1-What are you currently reading?
Poison City by Paul Crilley.
I’m 150 pages in and loving it. The main character has a talking drunk Dog as a companion, enough said! And, the first line in the book is classic and simply pure awesomeness!
The first thing the dog does when I walk through the door is sniff the air and say, ‘You forgot the sherry, dipshit.’
The name’s Gideon Tau, but everyone just calls me London. I work for the Delphic Division, the occult investigative unit of the South African Police Service. My life revolves around two things – finding out who killed my daughter and imagining what I’m going to do to the bastard when I catch him.
I have two friends. The first is my boss, Armitage, a fifty-something DCI from Yorkshire who looks more like someone’s mother than a cop. Don’t let that fool you. The second is the dog, my magical spirit guide. He talks, he watches TV all day, and he’s a mean drunk.
Life is pretty routine – I solve crimes, I search for my daughter’s killer. Wash, rinse, repeat. Until the day I’m called out to the murder of a ramanga – a low-key vampire – basically, the tabloid journalist of the vampire world. It looks like an open and shut case. There’s even CCTV footage of the killer.
Except… the face on the CCTV footage? It’s the face of the man who killed my daughter. I’m about to face a tough choice. Catch her killer or save the world? I can’t do both.
It’s not looking good for the world.
2-What did you recently finish reading?
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff.
A really decent read. You can find my review !!HERE!! for far more information on the book where I breach the 2000 word mark for a review with incoherant rambling and babbling about the book!
Destined to destroy empires, Mia Corvere is only ten years old when she is given her first lesson in death.
Six years later, the child raised in shadows takes her first steps towards keeping the promise she made on the day she lost everything.
But the chance to strike against such powerful enemies will be fleeting, so if she is to have her revenge, Mia must become a weapon without equal. She must prove herself against the deadliest of friends and enemies, and survive the tutelage of murderers, liars and daemons at the heart of a murder cult.
The Red Church is no ordinary school, but Mia is no ordinary student.
The shadows love her.
And they drink her fear.
3-What do you think your’ll read next?
Children of the Different by S.C Flynn.
The book itself isn’t released until September 10th but the author was kind enough to send me an eARC for review and I will also have an interview coming up with him during the month of September around the time of the books release. Oh, and look at the cover, compared to the usual muted dark and greyish tones of the post-apocalyptic genre, it’s a really vibrant and colourful cover giving a fresh approach that screams look at me!
Nineteen years ago, a brain disease known as the Great Madness killed most of the world’s population. The survivors all had something different about their minds. Now, at the start of adolescence, their children enter a trance-like state known as the Changeland and emerge either with special mental powers or as cannibalistic Ferals.
In the great forest of South West Western Australia, thirteen-year-old Arika and her twin brother Narrah go through the Changeland. They encounter an enemy known as the Anteater who feeds on human life. He exists both in the Changeland and in the outside world, and he wants the twins dead.
After their Changings, the twins have powers that let them fight their enemy and face their destiny on a long journey to an abandoned American military base on the north-west coast of Australia…if they can reach it before time runs out.
