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 you Olga.

    1. A great book, Rosie. We’re lucky to have such a selection of books available. Thanks for your hard work.

  2. Thank you Olga for such a thoughtful and positive review. It’s great to be on your site.

    1. Thanks, Geoffrey. I had a great time (and a few anxiety-inducing moments as well) reading your book. I’m sure many readers will enjoy it. Thanks for the opportunity and good luck.

  3. Sounds like something of a mixed bag. I am attracted to the ancient aspects, but less so the sailing. Despite living all my life on an island, I have never been attracted to being on the sea in ships.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I have the feeling that you would enjoy this one, but perhaps try a sample and see. I hope everything is well. Keep safe!

    After reading your wonderful review, I can totally understand what you mean about hard define the genre, lol. But that’s probably half the attraction to appeal. 🙂 xx

    1. Indeed, Debby. It’s not easy to find a truly original plot, but sometimes the combination of elements puts a new spin on things and can work very well. Enjoy the rest of the week. 🙂

          2. ♥♥♥

  5. Oh my goodness… There’s a lot more to this book than I expected. Thanks for your intriguing and mindful review, Olga. This is a great introduction to Geoffrey. Hugs all around.

    1. There is, for sure. Thanks, Teagan, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday. ♥

  6. An excellent review, Olga. I don’t like water at all and I don’t swim, but I think I could still enjoy the concept of sailing [in a book].

    1. I have very limited experience of the matter, although I’ve enjoyed quite a few books set in sailboats and with a sailing theme. I know you’ve written about historical subjects and quite enjoy a paranormal element as well, so I think you’d like this one. Enjoy the weekend!
