What the hell did I just read?

Anyway, Stuart, the author wrote to me and was like- “I can’t tell you much about the story so I don’t give anything away.”

So I thought- yes, this is some good intrigue and makes the book sticky… you know, sticky.. as in you’ll want to see what it’s about or it’ll annoy you until the end of days and a year!

Stuart offered to send me a copy and I really liked the cover so I said- I like me a bit of madness, went to Amazon and bought a copy. I like to give back to soci

"Stuart Park clearly tells us in his author bit at the end that he is not an author. You know what I say to that? You are a liar sir!"

It isn’t very often that a book (particularly a novella) leaves me gazumped with what to say about it, but Stuart Park has done that here with ‘Marked’ – his debut offering through the Sinister Horror Company.
‘Marked’ is certainly a dark read. It follows a couple who lose their daughter whilst at the beach one day. Their journey sees them deal with the loss in very different ways. Mark (the father) seems to keep himself occupied with his work and his daughter Kate, but a chance meeting with a sa

I received this book to give an honest review.
So I am trying to really think on how to write this review without giving away so much.
So this book started off pretty powerful. We are thrown into the life of Mark and his family. When his daughter goes missing this starts his wife on a down whirl spiral. We fast forward quite a few years and we see the affects of not having their daughter with them. It seems to kind of take a toll on Mark's wife Kim. As the s

Well, this book is about a kidnapping, or maybe not...
It is about a 'company' which use the force (very hard) to get information (not sure what information), or maybe not...
It is about a guy who write a book regarding what is going to happen, or maybe not...
It is an erotic book with sexual affairs, or maybe not...
It is about a virus, or maybe not...
It is about a turtle, a card game
About black magic, movements of planets and their consequences, blooding people, masochism, real time television...

Marked follows a family who are dealing with the unsolved disappearance of their daughter 20 years ago. As the story unfolds the planet Venus and her sister conclude a 3,000 year cycle and this is woven into the plot.

To be honest I didn’t really enjoy this book. It started off well, explaining the events that led to Mark and Kim’s daughter’s disappearance and then how they both dealt with the loss in their different

Stuart is not an author.

Then something happened.
Following a knee operation he found himself incapacitated for a spell. Overnight he was immobile and learnt a keen lesson in loss. This new sense of frustration didn't sit well with him. Reviewing his then limited options he decided to vent by writing. Writing had always been on his bucket list and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity.
