    Glass Town by Steven Saville is one of those genre bending books that causes you to say "I don't normally read this type of book but...." It is a blend of psychological thriller, urban fantasy and magical realism but written in a way that is so utterly fascinating that you are drawn in...

    Joshua Raines finds a letter that his grandfather had written confessing to being in love with another woman back in 1924 right before he passed away in 1994. That woman, Eleanor Raines had gone missing seventy years before that confession was written leaving a mystery that had yet to ...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. In the 1920s, Seth and Isaiah Lockwood both loved Eleanor Raines, a young actress from the East End of London. However, Eleanor mysteriously disappeared never to be seen again. Isaiah, Seth?s younger brother, could...

    This is a really interesting supernatural thriller with some killer ideas at work. The characters are well drawn, the evocation of old movie magic and modern London crime an excellent juxtaposition. It reminded me of something by Clive Barker or Ramsey Campbell, but with a uniquely Sav...

    Full review is here, on my blog. This is going to be a rather difficult book to get my thoughts together about, because it is very in depth and such a huge idea that I found it often a little confusing, especially in the beginning. It?s a lot to take in. This is a fascinating stor...

    Mystery, magic, cinema, a hint of the 1920's, hell yes. I had no expectations going into this novel so maybe I was more easily pleased than I normally am, but whatever I enjoyed this. It's a slower paced book, but no where near plodding; it just draws you in. ...

    Thanks to NetGalley and Thomas Dunne Books for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review. 2 1/2 stars I have such mixed feelings about Glass Town. It has such a unique and imaginative premise which had me so excited going into it, but the pacing was surprisingly slow and...

    When Steven Savile's Glass Town appeared on my doorstep it was my first time hearing about it; however, as soon as I read the synopsis, I decided it may be the book for me and dove right in. The Result? Glass Town has left me feeling incredibly torn. On one side I enjoyed it. I fou...
