Very intriguing and well written

Hounds of AutumnHounds of Autumn by Heather Blackwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ms Blackwood has created a book to keep you intrigued and reading from the beginning to the end.

The story is well developed with enough description to allow you to see the story, but not bog you down. Her description of the mechanical engineering and operations of the different machines are just enough to paint the picture without becoming overly technical. It made me want a mechanical cat like she has claws and all.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good mystery, and a strong heroine. I would love to read many more books by Ms Blackwood.

Blurb on the book:

It is 1890, and the windswept moors hold dark secrets. Chloe Sullivan is an amateur inventor whose holiday takes a dark turn when her friend and colleague, one of the few female mechanical experts in the British Empire, is murdered.

A black mechanical hound roams the moors, but could it have killed a woman? And what secrets are concealed within the dark family manor?

Accompanied by her naturalist husband and her clockwork cat, Chloe is determined to see her friend’s killer found.

But some secrets have a terrible cost.

Jewel of Shaylar (Kingdoms of Chandra, #1)Jewel of Shaylar by Laura Eno
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Laura has done it again. In 'Jewel of Shaylar', she has created a new world of magic and magical creatures. The story is very well done, with well developed characters. Make sure you have plenty of time to read because you will not want to put this book down until the end...and not even then. The only negative thing I could say is I wanted to read the next book in the series now. I will be waiting with baited breath for the next installment of this fascinating story. If you haven't gotten the book yet... what are you waiting for. Buy it and join the adventure.
