Rosie’s #Bookreview Team #RBRT #Histfic #thriller Initiated To Kill by Sharlene Almond

The latest from Rosie and team, a historical thriller this time…

Rosie Amber

Today’s team review is from E.L. Lindley, she blogs here

#RBRT Review Team

E.L. has been reading Initiated To Kill by Sharlene Almond


Initiated to Kill by Sharlene Almond is a thriller steeped in layer upon layer of conspiracies. It deals with the sinister power of the Freemasons and takes the reader on a journey through the ages.

The premise of the novel is that the Freemasons have cast a long shadow over history and still have a great deal of influence over current events. The tentacles of this sinister organisation reach into all major institutions making their position untouchable. Almond cleverly links the story of Jack the Ripper with present day crimes as they all fall under the activities of the Freemasons, whose prime goal is to cause as much chaos as possible in order to assert control in the ensuing vacuum.

Almond’s novel takes the reader to a range…

Giveaway! Signed copies of The Date!

For your chance to win a free signed copy…

fabricating fiction

Firstly, a huge thank you for all the support for my latest psychological thriller centered around Face Blindness, The Date. Since its summer release I’m thrilled that it very quickly sold in excess of 100,000 copies, was nominated for The Guardian’s ‘Not the Booker Prize’ and to now learn that it is in the top 10 biggest selling books on Apple’s iBook store this year is phenomenal, particularly since it wasn’t released until halfway through the year.

The mass market paperback doesn’t hit the shops until next Spring, but as it’s Christmas I thought I’d give away a couple of signed and dedicated copies, along with postcards and bookmarks. If you already have the ebook or have listened to the audiobook, this could make a perfect gift for a friend.

To enter please comment below with either your best or worst date.

Good luck!

Rosie’s #Bookreview of Roma Nova Alternative History Novella, CARINA by @alison_morton

From Rosie and team: this time a review of an ‘alternative history novella’.

Rosie Amber

Carina (Roma Nova #1.5)Carina by Alison Morton

4 stars

Carina is an alternative history novella. It forms part of the Roma Nova series. These books feature stories of a Roman Empire enclave which still thrives in central Europe, some hundreds of years after the traditional downfall.

Carina is the heir to one of the twelve leading Roman families, but she is also a member of the Praetorian Special Forces guard. She is sent on a mission to Quebec to bring back a person of interest. However, the operation turns sinister, and upon her return she must discover if political power struggles are involved.

This series’ strengths lie with the author’s ability to meld the historical Roman traditions of power, combat and political sabotage with modern day technology and culture. Latin still forms part of Roma Nova’s language as does much of the famed military structure of past Roman armies. But this is not…
