Book Review: Sciron by David Rashleigh

Author’s summary: How can a ghost haunt the top floor of a new building?

A murder victim’s spirit cannot escape the former railway line where he worked and was killed. Other victims of the same incident haunt a young Yorkshire man. A former soldier is researching his father’s disappearance when he stumbles across a wartime act of sabotage. A young couple and their son, unaware of the history of the huge stone wall that faces their flat, receive terrifying visitations. But who was the spy, codenamed Sciron, who was responsible for destruction, betrayal and death?

Review:

  • Book cover – 5 points – beautifully done
  • Cohesive storyline – 5 points – the author merges three, seemingly separate situations together flawlessly
  • Spelling/Grammar/Punctuation (SGP) – 4 points – some missing punctuation, mostly on titles (e.g., Mr. or Mrs., etc.)
  • Character development – 5 points – excellent
  • Credibility – 5 points – expertly done

OVERALLBUY THIS BOOK! I thoroughly enjoyed Sciron, and I was always annoyed when I had to put it down to go work on something else. I’m pretty sure I could have finished this book in one day if I hadn’t had to attend to other business. It’s just that awesome! A note to US readers: the author is British, so he uses British spelling and expressions. Don’t confuse that with poor editing. There are some minimal editing errors, but not enough to impede your enjoyment of this book. Just in case it wasn’t clear before, BUY THIS BOOK

    Many thanks Faydra!

    Sadly I’m going to have to mark you down on your surname spelling… 🙂
