I Am Phantom (Book 1) by Sean Fletcher

Standard

My Thoughts: I was up til 4am reading this book!

10/10 Stars for the opening paragraph! I loved the main character, Drake Sinclair’s, humour and attitude, the first two sentences had me completely hooked. I have to quote them…. ‘My day really began the moment the men shot at me. To set the record straight, it wasn’t my usual idea of fun.’ (From Chapter One: In Which I Screw Up)

I Am Phantom is a fast-paced, well-written, action-packed sci-fi and fantasy, with a good dose of humour. Written in the first person, the reader joins Drake at the beginning of this story in his relatively calm and peaceful family life at home just before he finishes school, and where his only worries are asking girls to prom, the school bullies, oh, and the freaky super powers he obtained during puberty. Drake Sinclair knows he isn’t normal, jumping ridiculously high, super speed, strength and healing abilities are not normal, however he has done a good job at dealing with and hiding his abnormalities so far…. That is before a mysterious figure shows up and turns the school prom into a disaster.

Drake Sinclair then receives a strange admission letter from a college out of state, one with a letter that promises to give him answers about his powers. Desperate for answers Drake accepts, but little does he know, the answers are more complicated and more disturbing than he had ever imagined. Drake is forced to choose how he will use his powers, and whether or not he will use them for good or bad. Continue reading

She Never Got To Say Goodbye by Ica Iova

Standard

 

My Thoughts:

She Never Got To Say Goodbye is a great paranormal fantasy and thriller with a lovely and satisfying ending. I enjoyed reading this book and it has been a delightful change from what I’ve been currently reading. The story is fast-paced and takes elements from a number of different genres, romance, mystery, action, paranormal and thriller. I think even the pickiest readers will have trouble finding nothing to appreciate here. Overall the story is well written, I noticed a couple of errors but nothing that detracts away from the story. Ica Iova has a beautiful and addictive writing style that will keep you turning the pages.

She Never Got To Say Goodbye is centred around two main characters, Olivia and Brandon. The story describes how they meet, fall in love, and how their relationship ultimately falls apart. The story then moves on to Olivia’s life as a ghost, Brandon’s life as a single parent, and the last part of the story introduces the life of the killer… Continue reading

Tuesday’s Child (Psychic Visions, Book 1) by Dale Mayer

Standard

 My Thoughts:

An intriguing read, yes there are lots of psychic books out there but I’ve not read one quite like this. The difference is, this psychic (Sam), experiences the final moments of people’s lives as they are brutally murdered, both through their eyes and physically. She feels like she dies every time because she literally experiences their death, waking up with marks and cuts all over her body after her visions. I’ve not read or come across this sort of spin on a psychic’s powers before, it was a little gruesome, and spine-crawling.

I was totally in the mood for Tuesday’s Child, and I think it is one of those books that you need to be in the mood for. I’ve been on a bit of a crime/mystery/thriller theme at the moment with my books, I have just finished ‘The Cuckoo’s Calling’ (also v.good). However, mixing crime with paranormal fantasy like Mayer does, now you’re talking. Continue reading

Ring of Conscience by James Stoddah

Standard

My thoughts: 

Oh wow. James Stoddah has really leapt forward with the times, by writing one of the first, (I believe), interactive novels. The best thing about this novel is not only the gripping, fast-paced, addictive storyline, but the mystery is also a reality. James Stoddah has created two websites, one from the story itself and the second, another, real life, treasure hunt for readers to participate in and enjoy. (I will put links to the websites below).

The characters are extremely likeable, even the villains, which surprisingly, I felt sorry for some of the antagonists. There is a clash of opinions and emotions between all the characters with a couple of unstable bad guys thrown in the mix, making this story very intriguing indeed. Continue reading
