not for me.
The Sand Dweller - Molly Neely
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This review will be short, and for that I'm sorry. But I am struggling to word what I need to say about this book. I'm not entirely sure what I think, to be honest, about this book. There is a lot of flipping between the past and present, and while each change is headed, there is much missing from each flip. I felt that more could have been made of the NOW, rather than the past. It's well written from a host of different points of view, and I did like that. I didn't spot any spelling or editing errors. I just....*insert sigh*... don't see what the whole point of the story was. It's been left opened ended, maybe for another book, I don't know, it just....*insert ARGH!!!!!* ....I can't word it. I gave it three stars, because we do get to here from everyone, and I did finish it. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

oh.my.freaking.god!!
A Deadly Sin - Tracie Podger
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
Again, jumping straight in. And again, struggling to word what I need to say, so bare with me, ok?? Also, I'm writing this review on the back of writing the review for Gabriel. So if I repeat myself, I'm sorry.
 
This book is told from two people's point of view, both in the first. Mich, as the main character, tells what's going on, but also we get the bad guy. And boy is he bad! I love getting the bad guys, but this one is just a little too creepy for me. Or I thought so, til he told me more, about what he was doing and more importantly WHY. Yes, it is not an easy thing to read, but you understand him more, as time goes on. Not sure if understand him is the right phase though, cos that makes me one sick puppy if I can understand WHY he does what he does! But do you follow?? Things make more sense as to the why, when his past begins to reveal itself.
 
I loved the seamless melding of Gabriel's story into this one. LOVED how it all started to come together. LOVED how much I did not see coming at me, not at all.
 
I read this almost back to back to Gabriel. While I didn't think you NEED to read Gabriel first, if you like thriller, especially ones with some very twisted minds, some very deep rooted beliefs, you should read Gabriel first. I would, really I would. Especially as Gabriel plays a much bigger part in the next book.
 
While looking forward to it isn't quite the right word, I hope to read the next one, A Deadly Mission. I want to see just how far Mich and Gabriel will go to rid the world of this group of people who have destroyed so many lives.
 
A very VERY different read to my usual romances, but crime/thriller was my go-to, (that and some good old horror!) pre-kindle days and I really did enjoy getting back to my roots.
 
Staying up way past your bedtime, full of a cold, it can only get...

so bloody good!!
Gabriel - Tracie Podger
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted a copy of this book.
 
Jumping straight in!
 
Oh.
My.
Freaking.
God!!!!
I just...I...Oh this is so hard to write!
 
*deep breath, you can do this! Its only a review!**
 
I wasn't entirely sure what to expect from this book, other than it was a thriller, but I didn't expect this!
 
It's told entirely (here you go, you know what I'm gonna say, right??) from Gabriel's point of view, in the first person, and I freaking LOVED IT!! (HA!!) This book is just so bloody good!
 
Gabriel's wife was killed while his daughter was in the bathroom. The case went cold and Gabriel and his daughter, Taylor, are left hanging. But then things start happening, weird, odd things, people turning up, shoving folders at him. And as the story unfolds, Gabriel realises how little he knew of his wife's background.
 
Without giving anything away, Gabriel opens a can of freaking big ass snakes, let alone worms, and the level of betrayal is so high, I did NOT see that coming.
 
Gabriel gets his revenge, some closure but assured, he will always be looking over his shoulder.
 
Totally blew me away.
 
First I've read of Podger, I have A Deadly Sin to read next. I'm told they are kind of linked, but we'll see how.
 
5 full stars

FREAKING AMAZING BOOK!!!
The Devil's Daughter - Katee Robert
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
OK!
 
SO!
 
You know how..... Nope, no, not right at all!!
 
Deep breath, and lets try that again, shall we??
 
You know how, sometimes, when you are reading a book, thoroughly enjoying said book, you got it all worked out?? You picked up the clues, and put the whodunnit together waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay before it was revealed in the book??
 
And then.....AND THEN!!!
 
THEN you get to 91%, about 20 minutes left in the book and you got it so very VERY wrong!!! I mean, I was really REALLY sure whodunnit, and I was waiting to see how Eden managed to get away, and then....AND THEN!!!
 
AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! I can't word this right!! I was way off base, totally shocked by that revelation, and I did NOT see that coming. I freaking loved that!!! I loved that even Eden did not see that one coming!
 
I'm sorry. Its taken me three days to come down enough to write this review and its not really making any sense but I really cannot word how much I LOVED this book!
 
It's dark, its so very deadly, and devious. It has love too, for Eden and Zach, Sheriff in Clear Springs where Eden's mother has her cult. Where the girls are going missing from. Where Eden has to return to.
 
This is the first book of Katee Robert's I've read. I hope it's not the last. This book is billed as Hidden Sins #1. I so really REALLY need to read the next one!
 
Because it took me three days to write this, because I screeched at work (where I was reading when I got to THAT bit) because...because...because....
 
5 stars.
 
(I am sorry this review isn't up to my usual standards, but I really did struggle to word how I felt other than I FREAKING LOVED IT!!!)
