BRUISED

BRUSIED is a stunning contemporary debut. It’s raw, powerful and unique. Every sentence is gorgeously written. The characters are so real, each voice strongly defined. I’d recommend this title to fans of PUSHING THE LIMITS - emotional, romantic, faultless. BRUSIED is a strong, compelling novel of guilt, love, and forgiveness,...

AFTER EDEN

AFTER EDEN is a spectacular sci-fi novel with a great focus on stars, planets and time travel. I was completely addicted to reading this book and raced through it loving every second. There were quite a few laugh-out-loud moments—there’s always one that makes the Uranus joke. It has a brilliant...

ALICE IN ZOMBIELAND

I really loved this book, despite it not being quite what I'd imagined. I thought that Alice would fall down the rabbit hole and land in a Wonderland filled with zombies. However, the Alice in Wonderland references are fairly light. I got more of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer feel...
