Reflections: Cathedral Chronicles by Elizabeth Wixley is full of suspense and drama. I was lured in by the darkness. This was quite the thrill ride where the mysteries unravel little by little. A dark intriguing read that pulled me in right away.In some ways this was an emotional roller coaster ride. So many twists and turns. An unpredictable story that was a great escape into the unknown. Reflections is a well-written paranormal story that has more than just vampires. Would highly recommend. Quote ~Sophia felt light and embraced the triumphant feeling that comes with having conquered a fear and survived. Boldly she stepped softly towards the edge of the building and looked out over the city. Everything was glowing, streetlights, and neon signs. Dotted here and there fires burned. Then the cries drew closer, screaming, howling, shrieks, a cacophony of noises that she barely recognized. Every note seemed to resonate with the burning dark desire and hunger for blood. …”
Group spamming and what looks like reviewing her own books/referring to her own book as 5* = no way And let's not even mention the dozens of five star reviews... mainly from authors... who mainly give five star reviews... I may be barking up the wrong tree, but somehow I think not.I totally understand promotion, but posting as if you're a reader reviewing a book that actually you wrote? Listing it as 5* as though it's someone else's book? And doing this over and over again? Annoying.For an idea of what I mean, see: https://www.goodreads.com/group/72929... https://www.goodreads.com/group/93273...https://www.goodreads.com/group/11079...https://www.goodreads.com/group/11673...https://www.goodreads.com/group/52937...https://www.goodreads.com/group/11455...https://www.goodreads.com/group/13599...https://www.goodreads.com/group/29900...https://www.goodreads.com/group/11056...https://www.goodreads.com/group/65690...https://www.goodreads.com/group/12677...https://www.goodreads.com/group/62450...https://www.goodreads.com/group/10650...There's probably more, but I've spent enough time on this. I might've read the books. Now I definitely won't.
At times this book was heart-breaking as you journey with a young couple torn apart by a conspiracy. I found myself rooting for the main characters and hoping for a happy ending but I have learnt that you can never predict the outcome of any of the ‘Cathedral Chronicle’ books. You can read this book without reading ‘In the Devil’s Own Words’ or ‘Blood Borne’ but I enjoyed seeing some of the same faces and how things link up. You can read it as a one off story or as part of a bigger picture. Don’t read this thinking it’s just another vampire story because there’s much more to this book. I’ve enjoyed reading all three and hope there is more to come.
An exciting book!This book really does have everything. Conflict and love between the main characters. A disturbing conspiracy hangs over two young lovers. As they try to unravel the mystery they are drawn into a dark world which is far beyond anything they could have imagined. Towards the end relationships become strained and I wasn’t expecting what was to come. I found this book quite scary, so it’s best to read it during daylight hours. A thrilling read from an imaginative author.
Vampires, aliens, genetic experimentation, the legend of the green man, winged creatures.....what did I just read? Maybe with a lot of editing and a paring down to only one or two main themes, an actual readable story might emerge, since there is a thread of talent running through the narrative and the imagery is good. But again, what did I just read???
This is an excellent tale of two lovers who find their ordinary world turned upside down as they are drawn into a dark and mysterious world. The London setting, many of the locations of which I am familiar, only added to the appeal.The twists and turns of the plot kept me guessing right to the end and left me hungry for more - I'll certainly be checking out the other books in the series.
All in all it's a story that moves along pretty well and I do like the imagery that the author has used. There's been a good effort at building a good story. If you liked the Twilight series you'd probably like this book. I'm a little more into the R rated variety myself.
