4.5 Stars for story, 3.5 for editing
As you may know, I have been meeting a lot of indie and small publishing house authors this year. Thanks to my friend Sarah Buhrman, the Author Goddess herself, I have been introduced to many talented storytellers. One of those authors is Rebekah Dodson. She’s got a way with telling a story that grabs you without being too intense. Rebekah’s had several novellas and novels published over the last couple of years. She’s rather prolific. Her Curse of Lanval series is an example of current works. She’s put out three novellas so far in that series and the final chapter is due out later this year. Continue reading
Here’s the short review I wrote for The Red Hill on Goodreads. Below that you will find a more thorough review.
The Red Hill by David Penny
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoy reading a good mystery now and again. Reading a mystery in an historical setting is a real pleasure, especially when the author can bring that setting to life in their book. David Penny managed to do that. Crossing the lines of religion and culture, Penny takes you through a thrilling ride. Exploring the darker aspects of politics in Moorish Spain around the time of Ferdinand and Isabela, Penny’s characters of Thomas and Jorge learn a lot more about life than either one ever wanted to know. With twists and turns that will leave you wondering until the end who-done-it. I’m looking forward to reading other Thomas Berrington stories.
