Bloods Revolution- Book Review

E892D1D5-B714-44CB-8553-62157AF23547.pngThis is the second book on the ‘Blood’ series and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It follows on Blood’s Game and Holcroft is now a more seasoned soldier and no longer ‘spies’.

The story begins with the Battle of Sedgemoor, with the expectation and planning of a battle. Holcroft has strategies for his cannon and not always inline with his seniors. The story continues to Revolution of 1688 and the overthrowing of King James. There are historical facts mixed with the fiction which gives this such a believable feel and authenticity to the story.

The characters are well written and rounded and you can’t help but like Holcroft and his integrity.

There is the usual intrigue, exciting and frightening battles and even murder to keep you turning the pages. A real romping, war and glory tale

Dark Sacred Night – Book Review

0648B964-0145-46D6-962F-B09B14293FAB.pngDark Sacred Night is a crime thriller starring retired Harry Bosch and  Detective Renee Ballard.

Renee is working the night shift now after reporting her former boss for sexual harassment.

One night she see Harry searching through filing cabinets in the precinct, after using a bent paper clip to unlock it, he is looking for information related to a cold 9 year old case when a 15 year old girl had been murdered. 

After looking into the case herself, Renee offers to team up with Harry to help him with his investigation, so starts a rather unofficial partnership.

The writing is quite fast paced and entertaining with some great characterisation and a good eye for detail. There are several  plot lines that all start to come together, making this an enjoyable and absorbing read.

I would like to thank the Author/the Publishers/NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
