Relics and Curiosities
The Midnight Eye Files: The Skin Game - William Meikle

 

A manky old belt made of fur can change a person into a werewolf.

 

We never really find out how or why except the belt was made in the 1400's? by a magician or alchemist.

 

The story takes us from Glasgow, Scotland to a remote ranch in Novia Scotia.

 

Not too heavy, though the main character tries too hard to sound like one the famous detectives from the old black and white movies and dime store stories, like from the Maltese Falcon.  He doesn't quite pull it off.

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.
