*** Review *** NORTHMAN by J.D. Hughes

book blurb

 

Kate is academically brilliant, but trapped in a dead love and a dry career. And she has an unbearable secret. Horrific and inexplicable accidents at a Viking burial site near Repton, England, bring her face to face with unreason and touch the raw nerve of terror within her. But running is not enough.

Haunted by the malevolent spirit of a long-dead Viking madman, who pursues her, seeking her out for a consummation at which she can only guess, Kate cannot escape. The haunting is relentless and exists only to harm. In Chicago, an innocent man discovers how much. In Dover, thousands die.

Kate can only keep running. Thrown together in Madrid with Michael McLaren – B movie director – the descent into madness begins. Soon, others are trapped in the same web of terror and together they are thrust back 1200 years into 9th century England to face the Northman.

Or whatever it is that confronts them.

For behind the dead Northman lies something with limitless power, infinitely more dangerous – an ancient evil from the dawn of time bent on erasing mankind.

It may mean ultimate conflict. Ultimate sacrifice. For them all.

 

A TIMELESS LOVE. AN ANCIENT EVIL. THE NORTHMAN IS COMING.

Ex writer/director of promos and commercials, loving writing for the writing and not the pay.

I enjoy reading and writing the impossible made possible and in my writing use the vitality of cross-genre and magic realism to explore as many major themes as I can cram in, without slowing the storyline or plot development. It’s what makes me happy and keeps me relatively sane. My son, when only five, asked me ‘How can I be happy’? My answer was ‘If what you are doing isn’t working, stop doing it and do something else.’ Not very clever perhaps, but anything else is madness.

JD Hughes has two novels, supernatural thrillers NORTHMAN and his latest: AND SOON THE SONG, plus three short stories, BOMBER, ISSUE 49 & THE 500 here on Amazon. He is currently working on his third novel, due out later this year.

review by rachel

Right from the first page you can tell you are in for a great supernatural thriller!

The book was written with lots of detail and had been well researched.

This book had multiple story lines  going from Viking raids, World War 2 bringing us right to the present day. There was never a dull moment and was quite gritty at times.

All the characters were realistic and had emotional scars that were important to the over all story. Lots of good verse evil, jealousy, loneliness  and bits of gore and violence!

A great read for Horror, thriller and supernatural readers.

excerpt

“Good morning, sire, it’s good to have you back. How was Venice?” Patrice asks as I fly past her desk, walking straight into my office, slamming the door behind me.

But that doesn’t stop her. She barges in with hot coffee, making herself comfortable in the black leather chair near my desk. “Okay, spill it. What’s going on?”

“Not now, Patrice,” I reply dismissively, switching on my computer.

In a daze, my eyes are fixed on the blank screen. I’m trying to avoid the inevitable conversation, and trying even harder to ignore her. She sets the cup down on my desk, softening her voice to almost a whisper, asking once again, “Donovan, what’s going on?”

“Don’t you have work to do?” I snap.

“Yes sir, I suppose I do,” she snaps back defensively as she gets up from her chair, mumbling the word asshole under her breath as she heads towards the door.

“I heard that,” I respond, somehow managing to muster up a slight chuckle. “I apologize, alright? Sit back down.”

“Accepted. Now, are you gonna tell me what’s got you in such a pissy mood?”

“In a nutshell…she did it again.”

“She? She who? Scarlett?”

“Yes, Scarlett.”

And there it is. The look that I was trying so hard to avoid. The poor-Donnie, sad-eyed, frowny-faced look that I know I’ll get every single time that I tell this fucking story. Perhaps I can just handle this in one fell swoop, and have Patrice send out a mass memo describing the details of the nightmare-in-Venice, fucking-kill-me-now debacle.

“I don’t get it, Donovan. She was the one that propo….”

“Please, don’t even say it. I really don’t want to get into this right now. Alright?”

“Sure, okay, Donnie. Can I do anything for you?”

She gets up again to leave, but pauses twice before reaching the door. I can see that she’s searching for the right thing to say. Something…anything…to lighten the mood, to cheer me up, to lessen the blow of what Scarlett has done, now twice…as if anything could. But I just want her to leave.

“You know she loves you, right? Do you want me to talk to her? I’m sure I can…”

I interrupt before she can say anything else. “Not another goddamn word about it, understand? Now, I have work to do.”

“Fine, for now. But you’ll have to talk about it at some point, you know.”

I continue to stare at the still-blank computer screen, waving her away.

Defeated, for now, at last she leaves, closing the door behind her.

The clock on the wall seems to be ticking slower than usual. I’ve been here for three hours, and am finding it impossible to concentrate, especially with my cell going off every ten minutes with calls and text messages from Scarlett. I’m not ready to talk to her, and to be honest, I don’t know if I ever will be. I don’t know if I even care at this point. Although I’m slightly curious, I really have no idea what we have to talk about anymore.

I need to get out of this hotel and clear my head. I knew coming here straight from the airport was probably a mistake, but it seemed like a good idea at the time. Better than sitting in that penthouse, alone, with nothing but the all-too-fresh memories of yet another Scarlett-related nightmare to keep me company.

Placing my cell phone in the top drawer of my desk, I change out of my monkey suit and into the spare set of clothes that I keep in the closet of my office. Stopping by Patrice’s desk on my way out, I let her know that I’m leaving for the rest of the day, and that I don’t want to be bothered, by anyone...no matter what’s on fire.

“Are you okay?” she asks, still pushing, hoping for some sort of verbal spillage on the details of my Venetian vacation.

“No, but I will be.”

Summary of The Gentleman’s Series – All Four Books

In A Gentleman’s Affair, (volume 1) we met the handsome Malibu playboy, Donovan Hart, the entitled, notorious heartbreaker, who would rather spend his days on the beach than in the office. He had his pick of the most beautiful women in Malibu, and had no intention of settling down. But tragic events would change all that and force him to make serious changes in his life. Donovan goes from player to entrepreneur overnight, and finding love…surprisingly… becomes a high priority. That, and opening the first adult club in Malibu.

about the author

A.J. Linn published his debut novel, A Gentleman’s Affair, Volume 1 of The Gentleman’s Series, in May, 2013.

Since that time, he has continued protagonist Donovan Hart’s story in A Gentleman’s Secret, published in December, 2013, and revealed Donovan’s earlier life in a prequel, A Gentleman’s Memoir, a novella published in August, 2014.

The series quickly became very popular with fans of his RP/character blog, which he’d been writing for almost a year. He credits those fans with this series, since they were the ones who encouraged him to “write a book” and dedicated the books to them.

With his unique voice and writing style, the popularity of the series began to grow, despite the promotion and marketing challenges facing a self-published indie author.

In an original and creative idea, he gave his readers the opportunity to submit “characters” for A Gentleman’s Secret and A Gentleman’s Memoir, which he crafted into the story. The results were intriguing and sometimes hilarious, as he paid the ultimate compliment to his fans and readers…making their characters part of Donovan’s story.

While having full-time job and a very busy life make finding time to write a challenge at times, his readers are in agreement that he has done a fantastic job: four books in two years is quite an accomplishment.

The paperback editions of the series can be found on Amazon. The ebooks are available on Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, and iTunes.

author interview

Here is a little insight into AJ Linn and the man that writes The Gentleman’s Series.

 

Donovan’s search for love has been the basis of the series. When you were developing Scarlett’s character, did you look to celebrities or someone you know personally as inspiration…or is she an embodiment of your own ideal?

-I could never put Scarlett into one simple category. She has elements/characteristics of many different people, but most definitely all created out of my own imagination.

Donovan’s had a few disasters when dating. Which of those crazy ladies did you most enjoy to write and why?

-I would have to say Zoie. The fact that she made up an entire online profile and lied about essentially everything about herself just to meet him was interesting, as well as fun to develop and write.

Aside from Donovan’s bank balance and privileges, you have portrayed him as just an ordinary guy with a genuine and lovable personality. How much of his character is based on imagination and how much is based on AJ Linn?

-Everything about him is fictional. Although, I do enjoy having…Uh, I will stick to my previous answer.

If you had to pick, who would be your favorite character of the series?

-Patrice.

The Espionage Effect - The Blindfold Pic Quote

Excerpt

“ you remember their love?” An odd question, even to my ears, but I needed to know.

 didn’t reply right away, only briefly paused, then continued typing.

I didn’t release the photograph. Didn’t turn around. Entranced to a level I couldn’t resist or deny, I remained rooted to the spot on his bamboo office floor, clinging to a fragment of someone else’s joyous life, stuck in my admiration for those who’d been able to defy the choking darkness of the world for its breath of light.

The keyboard clicking ended entirely. But I barely noticed.

My heart pounded in my ears as I gripped the frame, thumbs slipped into place on the perfect silver surface. My fingerprints might as well have marred the perfect picture. Its image marked me. Indelibly.

How had one two-dimensional image branded my heart so fast?

On a shaky exhale, it hit me. It hadn’t. The delicate aging photograph hadn’t been the one thing, it had been the last thing, the proverbial straw on the camel’s back—the catalyst to the fractures spider-webbing through an armored façade I’d so carefully constructed finally shattering apart, blowing to dust the once impenetrable fortress walls I’d imprisoned myself within.

“I remember.” His voice slid over my senses, warm and soft. His heat came up behind me, wrapping around me as his strong hands ran down my arms, then covered my hands as they still clutched the frame.

For the first time in my life, I finally stood without my armor. Terrified, yet convinced I needed to take the leap of faith even if I died from the fall, I leaned back into his strength.

And he held me. As I began to shake, gripped the frame tighter for fear of dropping it, he simply held me.

“Their laughter is the greatest memory; I can still hear its echo in my head, feel its presence in the middle of the night.”

An aching pang thumped from behind my ribcage. That he would be lonely in the darkness too, seek the memory of what he’d once had to lull him to sleep.

I’d done the opposite. “I can’t remember mine.” My voice croaked. Hands trembling uncontrollably, I clattered the bottom metal corners of the frame down onto the perfectly polished surface before I dropped it. “Their love, I mean.” I sucked in a ragged breath as my arms drew against my middle. I hugged myself, trying to hold in the pain that I’d never let myself feel.

His arms followed, covering mine. A cramp burned at the base of my throat, and I closed my eyes, pinching back hot tears, afraid of losing myself to the scathing onslaught of feelings. As my breathing grew shallow, Alec tightened his hold, wordlessly providing his protection from the unseen threat.

Excerpt 1:

She had her head thrown back laughing as she raced across the wet sand. The setting sun lit the wildfire in her eyes, and Ryan would’ve followed her anywhere. The warm, foamy saltwater lapped at her toes, as anxious to touch some part of her beautiful body as he was. Launching himself forward, every muscle in his body propelled him towards her. He caught her hand and then leaned to scoop up her lithe form into his arms.
Every patch of her silky skin that connected with his sent a spark of electricity straight to his groin. His heart raced, but he kept running with her. Running away, maybe.
With a delighted squeal, she leaned in and clung tightly to his neck. Her long, thick hair, the color of black coffee with caramel and blonde ribbons spun through it from their summer in the sun, cascaded out over his left bicep, flying behind them as he raced her down the shores of Gypsy Beach. Her hazel eyes danced just for him.
Everything about her was a juxtaposition, as if she was in constant contention with herself. Wild, free, and living on the edge of an impulse that made his entire world spin. Every single thing about Sienna Cooper was perfect by his seventeen-year-old estimations.
“Stop running and put me down so I can kiss you, Ryan McNamara!” Her laughter and her order whipped around him in the salt-soaked wind, stirring and igniting every cell in his body.
“Yes, ma’am.” He set her on her feet and wasted no time mating their mouths. She was so sweet it was sinful, like spun sugar that melted in his arms. He’d fallen in love with her two summers before and spent every school year longing to get back to Gypsy Beach and back to Sienna.
His lips kept hers occupied while his hands tracked down her slender sides and then dipped into that bikini bottom that had been driving him to distraction all damn day. He cupped her backside, and when that simply wasn’t enough he kneaded her with greed.
A timid moan reverberated against his tongue as he slipped it between her lips, memorizing the heat, the way they swelled, the way they tasted, and the all-encompassing feeling of her body needy for him. That moment would have to last him until next summer.
Unable to stop himself, his right hand traversed the short distance from her sweet little backside to the perfect patch of skin between her thighs. She trembled, and her body rolled against his. He almost lost it all there on the deserted beach.
Her mound quaked as his thumb hesitantly explored. Her breath tangled in her throat, and her eyes closed in expectant ecstasy. He could feel the tender heat and the liquid desire gathering in preparation for him, and that night he was going to make a claim. They would be each other’s firsts, each other’s only if he had anything to say about it. He’d unite them in time and space, and it would be enough to get him through the next nine months of school five states away. It had to be enough.
“I love you Sienna Rose, and, God, baby, I need you. Before we have to leave tomorrow, I just need you. Stay with me tonight.”
With that sexy smirk and the fire that lived inside of her that always seemed to consume both of their souls, she followed him inside his parents’ beach house.

Life is full of the unexpected. At times, the only thing you can do is just breathe. 

For twenty-four year old Cassandra Anderson, life hasn’t been easy. Haunted daily by her own demons and memories of the past, she suffers from panic attacks and questionable anal-retentiveness. The motto she lives by is “Trust no one. Fear nothing.” 

Bartender Lucas Daniels comes into her life like a whirlwind. Hot enough to melt wax, he is tantalizing, sometimes overbearing, and quite possibly one of her weaknesses. Lucas, having secrets of his own, understands pain all too well. 

Only time can tell what the future holds for them. Will Lucas cause Cass to question everything? Will she be drawn to him or will they end in resentment? 

Due to the nature of this book, it is only recommended for mature audiences. 18+

The rest of the day passes quickly and then I’m on my way home, when I get in I start preparing dinner so that when Felix comes home his dinner is ready. He likes his dinner to be ready on the table, he doesn’t like to wait. We sit down to dinner and there is a silence between us, I decide to say something. “Felix are you ok? You’re very quiet tonight.”
He stops eating, puts his knife and fork down and looks me in the eye and says “You looked like a tart today when you were giving the presentation, all the lads were staring, your top was too low!” He sneers at me.
“What? I don’t believe you just said that to me, that is so hurtful.” I start sobbing. I can’t believe he would speak to me that way, he never has before.
“I can’t believe you went to an interview dressed like that, of course they’ll give you the job dressed like that, they probably think they can look down your top everyday.” He looks so angry.
“It was a lady that interviewed me.” I say during sobs. “There is nothing wrong with my top and what gives you the right to say that to me anyway?” Obviously that was the wrong thing to say as he gets up from his chair and strides over to my side of the table, grabs my ponytail and pulls it so hard that I have to look up at him. “YOU are my wife and no one else will look at you with lust in their eyes, only I’m allowed to do that.” He lets go of my hair, walks back to his chair, sits down and resumes eating his dinner. I’m sitting there with my mouth open staring at him with tears running down my face. I don’t know what to say, so I just sit there. He looks at me then says “Go and wipe your face you look a mess.”
I get up from the table, go out of the room to the downstairs toilet and sob silently. What the hell just happened out there? I clean my face, then go and sit back at the table. I’m not hungry now so I just sit there with my head bowed down. I don’t want to look at him!
“So babe, tell me about the interview, how did it go?” he says still eating his dinner. Is he serious? “Come on tell me!” he’s starting to shout!
So I tell him about Blue Eye and Helen, the HR Manager and about the three stages of interviews. I tell him I’m really excited about this job and that I loved the company. He sits there nodding his head at me and asking a few questions. “I have another interview with Clifton Associates, a Facilities Company tomorrow, the job looks good too, but I think today’s job would be better all round” I say waiting for him to say something.
“Sounds good, let’s see what happens, good luck tomorrow” he says. He stands up, puts his plate in the sink and says “I’m going to watch TV” and walks out the room. He’s being so weird, normally the two of us would do the dishes and chat about the day and what’s ahead for the week.

It all happened so quickly. . . As the blood slowly dripped into her mouth she crawled, reaching for the phone, thankfully it wasn’t too far out of her reach. She could hear him upstairs in their bedroom, ranting and smashing as he went from room to room. He was like a tornado on its destructive path which was their flat. She shook her head slightly, trying to focus her swollen eyes and pressed the redial button. Thank God she had been speaking to Lucy earlier that evening.

Please Pick up…. Please pick up…. Please pick up Rebecca willed….Quick… as the noise came closer, getting louder and nearer. “Lucy, help me please,” she cried out, and then suddenly the call broke off into screams.

The line went dead…

He walked in, dodging the pottery object that was hurtling towards his head, having left Lucy’s hand seconds earlier. “Hey, Lucy, come on?” He made a beeline for her, as she made off in the opposite direction heading towards the dressing table.

She was scanning it for more missiles to throw at him. Chris grabbed her arms, as she fought him off like a wildcat…

He was surprised, and instantly let her go; he hadn’t even grabbed her hard. He stood there stunned. For once in his life, he didn’t know what to do…
