What a great book! I read this on the strength of previous reviews, and I'm very glad I did. Very well written, the story keeps you gripped until the final denoument. And what an ending! I didn't see that one coming. Thoroughly recommended

The Demon Girl

by Penelope Fletcher

A good tale, with some interesting twists on an old theme. Unfortunately it was spoilt for me by very poor editing. In places I was left wondering who was talking to whom, and wrestling with odd punctuation which spoilt the narrative flow. There is a very good story in there, trying to get out. I notice that there is a sequel due out shortly - please, Ms Fletcher, get a professional editor/proofreader to look over it first!

Omaha

by Kevin O'Kane

I downloaded this book on the strength of the positive reviews, and how glad I am that I did! An excellent story of the mob vs. a few uber-geeks who can seemingly control the whole of the world's IT infrastructure. Quite a lot of techie terms, but they are well described and explained to Mike, the 'hero' who is fairly technologically illiterate. The story itself is a non-stop helter skelter of the baddies chasing the goody (Mike), and his friends who are always one step ahead of the mob. Exciting and gripping, it would make a terrific action movie - the body count is pretty high! Thoroughly recommended.

Worlds Unseen

by Rachel Starr Thomson

Excellently written, very good prose style and a gripping story. It carries you on at a pace and is hard to put down. I did find the oblique christian type references to the second coming of 'The King' a little irritating though, so only 4* instead of 5
