So folks, i have The Theseus Paradox on my TBR list for next month. I’d love to hear what other bloggers thought of the book.

If you’ve not read it yet then you can get it at the bargain price of 99p this weekend.. what have you got to loose? if you do buy it please pop by and let me know if you enjoyed it.

Here’s the blurb about the book..

July 2005: in the midst of Operation Theseus, the largest police investigation that the UK has ever known, Detective Inspector Jake Flannagan begins to ask difficult questions that lead to the mysterious disappearance of his girlfriend and his sudden suspension from the Metropolitan Police.

    • Who masterminded London’s summer of terror?


    • Why can’t Flannagan make headway in the sprawling investigation?


    • Is Jake’s absent girlfriend really who she claims to be?

While hunting for the answers to the most complex case in British history, one man will uncover the greatest criminal deception of our time.


The author, David Videcette, is a former Scotland Yard Detective who has worked on a wealth of infamous cases, including the July 2005 London bombings. He has twenty years of policing and investigative experience, specialising in counter-terrorist operations and organised crime. He currently consults on security operations for high-net-worth individuals and is an expert media commentator on crime, terrorism, extremism and the London 7/7 and 21/7 bombings. David says, ‘I can’t tell you the truth, but I can tell you a story…’

To purchase the book or to read some reviews head to Amazon


Today I’d like to bring to your attention an awesome bundle that’s on offer. One thing i like when looking for a book to read is value for money.

I’ve looked on a couple times and what they offer seems pretty good to me and at the moment there is a bundle i’m sure you wouldn’t want to miss. The best part is you decide how much you want to pay for the bundle.

The bundle has been curated by Charlotte E. English. You may recognise the name if you’ve looked at my TBR pile. I’m already a fan of her work so just had to share this bundle with you.

Best thing about a bundle like this is you get variety. You’ll be introduced to authors you may not of heard of before and with any luck you’ll enjoy their work.

The initial titles in the Historical Fiction Bundle (minimum $3 to purchase) are:

 Sea Witch by Helen Hollick

 Miss Landon & Aubranael by Charlotte E. English

 House of Rejoicing by Libbie

 Sword of the Ronin by Travis

 Uneasy Spirits by M. Louisa Locke

If you pay more than the bonus price of just $12, you get all five of the regular titles, plus

these outstanding books:

 Pirate Code by Helen Hollick

 Mercenary by David Gaughran

 Storm in the Sky by Libbie Hawker

 Footsteps in Time by Sarah Woodbury

Also, you can get Maids of Misfortune by M. Louisa Locke for free, just for being a StoryBundle newsletter subscriber! Make sure to grab Maids before reading Uneasy Spirits, also found in the Historical Fiction bundle!

Here’s what Charlotte had to say about each of the books –

Uneasy Spirits and Maids of Misfortune by M. Lousia Locke

M. Lousia Locke was one of the first self-published authors I ever read, and among the first to show me how terrific they can be. Her novels are beautifully researched, and Annie Fuller is one of my favourite lady detectives. It’s a pleasure to be able to include not one but two of these titles in this bundle.

Mercenary by David Gaughran

David Gaughran delights in writing stories set in locations rarely chosen by others, and his novels of Latin America are unusual and packed with adventure. I’m delighted to be able to include Mercenary, which is the only book in this bundle to feature a real-life hero with a true story.

Sea Witch and Pirate Code by Helen Hollick

Helen Hollick is a writer whose books have adorned my shelves for years. Known for her Arthurian trilogy Pendragon’s Banner, she has since proved that she has a real flair for adventure and romance on the high seas as well. Jesamiah Acorne’s adventures will delight those who loved Pirates of the Caribbean – and if you enjoy a little magic and witchery as well, all the better!

Sword of the Ronin by Travis Heermann

Travis Heermann’s books are intricate and beautifully researched. They offer an absorbing glimpse into medieval Japanese life, and his Ronin’s story is absorbing and inspiring. I particularly enjoy the delicacy with which he has blended the historical with folklore and fantasy; the result is a rich and exciting story.

Footsteps in Time by Sarah Woodbury

I love time-travel tales. There’s something so enthralling — and intriguing — about the prospect of stepping back in time and experiencing a lost era. Books like Sarah Woodbury’s offer not only an exciting way back but an absorbing view of alternate history, and her vision of medieval Wales is captivating.

House of Rejoicing and Storm in the Sky by Libbie Hawker

Libbie Hawker tackles a period both popular and curiously neglected in historical fiction. The mystique, atmosphere and exoticism of ancient Egypt has fascinated many generations of scholars and dreamers alike. Libbie’s books offer an enthralling tale of royalty, religion and female power, and they feature the ever-fascinating Nefertiti to boot.

Miss Landon & Aubranael by Charlotte E. English

The Regency is among my favourite periods of history. In this book, I’ve blended it with some of my other favourite things – folklore, magic and the fae – to produce an alternate, and magical, vision of England in times past. I’ve also filled it with beautiful illustrations to bring my alternate historical world to life. I love my Regency fairy tale, and I hope you will too.
