Book Review: Dissolution (Matthew Shardlake #1) by C.J. Sansom

That said, Dissolution reminded me an awful lot of The Name of The Rose. Unfortunately though, The Name of The Rose was a lot better. I have nothing against C.J. Sansom’s writing style or narrative, but it pales in comparison to this classic. In the abbey of Scarnsea, a commissioner sent by Cromwell himself, who was evaluating the monestary, was found murdered. Shardlake and his assistant travel to the abbey to find the identity of the murderer and solve the crime. But as soon as they arrive in Scarnsea, it’s obvious that they’re the target of a menacing presence who wouldn’t back away from hurting them as well. Secrets are buried deep inside the monestary, and Shardlake needs to find them before they find him.

Book Review: Beneath The Shadows by Sara Foster

If you’re as much of a fan of gothic horror as I am, then the synopsis of Beneath The Shadows probably intrigues you more than you’d like to admit. It was the synopsis that first drew me in for this story, but it definitely didn’t dissapoint. It’s a bit less gothic than I would’ve liked, but it does its best to be a gothic horror with a modern twist, and it succeeds in that department. The only problem? To me, it read more like women’s fiction meets mystery. Or even a cozy mystery of sorts. There were creepy, ghostly elements, but they were either quickly dismissed or offered little to nothing to the story. This could’ve been handled differently, better even, by living up to its genre and giving the reader true gothic horror.

Book Review: Abandoned (Smoky Barrett #4) by Cody McFadyen

I purchased Abandoned at a booksale last year for the very low price of $1. The best dollar ever spent, if you ask me. Sure, I wouldn’t rate this book a five star, but it was a decent, satisfactory read that kept me chilled the entire time. I had to keep on turning pages to find out what would happen next to the main characters, and if that happens, it’s always a great sign.
