BLIND SIDE by Jennie Ensor

4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed by me as a member of Rosie Amber’s Review Team

This is the debut novel from Jennie Ensor, and it’s one of which she should be proud. Set in mid-noughties London, it’s a fairly standard spurned-lover-as-stalker plot, but with a lot more to it.  Middle class marketing exec Georgie only ever wanted to be friends with Julian, but when she starts a relationship with Russian immigrant Nikolai, she discovers that she never really knew Julian at all.  Alongside this storyline is the dark shadow of terrorism relating to the London bombings of the time – and Georgie’s growing fears that Nikolai might be involved.

I admit to being slightly underwhelmed by the beginning; both dialogue and narrative are rather…

Rise of the Sea Witch by @Rourkewrites #CoverReveal! #YALit #Fantasy

POTL: All Things Books, Reading and Publishing


Rise of the Sea Witch
Stacey Rourke
Publication date: June 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Details of the sea witch’s banishment have been exaggerated. The body count that preempted it was not. Once an illustrious princess, her hands and tentacles were stained with the blood of thousands. No one could comprehend how the hooks of madness dragged her down from her life of privilege.

Born Princess Vanessa of Atlantica, the ambitious young royal was one of two children born to the great King Poseidon. She and her brother, Triton, were groomed from birth to rule. Yet only one would ascend that coveted throne. While carefree Triton flits through his training with a cavalier demeanor and beguiling charm, Vanessa’s hunger for her father’s acceptance drives her to push herself to the limits of magic, and combat to become a leader worthy of her people.

When war against the humans ravages their…

Chapter 16 Solutions

The Price of Beauty in Strawberry Land

Solution

     publication1                 As Leroy and I had discussed, all parties were assembled in the downstairs conference room of the Gibson County Sheriff’s office. Some wore county provided clothing and handcuffs – some did not.  This was my show – I had better make it work.

Along with our cast of characters were sheriff Epsee, deputies Jeff Cole, Scotty Perry and FBI agent Giltner.  The room was full.

“I’ll skip introductions and formality,” I started. “You know who I am and I know most of you.  You’re here because we believe each of you have some knowledge and/or involvement in the disappearance and untimely death of Charlotte Luckey.  We are together going to discuss that this morning.  Here are the rules – I talk and you listen.  Please answer when I ask you a question.”

Immediately James Gannon stood up. “I have no knowledge or involvement in the death…

“Sanctuary Setting” 
by A.M. Manay

In both She Lights Up the Dark and the forthcoming She Marches Through Fire, November hides in the basement of an historic church in Oakland, California.  Churches have a long history as places of sanctuary for those hiding from persecution or arrest, so I found it thematically appropriate to make a church November’s place of…
