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.

    Sounds a great book for horror fans, thank you Olga.

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Rosie. Yes, it is. I wouldn’t dare to recommend it people who don’t enjoy the genre, though. 😉

    You’ve given us another well done review, Olga.
    What you said about it being difficult to connect with the characters in the first half, and about the main character not having much page-time in the first half — but improving in the second half would help me decide if I were on the fence.
    Huge hugs to you my friend.

      Thanks, Teagan. It’s one of these characters that there’s not much to root for to begin with, but eventually becomes the hero… Mind you, you need to love your horror. It’s not one of the easy ones.

    Wow! I’m excited about this book, Olga! It’s right up my alley. You know I too love the Horror genre and this book intrigues me. I also enjoy books that are intricate with their plot. Great review! Thank you. 😀 xx

    1. OlgaNunez says:

      Thanks, Vashti. It’s very cleverly written indeed and I think you’ll enjoy it for sure (just keep going!). 😉

    Reminiscent of the ‘glory days’ of Stephen King, Olga. I wish Dylan well, and hope that sales are as good as your review!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

      Thanks, Pete. I think lovers of the genre definitely have taken to him. And I suspect it won’t be the last of his horror novels I’ll read. Considering how much I like the genre I don’t ready that many books in it, but then I enjoy many different books. I hope you’re feeling better. 🙂

    So glad you liked this, I didn’t know I liked horror until I read it! I thoroughly recommend The Dead Lands, it’s his best. 🙂

      Thanks, Terry. I’m not sure why (hey, I’m a psychiatrist but not an analyst, so I won’t analyse myself…) I’ve always loved horror although for some reason I seem to read far less of it these days. I’m sure I’ll be reading quite a few of his books and I’m putting the Dead Lands on my list. (I was travelling and read it almost in one sitting. It made the journey go faster, and my heart too!) 🙂

  6. #RBRT The Dead Lands (A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller. The Dead Lands #1) by Dylan J. Morgan (@dylanjmorgan). A futuristic nightmare, where you can’t trust anybody. #TuesdayBookBlog – authortranslatorOlga says:

    […] recently read and reviewed another one of Dylan Morgan’s novels Flesh (see here), a horror novel, and I was impressed by the book. Another member of the review team (hi, Terry!) […]

Don't be shy! Tell me something!
