I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Thank our for your review of John Dolan’s book, Karma’s Children Book 1. Sounds like my kind of novel! BTW — I am always in awe of the thoroughness and eloquence of your reviews.

    1. Thanks, James. You are very kind. John Dolan’s books are fabulous. If you haven’t caught up with the other ones, I’d start by his previous series, as the characters and the events are interconnected, even if it is not always evident how. If you’re into international intrigue and great characters, you’re in for a treat. All the best.

  2. Your review makes me want to try his books!

    1. Thanks, Jacquie! I hope you enjoy it if you get to read it!

  3. Great review, Olga. I like the sound of this book a lot, but as usual, I am put off by ‘trilogy’. I prefer books to be stand alone, in most cases. I have noted this one to check out though.
    Best wishes, Pete.
    (Have an enjoyable break, you deserve it)

    1. Thanks, Pete. To be honest, I think although the trilogy will work by itself, all the stories the author has written until now form a whole universe. I think you’d enjoy them, but I’m also reluctant with long series. In this case, I was lucky to catch it at the very beginning. You could always try the first book in the previous series and see how you liked it… Have a great rest of the week.

    I remember you reviewed this author before Olga. I’m making a point to check out this new series. Although, I have to say that the subtitle – Karma’s Children book 1 initially threw me off thinking it’s a children’s book. 🙂

    1. It’s not at all, but I see what you mean. His previous series was called ‘Time, Blood and Karma’ and I think that’s where it comes from, because many of the characters carry on from the previous series (and, now that I’ve almost finished the second book in the trilogy, I can say that Karma plays a big part in the story and chickens do come home to roost…). Enjoy the rest of the week and I hope you have a look at the series. I think you’ll appreciate it.

  6. An interesting review, Olga. You do write such lovely and detailed reviews. I hope you are enjoying your Easter break.

    Great review, Olga! I am very interested in this book since I enjoyed reading Time Blood and Karma series. Thank you for sharing – there is so much to read, and your reviews are always helpful when I make my choice. Have a lovely weekend, my friend xx
