*BLOG TOUR* The Prole Soldier – Oliver Tidy ★★★★

Blurb; Theo lives and works in the Blue Zone of Rainbow City. He is almost sixteen at which age he will begin four years conscription – military or mines. He wants neither. He hates his life and despises the cruelty, injustice and inequality that prevails. When the opportunity arises for Theo to be involved in the fight for change he grabs it, knowing that failure will cost him everything.

My Review; The Prole Soldier is book one in the Rainbow City trilogy and dives straight into the story without much in the way of introductions and setting. This story is split into three parts..

Part 1 – The Blue Zone. Part 2 – Camp US. Part 3 – Game On.

The cover suits this story perfectly! The Prole Soldier is different from what I usually read but I loved it, enjoyed it and found it an interesting, fast paced read! I also found that as a whole our society can relate to parts of this story even in this century. This is a one of a kind story you won’t be able to forget in a hurry.

Main character Theo is a young, determined character throughout and I loved the relationship he had with Dee. From part two onwards the story turned into a sadistic game which had me hooked! I did find that the whole story did just end suddendly, cut off but I am hoping that will be picked up upon in book two.

Overall The Prole Soldier is a powerful, eye-opening and page turner of a story. A well deserved four stars and I cannot wait for book two! Highly recommend.

*Blog Tour* The Fallen Agent – Oliver Tidy ★★★★★

Blurb: 

Jess Albion has recently started a new life on the other side of the world with a new identity. She used to be MI5. Then a job went bad, someone died and she was made an example of in the British courts. But MI5 look after their own. Or they did until rumours of a planned Al Qaeda biological terror attack on London started circulating. Now someone in the British security services is giving agents up in return for information. No price, it seems, is too high to save London from the ultimate threat.

When Jess’s fresh start is compromised she has a choice to make: run and hide and spend the rest of her life looking over her shoulder or go looking for the threat and snuff it out. On her own, she’d run, but she has Nick on her side.

My Review: 

I must apologise as I was suppose to post this blog tour on the 21st but my laptop has been broken and still is so I will post the blog tour up now.

This book is based on the TV programme Spooks and is the first in a brand news series by Oliver. I have never personally seen Spooks but this read well for me ands I look forward to the sequel.

So I was going to keep the whole main character of this book a secret but as you can see above the main character is a woman in this thriller called Jess. Now, many main characters in this genre are male which instantly had me intrigued and on Jess’s side within this story.  I also love the cover for this book.

The Fallen Agent is a brilliant story to delve into and easy to read. This story is written well and will have you hooked from the first page till the last. I would highly recommend this story to you all if you haven’t read it already. I cannot wait to dive into more books by this author after my high expectations of finishing The Fallen Agent. A well deserved five stars from me and an author to keep an eye on in the future.
