Rose Reviews ‘Sealskin’

I absolutely love all the old folktales and my favourites of all are the Selkie folk the seals who can come upon the land at certain times of the year, shed their skin and become human.

This story was no exception with beautiful words woven throughout the pages. However, it does touch on some rather upsetting subjects and will most certainly pull on the heartstrings of those sensitive souls.

Well worth checking out.

I give it a 3 Rose Rating

2017 Book 22 ‘Synthesis Pioneer’

Oh my goodness I cannot believe how long I have left posting my Goodreads Challenge books for 2017. So now I have another BIG Challenge to post all the ones I have read so far this year. It is October, almost November and I am currently reading Book 77. So you can see how far behind I am. Wish me luck.

‘Synthesis : Pioneer’

(A short-story prequel to Synthesis:Weave)

Rose Reviews ‘Synthesis : Pioneer’

This is a very short SciFi story about 30 minutes of reading in which we get an introduction to ‘The Synthesis Series’, and a brief insight into the very varied crew on board the ‘Fluorescent Lightingale’.

This tale centres around the linguist aboard who goes by the name of Calendula a talented young woman who uses all her senses. I particularly like how the author describes what she smells and hears upon boarding the ship.

I really do not wish to say more otherwise the story may be spoiled, but I do know that I will be moving the main story up my reading list.

I give it a 3 Rose Rating

(This is my top review rating it means I loved it or it was a real page-turner)
