King Of Shadows – Book Review

“He’s a warlock, a madman. But he’s also the only thing keeping me alive.” After giving the first book in this series, King Of Flames, a shining 5 star review a few months back, I think it’s safe to say that I was pretty goddamn excited to be reaching for book two! I was in…

The Gräzland Tales – Book Review

“Long live the Prince.” Here we go again! Today’s book review (and my longest book review of all time) is all about The Gräzland Tales by Trevor Van Winkle. This review will be slightly different to the reviews I’ve written previously, mainly because The Gräzland Tales is FOUR books long! I’ll be reviewing each section…

No Fish For Charles – Book Review

The Mullah, a teacher in an Afghan village, leads a group of students who have been left behind from the civil war. The…

Death’s Kiss – Book Review

“Life is valuable. Death is a necessity.” I’m now on book review number seven for my book club, Books Of All Shades and, as each book is completed, my level of inspiration is through the roof. Each book has been so different, each story so unique in its own way. It’s so great to see…

How Important Is A Book Review?

A good book review can be the difference between success and failure for an author. I’m guessing we’ve all realised it at some point or another, but you don’t get anywhere without trying. I mean, think about it. It’s rare to be handed stuff on a plate these days. You have to work your ass…
