How to be a Hero by Cat Weldon – book review

Disclosure. This post is a review of a book I was sent for free.. All opinions are my own.

I received a free proof copy of the book How to be a Hero by Cat Weldon to review. To find out more about the author you may visit her website.

How to be a Hero by Cat Weldon

Here is the book blurb.

A no-good viking thief. The worst-ever trainee valkyrie. An ungodly case of mistaken identity.

When failing trainee valkyrie Lotta mistakes an unconscious viking thief, Whetstone, for a fallen hero and takes him triumphantly to Valhalla, things are definitely not turning out to be epic or glorious. Having lost a precious talking cup, Whetstone is also desperate to cover up his mistake and the two embark on a quarrelsome journey to find it and regain their heroic status. But Loki the trickster God is desperate to get his hands on the cup with a plan to unleash chaos across the nine worlds. Can Whetstone prove himself a hero after all when it matters most?

The first in a hilarious and fast-paced trilogy about how to be brave, what it means to be a hero and just how confusing the Norse Gods really are. Fully illustrated throughout, Cat Weldon’s How to Be a Hero is perfect for fans of How to Train Your Dragon and Who Let the Gods Out.

I was hoping to get a review from my younger son for this book, as he is very interested in Norse  mythology. However as we have reached the publication date and he still hasn’t started reading the book, you’ll have to make do with just a review from me.

The book draws you in with a couple of double page illustrations at the front. We have the nine worlds all hanging from the huge Yggdrasil tree with Asgard at the top. And then a map of Krud in Midgard, where the story opens, featuring signs like “Ivor the Nose Grinder, Gerroff My Land! Travelling Minstrels will be force fed Cabbage till they burst!” Just the sort of humour that will particularly appeal to young readers. The book has been illustrated by Katie Kear brilliantly.

I’m not very knowledgeable on Norse Mythology but the story all tied in with what I do know of Norse gods and worlds. Loki the trickster god and his son Vali certainly cause havoc in this tale.

The story begins with Whetstone, an orphan aged about 12, stealing a magical golden talking cup from Awfulrick, the Viking chief of Krud, on behalf of Light Finger, the greatest thief in all the known world. We then swap to Asgard to introduce Lotta who is of a similar age, and is training to be a Valkyrie in class 3 but not doing too well. Class 3’s next mission will be the first time they leave Asgard and they will be travelling to Midgard to collect fallen warriors to fill Valhalla.

Whetstone then hides the cup before taking cover himself. But things don’t go quite to plan. He is attacked and left unconscious. Lotta, finds him and assumes he is dead, so takes him back to Asgard as a “fallen hero”, Whoops.

The two have to then pair up to sort out the mess they are in. Lots of fun. Plus throw a dragon into the mix. The book finished leaving me tantalising clues ready for books 2 and 3 in the trilogy, but I’ll have to wait as book 2 doesn’t publish until the summer.

How to be a Hero is a great fun fantasy mythological adventure read, which I highly recommend to children age 9-12. Newly published today.

Jimmy Coates: Killer by Joe Craig – book review

My latest personal choice of read, rather than a requested book review is Jimmy Coates: Killer by Joe Craig. To find out more about the author you may visit his website.

Jimmy Coates Killer by Joe Craig

Here is the book blurb.

An eleven-year-old boy discovers he has strange powers, and a future that holds mystery, adventure – and death!

Bending his knees, Jimmy let go of the windowsill and slowly tipped backwards. Surely this is impossible, he thought, even as he could feel himself doing it. He pushed out with his legs and the thrust sent him flying backwards into the air… Then his fingers locked on to the cold wire of the fence, poised in a perfect handstand on the top.

Who are the mysterious men chasing Jimmy across the city?
Why are they after him?
What are Jimmy’s parents keeping from him and who can he trust?
And how come he can suddenly do all this really cool stuff…?

This is the first book in the Jimmy Coates series and was published back in 2005.

The story begins with Jimmy discovering he can jump through the upstairs closed window and fall onto the concrete feeling no pain, when trying to evade the strangers who have mysteriously arrived at his home to take him away from his family. He hides under the car, as they lead his parents away but his older sister Georgie manages to run off.

He eventually makes his way to the police station, but they seem just as suspicious as the others, so he legs it out of there.

Why is everyone after him?
Who can he trust?
How has he suddenly got these mysterious super powers?
Where have his parents been taken?
Where is Georgie?

Gradually things become clearer to Jimmy but it doesn’t make his decisions any easier. Plenty of twists and turns to come in this story set in the Neo-Democratic State of Great Britain.

Jimmy Coates: Killer is an excellent book, targeted at readers from about age 10-14. A great read that had me immediately adding books 2-7 to my TBR list.

Spoiler Alert. The only disappointing thing is when you reach the back of the book and it mentions the website www.jimmycoates.co.uk with lots of fun activities, secret files, etc, but when I visited, all I found was a Google map to explore Jimmy’s World. However the map features locations from all books in the series.

The Little Grave by Carolyn Arnold – book review

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

I have received a free e-copy of the book The Little Grave by bestselling author Carolyn Arnold to review. To find out more about the author you may visit her website.

The Little Grave by Carolyn Arnold

Here is the book blurb.

Detective Amanda Steele stops just inside the doorway, recognizing the victim’s face instantly. He seems so vulnerable in death; soft, human, even harmless. But she can never forget the evil he has inflicted. Her heart is hammering as she remembers her precious daughter, with her red curls and infectious laugh, and how she was lowered into that little grave…

It’s been five years since Detective Amanda Steele’s life was derailed in the path of an oncoming drunk driver. The small community of Dumfries, Virginia, may have moved on from the tragic deaths of her husband and daughter, but Amanda cannot. When the driver who killed her family is found murdered in a motel room, she can’t keep away from the case.

Fighting her sergeant to be allowed to work an investigation with such a personal connection to her, Amanda is in a race to prove that she can uncover the truth. But the more she digs into the past of the man who destroyed her future, the more shocking discoveries she makes. And when Amanda finds the link between a silver bracelet in his possession and the brutal unsolved murder of a young exotic dancer, she realizes she’s caught up in something darker than she ever imagined and suspects that more girls could be in danger.

But as Amanda edges toward the truth, she gets closer to a secret as personal as it is deadly. Amanda has stumbled upon a dangerous killer, and she must face some terrible truths in order to catch this killer – and save his next victim as she couldn’t save her own daughter…

This is the first title in the new Detective Amanda Steele series from Carolyn Arnold. I’m always impressed how many series this author can juggle simultaneously, but this is the first time that I am starting with book one in a series.

The prologue draws you in with a killing in Atlanta over five years ago, before introducing you to the main character Amanda Steele in Virginia, who has just had a hot one-night stand in a motel with a stranger. We soon learn that Amanda lost her husband and six-year old daughter five years ago, killed by drunk driver Chad Palmer and since then life has just held pain and sorrow. She sleeps with strangers and pops sleeping pills.

Not long after abandoning this latest guy, Amanda gets a call from friend and colleague Becky. Chad Palmer has been found dead, days after being released from prison. Even with the conflict of interest, Amanda manages to talk herself onto the case, but Sergeant Malone insists she doesn’t work solo and assigns her a partner, namely new guy joining the team, Trent Stenson. Plus he wants details of her alibi.

So who has killed Chad? How can Amanda investigate the death of a man who destroyed her future? How will she track down her sexy mystery man alibi? Can she work well with new partner Trent? And what is the connection with that prologue?

Lots of strands to this story as the investigation progresses, with plenty of surprises that I would never have guessed.

The Little Grave is newly published today and available on Amazon. Once again Carolyn Arnold has delivered a real page turner that had me gripped throughout.

Anno 2020 by James Morcan – book review and giveaway

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

I have received a free e-copy of the book Anno 2020 by James Morcan to review. You may find out more about the author on his website.

Anno 2020 by James Morcan

Here is the book blurb.

Eleven individuals around the world must communicate remotely with each other while separated during the coronavirus lockdowns of Anno MMXX (Year 2020).

I’ve read several books which James Morcan has written jointly with his father Lance, so I was very interested to see what his first solo title would be like.

This fictional book is set during the Coronavirus multiple lockdowns of 2020 with the characters using various forms of digital technology to communicate, such as video chat or podcast. Some of the chapters focus on individuals but most are between a pair of characters and the story swaps around between them all.

All the characters are in different parts of the world, some where they live and some who were far from home when lockdown was enforced, like 19 year old Emma in Wuhan. They all have complicated issues in their lives, which the author cleverly draws out.

Even though it is one novel, the book has a feel of short stories as we keep alternating back and forth between the scenes. And although you see the connection between each pair, you do start wondering where it is all leading. But it follows a very clever path through to the conclusion.

Anno 2020 is available on Amazon in Kindle format. A great topical read that we can all relate to.


And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway a kindle copy of Anno 2020 to one lucky winner. Open worldwide.
Plus you don’t even need to own a kindle to read this, as you can download the kindle app free to your phone or tablet.comper friendly badge

100 Ways to be Kind by Theresa Cheung- book review

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I received for free.  All opinions are my own.

I have received a free e-copy of the book 100 Ways to Be Kind: Everyday Actions to Change Your Life and Save the World by bestselling author Theresa Cheung to review. You may find out more about the author on her website.

100 Ways to be Kind by Theresa Cheung

Here is the book blurb.

Acts of everyday kindness can boost your mood and immunity, lower blood pressure, ease anxiety, slow the ageing process, improve the quality of your relationships (including the one you have with yourself) and give you a sense of deep meaning and purpose.

100 Ways to be Kind is a road map of practical, simple and immediately actionable ways to be kind including how to be kinder to yourself, to others and to nature.

Theresa debunks the damaging myth that being kind is a weakness and shows that it is not anger or aggression that brings out our true inner grit, but kindness.

Science has proven that there are powerful, potentially lifesaving reasons to be kind. The kinder you are, the more likely you are to experience happiness.

Kindness is the simple and scientifically proven remedy that everyone needs to administer right now. So, if you want to harness the power of kindness to transform your life and help save the world at the same time but aren’t quite sure how – this book is for you.

This isn’t one of my usual genres to read but when I was asked to review this book, the tagline of Everyday Actions to Change Your Life and Save the World got me interested. Regular followers of my blog will be aware that I am trying to focus on sustainability and doing my best for the environment.

This book was written during the Coronavirus pandemic at a period when I saw so many people stepping up in my local community with acts of kindness. I did my bit too, volunteering to help with shopping and collecting prescriptions for those shielding.

The book starts with a long introduction followed by the science of kindness including plenty of reasons why kindness is also good for our health. Then it debunks some myths about kindness. For instance “It’s too late” or “I’m too old“. No you’re not. Look at how many millions Captain Tom Moore raised. I’m sure some of my UK readers contributed to his fundraising, just like I did myself.

We then move onto the ways to be kind, starting with 25 ways to be kinder to yourself, 15 to be kinder online, 40 to be kinder to others and 20 to be kinder to nature. I certainly gained some great ideas but also saw that some of the suggestions were things I already do daily. However I felt the book was key to helping us put kind acts into practice.

The author urges the reader to carry out at least one way to be kind every day for 100 days. It isn’t 100 days since I started reading the book but I sincerely hope the kindness remains at the front of my mind. This is the first time that I have been out distributing Christmas dinners and I would like to think that perhaps this book helped motivate me.

100 Ways to be Kind is available on Amazon in paperback, audiobook or Kindle format. A great book which you can easily dip into for a revisit.

The Fair by John A Heldt – book review

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

I have now read quite a number of time travel stories by John Heldt and enjoyed them all immensely. So I was very pleased when John asked me to review his latest book, The Fair. And to find out more about the author you may visit his website.

The Fair by John A Heldt

Here is the book blurb.

From the author of THE LANE BETRAYAL comes the second novel in the Time Box saga.

Months after stealing two time machines from a madman who wants them back, the Lanes, a family of six, seek safety and contentment in 1893, the latest stop on a journey through time. While parents Mark and Mary find relief at Chicago’s World’s Columbian Exposition, an extravaganza of science and splendor, children Jeremy, Laura, and Ashley find romance, friendship, and thrills.

Older son Jordan, meanwhile, heads west in search of answers. Grieving the loss of a lover from 1865, he travels to Virginia City, Nevada, where he integrates himself into a storied mining community and the heart of a pretty library clerk.

Billionaire Robert Devereaux could not care less. Reeling from the theft of his million-dollar devices, he sends an assassin to the past to retrieve his property and rid the world of his former business partner and his troublesome clan.

Filled with humor, heartbreak, and suspense, THE FAIR follows a modern family on the adventure of a lifetime as they navigate their way through an unforgettable year in American history.

The Fair is the second book in the Time Box series. You may see my 5 star review of the first title The Lane Betrayal here.

This story starts where The Lane Betrayal ended with the Lane family time-travelling again, firstly a brief stop in the 1790’s and then onto the Gilded Age, visiting Chicago in 1893 at the time of the World Fair.

But Mark Lane’s corrupt business partner Robert still wants those two time travel boxes back and accusations are flying at friend Randy. The team are scouring public records from the 1790s for clues.

Meanwhile Mark’s eldest son Jordan needs time alone (as the blurb says to grieve for the loss of a lover from 1865, I won’t say anymore as I think the blurb has said too much, for those who may not have read book one yet). He heads west, ending up in Virginia City, Nevada.

New friends and significant others are made. And Jordan takes big risks without consulting the rest of the family.

So have the Lanes covered their tracks or will there be breadcrumbs for Robert to find? And will they do anything that disturbs the timeline?

Once again John Heldt has delivered a brilliant page turner with plenty of twists and turns, which I couldn’t put down.

The Fair is available on Amazon, in Kindle format and paperback. As usual, another fabulous read from John Heldt which I highly recommend. And I’m really looking forward to reading Sea Spray, the next title in the series.

And you may be interested to see my reviews of some of John Heldt’s other titles.
Firstly The Carson Chronicles series.
River Rising
The Memory Tree
Indian Paintbrush
Caitlin’s Song

Plus some of his earlier titles.

The Girl Behind the Wall by Bruce Wetterau – book review

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

I have received a free e-copy of the book The Girl Behind the Wall by Bruce Wetterau to review. You may find out more about the author on his website.

The Girl Behind the Wall by Bruce Wetterau

Here is the book blurb.

Did Edgar Allan Poe know more about murder than he revealed in his bizarre stories of murder and mayhem? Was he in fact guilty of killing a girlfriend in a fit of rage many years before he became famous? Bruce Wetterau’s taut thriller weaves a murder mystery worthy of Poe himself as it follows Poe through actual events in the last months of his life. The year 1849 saw the real-life Poe dealing with his alcoholism, failing health, poverty, and painful memories of his recently deceased child-bride wife. His life had become a psychological pressure cooker, with severe anxiety attacks and bouts of strange hallucinations. The Girl Behind the Wall opens in early 1849. Poe is being tormented by frightening visions about murdering Annabel Lee while he was a student at the University of Virginia. Afraid of the hangman’s noose, Poe knows he can never tell anyone about the repressed memories haunting him. But a newspaper reporter named Sam Reynolds has overheard him talking erratically about Annabel while in a drunken stupor. That a man as famous as Poe could be a murderer would be the scoop of a lifetime and Reynolds will do anything to get it. Flash forward nearly two hundred years to the present. The book’s hero, Clay Cantrell, accidentally uncovers damning evidence–Annabel’s skeleton and a locket from Poe–behind an old brick wall at the university. While the mystery of Annabel’s murder and Poe’s strange visions unfolds in flashbacks, Cantrell and friends launch a search of their own for the truth about Annabel’s death. But another murder mystery much closer to home overtakes them when a cold-blooded serial killer named the Raven claims his first victim, a UVA coed. Obsessed with Poe, the Raven stages his murders with clever ties to Poe’s works. Clay tries to stop the murders and soon winds up in the Raven’s cross hairs. Though this isn’t the first vicious killer Clay–an ex-Army Ranger–has fought, he doesn’t know the Raven has a diabolical plan to execute him. Will Poe finally reveal the truth about Annabel, or will he take the secret to his grave? Can Clay escape the Raven’s plot, find what drives the Raven’s murderous obsession with Poe, and at last answer the question, who killed Annabel Lee?

That is a long blurb and I initially wondered if not having read any of Poe’s works would impact on my appreciation of the story. I’m not sure that I have even seen any films based on them either. But not so, there is plenty of information regarding Poe including references to his works throughout the tale. The author has certainly put a lot of research into his story.

This is the third title in the Clay Cantrell series but works fine as a stand-alone read. I haven’t read either of the two previous titles.

The story starts in 1849 with New York reporter Samuel Reynolds discovering Poe drunk amongst the garbage in an alley, muttering about Annabel. We then skip to the present day where Clay Cantrell and friend Mac Harper discover a 190 year old skeleton walled up at the University of Virginia. A locket on the skeleton is inscribed with “My beloved Annabel. Your devoted Eddy. Oct 1826”.

Putting two and two together, Clay and his friends start researching into Poe’s history, to try to determine whether it was Poe who killed Annabel.

Meanwhile, modern day serial killer, the Raven strikes and all his murders are staged with links to Poe’s works. For instance , The Raven is a famous poem by Poe.

The story continues to switch back and forth between the present day and 1849.

The Girl Behind the Wall is available on Amazon in both kindle format and paperback. A good mystery, with some great twists.

The book also contains a timeline of key events in Poe’s Life in 1849 to show where fact has cleverly been woven into the fiction.

Earl of Sin by Tammy Andresen – book review

Disclosure.  This post is a review of an e-book I was sent for free.  All opinions are my own.

I have received a free e-copy of the book Earl of Sin by Tammy Andresen to review.

Earl of Sin by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

He’s a man of sin and she’s tempting beyond belief…

The Earl of Sinclair is a man returning from the brink. Raising a daughter on his own and only just skirting financial disaster, he’ll be the first to admit he needs help. But a beautiful tutor who whisks into house and begins making changes. He’s not certain this was a good idea. It’s one thing that his daughter loves her, but his own heart is in jeopardy.

Miss Mary Chase has been a burden on her family long enough. Tutor for an earl is the perfect opportunity to prove she can have a successful life as a spinster. But she didn’t count on the earl being so handsome. Nor did she realize he’d need as much help as his daughter.

The question now, is she the woman to heal his broken heart?

This is the sixth and final title in the Regency Romance Lords of Scandal series, but works well as a stand-alone read. I had thought that Baron of Bad would be the final title, until both Mary and the Earl of Sinclair were mentioned in more than passing in the last chapter. Although Mary is a Chase cousin, she hadn’t featured much in the earlier titles.

Mary, aged 24 considers herself on the shelf. She had previously been companion to her younger cousins but now is looking to leave the family home by applying for a position as a tutor to Anne, young daughter of the widowed Earl of Sinclair. Anne’s mother sadly died in childbirth.

However the Earl had been envisaging someone much older for the role, not someone who bears a striking beautiful resemblance to his wife. He agrees a 2 week trial position for Mary as tutor. Hearts are racing. Where will this go?

Earl of Sin is available on Amazon in both Kindle format and paperback. As usual, Tammy gives us another nice light short romantic story. I know this is an ARC, but it did seem to have a few more errors in than usual, so hopefully those have been corrected.


About the author

USA Today Bestselling Author, Tammy Andresen lives with her husband and three children just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up on the Seacoast of Maine, where she spent countless days dreaming up stories in blueberry fields and among the scrub pines that line the coast. Her mother loved to spin a yarn and Tammy filled many hours listening to her mother retell the classics.

Over Sea Under Stone by Susan Cooper – book review

My latest personal choice of read, rather than a requested book review is Over Sea Under Stone by Susan Cooper. To find out more about the author you may visit her website.

Over Sea Under Stone by Susan Cooper

Here is the book blurb.

On holiday in Cornwall, Simon, Jane and Barney Drew discover an ancient map in the attic of the Grey House, where they are staying with their mysterious Great-Uncle Merry. They know immediately that it is special. But it is much more than just a map. It is the start of a quest to find a grail, a source of great power that could contain – or resurrect – the powerful, age-old forces of evil in the world. And the Drews are not the only ones searching for it.

This is the first book in the award-winning Dark Is Rising Sequence. It is a classic written in the 1960’s, but remains a thrilling read today. I was an avid reader as a child, so I am surprised that I never read any of Susan Cooper’s books back then.

It starts with Mr and Mrs Drew and their three children, Simon, Jane and Barney arriving on the train in Cornwall. Their Great-Uncle Merry (Professor Lyon) has rented an old holiday home in Trewissick from Captain Toms, whilst he is abroad. Rufus the dog and Mrs Palk the housekeeper both come with the house. Simon, Jane and Barney discover an ancient Arthurian treasure map, written in medieval Latin, whilst exploring in the attic. But Mr and Miss Withers from the yacht in the bay who initially try to befriend the Drews are also after the treasure, along with other bad people.

Danger, decoys, burglary, chases, night time adventures, snooping and kidnapping ensue whilst the children with Great Uncle Merry’s help try to follow the quest for the grail.

Over Sea Under Stone is a fabulous book for older children and teens. A great page turner which weaves Arthurian legend into the story.

Foxes & Angels Greetings Cards review and giveaway

Disclosure.  This post is a review of a product that I received for free.  All opinions are my own.

It is always a delight when I receive a nice card with a lovely personal message, so I like to give similar to my family and close friends, either making the cards myself or taking great care choosing ones to purchase. The key criteria for me is that cards should be environmentally friendly, so I was very happy to discover Foxes & Angels, who offered to send me a free pack of cards to review. As times are tough for small businesses right now, I said that 2 cards would be sufficient.

Foxes & Angels Greetings Cards

The cards are beautifully illustrated by Besheer Abbaro, a descendant of Sir Edwin Lutyens the architect, using techniques of lino prints, drawing and painting. I am always in awe of people who can craft such lovely designs. Besheer is very talented like my brother-in-law, who does traditional wood block printing.

It was particularly poignant to receive the Alexandra Palace scene, as that is one of the venues where my mum used to exhibit and teach at craft shows. She used to make so many different types of cards – cross-stitch, iris folding, quilling, tea bag folding to name but a few. I’m sure I got my own love of craft from her.

Foxes & Angels Alexandra Place Christmas Card

These cards are blank inside and measure approximately 18cm by 13cm, so lots of space for your message. The cards are printed on good quality FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified card, as they have been unable to source suitable recycled card to showcase the lovely images but they are still pursuing this. And the envelopes are brown kraft recycled paper. They offer a choice of protective recycled cellophane bags which are made from corn starch or small paper card clasps when you purchase online. The clasps are a peelable label. Alternatively you may opt for neither. I was pleased to see that the external postal packaging also looked recycled and noted the use of paper tape. Their website states that they are always seeking to reduce their carbon footprint where possible.

Foxes & Angels Christmas Card

As well as Christmas cards, the range encompasses birthday, new baby, new home, thinking of you, music exam and everyday cards.

In addition to their own online shop, the cards are also sold via a selection of independent retailers. I think it would be useful to the consumers who purchase the cards via these other stockists, if there were some indication that the bags are biodegradable cellophane and more importantly, how to dispose of them. Perhaps this information could be incorporated onto the reverse of the cards.

It would also be great to see more information on the website regarding estimates of how long the biodegradable recycled cellophane bags take to degrade and whether they are suitable for home or industrial composting.

Foxes & Angels Christmas Card

The pricing of the cards is excellent value, currently most of the range is priced at £2.75 each or packs of 6 for £11. Checkout process is simple.

Do take a look at the range to see all the other great designs. They have a great vintage retro look. And thankfully no pesky glitter or foil embellishments in sight.
