Review – Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine. I’m on such a…

This was a super creepy and thrilling read. I thoroughly enjoyed it, although at times I felt it required a certain amount of suspension of disbelief. It was well paced and I was on the edge of my seat throughout most of the book and felt the resolution was satisfying. There is another book on the way, as there were some major plot points left hanging, but this didn’t detract from my enjoyment and I’m looking forward to the next book.
I keep hearing about female rage being a trend in fiction and if there is one thing I felt I needed in this book was Gwen taking more control and rage maybe playing more of a part. I’d really like for her to have a John Wick moment or 3. For me I found the power imbalance was hard to read and I wanted her more on the front foot and more in charge. So, hoping for more rage in book 2!
If you’re keen for an edge of your seat, thrilling read pick this up for sure.

Silver Silence by Nalini Singh


A great start to a new trilogy from Nalini Singh. Silver is determined to stay in Silence and carry out her duties as an emergency response coordinator. When she someone attempts to poison her and possibly do damage to the truce and Trinity Accord, Valentin steps in to assist her.   
I loved the chemistry between these two and I am more than a little smitten with Valentin. He is a total bear and I loved the secondary characters and the kids. So sweet! Silver is such a strong character, particularly in her willingness to take charge and make changes, even if she’s not sure it will end well. Between her and Valentin it was a total slow burn romance, which I really enjoy. I also thought there was plenty of great world building and I loved the setting in Russia. One character who stood out for me is Arwen. He was so intriguing and I have my fingers crossed that he gets his own book. 
A fab new start for a much loved series and I cannot wait for the next book. B+
