Emma The Little Bookworm

Today I welcome historical fiction author, Susan Appleyard to talk about her recent Chill With A Book Award and all things bookish!

Hello, Emma and thank you for inviting me to be ‘under the spotlight’.

Huge congratulations on winning your Chill Award! You must be so happy that your work has been recognised in this way. Now, before we carry on, would you please introduce yourself to my readers, just in case they don’t know you already …

I was born in Yorkshire but immigrated to Canada many years ago with my little family of hubby and three children. Now I am at a stage in my life where I can spend only six of the warmest months in Canada and the other six in Mexico.

My review of The Scattered Flock

The Scattered Flock is the second book in Jana Petken’s Flock Trilogy. We are re-introduced to some of the characters from the first book. The protagonist, David Sanz, and the Inquisitor, Gaspar de Amo make their appearance early. In this book de Amo is portrayed as more evil than we could ever imagine. The other antagonist, the marauder, Guillaume, however, is revealed to have a softer side, making him a more three-dimensional character than the purely evil de Amo. Another protagonist is introduced: Rafael, the brother of the Duke of Sagrat, a much more likeable character than the dead duke.

One of the things that Ms. Petken excels at is giving her characters different voices. The dialogue is superb. Like the first book, there is plenty of action here, along with betrayal, death and some surprises. Those who like a love story along with the action, gore and horror supplied in generous measure in this book, might be disappointed, but there are hints that something might develop in the next book.

There are some editing errors. Quotation marks mysteriously appear in odd places, and also some formatting errors with lines indented when they shouldn’t be. None of this spoiled my enjoyment of the book. I recommend it to all lovers of historical adventure and look forward to reading the next one.
