MY REVIEW 

The Split is mainly set in South Georgia, a small, isolated island in the Atlantic Ocean.

Felicity is a specialist in ice, she has come to Georgia to work, but also to hide.

But Freddie has found her!

Will Felicity be able to escape before Freddie arrives?

The story is told in two timelines, Felicity’s present and past. It builds her story and you slowly learn why she is hiding……

This is a murder mystery with a really unique edge, there are the murders of rough sleepers, home invasion and yet it also deals with abuse, mental illness, homelessness and fear. There’s a clever, complex plot with some really creepy moments too…..my windows are all shut and locked that’s for sure….! Dark, tension filled and a thoroughly chilling read. I loved every minute.

Thank you to Alex at Orion Publishing for the opportunity to take part in this blog tour, for the promotional material and an eCopy of the book. This is my honest and unbiased review.

PUBLISHERS BLURB 

An enemy slain is not a conflict won… 

After decades of war the demon Te Mirkvahíl is dead. But its progeny endure, spilling from the Heart of Mirkúr, sowing death across the land of Ariath. If the people are to finally know peace, the Heart must be destroyed. Theailys An believes he can do just that with The Keepers’ Wrath, an infamous power focus wrought in Ariath’s yesteryears–but the weapon first must be reforged.

War spares no one…

Serece never intended to get involved in Ariath’s war. But history and demons have a way of pulling strings. When she learns Theailys An, a man whom she abhors, bears striking similarity to the first creator of The Keepers’ Wrath, Serece departs

 

her mountain world for Ariath to ascertain the truth.

From patience, hope…

For millennia Behtréal has walked the world alone. Rewriting history to resurrect his people is easier said than done. But Ariath holds the key–soon The Keepers’ Wrath will be remade.

Truth from madness…

As paths converge and a shadow falls across Ariath, one thing becomes increasingly and horrifyingly clear–these events have played out many times before.’
