattie Hastings gets four out of five feathers.

Purchase the novel from Amazon UK.

About the Author

2017-04-13 19.43.40

Audrey Davis survived secondary school on the West coast of Scotland. Rubbish at science but not too bad at English, she originally wanted to be an actress but was persuaded that journalism was a safer option. Probably wise. She studied at Napier College in Edinburgh, the only place in Scotland at that time to offer a journalism course.

Her first foray into the hard-nosed newspaper world was as a junior reporter in Dumfriesshire. Duties included interviewing farmers about the prize-winning heifers to reporting on family tragedies. She persuaded her editor to let her launch an entertainment column which meant meeting the odd celebrity – or just the downright odd. From there, she moved to the loftier rank of senior reporter back in her home patch. Slightly more money, less farm animals but a higher crime rate. As Taggart would say: ‘There’s been a murrrrder!’
After a stint in London on a video magazine – yes, she is that old – Audrey moved to Singapore with her fiancé. She tried valiantly to embrace the stinking heat, humidity and lack of jobs, although she did work briefly on a magazine which was banned by the government for ‘artistic’ use of naked men’s bottoms.

Next on her adventures was a land Down Under where her main focus was raising Cost Centre One (aka firstborn) and coming to terms with the imminent arrival of Number Two. Still, she loved the Aussie way of life – BBQs, beaches and bring your own booze to restaurants – so it came as a blow when OH announced a move back to the UK. Not a job between them, the climate a possible deal breaker and an Exorcist-style vomiting infant on the flight home didn’t bode well …

Always a survivor, Audrey sought out similar-minded friends (i.e. slightly bonkers), got the children into a good school and thought about taking up writing again. Sadly, thinking about it was as far as she got, unless you count shopping lists. Then, hubby drops another bombshell. Switzerland. As in – it’s packing time again. Off to the land of cheese, chocolate, scarily efficient trains and a couple of teeny, tiny issues. Like driving on the ‘wrong’ side of the road and speaking a foreign language (French). The former was conquered fairly quickly (we’ll skip over the wall demolition in week two), the latter remains an ongoing battle of the hopeful against the hopeless. At least she provides amusement for the local workforce.
It wasn’t until 2016 that Audrey rediscovered her writing mojo with an online Writing Fiction course. From there, her first novel – A Clean Sweep – was born, although it took a bit longer than nine months from conception. A short, darker prequel – A Clean Break – followed, and in November 2017 she published the first in a novella trilogy, The Haunting of Hattie Hastings Part One. Part Two is published on 21 March 2018, with the conclusion following in May/June. After which she might have a wee lie down …

*Blog Tour Review: “The Summer Will Come” by Soulla Christodoulou

The Summer Will Come

 

Today’s book review hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources is for The Summer Will Come by Soulla Chrostodoulou.

tswc front cover final final final

Set in the 1950s, the story begins in Cyprus. EOKA, British rule, and the fight for Enosis (unity) disrupt the world of two Greek Cypriot families, living in different villages on the island. They are desperately trying to cope with the unpredictability of this fractious time. Circumstances over a five-year period push both families to escape to London where, as immigrants, they struggle to settle, face new challenges, trauma and cope with missing their homeland’s traditions and culture. Both families’ lives cross paths in London and it seems that happier beginnings could be theirs. But at what cost? A story of passion for a country in turmoil, family love, loyalty and treachery and how, sometimes, starting over isn’t always as imagined.

Quill Reviews

As I write this review, I’m sitting in a lodge in the middle of the bush, surrounded by the sound of fruit bats, the occasional elephant, and a few grumpy hippos snorting from the river a few metres outside the lodge.

I wish I could describe it as beautifully as Christodoulou describes the worlds in her novel.

The Summer Will Come is an evocative, emotional read that immerses the reader in the world the characters inhabit. From the cloying heat of Cyprus, where civil war is on the rise, to the multi-cultural hub of London, the author takes you on a journey that spans years, countries and cultures.

While the story itself unfolds at a slow, leisurely pace, it is well worth savouring, as the senses are ignited by the descriptions of food, people, weather, and relationships, all coming together as if it were a marketplace of activity.

I loved the insight into the culture of Greece, the language and characters, the way they interacted with family and neighbours. The fear and isolation of moving to a new country, with foreign habits and different cultures, and finding a place to call home amidst the chaos.

The Summer Will Come gets four out of five feathers.

Purchase the novel from Amazon UK.

*Blog Tour Review: “No Comment” by Graham Smith

 

No Comment Try 1

Today’s book review hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources is for a novella featuring DI Harry Evans: No Comment, by Graham Smith.

No Comment

 

When a single mother, Julie Simon, is found in her kitchen with a stab wound to her stomach, Cumbria’s Major Crimes Team are handed the case. Under the supervision of DI Campbell and with advice from his former DI, Harry Evans, DC Amir Bhaki fights to discover who assaulted an innocent woman and left her with life-threatening injuries.

Nothing is as it first appears and when the team looks into Julie’s life they uncover a hidden sex-life that may just hold the key to the identity of her attacker.

Quill Reviews

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I took on No Comment to review. In my experience, crime detective novellas more often than not go one of two ways: boring, OTT details with little character development and a predictable plot; or too little details with a promising beginning, and then a weak ending. Very rarely does an author get it right in such a short length of space.

No Comment caught me by surprise. It was short, sharp, with an interesting twist, and it packed a punch on character development.

As a novella featuring characters from a longer series of books, there were hints at backstory, but they never really detracted from the impact of this particular case, which the Major Crimes team was working. If anything, it only added to it.

I loved the emotions, the reality of the trauma that police and detectives deal with when working on major crimes, and even though the end left me feeling lost and a little heartbroken, it was so true to life that I couldn’t fault Smith for doing that to me.

My favourite character out of the whole team has to be Lauren, who uses her sexuality to her advantage and takes no prisoners while doing it. Not even her boss gets away with his attraction to her.

More than that, I loved Harry Evans himself. Retired in this novella, he clearly has a lot of emotional trauma he needs to work through, but instead of tormenting himself and losing himself in alcohol or other unhealthy coping mechanisms, he tries to work through it in healthier ways. Although, Mr Evans, getting the snot beat out of you is not healthy, and hopefully that was a once off.

I thoroughly enjoyed No Comment, and will be on the lookout for the full-length novels from Graham Smith.

No Comment gets four out of five feathers.

Purchase the novel from Amazon UK or Amazon US

*Blog Tour Review: “Cruise with an Adorable Fat Girl” by Bernice Bloom + International Giveaway

Cruise With An Adorable Fat Girl

I’m thrilled to be taking part in another blog tour hosted by Rachel’s Random Resources, this time for the second book featuring the adventures of Mary Brown: Cruise with an Adorable Fat Girl by Bernice Bloom.

Mary Brown – our full-figured heroine – is off on a cruise. It’s the trip of a lifetime…featuring eat-all-you-can buffets and a trek through Europe with a 96-year-old widower called Frank and a flamboyant Spanish dancer called Juan Pedro in attendance. Then there’s the desperately handsome captain, the appearance of an ex-boyfriend on the ship, the time she’s mistaken for a Hollywood film star in Lisbon and tonnes of clothes shopping all over Europe.

Quill Reviews

Bernice Bloom has done it again with Cruise with an Adorable Fat Girl.

This time, Mary Brown is off on a thrilling cruise, as the guest of her blogger friend, Dawn. Dawn, however, ends up cancelling her cruise, leaving Mary alone on the ship, with an all-you-can-eat buffet disaster waiting to happen.

I really loved Bloom’s tale of Frank, the war hero and the focus on his story, told through Mary’s blogging exploits. She has to cover for Dawn, of course.

I wasn’t overly fond of Mary’s tendency to swoon over the captain – especially knowing that she had left loyal, loving Ted at home. But then again, I suppose men in uniform are just generally irresistibly appealing.

Overall, a lovely, warm-hearted story that showed that the only thing that out-weighed Mary’s tendency to overeat, was the size of her heart.

Cruise with an Adorable Fat Girl gets four out of five feathers.

Purchase the novel from Amazon UK.

About the Author

Hello, my name is Bernice Bloom and I am a writer (I write light-hearted rom-com style novels and also work as a magazine journalist and advertising copywriter) and jewellery designer. My recent series of novels is called ‘Adorable Fat Girl’ and it features a heavily overweight woman called Mary Brown. She is bright, funny, friendly and bonkers. She’s also fat. The books blend the comedy of her efforts to lose weight with a more serious backstory about what happened to her in the past that had led to the issues that make her prone to over-eating. I’m fascinated that there are so few overweight heroines in literature. Women can be manipulative, evil, even murderers in fiction, but not fat! Certainly not fat and beautiful with loads of friends! Then along came Mary and she’s developed quite a fan base of people who love the fact that the heroine is large. She gets lots of letters and I have ended up taking her on lots of adventures!

*Blog Tour Review: “The Deal” by S. C. Cunningham

The Deal Small Banner

The second book review for Rachel’s Random Resources today, is for The Deal, by S. C. Cunningham.

 

The Deal - Ebook

A Paranormal Thriller for those who dare to believe that there is something else out there…

At the age of four, Amy was taken…She survived.

A week later, another little girl was taken…She didn’t.

Angry that a bad man has gotten away with murder, feisty young Amy Fox makes a deal with God. When she dies, if she’s been a good girl, would God let her sit on a cloud for a while, invisible, to get bad people who slip through his fingers?

Her deal and God long forgotten, career girl Amy mysteriously dies. Her lifeless body is found beneath a London underground commuter train.

She awakens in the afterlife to discover an international network of like-minded souls who’ve all made the same deal. A sophisticated MI5-esque justice machine sits in the skies, protecting, righting wrongs, tracking criminals, and working within strict rules of play…all against time.

Each country’s Unit shares intelligence, surveillance, and resources to deactivate dangerous situations. The only evidence they leave behind during their earthly visits is a small white feather sashaying to the ground.

In a chaotic world, powerful adversaries try to close her Unit down. A complex SAS vigilante has been assigned to work as her partner, but with his jealous violent ex-girlfriend on her heels and with her own vendetta to settle, Amy has never worked so hard in her entire earthly life. She has to wonder if making a deal with God was a mistake.

Quill Reviews

I couldn’t have reviewed two completely different books on the same day if I’d tried (I didn’t, this was another accidental double booking), but nevertheless, I still enjoyed The Deal.

I struggled a bit with the pacing of the book, and just generally the character development, but I decided to ignore that because it is the first book in a series.

The premise itself is wonderful: fallen angels exacting instant karma on unsuspecting criminals – yes please! Sign me up for this deal, right now!

Amy and Jack are pretty impressive characters, and the story itself flowed quickly, even though there were some bizarre moments.

The Deal gets three out of five feathers.

Purchase the novel from Amazon UK or Amazon US

*Blog Tour Review: “The Best Boomerville Hotel” by Caroline James

 

 

I’ve got two (count them – two!) book reviews from Rachel’s Random Resources, today. The first is for The Best Boomerville Hotel by Caroline James.

You may remember that I did the Cover Reveal for this book, way back in January! Can you believe we’re almost at the end of March? I can’t!

I’m scrambling to catch up with all my reading, so my reviews are being posted quite late – great for my US readers. Not so great for poor Rachel in the UK, who has to organise these tours! Sorry Rachel!

Onwards then to the review:

TBBH high res cover

 

Let the shenanigans begin at the Boomerville hotel …

Jo Docherty and Hattie Contaldo have a vision – a holiday retreat in the heart of the Lake District exclusively for guests of ‘a certain age’ wishing to stimulate both mind and body with new creative experiences. One hotel refurbishment later and the Best Boomerville Hotel is open for business!

Perhaps not surprisingly Boomerville attracts more than it’s fair share of eccentric clientele: there’s fun loving Sir Henry Mulberry and his brother Hugo; Lucinda Brown, an impoverished artist with more ego than talent; Andy Mack, a charming Porsche-driving James Bond lookalike, as well as Kate Simmons, a woman who made her fortune from an internet dating agency but still hasn’t found ‘the One’ herself.

With such an array of colourful individuals there’s bound to be laughs aplenty, but could there be tears and heartbreak too and will the residents get more than they bargained for at Boomerville?

‘Britain’s answer to the Best Marigold Hotel! Book me in for Sharing with the Shaman and Clairvoyance in mid-life – this book is fabulous!’  – Nikki Ashton, Amazon best-selling author

Quill ReviewsI absolutely loved this book. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a sucker for old-school British humour, or feel-good true-to-life stories, but I think I’m just going to stick to books like this for future reading pleasure.

The Best Boomerville Hotel sort of reminded me a bit of Gerald Durrell’s escapades with his animals, mixed in with James Herriot style adventures, and the Best Marigold Hotel movie with Judi Dench.

It was charming, witty, funny, a bit silly and overall a feel-good story. Admittedly, there were some moments that irked me (I’ve just accepted that I’m a super-critical reader), but to find a book that makes me laugh out loud and enjoy the humour as much as this, is rare enough that I’m just going to leave this review here.

The Best Boomerville Hotel gets four out of five feathers.

Purchase the novel from Amazon, Kobo, Ibooks/Google, or iTunes.
