About Sharon Gosling

Sharon Gosling always wanted to be a writer. She started as an entertainment journalist, writing about television series such as Stargate and Battlestar Galactica. Her first novel was published under a pen name in 2010. Sharon and her husband live in a very small cottage in a very remote village in the north of England, surrounded by sheep-dotted fells. The village has its own vampire, although Sharon hasn't met it yet. The cat might have, but he seems to have been sworn to secrecy and won't say a thing.

Our customer reviews

I received an eARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I think I would have enjoyed this more if I'd read it a few years back, mainly because I have a feeling that this book is targeted at a younger audience. I didn't relate or connect with any of the characters. I like the R�??�?�©my (our main character) is French, since I have a love for everything French and I enjoyed the bit of romance between her and Thaddeus Rec (our other main character and policeman). I kind of liked Thaddeus since he tried to save her from falling in the beginning, and I think that was quite sweet, but aside from that there's not really much to say. J (a sweet young side character) was probably my favorite character - even though he 'talked' funny or rather, whenever he said something it was written like he said it - quite confusing in the beginning. The setting I didn't care that much for, I like the fact that it takes place in London, but in underground tunnels.. That I didn't care for. As you can probably guess, this book received a low rating due to it's lack of badass characters and epic storyline. But oh well, you can't win every timeshow more
