BOOK REVIEW by Michelle :

“We share nothing,” I whispered, my words coming out slow and
labored.

“We’ll see,” he said, taking his bandana and wiping the blood from his lips. “We both understand loss.”

“I haven’t lost myself,” I breathed. “Not like you, Jack.”

“Perhaps not,” he said, sitting back in his chair. “But we have both lost people that we love. We have both been lied to and been betrayed by them.”

“That hasn’t made me a monster like you,” I said.......




This book was like a crescendo of words. The build up to .........well, I can’t say but it is rather explosive!

KabOOoooooMMMmmmm!! 

‘Dead Statues’ had me in this incredible natural high of banter, emotion, fast paced storyline. Murphy and Potter, they have such magical character chemistry.

Tim swings us away from the banter and all the other characters we are used to in this instalment. This is a private showing with few characters we already know and we meet new characters. I am going to put it out there, I think every individual reader is going to think they had sorted Jack Seth in their mind from all the previous works Tim has written in the Kiera Hudson series.

I know I had.

But......!!!!! 

I am a mum and I ‘feel’ for the lost boy.

Tim gives us intermissions of the Jack Seth we know and a story within a story of Jack who like the best of the baddies we know of, they were all once a child.

What makes an evil person go from a little boy to a man that let the curse take him over and devour the good in that boy, the good in Jack, eat it up until there was nothing left but a shell of a character that thrived on evil and the despicable?

What does it take?

This story is chilling, emotional, you will ‘feel’ at times different towards Jack, you can’t help it, there will be gore.

By the time you have finished this, you will be banging on Tim’s facebook door wanting Dead Water and no doubt you will be like me and left a bit like one of Tim’s statues.

The ‘Tim Factor’ is ever present, and you will be shocked. I can say no more as always in Tim’s books, he is becoming quite the Master of Deceit and he will twist you into a knot. 

I must mention the brilliant cover. It does grab your attention, Jack Seth with Kiera in his clutches. This cover does evoke feelings in the viewer. It definitely has a 3D 'feel' to it for me. Miss Suzi Midnight cover designer has done it again.

  1. At least Kiera doesn't look very scared in the cover so that gives me.a little bit of comfort.

    Will I end up liking Jack Seth in the end?
