These ‘about me’ sections, or even sections that inform you about blogs, have never been my forte. Much to my chagrin, I was never taught the unwritten rules of what you are supposed to say. The links at the side of the blog – Twitter and Goodreads, for example – are liable to tell you more than I could ever say in words.

Mostly, this will be a book blog. I read a lot, and I love to share my views on my most recent reads. I try to read a little bit of everything, but if you look closely you’ll notice I will occasionally become obsessed with one specific genre for a short period of time. Old books, new books, yet to be released books – I read them all. If you’re an author looking for advance readers or just wish for more reviews of a book you’ve already released, please feel free to contact me. There is a contact form at the side of my blog – if you scroll down below the Twitter and Goodreads sidebar you will find it – so drop me a message and I’ll be sure to get back to you in double time. After all, finding new authors is what makes the book world go around.

Thanks for taking your time to read this. With a little bit of luck, you will find my blog much more interesting than this mundane introductory section.

Review: Monster

Monster Monster by Elizabeth Burgess
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was introduced to Elizabeth Burgess through her young adult fantasy novel, Witch Dance, a story completely different to the Counterplay series. Having enjoyed Witch Dance, I was super interested to give the Counterplay series a try – after all, the Counterplay series seemed to be right up my street.

Whilst investigating the Counterplay series, I stumbled upon Monster on the author’s website. It’s a short story, one that can be completed in no time at all, yet it leaves you super interested in grabbing the future books in the series to see where things go.

Filled with dark deeds and questionable characters, it gives you an insight into the drama you can expect from this series. From the start, you’re curious as to where things are heading. The characters are all involved in something shady, you know something big is going to go down, and you’re rushing through the story to get your answers.

Then, when things happen, you’re hit with a bang. It grabs you, leaves you wanting more – only for the story to come to an end, leaving you wanting to read the main series to find out how everything plays out. For such a short story, this one really does leave you wanting more.

A wonderful little prequel story to leave you grabbing at the Counterplay series.
