Morrighan by Mary Pearson is my Throwback Thursday choice this week. An audiobook narrated by Julia Whelan and MacLeod Andrews, two of my favourites, and released in 2016.
Although this is a prequel it can be read as a standalone novella. I haven’t yet read any of the Remnant Chronicles so I’m not sure of the connection to the series. From what I can gather the characters in this don’t feature in the main storyline and are, perhaps, ancestors.

The Things We Learn When We’re Dead is about how small decisions can have profound and unintended consequences, but how we can sometimes get a second chance.
On the way home from a dinner party, Lorna Love steps into the path of an oncoming car. When she wakes up she is in what appears to be a hospital – but a hospital in which her nurse looks like a young Sean Connery, she is served wine for supper, and everyone avoids her questions.
Today I have a book spotlight to share, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources. Violet Souls, book one of the Evoxian Legacies, is released today on kindle.
I’d like to welcome Ricardo Alexanders as he explains the idea behind his new book…..
What if Lennon was born an Indian…
If John Lennon was born in India in 1940 with the same talent, could he still conquer the world?
This is the very question that I kept asking myself during my writing of Bollywood Invasion. Something extraordinary had to happen if the Indian (British) Invasion was to take America by storm as the world back then was not even close to be as multi-cultural as we are today.

Charlotte Rowe spent the first seven years of her life in the hands of the only parents she knew—a pair of serial killers who murdered her mother and tried to shape Charlotte in their own twisted image. If only the nightmare had ended when she was rescued.
Trina Pierce was abducted as a baby and spent her first seven years with the killer couple who murdered her mother. They wanted to ‘train’ her to be just like them. After she was rescued from the clutches of the serial killers, Abigail and Daniel Banning, her nightmare should have ended, but her father saw fit to exploit her experience, through the tabloid press and the movie industry. That, together with a weird stalker who admired the Banning’s, gave Trina the incentive to escape and detach herself from everything her life had been and had become by going to live with her grandmother.

A pampered princess is told she must marry a prince she doesn’t like, let alone love, on her nineteenth birthday. Desperate to find a way to stop this arranged marriage, she makes a bargain with her father.
Princess Faith is well aware of the circulating whispers after she turned down an offer of marriage from Prince Jaeger of Aronsite. But she was determined she would marry someone of her choosing, not be forced into a union with a man more concerned with what cloak he should wear while riding than the fate of the people in his kingdom, despite her father’s displeasure. She had counted on marrying the prince’s elder brother, Mikhail, but he has been missing since a battle with the Northerners.
Renee at It’s Book Talk began this meme as a way to share old favourites, as well as books that were published over a year ago. Not to mention those that are languishing on the to be read pile for whatever reason.
This week I’m looking back at Dead Set by Richard Kadrey, author of the Sandman Slim urban fantasy series. Dead Set is a stand alone young adult paranormal fantasy. I listened to the audiobook.
