Misery by Stephen King – The Folio Society Special Edition

Misery by Stephen King is a great book, actually it’s damn near masterful. It’s more than what first meets the eye; Misery is a deeply rich study of pain. It’s also on the other hand a rich craft book – odd I know, but with our main protagonist Paul Sheldon being a writer who has

Whispers in the Dark by Laurel Hightower

Whispers in the Dark by Laurel Hightower is pretty damn good, actually it’s pretty stunning – and to think this was her debut, bloody hell!

Nocturnal Blood by Villimey Mist

Nocturnal Blood is book one in the Nocturnal series and judging by book one this is going to be one hell of a ride. Nocturnal Blood is a vampire book, no, don’t you shrug your shoulders, it’s not a vampire book about teenage angst and shiny vampires with oiled muscle and chiseled good looks, it’s
