SCALES BY PAULINE CREEDEN

scales tour banner

MY REVIEW

The story of a rejected mermaid by her own kind and how she lives and hides. Some of her life adventure could even look at how people live.

I loved this book and read it twice giving it a 5/5.
ScalesVerona is a bottom feeder. She is the one mer in her clan who is considered the ugliest and least intelligent. Growing up with the constant bullying and abuse wasn’t the worst of what her kind had in store for her. At seventeen years old, she must now endure “The Reckoning.”

The scales will measure her worth to her clan. Will she endure thirty days as a land-walker to gather information and knowledge to appease her clan and return a valued member? Will she wait three years, until she is twenty, and find a mer of her kind to accept her and marry her? Or will she suffer exile for the rest of her life?

Genre: YA

KANTARA BY KATY WALTERS

MY REVIEW

KANTARA was an interesting book full of vampires and mythology that was well put together making the story interesting. The way the gods were used with protection and war was quite different.

Without giving anything away myself, I am giving this a 5/5.


KantaraCarol2l copyCan you see them? Do you fear them? Are they truly what they seem?

Crossed love, intrigue, suspense and terror, set against a canvas stretching over the centuries, from the pyramids of ancient Egypt to the high rises of modern London.

Kantaramtep, Great Royal Queen of the first vampire family, is cast aside by her beloved Pharaoh. Over the centuries Kantara grows in power, yet no-one can replace her first love.

London, present day, she meets Darius, an enigmatic vampire. Despite Kantara’s reluctance, they join forces to quell an insurgence when trouble breaks out amongst the fledgling vampires.

The shocking truth they uncover threatens both the existence of mortals and the very nature of the vampire.

About the author:

katy

My main loves are writing, painting and singing. I began work as a PA but to my joy was spotted by an agent in London and had an exciting career as a singer, meeting and singing with some wonderful people. Singing meant a lot of travelling both in the UK and abroad. At one time, I toured Germany and Turkey singing for the American troops, which was a fantastic experience. But then, my husband and I wanted a family, so I said good-bye to the singing career, although I did the occasional gig. Having children is such a precious time, and I would say to anyone, treasure it, it goes so quickly and before you know it, you’re waving them off to Uni or pursuing their own dreams and their own homes.

I have always had a deep interest in psychology for various reasons, and especially the area of neurosis arising from abuse. Later, I was to study how we could use our body, mind and spirit to relieve pain and overcome some life-threatening diseases. One important thing here is, I always told my patients to continue with medical treatment along with the complementary and spiritual methods, for I believe medical research and medication is also a gift from God, Spirit or the Universe, as each of us wishes to name it.

I have loved writing from a child and during the years of study, research and treating some wonderful people, whom I called my friends, I would write at night, mainly short stories, and reams of poetry. I wanted to learn how to write self-help books for my clients, so I took creative writing courses at university, which led to writing a novel. So self-help novels turned to fiction but even so, I hope the novels help the reader through their own challenges, as the characters experience love, loss, passion, jealousy, illness, joy and conflict, even the threat of death.
