Rating: 8 out of 10.

Spirit Sight is an epic fantasy novel in the series Last of the Gifted that was released in 2020 set in the medieval era in the heart of Wales in Britain. The author, Marie Powell, is a knowledgeable and passionate author, specialising in phonics books for children in early years and middle-grade. So the leap to Young Adult writing with such rich history is amazing, as she has done mountains of research for the story, surrounding how Wales might have been like at that time.

Rating: 10 out of 10.

Firstly, I would like to begin this review with deep gratitude to the authors of this book series for letting me into their world and inviting me to listen to their audiobook collection of Aces High, Jokers Wild Books 1-3.

Interviewing Marc Watson: Death Dresses Poorly

  1. Where did your writing journey begin?

I think it has two distinct, yet, important starts. The first of which was when I was 15, and instead of doing my schoolwork, I began hand-writing a fantasy trilogy in a notebook. It was terrible, and hacky, and had no paragraphs or proper punctuation, and I still love it to this day. That’s when I realized I genuinely enjoyed writing. That was something I wanted to do.

A Review of: LeRoux Manor

Rating: 7 out of 10.

LeRoux Manor is a standalone paranormal horror novel, written by Liz Butcher and was published in 2020. LeRoux Manor is the most recent novel that Butcher has had published. The novel focuses on a young teenage girl, Camille, who has travelled with her family from Australia over to cold, foggy England to claim an old manor house that her recluse of an uncle left to her father in his will. The premise is indeed a creepy one: old Victorian building, girl feeling lost in another country, and regarding the house – there’s something wrong with it, something very wrong. The cover helps set the scene of a beautiful Victorian building, but we can see that it’s very old and there’s something unsettling about the image. It gives the book the unnerving atmosphere that we see in mainstream horror novels.
