Godless by Derek Porterfield, picks up directly where Book 1 of the Mute Cat Chronicles ended. We pause for a moment and then are flung back into this ripping yarn about resistance in a techno-religious city. When power corrupts who will take a stand?
This is my first introduction to the book series Araminta Spook who is a Chief Detective of her own detective agency. She’s funny, intuitive and decisive. Perfect for this role. Do join her on this new adventure to find out what mysterious happening are occurring at Gargoyle Hall. You’re in for a treat if you do.
Gargantis is another cracking read, full to the brim with more sinister happenings in Eerie on Sea. Verdict: Lovely place to visit, too scary to live there, never a moment’s peace. A thrilling middle grade mystery.
The Missing Diamonds was an engaging mystery, which avoided being one dimensional with great writing, and an appreciation (but not blinkered focus) on the target audience.
Eerie-on-Sea is revealed to be a wonderful place – thought I’m not sure that I want to live there, but would be extremely happy to visit – which is filled with peculiar happenings and strange wondrous everyday things, that the inhabitants take for granted.
There are twists and turns galore, robots, machinations and comeuppances.
My enjoyment of the investigation was further enhanced by the social commentary.
The Possession is the definition of creepy: with different realities, town secrets and weird occurrences. This book made me look up the definition of paranormal and supernatural and realise that both applied.
