Reaping the Dark by Gary McMahon

A streetwise getaway driver… A drug raid that ends in bloodshed… A violent criminal hell-bent on revenge… A secret order of occultists… And something summoned from the darkest depths of nightmare. Who will survive this long, dark night, and how will it change them? And what kind of horror will be born from the chaos left behind?

2012 Preview

According to the Mayan calendar we only have until 21st December 2012 until the world ends. With that in mind, and the fact that John Cusack hasn't arrived with a limousine to whisk us off to safety just yet, I suggest we spend the time together reading some great new books. I could have easily included many, many more novels on this list but these are the baker's dozen that I am currently very excited about. I have included cover images wherever I have been able to find them, click on the thumbnails Read more [...]

The Eloquent Page – 2011 in Review

2011 has been another great year for books. First off a few stats - I have managed to read eighty-two novels which works out at over six and a half books a month. After a swift and very rough calculation that works out at approximately 6,150000 words. Some were bad, some were good and some were even great. I thought it would be nice to round off this festive season with a little bit of review. Firstly, my books of the month January - December 2011. There is a mixture of new releases and others Read more [...]
