✫•My Review

This series is getting better and better with each book! Even though this is part of The Ceasefire Series, you could read it without reading the other books first.

This book is packed with action from the very beginning, and it continues to be full of action until the end.

The plot is steadily paced, thought-out and well-written. The author has created a very realistic world and set of characters. The details given her enough to allow a mental image to form in my mind as I was reading and make you feel a part of the story as it unfolds.

It was very easy to feel a part of the characters’ lives and adventures. Which for the most part is fantastic, until reading the more painful parts of the story! But then if I did not feel the characters pain as well as a happiness then I guess Claire would not have done her job properly.

A Hellion Heart is most definitely an action-packed emotional rollercoaster from beginning to end. And it’s that fantastic mix of action, drama and emotion from Claire’s writing that captured my attention, drew me in and kept me turning the pages needing to know just what was coming next.

I don’t know where Claire gets her ideas and inspiration from, I only hope she continues to get them. Her work is a genuine twisted joy to read.

A Hellion Heart may be able to be read as a stand-alone, but my honest opinion would be to read the others first; or at least straight after! This is another fantastic addition to an already epic series!

Absolutely loved every page!

✫•Excerpt

Catching me, he lifts me effortlessly off my feet. One hand restraining my arms to my waist, the other cupping my face in a cruel grip. “You just can’t control your fiery temper, can you?”

Hand sliding from my jaw to my hair, he twists it titling my head to his. A hard-sensuous mouth clamps down on mine cutting off my snarl of outrage.

I can’t deny the powerful recognition the kiss brings. Resentment ignites at how he wields it in an alpha way to force submission. I’m shocked to the core to feel my strength draining away. In its place, a strange relaxed sensation seeping through my body. It leaves me shaking and confused.

As his tongue probes deeper, a murmur of anxiety leaves me.

The sound of voices filters in. Instant awareness of where we are and who’s watching is like being doused in ice water.

“Perhaps I’ve just found a way to curb your hostility,” Cade rasps against my mouth. When he moves to kiss me a second time, I sink my teeth into his bottom lip.

A growl rumbles through his broad chest, but it’s not with anger. His amber eyes pull me deeper into a place I shouldn’t go.

“Release me.” I don’t like how my voice sounds so weak and shaken.

The arm around me slackens enough for me to push a hand against his chest.

Dark Ride by Iain Rob Wright

✫.•° About The Book °•.✫

‘Bright Lights’ AJ Starr is a pro wrestler on the rise, and his life is about to change forever. Knowing this, he plans one last party with all of his best friends. The venue? Saxon Hills theme park, abandoned ten years ago after its flagship ride burned down and killed nine innocent people. Some people say the place is haunted, but AJ knows from his time inside the squared circle that fantasy and reality are totally separate things.

Or so he thought.

AJ has no idea how nightmarish things are about to get, and eventually he’ll be left wondering whether he brought his friends to Saxon Hills theme park to have fun. Or to die.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I came across this author on Facebook, you know the sponsored posts; it was one of them. I got Dark Ride free by signing up for Iain’s mailing list. As much as I have a huge TBR list I pushed this to the top because of its genre, horror! I love a good horror book and it has been a while since I read a good one. Dark Ride however is a good creepy horror book.

It is set in an eerie, deserted, abandoned amusement park. Where a group of friends choose to spend an evening together inside one of its old rides. Which ride? Only the ride that caused the amusement park all its problems, the ride where people had died, as any sane person would do! Honestly, what could possibly go wrong? (I am not going to tell you that’s for sure)!

I feel that this author has done a pretty good job of creating characters that are realistic and will pull you into their world very easily, the big question is: Do you want to be part of their world? Given the situations that these characters are faced with I would say they handled them well; I don’t know what I’d do in their positions that’s for sure. They interact well together and occasionally they rub each other the wrong way causing friction too.

The plot is structured, it flows smoothly and is fairly quick paced. The events are set up by the author well and lead onto the next part almost effortlessly. The detail given allows a clear; sometimes maybe a little too clear; mental image to form as you are reading. The way Dark Ride is written will make you feel like you’re on an amusement ride too; the start draws you into your seat and clamps the lap bar down, then it takes off into the twists and turns, never slowing or stopping to let you off.

I devoured this book and have now snuck another of Iain Rob Wrights books to the top of my TBR list, a small confession; I’m hooked on that one too.

I’m glad I spotted this authors sponsored post on Facebook now, else I might never have discovered these creepy worlds that he has created!

The Crying Boy by Jane E. James

✫.•° Book Info °•.✫

There is something in the shadows…

Clayton and Avril Shaw have lost their little boy and are still grieving when they move into Swallow’s Nest on the Yorkshire moors.

In their new house, Avril discovers a painting and is intrigued by the history surrounding it. When she learns that the boy in the painting was deaf, like her dead son, she starts to try and communicate with his ghost.

Meanwhile, Clayton finds himself entangled in an equally undesirable friendship with a retired fire chief who knows more about the painting than he is prepared to let on.

Is The Crying Boy painting cursed and can numerous house fires be linked to it?

Struggling with their unstable marriage, the couple find themselves in further danger as an increasingly disturbing bond develops between Avril and The Crying Boy.

In a twist of events Avril’s irrational behaviour is brought to a dramatic halt when she discovers she is pregnant. With her affections once again restored for Clayton, she decides to dispose of the sinister portrait. But the cast-off painting wants revenge and its anger towards Avril’s unborn child might just prove immeasurable.

Can Avril and Clayton live happily ever after or does The Crying Boy have other plans?

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I have had the pleasure of meeting this author at a signing event in 2017. I have had a few of her books on my Kindle ever since. And now I have eventually gotten around to reading The Crying Boy, I only wonder why I didn’t read it sooner!

The Crying Boy is a creepy, chilling read. It is packed full of intrigue and suspense with threads of horror entwined.

Jane E. James has put a lot of time and hard work into this book and that is clear to see in the detail included. It is these details that snared my attention and sucked me further into this book, I was hooked within the first few pages and devoured every single page as and when I could.

The characters are well written, and most are likeable. The Shaws have been through a lot before moving to Swallows Nest, and their struggles are far from over. But these two refused to quit and they kept fighting for themselves and for each other! I really enjoyed how these characters interact and they are easy to relate to.

The Crying Boy was a creepy, addictive and thoroughly enjoyable read from its very beginning.

I am so glad I finally made time to pick it up and read it.

✫.•° About The Author °•.✫

Crux by Laura Rossi

✫.•° About The Book °•.✫

El Diablo è morto. The Devil is dead.

In the underworld when a leader falls, another leader is ready to rise. I’m that leader. This is my time to rule.

But stepping into my brother’s shoes, comes with a price, an inheritance of both gold and blood.

Are you ready for a war? No rules, no boundaries. Every man for himself.

It’s showdown.

“You take from me, I take from you. I’m heartless and abide to one rule and one rule only: protect La Famiglia.

Protect my own blood. The rest of you don’t count. My name is Ramirez, Ramirez De la Crux but they call me The Soulless Man.

Note to reader: Crux is a mafia, dark romance novel. Although it can be read as a standalone, it is highly recommended that you read Skins, Scars, and Filomena first, to fully understand characters, love stories, secrets and course of events.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

If you enjoyed reading Skins and Scars, then Crux will blow you away. You could read Crux as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading Skins and Scars first, it will make Crux much better.

Crux is the story of Ramirez De La Crux, it follows Ramirez as he steps into Alejandro’s shoes. Ramirez never wanted to be a leader, especially not of the ‘De La Crux’ empire. But now Alejandro is gone, Ramirez must step up and take the reins.

This book is an incredible rollercoaster ride of dark, twisted, and emotional events. The emotion and heartbreak that Ramirez experiences is palpable. Crux shows us how a dark, secretive soulless man can be the complete opposite; how he can be a scared boy, not knowing who he can trust.

Crux gives us the back story behind Ramirez and how he became ‘The Soulless Man’. It shows us the many sides to Ramirez. Crux is raw, gritty, dark, twisted and heart breaking. The twists, turns, secrets and emotion make Crux a powerfully compelling, addictive, and thrilling story.

Crux showcases author Laura Rossi’s talent for writing such dark and twisted stories. Laura has the balance of emotion and details exactly right. She ensnares her readers and pulls them so far into their world, that you will forget where reality is.

I’m gutted that I’ve come to the end of Crux, and I can only hope that there will be more from Ramirez De La Crux in the future.

Asylum 1 by Sian B Claven

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

Hans is a brilliant doctor, sent to an Asylum in the middle of nowhere to continue his post-world war experiments on the insane.

Karen is a bubbly nurse whose sole intention in the world is to do good and help those that cannot help themselves.

Good intentions cross into power hungry mania in this horrific tale of how all their failed experiments come back to haunt them, and how the Asylum holds its own secrets.

“Asylum makes your hair stand on end. This is creepy and dark, yet incredibly fascinating. To delve into the mind of the ‘scientist’ at this asylum is to find sheer madness roiling in those depths, as well as utter self-delusion. The very stones of this madhouse is drenched with horror … a clever and twisted MUST read!” Elaina J. Davidson.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

This is the first book by this author that I’ve read. The question I have now is why? I’ve known that Sian is an author for a while but for some unknown reason I’ve never read one of her books until now. I’ll definitely be going back and reading more!

Asylum I is a freaky, psychological, creepy and dark read! It’s written in a diary form, so it’s clear to see the timeline of events that happened. And what a string of events they are! I’m not going to discuss them for fear of spoiling the surprise for those of you that are yet to read this.

Sian’s writing style grabbed my attention from the beginning and pulled me further and further into the world that she created. Sian’s writing is clear and informative, giving you the details needed to picture each and every scene in your mind, so clearly that you can believe it’s real and you’re there!

The characters are cleverly thought out. Hans is… um… what’s the word I want… oh yeah… crazy, a madman, I suppose it’s a mad scientist/doctor. Sian has created Hans as the doctor who wants to cure the insane. Personally, I think he’s as crazy as his patients! His methods are… different! Hans plays his roll extremely well.

Overall, I loved this book, the plot, the characters, everything! The creepy, disturbing darkness of it appealed and called to the darkness within me, so much so I’ve pre-ordered Asylum II!

✫.•° About The Author °•.✫

Hailing from Johannesburg South Africa, Sian B. Claven has enjoyed stories for all her life, whether she was reading them or making them. She has written for as long as she can remember, but Ensnared is the first book she decided to publish. Moving towards writing more for the horror / paranormal thriller genre, Sian has subsequently published the first two books in The Butcher Books series, Tatum and Kallista. When Sian isn’t thinking of ways to terrify people, she enjoys writing science fiction stories, poetry and rather long and gushy birthday wishes. When she isn’t working on her writing you can find her knitting, scrapbooking, reading, or playing Xbox. Sian previously reviewed for The Blithering Bibliomaniacs and still reviews in her private capacity. She clearly doesn’t know what the words rest and relaxation mean, at least not in the traditional sense.

Bonds by Marie Anne Cope

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

Do you know who hides in your past?

Half the village of Breccan lies dead – slaughtered. All that stands between Antony Cardover and his freedom is his wife, Isabella; or so he believes.
In his wrath at his wife’s adultery, Antony trades his soul for the chance of vengeance. His price? An eternity as a monster – a man bearing a vampire curse. To stop him, the curse must be broken. To break the curse, Isabella and all her descendants must be destroyed. The catch? Only Antony can break the curse.

With Breccan in mourning and Antony on the rampage, only one person can help. Anna Martindale, a witch shunned by the villagers, entombs Antony within a stone sarcophagus, bound by spells and buried in hallowed ground for the rest of time.
Breccan breathes again. Time heals.
That was four hundred years ago.

Seventeenth century spells, however, are no match for twenty first century living. As Ramply Homes moves in, the secret of St. Martin’s churchyard prepares to move out.

As the church is desecrated, the spells that hold Antony break. Soon, Becca Martin, a descendant of Isabella, is plagued by dreams of a time and a man she cannot possibly have known. As her nightmares become real, Becca has no choice but to contact the one person who will be able to help; someone she has not spoken to in a decade – her mother.

Here, Becca discovers the truth about her ancestry and is forced to face up to whom and what she is. Only a wooden box and her gift hold the key to her survival.

Four hundred years ago Antony failed.
He will not fail again.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I purchased a signed copy of Bonds from Marie-Anne Cope at an author event in October 2018. It was in the run-up to this event I first found out about Marie-Anne Cope and her work.

After reading the blurb for Bonds I decided that I needed to read this series. In November me and my fella headed to Wales for a holiday so I grabbed my signed copy of Bonds and took it with me. I read Bonds in a little over a day! Once I started reading I quickly became hooked.

Bonds is the story of Antony Cardover and Becca Martin.

Becca is living life in denial. Why? Because she is a witch, but Becca has spent many years refusing to accept this. Becca’s grandmother tried explaining her ancestry to her but Becca didn’t want to accept it. So she has spent many years denying her ancestry and living a normal life.

Anthony is a very old part of Becca’s family history! Anthony has but one goal to break the curse that was placed on him 400 years ago. And he will stop at nothing to succeed this time!

Bonds is written incredibly well. It shifts effortlessly between Becca’s life now and Anthony’s life 400 years ago. The way the story is told allowed me to build a very clear image in my own mind of the events that will happen in. The way in which the past and the present are explained created a clear understanding of why the characters are the way they are. Anthony’s past explains his behavior both then and now. Becca’s past also gives an insight into why she chose to deny her which ancestry, but now with Anthony on the loose she might have to come to terms with it and finally accepts who and what she really is.

✫.•° About The Author °•.✫

Marie Anne Cope was born in Marlow, in the UK. She has worked as a salesperson and a banker, before eventually training as an accountant, working for over a decade in practice and industry before setting up her own business. Marie is also a yoga teacher.

She is presently writing three series.

The BONDS series is set in both the seventeenth century and the modern day and follows the unusual relationship between Becca Martin and Antony Cardover. Becca is forced to face up to her birthright as a witch in order to survive and help Antony in his quest to break his vampire curse.

THE MISFITS follows the adventures of four supernatural friends – Achoo, Mina, Boo and Zoe – who are all failing at being what their parents and teachers expect them to be. During their adventures, they learn that being different, being unique, is not just okay, it’s perfect, as they help others in need along the way.

TALES FROM A SCARYGIRL are collections of short horror stories which not only seek to explore what lies beyond the veil that separates this world from the next, but also what darkness lies deep within us, waiting for an opportunity to escape!

✫.•° Synopsis °•.✫

Brooding and dominant Eric has returned, bringing old feelings to the surface, leaving her rawer than ever.

While Jasmine and her team investigate, her dreams are invaded by an unknown presence. With the Red Moon set to rise murder and ghosts are the least of her worries.

With insidious forces gaining strength, it’s a race to unearth the truth before it’s too late.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

At last book 6 in the Hunter chronicles!!

Now I have another problem… I’ve finished reading it and there’s no book 7 yet!

Blood Moon Rising… Eric… Jasmine…

Jasmine and the team; except Twitch; are all on a case in Budapest. The team are investigating the death of Mark’s friend, to do this they’re in a house/museum full of artefacts; some are magical some aren’t. And there’s ghosts, the house/museum is full of them!

Jasmine’s powers as a sensitive have grown and developed and she is only too aware of these ghosts and entities. When Eric makes a sudden appearance, she realises she’s got more to deal with the originally thought as Eric stirs thoughts and feelings that she’s been trying to bury and get over since Prague.

Eric has finally decided to try and make amends for how he behaved in Prague, he knows it won’t be easy, but he knows he has to try. So, he heads to Budapest to find Jasmine. What he finds is not what he once knew, Jasmine has changed, she stronger, more confident and not going to be easy to win over. Eric likes what he sees though!

Blood Moon Rising is a highly addictive read, it will capture your attention and heart from the very beginning and hold it until the very end. I love the addition of the ghosts and the control of the blood moon over the supernatural in this book, they fit the characters and story incredibly well.

C. Marta’s writing style is effortless once more, her words have a natural flow. The emotion and love that C. Marta gives her words comes through as some seriously strong feelings and emotions in both her characters and the overall story.

This book was all I was hoping for and more, my only problem is that I read it so quickly and now have nothing left…

I need the next book…

Claire… Is it done yet?

The Twelve by D E McCluskey

✫.•° Blurb °•.✫

Sometimes the past can come back to haunt you…

John Rydell was 4000 miles away when he got the phone call from his wife, ‘John there’s someone in the house.’

By the time he was home, tragedy had struck. A tragedy that threatened to engulf him, bringing back long forgotten and repressed memories of his days at university.

Now some of his old friends are dying, one by one. They are found gutted, disembowelled, ruined. There were twelve of them back in university, and there were twelve of them for a reason.

✫.•° My Review °•.✫

I love reading horror books and it’s been a long time since I read something that actually gave me the creeps, this book did!

This is the first of this author’s work that I’ve read, and I’ll certainly be reading more of his work in the future.

The Twelve follows John Rydell through part of his life. John loses his wife whilst he was on a business trip, his wife’s death is the starting point for a series of gruesome deaths. John slowly begins to connect the dots himself and realises that these deaths are all linked to him and some old university friends.

The Twelve uses flashbacks to give the details needed for you understand what the twelve was. These flashbacks work well and give depth to the overall story, they also give important details that help with understanding the overall plot.

D E McCluskey has done a great job setting this story up and delivering it to his readers. The images that D E McCluskey’s words create are creepy and eerie, whilst being detailed and engrossing. At the beginning there is very little given away but it’s enough to make you curious. I was intrigued to know who or what was going to happen, I wanted to know what else was in store for John and for me as a reader.

D E McCluskey’s writing style is informative, graphic, and compelling, it pulls you in and makes you want to stay, makes you feel as though you need to keep reading.

Most of the time that I spent reading this was in my room on the third floor of my house in the dark or near dark stop. I found myself on more than one occasion pausing and looking over my shoulder! Or listening to see if I had heard a noise from elsewhere in the house!

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the 12 and I look forward to discovering more of this author’s works.

I think that anyone who loves horror would find this book a great read, but I also think that fans of thrillers might find this book thoroughly enjoyable too.

✫.•° Author Bio °•.✫

I began writing in 2011, mainly for my own enjoyment. I began by making up funny, rhyming stories, with a horror-based theme running through them. I wrote them mostly for my daughter who was only four years of age at the time.

These rhymes where popular with my friends and family and someone mentioned that I should get them down in a book. That’s when the idea for a comic sprung into mind.

I scoured the internet and met a fantastic illustrator. I then commissioned him to illustrate this comic and Interesting Tymes was created. This is an anthology of short horror stories, all written in rhyme, but suitable for children to read too.

This was so popular with friends and family and further afield, that I decided to make another. Interesting Tymes X 2 continued where the first one left off, with Edward D’Ammage introducing another six horror tales.

From then I got the bug. I began to expand my series of rhyming tales, taking the original themes, and making them into longer stories. Using a different illustrator, I wrote, commissioned, and produced my first, short, horror comic. Wooden Heart.

I then began to write a zombie serial called The Few, we are currently on # 3 of what will be seven. #4 is currently in production.

I then embarked on a more ambitious project. My first graphic novel. Doppelganger is over 100 pages long and is a dark psychological tale of a man descending into madness.

Next up came DeathDay presents. This is a 4-part comedy tale about three demons in Hell who forget about Satan’s DeathDay. It has a 15 rating as the imagery in the back is rather graphic and gory, while the interactions between the demons is comedic and light.

Then I wrote and produced another full graphic novel. This one is called Olf. This is a children’s tale about Fr Christmas and his reindeer. I wrote this as I wanted to balance my brain between the darkness of Doppelganger my desire to wrote something that my daughter could read.

With a love of sci-fi and the old-style Flash Gordon type cliff-hangers, I wrote a series of tales about an adventurer called Mace Masoch, and his sidekick Miss Ninetails. The style of this comic was adult orientated, with buxom women and muscular men. #2 is currently in production.

After Mace, I went back to the list of my old rhyming tails and selected a longer, rhyming tale to produce in the same style as Interesting Tymes. This was to be a vehicle for my leading character Edward D’Ammage to run with his own titles. Edward D’Ammage Presents: The Wedding is in the same vein as Interesting Tymes although it has a different illustrator.

After this I did a collaboration with leading ‘extreme horror’ author Matt Shaw to serialise his best-selling novel, Sick B*stards, into a graphic novel. This has been a successful venture up to now, even though only #1 is available yet. #2 is currently in production.

I produced a short zombie inspired short horror comic, working with the illustrator I used for Wooden Heart, and produced Three Days in the City. This is a zombie-esque tale set in Liverpool. It’s a one-shot story and sells really well in conventions, mainly due to the location.

Bringing back my love of Christmas and my love of old comics like The Beano, I partnered up with a fantastic artist called Joe Matthews, and we produced one of my proudest pieces of work. We undertook the mammoth job of re-writing Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, completely in rhyme. Joe did the artwork in his fantastic Beano-esque style. This has been my best seller to date.

In all the time writing, I had also written several short horror stories. I took the decision to bring these together into another anthology, and teaming up again with the illustrator for Doppelganger, I produced Short Sharp Shocks. Six short horror/thriller tales all introduced by a skeletal game show host.

My next project is still in production. It’s a graphic novel about a female super-villain with a good side to her. Its called DreamCatcher. Originally, I was going to produce this as three parts, but decided that I would wait until all three parts are complete before bringing it out as a full graphic novel. Parts 1 & 2 are complete, while 3 is just about to be commissioned.

Writing graphic novels, I found long and laborious to do. I have no talent for drawing, but I do see the panels in my head and am very good at articulating them to the illustrators. But, I found myself increasingly at the mercy to how fast the artist work. I am a fast writer, and I wanted the artists to work as fast as I did. It was also proving costly, as good artists do not come cheap. I was working with a good illustrator friend on a graphic novel I had written called Thirteen. She had produced ten pages of top-notch work for me, but she was worried about the length of time it was taking her to complete the pages. She loved the story she was working on, so she convinced me to turn it into a full-length novel. She told me that the scope of the graphic novel would probably bankrupt me anyway. So, I converted the comic script and produced my first full novel. I changed the name of it to The Twelve and it is currently selling well on Amazon, and from me via my Facebook page.

Stirred on by the success of The Twelve, I teamed up with a local musical historian who I used to work with back in the days of playing in bands around Liverpool. We came up with a concept about a historical tale about the old Liverpool music scene. He did a load of research into the swing music scene in Liverpool after the war, and my second novel came to life. In The mood… For Murder was released, to excellent reviews. Bit things are in the pipeline for this book, least of all, a sequel is in the works.

Next up came my third novel, CRACK. This is a brutal story about one mans descent into addiction after a road traffic accident that wasn’t his fault. This is a specialised tale and is not always everyone’s cup of tea. Although it is selling well, the reviews, although good, are slow in coming.

Next up I am hoping to release Z: A Love Story by Christmas (or shortly after). A zombie tale inspired by one of my rhyming stories in Interesting Tymes X 2. Then I have written and am currently editing a sci-fi Jack the Ripper inspired tale entitled Timeripper. I have also written and am also editing a trilogy of books; Glimmer Trilogy. This is three books set in a fictional land, with magic and swords. I have written this for the YA genre. Lastly, I have re-written my Olf graphic novel into a children’s novel, I am currently getting illustrations completed for this, with a look to release it for Christmas 2019. This will be the first in a series of 5 novels, all set in the same land.

In my spare time, I work as a computer engineer, I am a full-time father to my daughter Grace (who will be bringing out her own children’s book in 2019, entitled The Hangry Hamster), I also do stand-up comedy around the north-west of England.
