I finished 4 books in the last week
Click on the orange links for reviews
Black Swan Rising by Lee Carroll. A young woman is given an antique box by a man. When she opens it, she unleashes some nasty creatures that threaten to take over the world. Garet (the woman) has to stop it all. 3 stars
The End of Mr Y by Scarlett Thomas. A young female university researcher finds a rare book, a book that is cursed. Or so people say. She becomes intrigued by the book and ends up in an alternate world, or is it her fantasy? 4 stars
Lies by Michael Grant. The third in the Gone series. The struggle in the FARZ is continuing with children nearly ready to kill eachother. Some disturbing events make their lives even more uncertain than they already were. 4 stars
Op Zee [At Sea, Dutch] by Toine Heijmans. A father takes his seven-year old daughter on a sailing trip to travel from Northern Denmark to the Netherlands in two days. But then the daughter disappears. Her father can’t find her but he doesn’t want to call in the coastguard because he may be accused of being an irresponsible father. Very good! 5 stars [Do read my review, click on the link in the title, and use google translate to see what I thought]
A Cosy Knave by Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen. Rose, an older single woman is murdered while in the company of several other villagers. Nobody saw what happened. Archibald Penrose, the local constable investigates the case. Very English, lots of fun names, lots of tea. Potential 4 stars.
Dancing in the Shadows of Love by Judy Croome. “Three emotionally adrift women fight to heal their fractured worlds. Not everyone can be a hero. Or can they?” I’ve only just started so I don’t have an opinion yet. Well-written, it seems.
