My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Kain and Izzy are twins, they’ve been sent off to boarding school by their father after Kain punched him not long after their mother died and their father married his mistress, but Tompkin’s school is hiding secrets and the twins are starting to have really weird and scary dreams.
I was honestly confused by this book, by the time I got to the end I had more questions than answers, but maybe that’s just me, I would however recommend that you try it for yourself and see what you think.

Hero High: Figure In The Flames by Mina Chara – Review by Nicky Margaret

Figure in the Flames (Hero High, #1-3)Figure in the Flames by Mina Chara
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Denial (Hero High book 1) by Mina Chara is a 3.5 star read.
This is the story of Friday Fitzsimmons who went off to hero high when she was 17, she met and spent some time with her hero Captain Fantastic, she doesn’t really have an active power so is trying to figure out how she can become a superhero.
This is my first book by this author and while it wasn’t one of my favourite books I couldn’t put the book down and read it all in one sitting.

Anger (Hero High book 2) by Mina Chara is a 3.5 star read.
Friday Fitzsimmons is still trying to figure her way around Hero High and the camera’s, the new Dr Dangerous is hell bent on finding his place as a villain and making sure Friday is in the middle of his plans. Making new friends along the way Friday is trying to stop her anxiety worries getting in the way of her time at hero high.
There was a little more excitement in this book but it still fell a little flat for me, but when I picked up the book I didn’t put it down until I was finished.

Bargaining by Mina Chara is book 3 in the series and is a 4 star read.
This book finds Friday fighting against everyone, not sure who is on the side of good or bad, her friendship with Jake is suffering and she’s getting closer to Ashley, but everyone has secrets, can Friday save the day without getting hurt?
This was a quick read and I enjoyed catching up with Friday and seeing how her superhero power would stand up against everyone else’s. The ending fell a little flat for me and I’m hoping there’s more to come.

Milo and Jill knew each other as teenagers and didn’t part on good terms, 12 years later they’re thrown together again and there’s still some animosity, but there’s also the fact that they each felt the other was the one who got away. I loved reading the back story and seeing how they get to where they are now. This book was well written and the characters were well developed, this is a new author to me and I look forward to reading more from her.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

And the river runs deep (The Coldcase murder mystery of Leah Marcus) by A.J Ullman.
This novel was written as true crime story so there was lots of information given but for me there was just too much information it made the book hard to read for me and I kept wanting to skip lots of the book, I didn’t really like the style of writing and all in the book just wasn’t for me at all, but others may find it enjoyable.
