Alana Woods' book reviews: Counterpoint by Paul V Walters
20 July 2014 07:44 (GMT)Something wicked this way comes … and, boy, is it wicked.
Counterpoint is the final book in Paul V Walters’ Jonathan Savage trilogy and it doesn’t disappoint. In fact it ramps up a dozen rungs or so on the ladder delivering a non-stop fireworks show, burst after pyrotechnic burst.
The main players from Final Diagnosis and Payback unite to meet their varied ends. The villains are villainous, the heroes are real and, given what’s happening in our world, the scenario is all-too-terrifyingly possible.
The pace never slackens and the words flow effortlessly to create scenes easily conjured into images.
A really good finale. Thanks for the entertainment, Mr Walters!

Review: One Dark Night by Anna Faversham
17 July 2014 22:00 (GMT)One Dark Night by Anna Faversham
Lucy starts her life in early 19th Century Eastern England in a good home as her mother is a maid to a well-to-do family, but they have to leave to a life of poverty. Well for Lucy anyway and her mother takes all the money she earns. As she blossoms into late teenage, Lucy find herself the centre of attention of two eligible men who hate each other.
This tale of life in the times of smuggling depicts how hard it is to survive unless you get a chance. Lucy needs to make a choice, but which should she choose. As a reader I knew which one I wanted her to go with and at times was annoyed that nobody ever gave their true intentions. But that seems to be the way it was in those days. You could wait a few months before finding out the punchline of a joke.
I enjoyed this story even if I though Lucy was a bit child-like at times. There was enough romance and smuggling action and drama to keep me interested and wanting to read on.

Book of Shadows
Homicide detective Adam Garrett is already a rising star in the Boston police department when he and his cynical partner, Carl Landauer, catch a horrifying case that could make their careers: the ritualistic murder of a wealthy college girl that appears to have Satanic elements. The partners make a quick arrest when all evidence points to another student, a troubled musician in a Goth band who was either dating or stalking the murdered girl. But Garrett's case is turned upside down when beautiful, mysterious Tanith Cabarrus, a practicing witch from nearby Salem, walks into the homicide bureau and insists that the real perpetrator is still at large. Tanith claims to have had psychic visions that the killer has ritually sacrificed other teenagers in his attempts to summon a powerful, ancient demon.
All Garrett's beliefs about the nature of reality will be tested as he is forced to team up with a woman he is fiercely attracted to but cannot trust, in a race to uncover a psychotic killer before he - or she -strikes again.

The incredibly tense plot and mysterious characters will keep readers up late at night, jumping at every sound, and turning the pages until they've devoured the book." - Romantic Times Book Reviews
"Fast-paced with strong characterizations, fans will enjoy this superb thriller, as Adam and the audience wonder if The Unseen could be the killer." - Publisher's Weekly
