I have to admit, I decided to read this because I enjoyed the film – but of course I didn’t go into it expecting any real similarities. I can see why the film is so different; a large majority of the book involves Neville going around his day-to-day life just to stay alive – fixing […]

I admire the author for choosing self-publishing over a publishing house. He clearly has a great passion for writing. He tackles some difficult and dark subjects, but as someone who suffered from depression for several years, to me it doesn’t feel like it is written by someone who has experienced these emotions. The last line […]

**spoiler alert** This review is quite hard to write, because I really wanted to enjoy this book. It was very promising to begin with – one thing I’ve noticed about many of the paranormal romances I’ve read, is that they’re very basically written. The authors tend to avoid description, and I was happy to see […]

I like to think that I’m a fast reader. Generally the speed at which I read a book – assuming I have the time – reflects how much I’m enjoying it. And although I did enjoy this book, it was such a slow read. I have no idea why, but it just seemed to drag, even […]

**spoiler alert** Although this book is actually a sequel, I did not feel at all hindered by the fact that I hadn’t read the first one. It pretty much jumps straight into fast-paced action, which I really liked, as well as flowing smoothly. I did feel as though the laboratory seemed to lack a lot of procedures […]

**spoiler alert** I have to admit, when I started out reading this book, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to it. I’d just finished a load of sci-fi and fantasy and was very much in the mood for some more, and the blurb of this made me think it was going to be very depressing.Whilst Ruth […]

When I won this through Goodreads, I really looked forward to its arrival as fantasy is one of my favourite genres and this was the first fantasy novel I’d won. I have to say, the general plot – normal girl finds out she has a connection with another world and can travel between it and […]

This book generated some really interesting ideas – if you are brought up in a violent environment, does it lead you to become violent yourself? Despite his inner battles, realising how easily he could kill people, and his sociopathic tendencies, Jasper was a really likeable character. He was cocky, but not too much so, determined, […]

**spoiler alert** The Painted Man was a fantastic book. It builds up a world of lore and magic – and The Desert Spear builds so much more on top of it. Whereas The Painted Man followed several of the protagonists from a young age to the beginnings of adulthood, The Desert Spear covers a shorter period of time, apart from the first […]
