  • Jack Hunter Secret of the King on Aug. 23, 2011

    Without giving too much away this book revolves around the adventures of Jack Hunter (12) and his faithful new friends as he tries to unearth the secrets and treasure of an ancient mystery passed down to him by his grandfather. It has the charm of Indiana Jones meets the famous five, and some hidden clues coupled with a clever online interactive ‘treasure hunt’ definitely demonstrates the potential for an addictive and well designed children’s series. The book itself reads well, is incredibly imaginative, and the storyline is as unpredictable as it is fast-paced. There is also just the right balance of historical factoids and fictional myth to encourage the reader to perhaps find out more about the English monarchy without being overbearing. It’s clear that it has been independently/self-published by a few typographical errors, but as Ebooks are not as tied to the final version as much as paperbacks this can be easily fixed. Otherwise I found it well-written and difficult to put down (even as an older reader) and especially as I approached the closing chapters.
  • The Captive on Sep. 24, 2011

    Imagine waking up to find yourself tied to a beam with blood dripping on you from above... This short intense offering considers just that scenario and follows it through superbly to its dramatic conclusion.
  • The Gathering on Sep. 24, 2011

    Danielle collects people for 'reprogramming', believing that it's preferable to the life they would lead otherwise. But is it ever right to interfere with a civilisation in such a brutal way? Overall I enjoyed this short, even though it is clearly designed as a prequel to a more involved book, as it was still self-contained.
  • Wanderer on Sep. 24, 2011

    Grigori, also known as Wanderer, treads the expanse of post-war Russia trading information between settlements. One night, when forced to camp outside he comes across another traveller who introduces himself as Sunrise... Incredibly well researched, this short would definitely work well as an introduction to a longer narrative.

  • The Caline Conspiracy on May 13, 2012

    “No that’s not a typo – the Caline in this conspiracy is a genetically engineered pet, which at first glance could be classed as a Canine. The mad scientist behind this ‘perfect’ personalised pet is Dr Frithke, and he’s apparently just been murdered by his own Caline – Madeline. Open and shut case? Maybe, but the widow is convinced that something is amiss and she’s called in a P.I. to some digging.” I have to admit that this book was not quite what I expected from the blurb and continuing along the line of honesty – I was also supposed to be reviewing another book this week but in a brief moment of weakness I took a peak and got sucked in. Before I knew what had happened I’d eaten my way through the 200+ pages and suddenly had to find something else to do… or perhaps to start communicating with the outside world again… Read full review at: http://indieebooks.wordpress.com/2012/05/13/the-caline-conspiracy-by-m-h-mead/
