If X Factor wannabies can give 110%, why can't I give this six stars? It's brilliant!
It would be easy (but misguided) to pigeon-hole this book as supernatural fantasy, and to pass it by because of that would be like deciding not to read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy because you don't like science-fiction, or Aberystwyth Mon Amour because you don't like gumshoe crime stories.
A compelling storyline, brilliantly conceived characters, sharp, witty writing and flawlessly voiced dialogue combine to make this a novel that's impossible to put down. Can I have some more please?
A fantastic read! I have always enjoyed series of books that develop the characters and open up their developing lives to the readers. But it takes real talent (and imagination) to grab people's interest and make each book a 'must read'. It is clear that this is one such and I'm awaiting the next volume with much anticipation and not a little impatience!
I do enjoy reading well-written crime novels, but am often disappointed that so few authors find a different take on the genre. Holly Harlow (both author and character!) is/are brilliantly original and take the reader on a roller-coaster journey of action, emotion and discovery.
I have no hesitation in giving this book five stars and recommending it to all readers, even if you think crime thrillers aren't your thing.
