When Rachel marries dark, handsome David, everything seems to fall into place. Swept from single life in London to the beautiful Carnhallow House in Cornwall, she gains wealth, love, and an affectionate stepson, Jamie.
But then Jamie’s behaviour changes, and Rachel’s perfect life begins to unravel. He makes disturbing predictions, claiming to be haunted by the spectre of his late mother – David’s previous wife. Is this Jamie’s way of punishing Rachel, or is he far more traumatized than she thought?
As Rachel starts digging into the past, she begins to grow suspicious of her husband. Why is he so reluctant to discuss Jamie’s outbursts? And what exactly happened to cause his ex-wife’s untimely death, less than two years ago? As summer slips away and December looms, Rachel begins to fear there might be truth in Jamie’s words:
‘You will be dead by Christmas.’
Another big thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for letting me review this book! I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever, seen as I enjoyed The Ice Twins so much. The Fire Child has received many mixed reviews but I must say I really did enjoy it! I loved it! It is nothing like The Ice Twins but another fantastic story by a brilliant author. The Fire Child will have you hooked throughout and keeping you up all night with this thrilling plot full of twists and turns. I was gripped. I love the way this author writes her stories it makes you feel as if you’re there (even when you don’t want to be). There were parts I found creepy and disturbing but they just made me want to read on. This is another story I think would make an excellent film! I would highly recommend this story to you all especially if you enjoyed The Ice Twins. I cannot wait to read more by this author. The Fire Child is available to buy now and I would recommend you buy it ASAP, it really is a must read. Especially if you enjoy an outstanding thriller, mystery, suspense and bestselling story.
Enjoy, I did.. Don’t let it keep you up all night.
