I loved this. It's so creepy and chilling, and packed full of gripping suspense.

Something sinister is happening to young women out on the remote Shetland Islands. Ancient island legends appear to be coming true in the most horrifying of ways, leading the reader into a tension filled page turner.

As Tora (our heroine) begins to uncover disturbing evidence and folklore, everyone falls under suspicion. Many theories are formed, and with one shocking twist after another, my head was soon spinning. I hated having to put it down, but at times I had to in order to digest and regroup.

This story is utterly compelling, and although it's only January 6th, I know I've already found one of my favourite new-to-me authors of the year!

Carol Kerry-green Ah, we're both reading a Bolton novel. I'm reading Now You See Me.

Oooh, hope you like it as much as I did. I think NYSM is Bolton's best.


Anna Hope you're enjoying Now You See Me Carol; I'm LOVING Sacrifice. I'm half way through, and am creeped out, suspecting everyone and totally enthralled!

Bolton will do that to you :D

Carol Kerry-green Sounds great Anna, will definitely lookout for that one. NYSM was excellent, right page turner to the end.


Anna Great to see your review and star rating for Now You See Me Carol, can't wait to read it. It's too pricey right now though, so my next SJB will be Blood Harvest.

Hannah Whew! Thank goodness Bolton satisfied.

She's good, isn't she - I was suspecting everyone before the story's end.

If you enjoy atmospheric page turners, she's a good one.
