The Belles – Dhonielle Clayton*

A rich and descriptive world with enough mystery and intrigue to make it impossible for you to put down until you’ve finished the last page.

Hello Stranger is an enjoyable read with plenty of love, suspense and intrigue.

Although The Sin Eater’s Daughter is only 300 pages long I felt a lot was crammed into those pages. It certainly wasn’t a “slow burner” it got going straight away.

Island in the East – Jenny Ashcroft*

Island in the east is a fast-paced adventure that I couldn’t put down, I can’t wait for the next one.
