Book Review - Tapestry - Fiona McIntosh

TapestryTapestry by Fiona McIntosh

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

DUE MAY 2014

Another fantastic title from Fiona McIntosh.

This time she leads us to 1970's London which in turn leads us to 1714 Britain and the Jacobite rebellion against King George.

The authors characters are well written and engaging. You start on this massive journey with Jane Granger, who is determined to save her fiancé after he gets attacked. This journey involves taking charge of the past and helping a Lord of The Realm to escape the Headsman's axe. The fates of Will Maxwell and William Maxwell, Earl of Nithsdale are entwined and Jane will have to face a most difficult choice of what she wants if she is to find happiness.

I really enjoyed this book, in fact it only took me a couple of days to read it. I liked reading about Winifred, Jane, Will, Robin and Julius. All the characters well well rounded and interesting. What is even better is that this book is founded on an event that happened. The Count and Countess of Nithsdale were real life people who actually did what few people have done and Fiona does justice to the tale.

A very good book and highly recommended when it comes out :D

Book Review - Steven Lindsay - The Angels' Pride

The Angels' PrideThe Angels' Pride by Steven Lindsay
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really loved the concept of this book. Introducing modern and ancient history and entwining them together really works well for this author. Sariel is such an innocent that is forced to grow up when she learns that her family have betrayed her. She frees two Goddesses, who have been held in captivity by the Angels when they overthrew the Gods and started their own religion - Christianity.

This starts a chain of events that leads to last circle of Hell and the dominion of Lucifer.

The main characters are very well written making you really feel for them. Story lines are fast, engaging and really hook you in. You don't want to stop reading till you reach the end of the book and it is a big book. The author takes you through an alternate history of might have beens and what could be's.

The ending is a cliffhanger that makes you really want to start reading the second book which is due out in April 2014. If you like tales about magic, gods, war and real history, then pick up Steven Lindsay's book 'The Angels' Pride' you won't regret it!

We will be getting copies in stock soon so pre-order now!
