Karen’s Magic Review

I love the cover of this book and it perfectly summed up the contents. It was a free download and as it was classed as a short read, I gave it a go.

I’m glad I did as Adam Mitchell is a crime noir writer, and when you delve into one of his books, you never know what to expect.  This books transports you back to the 30s or 40s and I couldn’t wait to see where it led.

I’ve also read one of Adam’s other books, Central City Tales.  He has a great way with words.

With Ey eof the Fire, the opening page sold the whole book. This author knows how to write descriptions! They are incredible as you are able picture exactly how the land lies, and how our heroes, a party of four, make their way into the jungle to look for a lost tribe.

‘Dawn broke out onto the thick leafy treetops of the Borneo Jungle. The richness of the jungle’s colours fused upoin what may have been the strangest sight seen by man in this vast wilderness since the beginning of time itself. A dark sinister, and gloomy lake some ten feet miles wide as the parrot filies, lay shimming beneath thick patches of silvered whisper like mists. All of which seemed to rise and fall like clouds of steam from its glassy surface.’

Set in the thirties,  the language is perfect. I love the way they all conversed with each other. It really showed the times and we went from their conversations to their thoughts.

Off the party went after landing their plane in a lake, to find the lost tribe of the Arbor. They expected a warm welcome and, as with all good stories, it wasn’t what they got. They have to fight for survival and the adventure is fast paced as they run for their lives.

A book that is a little different is always interesting to read.

I do hope you will give it a go.
