Review: Devoured World: Volume One

Devoured World: Volume One Devoured World: Volume One by Ricky Fleet
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It is my second attempt to read this book, my first attempt saw me fail, the first chapter seems badly formed and doesn't explain well yet doesn't leave things unexplained in a clear manner and I got bored. For my second read I perservered and was rewarded a little, there feels like an influence from Primeval and whilst it's not brilliant writing by the end of the book the characters had started to grow on me. I did look for book two. I didn't find book two.

Review: Chickenhawk

Chickenhawk Chickenhawk by Robert Mason
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a fascinating book, not a dry recounting of facts and easy to identify with the author, thoroughly worth reading.

Review: Bedrock of Empire

Bedrock of Empire Bedrock of Empire by Thomas M D Brooke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Loved it, disappointly no sequel yet. Was pleased that the story worked well enough that there were a couple of places where an obvious solution was presented to save the hero's bacon and I found myself thinking it would be disappointing to see the obvious solution but the hero needed his bacon saved only to be pleasantly surprised with a novel resolution.

Review: Roman Mask

Roman Mask Roman Mask by Thomas M.D. Brooke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved it. I didn't read the synopsis before starting, it came as an offered book on bookbub and I'm trying most freebies because why not? With friends we chat about what we are reading and I was unable to describe what sort of book this was (no zombies!) but turned out to just be an gripping story with a decent historical basis. I did promptly go and "purchase" (kindle unlimited) the sequel.
