Review: As soon as I started reading this book, I was hooked. I loved the way the history was presented through different characters and generations in 5 stories. They were separate but intertwining as well, which I particularly enjoyed. My personal favourite was The Book of Morwen :)
'SPECTACULAR!' No. 1 bestselling author Martina Cole
M. R. Carey returns to the world of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS, the phenomenal million-copy bestseller which is now a BAFTA-nominated film.
Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy.
The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world.
To where the monsters lived.

'I loved it just as much as The Girl With All the Gifts, if not more' Martina Cole
'A tense story with superbly rendered characters' SciFiNow
'A terrifying, emotional page-turner that explores what it means to be human' Kirkus
Review: Who didn't love The Girl With All The Gifts? A zombie-themed book with a real difference, and a movie that worked just as well. This is another book in the series, set in the same world, but featuring different characters. The 'boy' and everyone around him suck you into their story and don't let you go until the shocking end. I loved it!
There's always a reason for murder. But when a young actress is killed in a swift and violent attack at a cinema screening, that reason is hard to fathom - even for Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her team.
It's only when bestselling crime writer Blaine DeLano arrives at the precinct that the shocking truth is revealed. Someone is recreating the murder scenes from her latest series, book by book. With six more novels left in the series, Eve now knows how the killer will strike next. But why has DeLano been targeted? Could her abusive husband be involved?
As fiction is transformed into bloody reality, Eve will need all her skill and experience to solve this unique case. Luckily for her, husband Roarke happens to be a fan of DeLano's work. And he's more than happy to work side by side with his brilliant wife - no matter how dark things become...
Review: It's every author's nightmare, their books coming to life...especially for crime writer Blain who writes very gruesome murders. Even though Eve knows where the next victim will come from, it doesn't make finder the killer any easier. This is another fantastic addition to the 'in death' series and I hope they keep coming for a very long time!
'You think he killed his wife?
When Dorothy Guildford is found stabbed to death in her home, all signs point to her husband, Peter. The forensic psychologist is convinced there's more to the case that meets the eye but Police Scotland are certain they have their man.
While DC Kirsty Wilson searches for evidence that will put Peter away for good, she is shocked to discover a link with a vast human-trafficking operation that Detective Superintendent William Lorimer has been investigating for months. But before they can interrogate him, Peter is brutally attacked.
With one person dead and another barely hanging on, the clock is ticking for DC Wilson and DSI Lorimer. And the stakes grow higher still when one of their own is kidnapped . . .
Review: This is the first book I've read in the William Lorimer series and I was instantly gripped. The author has created an in-depth world that got it's claws into me right away. Kirsty is a very likable character, and as she unravels this mystery that has increasing layers with every passing second, I felt for her more and more. William is well-written as well, reading this immediately had me wanting to find more from the series, so now I'll be starting at book one.
Jayne Ann Krentz, the New York Times bestselling author of Secret Sisters, delivers a thrilling novel of the deceptions we hide behind, the passions we surrender to, and the lengths we'll go to for the truth . . .
When Charlotte Sawyer is unable to contact her step-sister, Jocelyn, to tell her that one her closest friends was found dead, she discovers that Jocelyn has vanished.
Beautiful, brilliant - and reckless - Jocelyn has gone off the grid before, but never like this. In a desperate effort to find her, Charlotte joins forces with Max Cutler, a struggling PI who recently moved to Seattle after his previous career as a criminal profiler went down in flames - literally. Burned out, divorced and almost broke, Max needs the job.
After surviving a near-fatal attack, Charlotte and Max turn to Jocelyn's closest friends, women in a Seattle-based online investment club, for answers. But what they find is chilling . . .
When her uneasy alliance with Max turns into a full-blown affair, Charlotte has no choice but to trust him with her life. For the shadows of Jocelyn's past are threatening to consume her - and anyone else who gets in their way . . .
Review: This is an action-packed romantic suspense novel with enough twists and turns to leave your head spinning. The characters all have their own character quirks that make them exciting to read, and the plot moves along at a gripping pace. As I got towards the end of the book I couldn't put it down, I was reading late into the night to get to that epic conclusion. The book hangover was totally worth it, highly recommended!
