This is my last post for this year
and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone that has visited this
site. It’s been a dream to get this
going and I can’t believe it has happened even though I am aware that it is
early days and some work needs to be done to improve the blog. All of us here wish everyone out there the
best for Christmas and if Christmas is not for you then for the New Year. May
it bring you and those you love every happiness.
This last post is another review but
about a book that is totally different to the review I recently posted. I am eclectic and sometimes it seriously
confuses me but there it is, I like different things and that includes styles
and genres. This next book is by an
author favourite of mine who usually writes paranormal. This novel certainly is in that genre but she has also written a time travel series that was an excellent read.
Caroline has a way with characters
that for me guarantees automatic connection and I think most of you have worked
out by now that this is my thing – reader and character connection. I can forgive anything if that is
strong. This is something I think
Caroline Hanson has done from the beginning and if you like this next book then
go back and read her previous books, well if you are like me you won’t be able
to stop yourself. Her men are not always
the most pleasant of creatures but yet there are elements that bind the female
lead and us in the process often against our wills.
I did a survey not so long ago and
one of the questions involved choosing books.
For me once I love an author I become a glutton for punishment but
usually it is more pleasure than pain. As
always click on the site below to go to Amazon where you can purchase Forgotten by Caroline Hanson. You will find the review there but just in
case this is what I had to say.
book and can't wait for more! (5 stars)
moment you begin reading this you are seriously enthralled, or at least I was.
How can you not be when you are presented with so many elements in this that
keep us continually guessing even when we know the answers, and further sends
chills down our spine in fear and then accelerates the heartbeat in
expectation? If this all sounds like a contradiction then in a way it is and
this very contradiction is the charm that holds the reader spellbound in the
vampires, an alpha male and malevolent beings are all there and no this is not
by any means a spoiler. This is a
paranormal romance so we expect certain things.
I am merely pointing out that we get them. We get them and then we are taken on this
complex, confusing ride of emotions and events interwoven with an attraction so
tangible that it jumps off the page and suddenly, we have to keep reading until
we can't turn another page. In this world of less than originality simply
because so much has been already done and technology gets it out there so
immediately it is refreshing and incredibly satisfying to have a book include
elements we like and want and twist them into an addiction. We get to the end knowing full well we now
have to wait to know more and we hate the author for it.
We need our fix and soon. Of course we do, she knows it and so do
we. She has us at her mercy.
