Review of Semper Fidelis IV: Phoenix by CJ Lock

Semper Fidelis IV: PhoenixSemper Fidelis IV: Phoenix by C.J. Lock

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

C.J. Lock writes in a way that deeply immerses you in the emotions of the protagonist so that you almost feel what they feel. I love that the books all link together and although the ‘Semper Fidelis’ books cover the same story as the ‘Desmond’s Daughter’ books, they are nevertheless completely different as you see everything from a different perspective. Not only that but parts where Caitlin was separated from Francis reveal what happened to him while she was elsewhere. So it’s almost like reading a new book. I can’t wait to see if the proposed story from Richard’s viewpoint will happen – I certainly hope so!

Interview with BBC Essex

On 21st January, I was lucky enough to be invited to speak on the local radio about the Ricardian anthology ‘Grant Me the Carving of My Name’, which is being sold in aid of Scoliosis Association (UK). I was interviewed by Rob Jelly, the afternoon presenter, who had had an advance copy of the book to read. If you would like to hear the interview it will be available here for a few weeks. It starts at about 3h 10mins.

Review of ‘A Dance Through Time’ by J.P. Reedman

A Dance Through TimeA Dance Through Time by J.P. Reedman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I always enjoy J.P. Reedman’s books. This one concerned a modern woman suddenly transported to Victorian London into another woman’s body only to find her handsome, enigmatic suitor has a dark secret. If you enjoy stories that transport you out of your humdrum existence and into one of magic, adventure and romance, this book is for you!
