It's a shame that frank muller is unable to continue reading for us. I hope his recovery is progressing.
Wolves of the calla continues to expand on the lives of the travellers and again links other King novels with the dark tower. It is full of all the King delights - good versus evil, the shoot out, the heroes. What's not to like?

Another richly imagined world full of memorable characters that blur the boundaries between good and evil. This is the basis of all Stephen King stories. It makes you ponder the grey areas of ethical decisions and the hold that Ka seems to have on all of us. A must read for the whole of Roland's story.

Such a lot is answered in this story and such a lot remains. Who would have thought of psychotic machinery but Stephen King. By far The Dark Tower is his finest epic work and I look forward to reading the next instalment.

In an apocalypse, there is definitely a beginning where mistakes are made and the seeds of evil are allowed to sprout and take shape. However, an end is not so certain. Once an apocalypse occurs, not even death is certain. Sometimes, death is only the beginning.

There are millions of stories. Some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of these things as he introduces his indomitable ‘piano man’ grandfather; his single mother, a beautiful, struggling singer; and every day saints and sinners who will change the course of Jonah’s life. Welcome to The City, a place where enchantment and malice entwine, and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.

The book jacket blurb does not do this story justice. An unexpected social lesson as well as a thrilling journey through the life of the main character Jonah. Where else could you get an overview of some of the last great musicians as well as an exciting ride through the city. Just wish it had of had some of that great music throughout the story. 10 out of 10 again Mr Koontz!

It has been 20 years since the end of the war. The dictatorial Augurs, once thought of almost as gods, were overthrown and wiped out during the conflict, their much-feared powers mysteriously failing them. Those who had ruled under them, men and women with a lesser ability known as the Gift, avoided the Augurs' fate only by submitting themselves to the rebellion's Four Tenets.

A fabulous debut novel for James Islington! A new saga of magic and intrigue to rival all out there. Boy heroes and girl heroes enough to spare. A bit of romance a bit of sword fighting, lots of magic and conspiracies abound everywhere. Can't wait for the next one!

What a great way to explore the thoughts and feelings of alone-ness or uniqueness. Here is a man, virtually the last man on earth, facing the prospect of a life alone surviving against all odds, growing fond of the very creatures that want him dead. More than meets the expectation of this reader.

This is a delightful story. At times it is dark but always, like true fairy tale, the hero will win out! There is original music between chapters that helps capture the magic. Almost a coming of age story where all characters have something to learn and grow from and where the light at the end of the tunnel is often very small. A children's book for grown ups. If I had a choice I'd always be a unicorn if I could!

Another angst ridden instalment of the on again off again world of Jace and Clarissa as they battle the demon world. I love the way other characters are enlarged and embroidered as the story unfolds and can't wait to see what Cassandra has in store for us as she awakens the evil Sebastian.
The story is read well although sometimes I crave for some more emotion. At times the readers are a little flat.
