As the ravens gather and darkness descends, the time is drawing near for history to repeat itself… Ravens Gathering is a gripping thriller, interwoven with horror and fantasy, that demonstrates how you should never take things at face value.

The above is an edited snapshot taken from the Amazon(UK) book listing. “Interwoven with horror” sounded right up my street, so I grabbed a copy there and then. The reason for the delay in producing this spotlight is, partially, down to having to read the book first (apologies Graeme; for the delay that is, not for having to read the book!).

When I contacted the author about doing this, he kindly sent me a press pack with a great deal of information that makes these easy to write. Frankly, most of it is taken from such press packs; the images, bios and book blurbs, although often I add review links if I find them.

I tend to spotlight rather than review to help authors promote their work; in most cases I will hunt out reviews on either Amazon, GoodReads or blogs to make sure the book is well accepted by readers. While I do try and read the books, time is not always my friend and my TBR pile is large. If reviews are bad, then chances are I won’t bother reading it and will be even less likely to feature it.

My first thought on receiving the author image was of a man who knew all about the frustrations of angling for carp on old estate lakes containing monsters. I rather think that was the setting and wry smile.

On reflection, it has nothing to do with angling and a great deal to do with monsters. The smile (grimace) hides a disturbed mind brimming with twists and turns that wait to grab a reader and not let go.

Absolutely loved this book.
