Book Review: Sue Knott's "Catching On Fire"


I was so lucky to win a copy of Sue Knott's first novel, "Catching On Fire". Lucky for all of you readers, her book is selling at a stunningly low price for the Kindle. Although she is beyond good enough to stand on her own and not give a discount on downloaded books, it's a real benefit to readers that Sue Knott is trying to beef up her loyal followers. I'm recommending you all go RUN to Amazon and download it before the price skyrockets to normal price, it's worth every penny.

I'm not usually without adequate words but I'm feeling a bit that way about this book because I LOVED it that much. I think I'm kinda hard to impress. I read a lot and have high expectations for any book that I'm going to give my precious time to. This book was so well worth the hours I spent reading it, in fact I was bereft when it ended. I wanted more, more of the characters, more of the story, I wanted to know what comes next. That's a rare thing for me to find in an author. In the weeks since I've finished this stellar novel I've thought of the characters often, wondering what's happening with them now, wishing I could look in on their world again and learn more about the story. The good news is that the ending of this book gives the strong impression that the story will continue. Yippee!!

"Catching On Fire" is ostensibly a paranormal romantic mystery but in the meat of the book it's all about the characters. The author writes characters expertly. Although they're not real people, they become real to you as you read. That is the true gift of a talented novelist, to make the reader care and worry about their characters. I can't wait to read more from this artist and and I await the next instalment of this (probable) series. 

(EDIT: I talked to the author, Sue Knott and she confirms that this first book is part of a trilogy!! She begs our indulgence in a little more time, she is writing as fast as her little fingers will allow her and she says the next in the series will hopefully be available by the end of the year. Yippee!!!)

I'll probably be back with art as I've been ridiculously lazy in that arena lately. Forgive me, I'm having so much trouble getting back into the swing of things. I'm hoping my new Twinks arrive today or tomorrow and all the color inspires me to get my tush in gear. LOL.

Talk soon??

Best,
