This is a very brave look at exactly what it takes and the commitment required to be able to ‘kick the habit’, in a world where enjoying a drink, or three, is normal. There is no medical advice, expert theories, homilies or other such support information in the pages, just one woman’s struggle with and efforts to live her life free from alcohol, which makes this a very powerful, reflective look at how she and we, by association in the greater more of things, choose to live our life.

To put it bluntly this is a book that gamers will love as it is action packed, fast moving, contains a lot of detail on guns, and small arms, ammo, fast chases, destruction and death.
Don’t let this put you off because once you get past all of that the plot is really very good.

Gregory once again has skilfully recreated Tudor England through the pages of what can almost be read as a diary of Margaret Pole as she struggles, not just for survival but for her beliefs and allegiances in a time when to trust was to die. Having risen to a place of some considerable power within the Court, the cold hand of betrayal reaches out not just to Margaret but to those she loves and holds dear.

(how a ship load of convicts survived the wreck of the “Hive” to make a new life in Australia.)
This is an intensely researched history of early Australian settlement, focussing on a group of Irish convicts. The 250 Irish prisoners, who were transported to New South Wales in 1835, were shipwrecked off the coast of Booderee National Park, New South Wales. All the convicts survived, and were escorted to the Colony by Aboriginal people.
Although this is billed as the first book in a Fantasy Series for 7-12 year olds, it’s a great read for anyone who loves Fantasy Sci-Fi, as it holds the interest right up until the final word, something that is not always achievable and while definitely Fantasy, could almost be believable. Well almost!
