*BLOG TOUR* Abel’s Revenge – Ross Greenwood ★★★★★

Blurb; This is a story about a city. As with all others, it’s a place of violence. There are murderers, and they live among us.

This is also a tale about a couple — sometimes friends, occasionally lovers, but always partners. Dan and Olivia are fighting modern battles; the ones parents have over a lack of money, time or peace.

An escalating serial killer terrifies the streets and homes. The body count rises as their relationship crumbles. Society reveals its dark side, and no one is safe. Dan and Olivia experience this first-hand as danger closes in.

Will Abel’s reign of terror ever end?

Who will live, and who will die?

My Review; Wow. This is a MUST READ! Brilliant. I did not expect any of that. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars. You need to read this thriller. It will stick with you. I managed to devour this book in less than a day, very fast paced and addictive.

Abel’s Revenge is a one of a kind story, contains short chapters and is told through different characters. I actually started to feel sorry for Dan’s character at times even though part of his situation was self inflicted…

I DID NOT EXPECT THAT OUTCOME AT ALL! Neither will you. It is a true jaw dropper and will leave you shocked! Also ends with a cliffhanger open for the reader to interpret what they think. Seriously gob smacked right now. Very impressed. Will be going into my top 20 of 2018!

*BLOG TOUR* Fifty Years of Fear – Ross Greenwood ★★★★★

Blurb:

Could you forgive murder? What if it was something worse?

A childhood accident robs Vincent of his memories, causing him to become sensitive and anxious around others. His differences attract bullies, and he comes to rely heavily on the support of his family.

After the devastating loss of his parents, a remarkable woman teaches him to embrace life and, little by little, he realises the world is far more forgiving than he imagined. When fragments of his memory return, he begins to unravel his past.

Who was his mother? What kind of a man is his brother, Frank? And why does death surround them?

Fate is cruel. History is dark. Things are not as they seem.

Perhaps he should have stayed at home.

My Review:

I want to start by saying I loved Ross’s previous book The Boy Inside and looked forward to reading this one with very high expectations. I was not disappointed, yet again another brilliant story! This story is written well, easy to read, fast paced and a very deep thought provoking read. I would highly recommend this story to you all and the previous books by this author. Ross is an upcoming author we all need to keep an eye on in the future and I cannot wait to read more upcoming books by this author. I have nothing to fault with this story, a great read! A well deserved five stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* The Boy Inside – Ross Greenwood. ✶✶✶✶

Blurb:
How can you make the right decisions if everything you’ve been told is a lie?

With absent parents and broken friends, twenty-one year old Ben is making choices, which are ruining his life. In jail, again, he and his cellmate, Jake, take a hostage in a futile gesture against a system they can’t control.

This powerful, beautifully written novel gives a vivid and realistic picture of those we send to prison.

Who would you rely on if you were locked up?
Do we ask the most from the ones who have the least?
Life is never easy when you are a boy inside.

My Review:
WOW! I hardly ever read stories to do with prison, prisoners and criminals etc.. Especially like this one and I loved it! A new favourite for me, I find prison and how prisoners and workers cope in that environment very interesting but I don’t fancying being in prison thanks! I loved how the story was told and the way it was split into different parts, it suited the story really well. One minute I felt Ben deserved everything he got then the next I am thinking NO, RUN RUN RUN! Or backing him up to sort himself out and I am not one to help criminals (usually ;)).

The Boy Inside is written well, easy to read and contains short chapters. It will have you hooked. This is the first book I have read by Ross and it will not be my last either. I really enjoyed reading this story, it’s another well deserved five stars from me! This story highlights just how easy criminals can end up back in prison and why. You will not want to put this book down! There are many scenes which do contain ‘heavy fighting’ but you would expect that within prison wouldn’t you? There was a particular few chapters in this story that really had me LAUGHING OUT LOUD which you wouldn’t expect from a book like this but it was perfectly placed and relevant. Loved it! Highly recommend! Enjoy.
