(Free E–pub) [Awakening] BY Sharon J. Bolton

Doctor Sleep lRetty disturbing read on manyevels You have a story that includes snakes this alone made it hard for me to read at night alone religious fervor stories of various animal attacks and finally the revelation behind what caused Clara s disfigurement Honestly if the story had moved just a ittle uickly and had moved just a ittle uickly and had a Mythological Beasts Turned Me Gay: Three Book Collection: (Mythology Erotica) little extra fluff out Iikely would have given this 5 stars This was a uniue read for me as I really can t recall experiencing a thriller revolving around snakes I was impressed with the character development and growth Clara experienced from beginning to end I didn t connect with her immediately and I enjoyed warming to her as the story drew on I was a ittle disappointed in how there the story drew on I was a ittle disappointed in how there t seem to be resolution in one of her relationships at the end There was something thrown in at the climax that was never resolved fully which ticked me off a bit Here you have this strong female character who has never depended on anyone getting all wishy washy on me at the end Overall another strong plot from SJ Bolton but Lacey Flint still is her reigning female character in my opinion This is a story about a country vet although because it is written by the scarily brilliant Sharon Bolton it is as far from the cozy blandness of James Herriot as it s possible to beBecause of a childhood accident Clara Benning suffered a facial disfigurement and has subseuently tried to keep her human interactions to a minimum However she is a highly talented and dedicated vet Clara Scouts lives in a remote village on the DorsetDevon border but the semblance of rural idyll is soon shattered when the village is infested by snakes not just native grass snakes and adders but a highly venomous tropical snake too The whole phenomenon seems related to aarge The Organ Grinders local family the Witchers a bizarre religious cult and the burning down of the parish church in 1958 It seems impossible for Clara to know whom to trust neither her neighbour a senior policeman nor aocal renowned herpetologistAfter a series of unforeseen plot twists the story builds to a thrilling climax during a severe storm which has cut off all power to the village and blocked the access roadsThis novel bears all the hallmarks of classic Sharon Bolton an unusual and endearing heroine a remote and secretive ocation haunted by the PAST A COMPLEX YET CREDIBLE PLOT a complex yet credible plot plenty of moments of high drama In a strange way it s also made me sympathetic towards snakes Rating Clarification 375 StarsRECIPE FOR A MODERN GOTHIC THRILLERTake 1 seriously sweet sleeping babyadd 1 2 ethal Papuan Tiapan snakesfold in 1 decrepit old spooky house in the bucolic English countrysideadd 1 pissed off Mute Swanand top with a cupful of seriously deranged snake handling wackjobsRead without ceasing for 1 7 hours time varies by cook and VOILA you have one seriously happy reader Another great book by SJ Bolton this one is really a 35 star rating for me but I don t have that option and it s closer to a 4 star than a 3 star book As always I can connect well with the characters in the book especially Clara who is central to the book I find that it s easy to read her books and the pace of the book cracks along The research done into snakes for this book is impressive and I am now fairly well versed in many things snak. Dbijają się od muru milczenia Nawet gdy morderca uderza znowuClara musi przełamać swoje własne ęki by razem z policjantem i ekscentrycznym ekspertem herpetologiem zaangażować się w śledztwo które staje się coraz bardziej niebezpieczne i coraz bardziej osobisteI odsłania przerażającą historię nienawiści i zems. AwakeningAt them on TV and only a madman would even suggest I go into a reptile houseSo knowing this book has snakes as a main character whatever made me read it The answer is simple SJ Bolton I ve read two of her tension filled books this year Sacrifice and *Blood Harvest and she s become one of my fave authors Snakes or not I wasn t going to miss out *Harvest and she s become one of my fave authors Snakes or not I wasn t going to miss out a thirdThat said I could have bailed early on when view spoilerone house was infested with 39 of the buggers hide spoiler Another excellent novel by SJ Bolton Some other reviews of this book find this novel a Silver in the Wood little slow paced but I really enjoyed it I do enjoy fast paced novels but when a book is written so well I am also happy to take my time and enjoy it with noonging for it to finish In this novel a vet named Clara Benning who was disfigured as a child and has become a bit of a reclusive due to her disfigurement The small town where she ives starts experiencing strange happenings with snakes invading the homes of many residents Clare is called on to help where people have been attacked a A very enjoyable murder mystery 45 starsClara is a wildlife vet who has hidden herself away in a rural village in England and avoids people as much as possible This is because she is scarred on one side of her face and is sick of people staring judging and being horrible to herStrange things start happening in her village and people are dying which forces Clara to confront her fears and her foesThis book is not without it flaws a bit rambling in places and somewhat far fetched but I really enjoyed it and the narrator was very good I iked Clara even though she could be very trying at timesWarning do not read this if you don t ike snakescreepy Absolutely oved this slick and vividly portrayed thriller I was highly invested in the characters and thought about them for some time after finished the book the main characters after finished the book The main characters well developed from the beautiful but damaged Clara the mysterious Mr North and the hunky and capable Matt I could have gone on reading about all of them forever I appreciated how well researched this work was The reptilian imagery was so well done it will make you wary of what could be slithering around over in the corner You will definite This was my first standalone novel by Sharon Bolton and also my PIFM READ for our group A Good Thriller for the month of JanuaryI m finding this one difficult to review On one hand it wasn t as uick moving as her Lacey Flint series as you can tell by the fact it took me 10 days to finish it on the other the story was intriguing and compelling enough to have me keep pushing forward due to the encouragement of friends who have read this before me It definitely picked up in the second halfClara Benning is a vet who was disfigured as a child and is therefore reclusive Living in a small town in England the village begins experiencing very bizarre scenarios with snakes invading the homes of many residents The neighbors call in Clara as an expert to comment on the weird happenings and at first she is able to explain away some of the behavior of the The Second Cure large groups of snakes found But people start dying and things get odd as the days pass Will Clara and the police be able to solve who is truly behind these attacksThis ended up being a ?óżeczku dziecka jest wąż A Clara o wężach wie wszystkoLecz to dopiero początek Węże atakują w kolejnych domach A potem umiera pierwszy człowiek Ale Clara wie że to nie wąż był zabójcąW wiosce narasta strach Ożywają budzące grozę pogłoski o pradawnym rytuale i tragicznym pożarze sprzedat Pytania Clary Dear ReaderI l be the first to admit that noI didn t do my homework on this one If I had known beforehand that snakes played a huge part in this storyyesyou read that correctly then I m not sure I d have read it Why did I buy it I hear you ask Simply because it was written by the wordsmith that is SJ Bolton Do I regret my impulsive purchase Not in the The Sorcerer's Apprentice leastas believe if or not I found this story very interesting and deeply compelling Clara Benninga wildlife vetlives in a small villageunder the radarpreferring the company of species of the fouregged variety rather than the two Disfigured due to a childhood accidentshe has carved out an existence rather than the Eagle's Gate life that any twenty something should beiving Strange incidents rattle her sedate routine with the appearance of snakessome harmlesssome extremely poisonousfound in the homes of her neighbours When the deaths of two elderly people are investigatedeyebrows are raised when it s discovered that their deaths were caused not by a snake bite but byClara s help is sought and so begins a wonderful adventure involving incidents from the pasta ceremony that took place in a church in 1958 and the myriad conseuences of such This was an intriguing storybeautifully told with highly descriptive passages that swept the reader from their own home and supplanted them in the depths of the mysterious events as Clara and Matt delved deeper into memories and histories that some believedwere best eft forgotten What of the Witcher clanthe Reverend Fain Was there an Ulfred Witcher born into this community and if sowhere does he reside today Is he the one responsible for the recent deathsis it his face Clara has seenhis strange voice she has heard muttering indecipherable nothingsor is there someone elsewith dark and shadowy motivesa master puppeteer at work This was An Enthralling Storyone That Urged enthralling storyone that urged onwards to discover what exactly was happening and why Yessnakes play a pivotal role in this story but you should not et that deter you from what isa highly satisfying and intriguing read Highly recommended This was an interesting tale of murder fanatical religious fervour and exotic poisonous snakes in England no essThe pace is a slow methodical build up to the final moment of truth Sharon J Bolton s writing is so engrossing that it s a pleasure sit back and watch The Events UnfoldWhen There Is events unfoldWhen there is infestation of Adders Grass Snakes and the odd Taipan in a small English village Clara Benning the reclusive vet of an animal hospital is called in to investigate the cause of the infestationElderly people are dying and the cause of death seems to be snake bits At the same time peoples houses are being infested by snakes As hard as Clara tries she s finding it almost impossible to understand why the snakes are acting so out of characterClara with help from an eminent snake expert and a neighbour who happens to be a police officer starts to untangle the mystery What unfolds is a story religious fanaticism greed and than a touch of madnessWith out a doubt Sharon J Bolton has a rare gift and this book is one of her giftsHighly
