Since finishing university, I have had a lot of time on my hands, so I’ve been using this time to read! With stressful deadlines and late nights, I haven’t had the time to read, so it’s perfect to have this time to read. I loved taking part in the Neverland Blog Tour for Those Who Lie and I’ve been lucky enough to take part in another Blog Tour, this time for The Devil’s Poetry by Louise Cole. I am the sixth stop on the amazing The Devil’s Poetry Blog Tour.
The Devil’s Poetry? Let me tell you a little bit about it;
Questions are dangerous but answers can be deadly.
Callie’s world will be lost to war – unless she can unlock the magic of an ancient manuscript. She and her friends will be sent to the front line. Many of them won’t come back. When a secret order tells her she can bring peace by reading from a book, it seems an easy solution – too easy. Callie soon finds herself hunted, trapped between desperate allies and diabolical enemies.
The Order is every bit as ruthless as the paranormal Cadaveri. Callie can only trust two people – her best friend and her ex-marine bodyguard. And they are on different sides. She must decide: how far will she go to stop a war?
Dare she read this book? What’s the price – and who pays it?
The Devil’s Poetry is properly one of my favourite books I have ever read! I sure have read a lot of books, just look at my bookcase. From the first moment of reading, I knew I would fall in love because I was hooked from the very first chapter. I would call it an unputdownable book, every second I had, I was buried in the mystery that surrounds Callie being a ‘Reader’. When it ended, well I was disappointed!
It’s crazy how many different emotions Louise was able to capture in the book, one moment I would be feeling scared for Callie‘s and the world’s future, then heartbreak for Callie when she finds out the truth about her mother. There’s also that small part of you that feels hope, hope that everything will turn out okay. Not just for Callie but her family and friends, as well as the rest of the world.
I was able to connect with all the main characters, Callie, Jace and Ella, I felt like I knew them well. My favourite part was how you didn’t just read Callie‘s point of view, you were thrust into the lives of the other characters! You knew exactly what was happening for the other characters. Including the Cadaveri, the ‘white-eyed’ guys and knowing what was happening with different countries Defense Ministers.
I love books that focus on different points of views, it gives you more information for the main arch of the story. I love the different pop culture references Louise has included! Seeing as I’m a massive Formula 1 fan, I love the funny remark to Grand Prix when Ella was driving over 90 to get away. That was a massive hit for the die hard motorsports fan here.
How about a little about the author, Louise Cole;
Louise has spent her life reading and writing. She read English at Oxford – read being the operative word – and hasn’t stopped reading since. In her day-job she is an award-winning journalist, a former business magazine editor and director of a media agency. She writes about business but mainly the business of moving things around: transport, logistics, trucks, ships, and people.
You can follow her on Twitter.
As I previously said, I am only the sixth stop on The Devil’s Poetry Blog Tour, if you have enjoyed this post, there are still eight more stops to fuel your love! I would love for you to go and give some love to Louise and if you can not wait any longer to read it for yourself, you can buy The Devil’s Poetry to read in Ebook (Kindle Format) or paperback from Amazon. You can also find it on Goodreads now!
I hope you have enjoyed this little review! I highly recommend The Devil’s Poetry to all those who love a good mystery.
