Patriot Penned as a mind-blowing thriller and suggested as recommended reading for fans of Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy or Robert Ludlum, Patriot certainly promises an engaging read. A modern-day thriller, it follows Brooke Kinley, a young reporter with a penchant for discovering the truth and tackles themes such as terrorism and espionage. Patriot was a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards, 2015, was one of Shelf Unbound’s ‘notable books of 2014,’ and has a staggering 90 reviews on […]

The Drowned Phoenician Sailor by Lesley Hayes

The Drowned Phoenician Sailor The Drowned Phoenician Sailor is written in the first person and from the very first line you are pulled into the story. Lesley Hayes words create imagery while moving the story forward. Beginning with the character being awoken by a rather persistent companion (and having been there myself I could relate to this) she goes about her daily routine, using inner thoughts and some beautifully descriptive writing to start the story off. The synopsis of The Drowned Phoenician […]

  The One Who Had The One Who Had is the first of a series of novels about the character Amy Musil. Engaging with the reader from the very first paragraph, it’s character driven storytelling reels you in. The book begins with Amy coming around after a traumatic experience. She uses her inner thoughts, senses and discovery to remember some of the details, and I found myself turning the pages along with her. Careful revelation unfolds the story, and it has […]

Paradise Exhumed commences in medias res. Written in the third person, the reader can’t help but be pulled into the story from the very first line. The character finds herself in a situation none of us to wish to be in. It’s chilling, to say the least, but if you like your thrillers packed with action and emotion, and if the first section is anything to go by, then this has the promise of being a great read. Chapter one changes […]

Black Eyed Boy by Laura Hun..

Black Eyed Boy by Laura Huntley
Posted 20 June, 2015 by Free Book Promotions / 0 Comments

Black eyed boy has a wonderful ‘voice’ and will certainly appeal to young adults. Told in the first person, there is a good balance between the narrative and dialogue. I’ve only read the first few pages, but it is made very clear that there is a lot of pressure on young Emily’s shoulders. Relationships seem fraught, and to quote the synopsis, she feels ‘like a ghost in her own home.’ The few pages I read of Black eyed boy were well […]

Demien by Kenneth Morvant

Demien by Kenneth Morvant

My initial thoughts Demien is written in the third person, and begins slap bang in the medias res in the middle of a mid-air battle. Despite the fast-paced action, the writing style makes it easy to follow. There were no obvious errors in the section I read.
