New Reviews: Egeland, Gregorio, MacBride, McDermid, Millar, Rankin, Smith

There are two competitions running in September. One is for 2 children's adventure-thriller books by Andy Briggs and is open to the UK, and the other is for A Visible Darkness by Michael Gregorio (reviewed below) which is open world-wide. Details on how to enter can be found on the competition page.

Here are this week's reviews:
Amanda Gillies reviews The Guardians of the Covenant by Tom Egeland concluding with "[it] should keep you hooked from cover to cover";

Norman Price reviews this month's competition prize, A Visible Darkness by Michael Gregorio;

Paul Blackburn reviews the futuristic crime novel Halfhead by Stuart B MacBride;

Maxine Clarke reviews the newest in the Tony Hill series by Val McDermid - Fever of the Bone - beginning her review by writing that "it is written with multi award-winning Val McDermid's usual professionalism, dependability, style and apparent effortlessness";

Michelle Peckham reviews Sam Millar's The Dark Place;

Pat Austin has no complaints about Ian Rankin's The Complaints

and I recently reviewed (on this blog), the audio book version of The Miracle at Speedy Motors by Alexander McCall Smith.
Previous reviews can be found in the review archive and forthcoming titles can be found here.
