 I am so pleased to have a wonderful guest post from John Dickinson here on Fiction Fascination today. I simply loved Muddle and Win, which I reviewed last week here on the blog. I hope you enjoy John’s guest post as much as I did! – Carly 🙂

 About The Author

I left a career in Defence and international affairs to become a writer. I did it because…
Well, because….

1. I was lucky enough to get the chance.
2. My Dad is a writer, so why not?
3. I was getting tired of waiting for my talents to be recognised.… Read more >>>

Summary

Clouds are brewing over Cadogan House, and Merit the vampire can’t tell if this is the darkness before the dawn, or the calm before the storm. With the city itself in turmoil over paranormals and the state threatening to pass a paranormal registration act, times have never been more precarious for the vampires. If only they could lay low for a bit…

Then magic rears its ugly head when Lake Michigan turns black. The mayor insists it’s nothing to worry about, but Merit knows a panic is coming. She’ll have to turn to friends old and new to find out who’s behind this, and stop them before it’s too late for both the vampires and humans

Paperback, 321 pages
Published 2011 by Gollancz Fiction
My review
After the killing off of a certain male character in the last book, I sort of fell out with Chloe Neill and I picked up this still huffing a little bit lol!

On The Cover #23

,
 On The Cover is a feature I am going to do every(ish) Friday, Where I pick one book cover that sticks out, is really interesting or just beautiful. I think the cover of a book is very important, it’s the first thing a person sees and some of the time it’s the reason why a person will pick a book up and read the back. I will just pick a book that catches my eye from throughout the week.

 So come on Book Cover Lovers, share with me your favourite book covers.

My Pick This Week:

I don’t usually do this but the two covers are so totally different I had to share both.

Summary

Everyone has a Lifetime Deed Counter (LDC). It works like this:

You offer to help with the housework: Lifetime Good Deeds +1

You steal your little brother’s sweets: Lifetime Bad Deeds +1

Looks straightforward, huh? But what if your every thought was disputed by opposing forces of good and evil – by an angel wearing ray bans (called Windleberry) and a demon in the form of a wart (called Muddlespot)? And within your mind they were fighting a fierce battle over your actions, a battle dictated by a game of poker?

When Muddlespot is promoted from a devil’s janitor to special agent, the pressure is on for him to infiltrate Sally Jones and make her Bad.… Read more >>>

Debutantes by Cora Harrison‏

Summary

It’s 1923 and London is a whirl of jazz, dancing and parties. Violet, Daisy, Poppy and Rose Derrington are desperate to be part of it, but stuck in an enormous crumbling house in the country, with no money and no fashionable dresses, the excitement seems a lifetime away.

Luckily the girls each have a plan for escaping their humdrum country life: Rose wants to be a novelist, Poppy a jazz musician and Daisy a famous film director.

 My Review

My daughter absolutely loves knights, she has swords, shields and loves to watch Mike the Knight! So when I came across Knight School I knew this would be the perfect book for her. She definitely wasn’t disappointed we simply loved this fab little book. It has a really exciting, engaging storyline and some really attractively wonderful illustrations! There is also a fab little message in here too. Knight School is a must read for boys and girls alike, we highly recommend it!

Little Knight and Little Dragon are starting their very first day of school. But the best-friends are seperated as Little Knight goes to school in the day and Little Dragon goes at night time.… Read more >>>
