‘Song of the Sea Maid’ by Rebecca Mascull

Blurb: In the 18th century, Dawnay Price is an anomaly. An educated foundling, a woman of science in a time when such things are unheard-of, she overcomes her origins to become a natural philosopher. Against the conventions of the day, and to the alarm of her male contemporaries, she sets sail to Portugal to develop her theories. There she makes some startling discoveries – not only in an ancient cave whose secrets hint at a previously undiscovered civilisation, but also in her own heart. The siren call of science is powerful, but as war approaches she finds herself pulled in another direction by feelings she cannot control.’

I have recently finished:

‘The Girl Before’ by J.P. Delaney (Sampler)

image

Blurb:‘The book promises “twist after twist” to catch readers off-guard in a “haunting portrayal of the darkest shades of obsession”. Bierwerth said: “The Girl Before is a stunning psychological thriller which amazes me most in its utter uniqueness and the way it injects new energy into a genre that has become so hugely popular. It is fresh and different and it will genuinely surprise anyone who picks it up. We’ll have such fun making this the debut launch for autumn 2016”.’

Expected publication: Autumn 2016

‘Angelborn’ by L. Penelope

Blurb:

‘Maia:

It’s hard to be normal when you see the dead everywhere. So I gave up. I just focus on staying out of their way. But the guy haunting my roommate is different. He’s impossible to ignore, and now other people can see him too.

He says my roommate is the only one who can save him from an eternity of torment. But one night he follows me into my nightmare and rescues me from my demons.Now he’s all I think about. This must be what it’s like to fall… for someone who can never be mine.

Caleb:

A lifetime ago, I found my soulmate in the human world. But being angelborn means I don’t have a soul. When I lost my one true love, I lost my future and my freedom. Now, I have a second chance — she’s been reborn and I must gain her love again or serve out the rest of my eternal sentence alone.

But this time I am a fugitive with powerful angels hunting me, and I’m running out of time. You only get one soulmate, and mine isn’t the broken, scarred girl, who sees what no one else can. She’s a distraction I can scarcely afford — but I’m unable to stay away from her.’

Blurb: ‘Nineteen twenty-two. Grace has been sent to the stately and crumbling Fenix House to follow in her grandmother’s footsteps as a governess. But when she meets the house’s inhabitants, people who she had only previously heard of in stories, the cracks in her grandmother’s tale begin to show. Secrets appear to live in the house’s very walls and everybody is resolutely protecting their own.

    1. I am just writing the review for Angelborn. It is only a short book, but I did enjoy it. I wasn’t sure at first whether to request a copy or not because Angel stories can be such a hit and miss sometimes I find. It was good though…when I am not so swamped I might get the second one 🙂
