The Muse – Book Review

The Muse

 

I received The Muse in exchange for an honest review

It’s inevitable that Jessie Burton’s new novel, The Muse, will be compared wth her smash-hit debut, The Miniaturist. And I seem to be in the minority in thinking that this novel is better than her first. It’s certainly cemented Jessie Burton as my my current favourite historical fiction writer. The Muse effortlessly brings to life other eras, cultures and life-like, three-dimensional characters, all wrapped in up luscious descriptions and a gripping plot which had me completely hooked. Not to mention, another stunner of a cover too.

Dog Country

 

Dog Country by Malcolm F. Cross
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Conflict arises as the soldier is underprepared for the transition, and the civilians fail to understand the POV of the soldier. This sci-fi tale grasps this scenario and runs with it.

The Pillars of Natura – Book Review

The Pillars of Natura

 

I was contacted by the author of this book and sent a review copy in exchange for a honest review.

I must say I was a little apprehensive about this book. I had never heard anything about this author or the book. As I started reading I thought I may have made a mistake in agreeing to do a review.

It started kinda slow and I was having a hard time getting into the book. Before long that all changed and I was totally enthralled and wanting more. This book starts the story of Raine and Rennick Sherrill, twins that find out they have some great powers and maybe even a greater destiny than they could ever imagine.
