  • Becoming Milla Blaire: Anomaly on March 17, 2013

    A fast good read that keeps you guessing The hero is the kind of girl you'd like to slap and then cuddle. She's a product of her families affluent lifestyle and in spite of many appearances to the contrary, she still has a good heart and a sense of right from wrong. Milla needs a sense of belonging and somewhere other than her own family. The plot twists this way and that, dropping clues in all the right places so you expect the conclusion to be the usual kind of contemporary genre..nah...Can Milla Blaire save us?...I hope so...
  • Shell Song on May 03, 2013

    Conflict and Beauty in a Watery Paradise Humans are visiting Melusine and being human ourselves we all can imagine why - for profit...only there are already humans on Melusine and the planet has changed them. There is an intelligent native species there too and the once-human have taken the only surface land on Melusine as homes, cities carved out of coral remains thrusting out of the sea. However, the native merrow need the land for spawning...and both are prepared to fight. The scientific survey team includes a young woman, Dionia, she is insular and insecure and feels no kindness towards her own kind, and unknowingly she also brings the watery planet a gift. A gift that the human Melusine need desperately, only to use her gift they need a shell they have lost in the deep, dark cold of the ocean for without it they will perish; only by making it sing can sense prevail. The terrifying search for the shell will make those frightened of the deep, dark ocean shiver and the sound of the song will lift their heart and soul. A beautifully written and heartfelt book suitable for anyone who can feel and soar and love.
  • Seeking Angel on March 09, 2014

    Criminal Minds on Steroids. This book was hard to get into, why? NOT because it was badly written or boring; quite the opposite. It feels very real; too real, too evil for my comfort; everything I detest. I know dominatrix exist; Tory MP's and their Nanny left-overs and all that are hysterically funny. However this murder mystery isn't funny at all. Bit of a giggle, no, this isn't a giggling matter either. I'd read the Authors The Secret Empire and thoroughly enjoyed it and so kept going and as soon as Bull arrived I hoped the story was on a more even keel, it was, apart from some interesting deviations from the police norm. Not for the faint-hearted, but if you like brutal murder mysteries than you'll enjoy the ride and I won't give away the ending but the more we know about the characters, the more we know it has to have a very exciting sequel, which I'm looking forward to reading. A rogue Bull on the rampage.
  • The Ancients and the Angels: Celestials on July 20, 2014

    Took me awhile to get a grip on this book but I am so glad that I didn't give up on it. I'm not sure why that was; perhaps because I was trying to get my new bearings; another civilisation on this world before us? I liked that; the author obviously read the same books and was taken by the same, maybe wacky theories that I was as a child. My mind slipped right back to the idea that another civilisation existed before us and it was thought that as we can't find any sign of them, their ruins are crushed beneath the south polar ice so we will never find the truth. Delicious, crazy ideas; opens up so many possible futures. What was apparent right from the start was the authors sharp observations about the world we live in, and then the tongue in cheek transfer of those observations to the one before. Why for example did they just believe whatever the media told them? Loved it; couldn't put it down and I felt like a child again; only I'm not sure if I were still a child I'd get the in-jokes. A parody on our whole of way of life. Only read if you have a sense of humour, are well-read in many subjects and genres, a comic child, toyed with the ideas of Chariots of the Gods and decided; well, anything is possible, but... Great fun, horrific, fast paced and very hard to put down.
  • Recognizing a Demon on Nov. 27, 2014

    You just know there is more coming.... Quirky YA novella, written in a colloquial style that makes the characters feel real. You know the moment that Jamilla walks in the hairdressing salon that she is really BIG trouble; the state of her companion says it all. AND you know too that there is a lot more coming; it could get very scary. Look forward to it.
  • Morning 7 As It Is. on Nov. 03, 2019

    Most free from belief wonder about after death. Some deny there is anything, other's imagine a computer like existence waiting for another existence and this imagines a heavenly world free at last from the pain of life. It is beautifully written with glorious descriptions, and memories of the before death merging into the after. Well worth a read.
