Ashes reborn
Author: Arthur, Keri
Publisher: : Hachette Australia, 2017

ASHES REBORN is a brilliant urban fantasy story with unique characters and a plot filled with action suspense and intrigue. The mythology of phoenixes is complex and refreshing in a genre filled with vampires witches and werewolves. The reincarnation and resurrection abilities of phoenixes is fascinating and I would have welcomed a few more pages just explaining those abilities. While the story got bogged down and confusing at times with too many story lines the main story thread was fun and action packed.httpallthingsuf.com201709review-ashes-reborn-souls-fire-4-keri-arthur.html

Before evil
Author: Kava, Alex
Publisher: : Hachette Australia, 2017

Kava keeps her prose simple but she does a nice job of setting up the chemistry between O'Dell and Morelli while balancing the various family issues Morelli faces in the investigation. She also makes good use of the smalltown milieu tightening the tension by establishing that the killer is part of the fabric of the community. The result is a well-crafted page-turner involving the reader in the specter of murder in an intimate and disturbing fashion with a plausible setup for a sequelhttpswww.publishersweekly.com978-1-55166-573-3

Ararat / Christopher Golden.
Author: Golden, Christopher, author.

Ararat was a solidly fun read despite not meeting its full potential. Its certainly no Dan Simmons The Terror but these kinds of books are also satisfying in their own way and not least because they are often guaranteed entertainment. If youre simply in the mood to pass the time with a creepy thriller-horror novel complete with gore violence and a staggering body count this book will get the job done well.httpwww.speculativeherald.com20170515review-ararat-by-christopher-golden

American gods / Neil Gaiman.

The book is an enjoyable read and definitely a fine piece of literature. It makes the reader take pause and examine what it is that we hold dear nowadays as opposed to what people held dear a century or four ago. Its a much deeper read than youd expect right off the bat leading the reader to question theology and the course of the world and I do see how it could throw people off their first time around.httpnerdist.combook-review-american-gods-by-neil-gaiman

Cold feet: the lost years
Author: Harrington, Carmel

Cold Feet is one of my favourite TV shows. It has been for a long time. I was so pleased when they announced they were bringing it back for a sixth and seventh season. Then once I realised that there was also a book there was much excitement but also a little trepidation. Could the book live up to the greatness of the TV show Would the characters feel the same In a nutshell in my opinion. Yes.httpswww.novelkicks.co.ukbook-review-cold-feet-the-lost-years-by-carmel-harringtonGood job Carmel. Its not easy to take on such much-loved characters and continue it on whilst staying true to their personalities but you pulled it off. Any chance of another one

The color of fear / Marcia Muller.
Author: Muller, Marcia, author.
Publisher: New York Grand Central Publishing, 2017.

While the characters have obviously developed over the course of Mullers long-running series there isnt a ton of backstory laid out in this book. Newcomers may struggle to understand the characters at first before settling in once the plot takes off. While the pacing is quick its also a tad choppy at times early on though it does settle down as Muller finds her groove around the midway point.Marcia Mullers thirty-second Sharon McCone novel features a fast-paced plot that twists turns and winds its way to an explosive ending. Fans of Mullers series will appreciate another adventure with McCone who takes on one of her most personal cases yet.httpstherealbookspy.com20170725a-book-spy-review-the-color-of-fear-by-marcia-muller

Buried lies / Kristina Ohlsson ; translated by Neil Smith.

Buried Lies isnt exactly my preferred style of Swedish crime fiction its a bit too high-contrast high-octane high-stakes straying at times into airport-thriller territory. Theres a degree of unnecessary monologuing and one finds oneself wondering at times just why certain people are bothering to self-incriminate by answering Martins seemingly-innumerable questions. But its also undeniably well-constructed and well-paced and sets up the series very well for the next instalment.httpssimonpetrie.wordpress.com20170708book-review-buried-lies-by-kristina-ohlsson

Because of You is confronting and sad but has so much heart and hope that as you wipe away the tears you smile. I hope this book reaches a deservedly wide audience. It would make a wonderful YA book club choice. Highly recommended for 13.httpswww.readings.com.aureviewbecause-of-you-by-pip-harry

Beautiful messy love / Tess Woods.
Author: Woods, Tess, author.

Authors put so much of themselves into a book. They write late at night and early in the morning their families learning to adapt to the demands of the publishing process. They deal with crippling self doubt barely hanging in there at times. Its hard to comprehend this when all you see is the glossy finished product while youre lazing by the pool on vacation or sitting out a raging storm. Im glad you stuck with the writing gig Tess! Im looking forward to your next novel.httpsmariemclean.com20170809beautiful-messy-love-book-review
