Degrees of Darkness – Tony. J. Forder ★★★★★

Blurb:

Pre-teen girls are being abducted from their homes and their families murdered.  When Frank Rogers, once a DI with the Met and now running his own debt collection agency, is told that his own daughter is missing, his son murdered, he naturally wants to become involved with the case. 

Soon Frank’s face is all over the news. In an unexpected turn of events, the killer contacts the police and says he is willing to talk, but only to Frank.

When the body of the first abducted girl is discovered, Frank realises it is a race against time to save his daughter. 

In order to solve the case, Frank must work out how the killer is picking his victims. 

But how do you catch a murderer who is hiding in plain sight? And can Frank unravel the mystery, when he has so much to lose?

My Review:

I love the cover of Degrees of Darkness. Can I also mention how many 5 star and 4 stars this book has received so far and I am going to add to that by giving my own five star review! 

Degrees of Darkness will have you hooked from the beginning and on the edge of your seat until the end of the story. It’s one of those books you don’t want to finish but at the same time you do, cannot win. This story is well written, easy to read and a one of a kind story. I enjoyed reading this story and would highly recommend this story to you all if you haven’t read it already. 

I have high expectations for future stories by Tony after reading this one and look forward to reading more by this author in the future. A well deserved five stars from me. Gripping story with plenty of turns to keep the reader engaged throughout

*BLOG TOUR* Untainted Blood – Liz Mistry ★★★★★

Blurb: In a city that is already volatile, tensions mount  after a Tory MP in Bradford Central is discredited leaving the door open for the extreme right-wing candidate, Graeme Weston, to stand in the resultant by-election. 

However, Graeme Weston is not what he appears to be and with secrets jeopardising his political career, he must tread very carefully.

Meanwhile, a serial killer targets Asian men who lead alternatives lifestyles and delivers his own form of torture. 

As DI Gus McGuire’s team close in, the deranged killer begins to unravel and in an unexpected twist the stakes are raised for Gus.

Are the murders linked to the political scandals or is there another motive behind them? 

DI Gus McGuire and his team are back and this might be their toughest case yet.
My Review: WOW! Liz has still got it. Very impressed. Untainted Blood is book number 3 in the brilliant DI Gus McGuire series. I would highly recommend to read them in order however, it still reads well as a standalone. Untainted Blood is easy to read, contains short chapters and is fast paced. It was lovely to be back in this world with familiar characters. I didn’t find it a short read but one definately worth reading. I awarded a well deserved five stars. I hope to see more from this series and author in the future. I would highly recommend this series to you all. All three books are currently 99p for kindle!

The Warden – D.P. Tighe ★★★★★

Now I need to start by apologizing for how quiet myself, my blog and my social media sites have been recently and that is because I have been struggling to concentrate on reading lately and have given myself a well deserved break!

Blurb:
Alice has lead a pretty normal life up until now. She wakes up finding herself trapped in a sick game of survival within the walls of an old asylum. She has to fight her way out while facing many psychotic enemies, no one said they were all living psychopaths though…
When she discovers how she actually got there she is forced to make some difficult decisions.
Will Alice survive the horror games?

My Review:
I must admit getting yourself out of a book slump for as long as I have been in mine lately is hard… BUT this book got me out of my slump!!! HURRAH! YAY. I’m back.

I awarded a well deserved five stars for this story, but it does come with a few warnings. The Warden SHOULD NOT be read at night especially if you’re alone, you will need to keep the light on for this story. Secondly, you will need a strong stomach as parts of this story made my stomach turn, you’ve been warned! Lastly, I would highly recommend you’re over 16 years of age to read this story personally.

The Warden is book one in the Twisted Minds series with a second book to follow in the future. You will need to be a patient reader as you will be hanging from a tall cliff after this book till you can dive back into book two. If you haven’t guessed already The Warden is a horror unlike any other I have read, it has EVERYTHING you would hate… The darkest most twisted scenarios you can think of. The only other thing I could compare it too is Saw, very similar but different!

The Warden is written well, easy to read and contains short chapters throughout. This is only a short story which can easily be devoured within a few hours and contains 114 pages of your worst nightmare..

If this sounds like your kind of horror I do have a SIGNED COPY to giveaway over on my Facebook page so keep your eyes peeled! I am now off to read something far more romantic and soft than this before my mind is haunted for life…
