To my readers,
I apologize for the hiatus here! Last year I found myself in a serious book funk. I read a few that I thoroughly enjoyed but couldn’t find my previous passion for devouring pages as I had in 2016.
In conjunction, I finally decided to pursue writing for more than just a hobby. I began writing a short story which led to a few more… long story short, they will be published this year. So yay for that!
I will be returning to book reviews, but not as heavy as I was in years prior to 2017! I’ll be reading and reviewing about 1-2 books a month, that is my goal!
Hope everyone has been enjoying their reads!
Here is a little about the author of A Leak of Madness, Alice J Black!
Alice lives and works in the North East of England with her partner and slightly ferocious cats! Alice has always enjoyed writing from being a child when she used to carry notebooks and write stories no matter where she went. Nothing much has changed and she writes all manner of fiction with a tendency to lean towards the dark side. Most of her work is rooted in darkness, her inspiration coming from a macabre selection of reads as well as the dreams that frequent her sleep.
Her debut novel, The Doors, was released three years ago and her next novel release, the first part in a series of seven, is due to be released in Autumn this year. Several of her short stories have been included in anthologies with various presses and she is always working on more. When she’s not writing, she always has a book in her hand and will read from whatever genre suits her that day.

Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of giants, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.
