Review: Pentacle by William Meikle
Pentacle - William Meikle

Pentacle by William Meikle is one of the books in the Sigils and Totems series, but it can be read as a stand alone. There is something eerie about Edinburgh house. A creature, perhaps?

Plot 4/5: Interesting plot

Characters 4/5: The characters were fleshed out, and interesting.

World building 4/5: Everything happened within Edinburgh house.

Pacing 4/5: A little slower than some of the author's other books.

Writing 5/5: William Meikle's writing is always good.

Overall 4.2

I won this book in a giveaway.

Review: The Hole by William Meikle
The Hole - William Meikle

The Hole by William Meikle is a story about a peculiar hum which brings headaches and nosebleeds to a small, country town.

Plot 5/5: A very interesting plot which I have never read about.

Characters 5/5: The author doesn't give a whole lot of descriptions as to what his characters may be like, but he definitely brings them to life.

World building 5/5: Again, not a lot of descriptions, but you feel as though you are in the world his books are set in.

Pacing 5/5: Steady pace with bursts of action.

Writing 5/5: Great writing, and hardly any typos.

Overall 5/5

William Meikle is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. With his writing style and his imagination, I know I will not be disappointed. 

I won this book in a giveaway.

Ramskull by William Meikle
Ramskull - William Meikle

It started out as a simple nuisance call...a bit of sheep worrying according to a cantankerous old farmer on the remote island of Leita. For Sergeant Dave Wilkes, it was a chance to get out from under some excess paperwork, nothing more. Along with an over eager young constable, he heads out to the island, expecting no more than a day out of the office.

He's going to wish he never left the mainland.

What they find is a community abandoned....signs of horrific violence, some of which disappears in the blink of an eye. When they discover they have been cut off from any and all assistance, or even leaving the island, Sergeant Wilkes sets out to solve the mystery....only to discover that an ancient evil, long forgotten....a force twice thought laid to rest centuries before by one familiar with the powers of darkness, has broken loose once more. An entity that calls out to the unwary, with a power that can't be denied or stopped by bell, book, candle or firearm....a bloodthirsty horror that only Sergeant Wilkes stands against in it's bid to leave Leita and contaminate the entire world.

Grand atmospheric horror with a fine sense of place from Scotland's greatest horror author.

Highly recommended.

Infestation by William Meikle
Infestation - William Meikle

A group of soldiers is sent to investigate reports of Russians drilling in cold, Canadian waters. Once the troop arrives though, nary a Russian can be found and their ship shows signs of a bloody battle. What were the Russians doing and where are they now? You'll have to read this novella to find out!

 

Infestation is fast paced creature-feature containing all that you would hope for in such a read. There's not a real lot of character development, or descriptions of scenery, and that's fine with me. There's a lot of bloody battles where you're rooting for the troop to win and I liked that too-it's what I look for in this type of book.

 

The one thing I didn't care for was the ending. It just stopped! I'm all for the gut punch ending, but this wasn't that. It just stopped. I just discovered there is a sequel to this and I most likely will read it, when I get over being mad about this ending!

 

Recommended for fans of creature-features!
