Review: Wow this was amazing and so interesting and certainly creepy at times.
This book was so good I really enjoyed reading it, the storyline was very different to what I expected but it was a fascinating read. It felt more like a psychological horror than a down right horror, but that’s okay. A lot of the things that happened were more mental happenings.
I really liked the type of characters we met within this story they all worked well together. One thing I will say is I found it predictable in places such as who the witch really was, but I don’t mind that I predicted it, makes it interesting to see the whole story behind it.
I really enjoy this red eye book series they are such fun light horror stories, never too scary, but have enough horror to make them enjoyable.

About the Author: Alex Bell was born in 1986. She always wanted to be a writer but had several different back-up plans to ensure she didn’t end up in the poor house first. For some years these ranged from dolphin trainer to animal shelter vet but then, at fifteen, she had an epiphany involving John and Robert Kennedy and decided to become a lawyer instead.
To that end she eagerly started a Law Degree only to find it so boring that she was at a very real risk of going completely insane. To mitigate this she started writing again. The second book got her an agent with Carolyn Whitaker of London Independent Books but, unfortunately, not a publisher. The third book, written during her first summer holidays off from university, found a home with Gollancz. The Ninth Circle came out in April 2008 with possibly the most beautiful cover ever created (matched only by her second book, Jasmyn).
Not one to learn from past experience, Alex started the Legal Practice Course in London. There she met some great people and had a lot of fun messing about during lessons that were clearly meant to be extremely solemn affairs. Thankfully, she dropped out just before the point where all students must submit to the personality-removing process that is a compulsory part of being an esteemed member of the legal profession.
Now she happily dwells in an entirely make-believe world of blood, death, madness, murder and mayhem. The doctors have advised that it is best not to disturb her, for she appears to be happy there.
