In the Shadow of Blackbirds

Although I had wanted to read In the Shadow of Blackbirdssince I saw it on a blog somewhere, I really didn’t know what to expect when I opened it. The synopsis is intriguing but it doesn’t give a whole lot away – which I came to see as a good thing the further I read. Mary Shelley Black lives in a time of upheaval and her personal life isn’t any less hectic; her mother isn’t around, her father has been imprisoned as a traitor, and her sweetheart, Stephen, has left to…

Prisoner

Prisoner was one of those books I bought on a whim and then devoured with absolutely no feelings of guilt despite the leaning TBR piles gracing my bedroom. The synopsis immediately made me take notice and as soon as the book had downloaded I started reading and didn’t want to stop. I suppose in one way, the idea of this book is nothing particularly new. The prison is a titillating setting and hasn’t been overdone - however much I might wish there were more stories based round that idea. However, there…
