    A rather late review, but, as they say, better late than never. However, never may have been better for this book!! I'm the kind of person who has to read a book to the end, no matter how bad, but this book was a real struggle.

    This book is about a young Englishman who inherits a large amount of money, so leave University in England in 1817 and travelled to Venezuela to fight for liberty. It follows his travels through America and Australia and back to the UK.

    This story begins in Italy in 1492, and follows the story of 5-year old Mura, daughter of a Spanish book seller, through the events of her life until adulthood.

    It is set against the backdrop of the Medici era.

    The front cover described this book as 'Welcome to MI5 for wizards' and generally that's the whole premise of it. A secret British government agency that has a staff with supernatural powers.

    Very entertaining and a fairly original premise. I did start to get a little confused by the number of characters and actually why some were even there ( the sister for one) and to be honest the book could have been 3/4 of the length it was as it had a plot that kind of went on and on but really didn't need to.

    This book was an excellent read. It was gripping from the beginning, and included all the twists and turns that you'd expect from a modern thriller.

    It was well written whilst being easy to read.

    This is book is a must for all lovers of a good thriller! The only criticism ...

    This is my first attempt at a book review on here so bear with me until I get the hang of what on earth I am doing.

    I read Sticks and Stones by KJ Larsen and on the whole it was just OK. The plot surrounds a private investigator called Cat Deluca who runs the Pants on Fire Detective Agency and gets drawn into a murder enquiry inadvertently.

    The book is set in Chicago but I must confess I kept forgetting that as it seemed to be a better fit to set in New York. The story was rather formulaic and unoriginal, there we one too many male characters that we not essential to the story that kind of confused me trying to keep track of who was what and where they were!
