More marvellous plaudits

I’m thrilled to say that Day 2 of the Game of Crones blog tour has produced a crop of great feedback.

Radzy Writes and Reviews commented: “Every short story in this collection has that out of the box twist, and never once reaches a weird, unrealistic place. I found the stories satisfying and uplifting when I didn’t realise.

Fans of great endings will be very happy with this book, as will fans of fantasy, medieval, steampunk, and the like. It ticks all the boxes for me, and I’ll be checking out more of Raven’s work ASAP.”

Jazzy Book Reviews wrote: “I think my favorite story out of them all was the one involving the scarecrow. That one was pretty horrifying, but that might be because I have a thing with scarecrows. They’re ridiculously creepy.

All of the stories were entertaining and amusing, though. I enjoyed that most, if not all, had a revenge aspect to them. Never cross a witch, that’s for sure.

If you’re a fan of short stories, horror, witches, or all of the above, then you’ll want to grab a copy of Game of Crones. I’d recommend it. 4 stars!”

And Mai’s Musings reported: “Game of Crones is filled with vivid imagery, with the author painting such a clear image of the landscape surrounding each story that you could actually feel that you were there. Achieving this at the same time as creating characters that you really cared about in each story in so few words is a true talent, and one that I wished I possessed.

“Game of Crones is a book that I would definitely recommend both to people who wouldn’t normally read short stories, and also to those who normally avoid the creepier books. This book is a great introduction to both, and is a great showcase of the author’s writing skills.”

 

Wow – many sincere thanks to the reviewers who took the time to give their thoughts on the collection. I really appreciate it. More reviews tomorrow…

Blog tour off to a smashing start

Each story is unique in its own way and has various twists at the end that you might not see coming!

My two personal favorites were Suggestion of Evil and Prince Charming. They were two very different stories and I especially liked the ending of Prince Charming.” story is unique in its own way and has varying twists at the end that you may not see coming!  My two personal favorites were Suggestion of Evil and Prince Charming.

And Bookwormforkids, blogspot.com wrote: “Short, dark and sweet, these tales take on all sorts of witchcraft and sorcery in a way which sometimes leaves chills, food for thought or simply a thrill. 

The tales are nicely written, each one drawing into its very own setting and characters. It was impossible to guess where each one would lead, thanks to the twists and turns.

I recommend this to fans of witchcraft, sinister twists, and spells which stay with you long after you close those pages.”

 

Thanks for such a fabulous verdict.

If you enjoy your ‘fairy tales’ with a macabre twist to them then Game of Crones is for you!
