Paris Kuyper has convinced Rose that they are lovers and as Paris could not bear for her to die, he has used an ancient and dark magic to save her from certain death. But the dark magic Paris has used comes at a price. A price which a terrible demon is determined to extract from Rose. As Rose struggles to understand what is happening to her, she must navigate Paris’s lies and secrets; secrets that Paris will do anything to protect. My Review Thanks to the Isobel at Blackthorn Book Tours for my invite on to the tour end e copy of Rose by Remi Ungar. Rose wakes up in a strange place, no memory, completely unaware of her whereabouts. And something strange is happening to her body… she soon finds she isn’t alone, in the shape of Paris, her apparent lover, or so he says… For me, it’s hard to say much more on the book without giving away the plot and spoilers. It was a difficult book for me to review…

Books / August 27, 2019

    Thank you to Emma-Nicole Lewis for my gifted copy of her new chilling Novel ‘ Three’ in exchange for an impartial honest review. 30 years ago,  on New Year’s Eve, Annabelle Montague was murdered in her home, Hillcrest House, by her husband, Sir Edward, Who was then convicted and sentenced to prison in a maximum security unit for the criminally insane. Now in the present day, returned to the scene of the crime by his Doctor, for experimental treatment, Sir Edward’s care whilst staying back at Hillcrest is overseen by Suzi and Jake, two clinical professionals. The story is told by the three temporary inhabitants of Hillcrest house, a tale of murder, love, ghosts, black magic, and more.. The characters are well-defined, particularly the insane, Sir Edward.

Supernatural twists and scares executed brilliantly , ‘Three’ is an intriguing,…
