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.

    I enjoy Terri’s writing, read a few of her books and have bookmarked this one too. Thanks Olga. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Debby. I have a few of Terry’s book on my list but her new series gave me the perfect excuse to catch up at the beginning. I hope I can follow it along! Have a great day!

        Thanks Olga. Enjoy your week. 🙂

  2. A very good review of this book, Olga. I have only ever read two books along these lines; the one is the Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham and the other is The Stand by Stephen King. I enjoyed both of these so I will probably like this one too.

    1. I think you will, Robbie, especially as I know you’re fond of the British settings and you’ll catch a lot of the references. Thanks very much and I hope you enjoy your week.

  3. Nice to see a novel with British locations and setting. I have also been to Holy Island, and cramming everyone on there will take some working out. Good luck to Terry with her new venture.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. Yes, I´m truly intrigued by the next one too. Have a great Tuesday.

    1. Thanks, Sally. It sure is. Have a great Tuesday!

    I’m tempted to read this one myself!

    1. Go for it, Lilyn! It’s not heavy on the gore front but I think you’ll enjoy the setting. And I’m very intrigued about the next one.

        The only thing that’s holding me back is I’m sort of apocalypse / dystopianed out. I don’t want to think less of the book just because I’m just not in the mood for it yet, you know?

          I understand. You can always see how you feel about when there are more books in the series. Or check the sample and see… I tend to swap and change every so often for that reason. 😉

    1. Thanks, Kathrin. I agree, there’s a lot to discover. I hope you enjoy it (I always share reviews here so feel free to check if you’re stuck for something to read). ♥

  5. Great review, Olga. I have read The Devil You Know. Excellent writing.

    1. Thanks, Inese. I have The Devil You Know but haven’t got to it yet. I’m sure you’d enjoy this one too. 🙂

      1. Sure I will!

        1. 🙂
