Crossings by Ashley Capes
Crossings - Ashley Capes



In the Australian bush, wildlife ranger Lisa Thomas must uncover the truth behind a giant white kangaroo and the strange deaths connected to it, while dealing with the return of her abusive ex, Ben, whose rage is quickly growing out of control.





When Ashley Capes asked if I wanted to read another one of his books, I jumped at the chance. It's been a year since I've started reading his books, and to say that I'm obsessed with his work is a understatement. 


Crossings is a story of a wildlife ranger, Lisa Thomas, and her journey to uncover the mysterious killings of wildlife animals right at her door step. And to top if off, a strange giant white kangaroo that she isn't sure if it's real or not.


Lisa deals with a lot of serious issues, from the return of her abusive ex, to her father suffering from amnesia. Nothing seems to be going smoothly for her, but instead of backing down in a corner she continues to fight on.

I enjoyed reading Ashley Capes take on these topics, not a lot of authors can do this and be good at it.


The great thing about Ashley Capes story telling is  even though it has a fantasy element to it, it doesn't feel like it. It's not over the top or in your face. By doing this it becomes more realistic.


There are so many things thar I love about this book, but knowing me whatever I say I'm just going to be spoiling it for you. So do yourself a favour and pick this book up, you will not be dissapointed.

Crossings is dark, creepy and brilliant. Can not wait to read more of Ashley Capes.

A Whisper Of Leaves by Ashley Capes
A Whisper of Leaves - Ashley Capes


When ESL teacher Riko finds an old journal buried in the forests beneath Mt Fuji, a malevolent, untraceable force begins to threaten her at every turn.

But is it all in her head?

The more she studies the journal for answers, the more questions she uncovers. Worse, no-one takes her fears seriously and her best lead appears to be a belligerent old man, whose only care in the world is raking leaves deep in the forest.

With her grip on reality shaken and friendships strained to breaking point, Riko has to discover the truth about the journal in order to put ghosts of the past to rest, as strange events turn deadly.





Yet another brilliant book by Ashley Capes. This book was everything and more. I was completely engrossed in this book that it took me seven straight hours (breaks cause of house duties), to finish it. 


Set in Japan, a first for me as I've shockingly never read a book set in this country, we follow a young woman whose life has turned upside down. Falsly accused of inappropriate behaviour with a student, she is set out to make things right. What she doesn't realize is a simple hike will make her life even crazier with a mysterious journal. 


A Whisper of Leaves is a novella , and for those who don't know what that is, its basically a short story. Usually I'm not a huge fan of novella's as they always rush a story just to get to either the point or the end. A Whisper of Leaves is not that, I'm happy to say this story was well paced. Not slow but definitely not fast either. 

Actually I didn't want it to end it was that good. Nail biting, edge of my seat rollercoaster ride of ghosts, friendship and dealing with, well, difficult people. 


I unfortunately did have problems with the pronunciation of people's names and locations, but this didn't hinder me in the slightest. In all honesty, I have trouble with English words too. 


There is so much more I want to talk about, but unfortunately I don't want to give away any spoilers. Just pick this book up and read it, you will not be dissapointed.
