This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

 …

My first book this week is a review request, from a new author, featuring her debut novel in the genre of African Literary Fiction …

‘MYSTERIOUS DEPTHS’ by MIMIZZ EFEMENA AGWAROTA

Ancient curses. Angry gods. Corrupt tribal chiefs. Romance. War.
 
When Mamuke undertakes an errand for her pregnant sister, little does she know that her journey would catapult her into a dark world full of secrecy, suspense, and adventure. As she embarks on a pilgrimage of self-discovery with far-reaching consequences, loyalties are tested to the limit.
 
Born in mysterious circumstances with no memory of her parents, Mamuke is taken on an arduous journey to her past with nail-biting events building up to the moment of truth between her and the prince she crosses paths with on her journey to the unknown. Lured into the arms of Prince Uwami, her courage and loyalty are tested, but will she rise to these challenges, even if they become a matter of life and death?
 
Mysterious Depths is a walk back in time to a period when Africa was ruled by men whose powers were as great as the ability of the priests who did their bidding with the gods. A time when curses could make or break one’s destiny, where fates were decided by lethal rituals and life was littered with bad omens. An intriguing tale based on deep-rooted cultural mysteries, entrenched in a bygone era describing the tug of war between love and power in an ancient African setting.

I do try not to feature too many of the ‘freebie’ downloads via NetGalley or Amazon, however both the authors of my next two books took the trouble to link up with me on Twitter and contact me direct about their respective offers and the possibility of a review, so they definitely deserve a mention for my money.

‘MURDER IN THE LIBRARY’ by STEVE DEMAREE

Three-hundred-three pound Lt. Dekker becomes visibly upset when he learns that his longtime friend and partner on the Hilldale Police Force plans to follow his doctor’s advice and lose weght.

Meanwhile, Dekker and Murdock investigate the death of their mentor, who was found murdered in the locked library in his home.Surveillance cameras show that no one other than the deceased entered the library. The deceased left a clue for the police, only they cannot figure out what the clue means.

‘AS THE CROW FLIES’ by DAMIEN BOYD

Detective Inspector Nick Dixon’s former climbing partner, Jake Fayter, is dead. Killed in a fall whilst practising a new route on High Rock, Cheddar Gorge. Convinced that Jake would not have made such a simple mistake, Nick Dixon starts digging and uncovers a web of intrigue and criminal activity that will rock the sleepy seaside town of Burnham-on-Sea to its core.

As the body count rises, Dixon is forced to break every rule in the book and put his own life on the line to bring the killer out into the open.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.
