WWW Wednesday | 25th November 2020

Happy Wednesday, a little late in the day today. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers posting about “WWW Wednesday” and it looks like a really easy and fun way to let everyone know what you are currently reading and what you are going to read next!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Taking on a World of Words, where you just answer three questions:

What book(s) are you currently reading?

What book(s) have you recently finished?

What book(s) are you reading next?


What am I Currently Reading

I have just started reading “The Smile of the Wolf” by Tim Leach. I can’t give any opinions yet as I only began it today. It was highly recommended to me by Terry Tyler, an author whose books I enjoy, so hopefully I will like it as much as she did!

Synopsis

SUNDAY TIMES HISTORICAL NOVEL OF THE YEAR. 

Tenth-century Iceland. In the midwinter darkness, on the lifeless black soils of a newly settled land, two friends kill a man. Kjaran, an itinerant storyteller, and Gunnar, a once-feared warrior, must make a choice: conceal the deed or confess to it and pay the blood price to the dead man’s brothers

For the right reasons, they make the wrong choice. 

Kjaran and Gunnar’s fateful decision will leave them fighting for their lives, fighting to retain their humanity as Iceland’s unyielding code of honour ignites a remorseless blood feud that will consume all it touches. 

Smile of the Wolf bares its fangs from the first page. Like a medieval tapestry, the storytelling is rich with imagery. Readers will be lured spellbound into this lyrical and evocative Icelandic saga. It deserves huge successDAVID GILMAN.

What have I recently finished?

I just finished The Gatewatch by Joshua Gillingham. I thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming tale of loyal companions and their troll-hunting adventures. My review of this book can be read here.

Synopsis

Torin Ten-Trees and his closest companions, Bryn and Grimsa, set out to join The Gatewatch and become trollhunters. When a troupe of meddling dwarves throws them off course they are captured by trolls and taken as prisoners to a secret gathering deep underground. There they learn that an ancient giant has crowned himself king of the trolls and plans to utterly destroy The Gatewatch. Their perilous journey back to the land of sun and stars will stretch their strength to the limit, strain their wits, and demand an unspeakable sacrifice. But will it be enough to defeat the Troll King? 

The Gatewatch is an epic troll-hunting adventure inspired by the Norse Myths and the Icelandic Sagas.

What am I reading next?

After “The Smile of the Wolf” I will be reading either “The Chef Who Made Onions Cry” by Chilli Kippen, or “The Visitor” the latest mystery by Terry Tyler, both of which I am going to read and review in December, I just haven’t decided which order to read them in yet.

The Chef Who Made Onions Cry by Chilli Kippen

Synopsis

As on all cruise ships, the most important person on board the Pacific Belle, apart from the Captain is the Master Chef. It is the quality and yes indeed the quantity of food that makes or breaks a cruise.

The reader is introduced to Master Chef Armand Barrique – twice Michelin starred – dreamt recipes, who is not only a Master Chef but also a man of sensitivity and devoted to his trainee expert truffle-hunter pig. Chef is also central to the plot and his planning and delivery of the spectacular Versailles dinner is a highlight, not only for the cruise guests, but also for the reader.

Our old friend Alexander Pushkin Goldfarb continues his run of luck in the ship’s casino as he observes the foibles of his fellow passengers while new characters such as Major Barbara Cock, a retired army psychiatrist and now assassin for hire, introduce elements of intrigue and revenge and somewhat paradoxically humour and sympathy for her cause.

As in her previous novel, as the plot twists and turns in Ms Kippen’s hilarious and deliberately absurd trademark style, she tackles another important social issue and delivers a powerful blow to the proponents of Live Animal Transportation. The marked contrast of sober descriptions of this cruel practice brings home the message that it must be stopped! Now!

The Visitor by Terry Tyler

Description

In 2024, a mystery virus ravages the entire world. ‘Bat Fever’ is highly contagious and one hundred per cent lethal. 

A cottage tucked away in an isolated Norfolk village seems like the ideal place to sit out a catastrophic pandemic, but some residents of Hincham resent the arrival of Jack, Sarah and their friends, while others want to know too much about them.

What the villagers don’t know is that beneath Sarah’s cottage is a fully-stocked, luxury survival bunker. A post-apocalyptic ‘des res’.  

Hincham isolates itself from the rest of the country, but the deaths continue―and not from the virus. There’s a killer on the loose, but is it a member of the much-depleted community, or somebody from outside? Paranoia is rife, as friend suspects friend, and everybody suspects the newcomers.

Most terrifying of all is that nobody knows who’s next on the list…

The Visitor is Terry Tyler’s twenty-second Amazon publication, and is set in the same world as her Project Renova series, while being a completely separate, stand-alone novel.
