Book Review: Ex-Patriots by Peter Clines

I quite enjoyed Peter Clines’ first installment in his superheroes vs zombies series, and the sequels have been sitting on my Amazon wishlist ever since. I finally got around to reading part 2 and it was an utter belter. 332 more words

Book Review: The Girl at Rosewood Hall by Annis Bell

Finally…a Kindle free book which I actually enjoyed, after months of duds.
This book was a decent enough historical mystery thriller which benefits from some good characterisation and a fast pace which makes it a quick, enjoyable read. 434 more words

Book Review: The Con Man by Ed McBain

I’m really getting into McBain’s 87th Precinct series now, and this, the fourth installment, may be my favourite so far. It follows the standard formula, dealing with the same bunch of detectives and moving on the strands and subplots from the previous stories. 290 more words

Book Review: Thuvia, Maid of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Having bought an omnibus of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom stories I decided to continue with this one, and was pleasantly surprised by how much it strays off the formula of the adventures thus far. 439 more words
