Creator of Shadows is HERE!

Scarlet Rain Series

The third book in the Scarlet Rain Series is finally out! Creator of Shadows is out today, and continues the journey of the immortals, as they battle against Feoran and the darker forces behind him. Read on to find out more!

Blurb

When Lorenna is kidnapped by Feoran, the head of the vampyric Clan, it’s a dent in the Resistance. While she was expecting his twisted advances to her, she didn’t expect to feel something for him in return.

But that’s the least of her problems.

The city is more in ruins than ever, the Cuans being cut off one by one to prevent the rebellious humans taking over any part of New London. And after the discovery made at the Factory, armies of clones now walk the streets, ready to kill and trained viciously by their vampire masters.

The rebels must band together in full force, both to rescue their beloved witch from Feoran’s clutches, and to give the final push against the Clan. But a traitor in the heart of their inner circle is plotting with a vampire who wants more than they have, threatening to bring everything they have worked for tumbling down around them.

Can Lorenna gain her freedom to help her friends, and can they finally cut the head off the serpent that is the Clan? Or will humanity forever remain in its iron grip?

Where can I find out more about the author?

I’m Miranda Stork, and I’m addicted. Addicted to writing and reading books, anyway. And chocolate, but that’s another issue – no interventions, please.

I live in the middle of a forest in North Yorkshire, spending my spare time as the wild woman of the woods, scaring small children and upsetting the sheep. On the days that I feel like being civilized, or I haven’t got any unicorns to ride, I sit down and pour the tumbling thoughts in my head out onto digital paper. Mainly the thoughts and characters come out in paranormal form, with a good smattering of romance, because everyone likes a good cuddle. But you can also find strong elements of thrillers, myths, and even dystopia amongst the pages of all my novels. I’ve wanted to write books ever since I first realised that fairytales were not the newspapers of the fairy kingdom, but the imaginings of actual people who wanted to tell fancy made-up stories to other people. From that moment, I was hooked.

Why do I write? Good question. It might be easier to just keep the stories in my head, or even just to write them for myself. But I want to share them. There is no greater delight for a writer than when a reader devours your book, and declares, “Something in that novel resonated with me. And I want MORE.” So grab your lucky clover and a baseball bat (there’s some nasty paranormal creatures where we’re going), eat the cookie with ‘eat me’ tagged on it, and enter through the tiny door into the world of Miranda Stork…

Review of The Pram by Betty Woodcock

Happy Friday! I’m floating on air today because of a certain ‘site’ reason, but on top of this, we have another great review! Today I am reviewing The Pram by Betty Woodcock!

 

When Carrie buys a secondhand pram for her eagerly awaited grandchild, she doesn’t realise it is a trap, or expect to be terrorized by her own aborted baby seeking vengeance . . . 
And so her nightmare begins . . .
She struggles to hide her revulsion of her scary grandchild, and her fear increases tenfold when it talks to her in her head. Then she begins to see ghosts and is convinced she is losing her mind, and tells no one of her escalating bizarre experiences. When the vindictive blasts of pain in her head coincide with her long-ago lover unexpectedly coming back into her life, she can’t resist asking his advice on how to deal with the weird baby; unfortunately this adds further complications to her problems. 
She has to keep him and the malevolent baby apart, because neither know that he is the father. 

To grab your copy, please visit here for Amazon US, or here for Amazon UK!

 

Good Points

This was such a clever ghost story. Not enough people do ghost stories now, I think because they are worried they will not be able to do an original twist on ghosts-whereas Betty Woodcock has done it.  The blurb didn’t do this book justice, as the chilling twists and turns kept me riveted from the start. Her descriptions were vivid, and believable, as the author did not rush anything, and yet kept the pace bubbling at a steady rate. My heart ached for the main character, and the daughter’s character truly annoyed me, as she was so selfish! But this all points to the author’s talent for creating great characters. The more thrilling aspects of the novel made me shiver and even glance over my shoulder a few times, they were so well written. I think what made this book better, is that Carrie’s outer life seemed so normal, and it was such a contrast to the events unfolding around her-and indeed, inside her mind! This is a very well-crafted novel that flowed so well you didn’t even see events sneaking up on you. On a more sombre note, I also thought the author’s note to her son was very touching.

 

Bad Points

This was another of those wonderful books with no bad points I could see. However, I do think that cover does not do the story justice, and it might be nice to see something that really made it ‘pop’. This did not of course, pull me away from the story.

 

Overall

A fantastic read, and a ghost story to grab now! This novel was a chilling read through the mind and past fears of a woman, and it dipped into moral issues as well as personal issues for the characters, all blended together to create something altogether fearful and deliciously addictive all at once.  Once you pick this book up, you will not want to put it down! Definitely a writer to watch.

I give this novel……5/5 stars!
