Donnabella, Reviewer Unchained Melody:  ‘I absolutely loved this book, it has everything a girl could want. It was hot [fanning self constantly] and surprising, you won’t guess the twist, it was also so beautiful that I had tears pouring down my face I have never cried so much reading a book ever, and the ending was brilliant and left me feeling that there ‘IS’ hope in the world.’

‘This book was AMAZING. I normally don’t write reviews, but this series deserves a rave review from me. Love triangles, mermaids, a powerful, captivating (sometimes exasperating) protagonist….what more do you need?? The main men are so hot you want to melt and the supporting characters are just as lovely and capture your heart. S.K. Munt outdid herself with this series and The Marked Ones is just the tip of the iceberg…dive in and enjoy ‘
-Malika Kirksey

‘I was aware before reading this adult mermaid book that many readers were fans of this series because of the sexy scenes and hunky heroes throughout. But truth be told, although those scenes will make your Kindle smoke, my favorite part of this book was the dialogue.’-Emm Cole

‘This reviewer is left the feeling that this novel is merely a knock-up and there are greater things to come from S.K. Munt. She is an up and coming author that fans of this genre would do well to keep an eye on.’
-Howard Parsons

‘The author has a knack for painting a picture with words that allows your imagination to take you into the story. This is a must read!’
-Amazon Customer

‘The author does a wonderful job of pulling the reader in and keeping them there to the very end.’

This book will take you outside of yourself and make the world fall away. I’ve had many pretty things to say about Emm Cole’s other two novels but The Short Life Of Sparrows is more of an experience than a story. I usually like to share amusing gif’s with my bigger reviews but for this one, I’m going to paste imagery which recreates the haunting beauty this novel inspired within my imagination. I even felt more romantic, reading this, like the life between the pages could be transferred to my own existence and make it more.

There is nothing generic about this novel. Every character, every scene, every plot twist is utterly unique and following the adventure felt like having one of those really good stretches after having sat in the same position for so long, turning page after page of cliches before finding something that makes you shiver deliciously. It’s seductive, whimsical, gripping and oh so beautiful that it will make you ache.

As an author I must admit that I’m green with jealousy over Emm’s incredible use of descriptive language. She just has a way of painting a picture with a magic brush that the rest of us could never wield with such understated, creative elegance. And I assume that this would have been a very easy task for her with a storyline so unlike any other! She’s taken such a stock-standard subject, like witches, and put this fantastical spin on it so that you end up feeling like she’s gone out on a mythology branch of her own creation and I suppose that it exactly what she’s done.

The village where the novel is set is like no other. This story is dark, very dark at times and then ethereally light at others and yet the setting is just so damn unique that it offers yet another level for the imagination to roll about on. Imagine if Tim Burton and Dr Suess painted a canvas together- that’s what I saw in the Seer’s village, where the witches have the ability to change their houses and affect their environment to suit their needs, provided they don’t mind offering a sacrifice in return.

It’s just so creative! There’s this magical atmosphere to it which is almost consistently touched by foreboding and then you have these two sects of people existing separately, but in close proximity to one another and safeguarding the human race which they have completely detached themselves from. The seer’s are the witches, and the Nightbloods are their, well I’ll use ‘mates’ for lack of a better word because although their lives are woven together by unbreakable threads, they can never be cinched tightly enough to become one. Both sects must make use of their magical gifts, but if they get too close, all hell breaks loose. And when an ‘Ordinary’ (human) comes to live amongst these eccentric people, the s*** really does hit the cauldron and a whole lot of mysteries suddenly unfurl to stage a very romantic and often painful romance.

TSLOS is sexy and haunting. Exciting and yet homey and every single character is captivating, especially the three main characters. I love the fact that the heroine Call isn’t some Mary-Jane, she’s sassy and bitter and quick to lose her temper, and the two male protagonists (Okay so one’s a sexy-ass antagonist. Woot! Go the bad boys!) are so real that they practically peel themselves off the page.

5 stars are not enough! Read this if you’re in to Paranormal romance, Fantasy romance, Fantasy, Romance, Dark Fantasy or you know- Books. Move this to the top of your TBR and watch this lady very closely because she’s going to open minds and rock worlds 🙂

Extract from The Harlequin Doll SK Munt

Excerpt from The Harlequin Doll S.K Munt

‘Mr Harlequin!’

The entire room seemed to shift to watch a girl in a sexy red corset, French knickers and blood-coloured leather boots run onto the mat, her Betty Boop eyes wide with anxiety on her powdered face. ‘Mr Harlequin! You can’t start the show yet!’

‘What?!’ Jarrah’s bark made half of the room flinch, Elle included. The fury twisting his features was as authentic as Elle’s father’s retraction-request face. ‘Why ever not?!’

The girl, who looked like an extra from Rocky Horror only sexier, leaned on the Ringmaster’s side and waved her fingers to the house. There were a few chuckles and quite a few more wolf-whistles when she faced the front and revealed the fact that her corset only reached her ribs, and that her voluptuous chest was bare above it. Elle’s hand went to her lips. Nudity in the first minute? Were they going to have an orgy for the finale?

‘It’s your brother!’ she cried, holding up her hands comically. ‘He’s supposed to be on after Amelia’s knife-throwing act, but he’s getting a blow job out the back from some groupie, and told me to tell you that she’s a virgin, has no idea what she’s doing- and that he may need an extra fifteen minute buffer to get her on track!’

The laughter was slow to start, but those who laughed did so heartily while those who realised they’d underestimated the term ‘Risqué’ on the bill stared at the stage; silent and agog.

‘I don’t care if he’s got the Dallas Cowgirls back there- you tell him to get backstage and warming up, or I’ll throttle him!’

‘I’m not doing that!’ The girl stepped back, shaking her head. ‘No way!’

Jarrah looked fit to be tied. ‘What? I’m your employer!’ His acrylic fangs affected his voice with a slight lisp. ‘You’ll do as I say!’

But Shelby put her hands on her hips and lifted her ski-bump nose primly. ‘Archer is my employer as well, Jarrah… and he just offered me the promotion of a lifetime if I stall for him.’

‘And that would be?’

Shelby pressed her folded hands to her cheeks and smiled dreamily out at the crowd. ‘He said that if the virgin can’t learn on her feet, that he’ll let me finish the job!’ She cocked her hip to the laughing audience and shimmied sexily. ‘Don’t you just love overtime?’

Beside her, Anya groaned and buried her face in her hands, but Elle couldn’t help but giggle at the bawdy, fluffy banter. She was about to lean forward to hear what Jarrah’s response was going to be over the resounding laughter, when the ringmaster reached out, took the girl’s neck in his massive hands- and wrenched it until her head snapped sickeningly to the left and beyond. The crack was so loud in the stunned silence that Elle thought she was going to black out, and when the ringmaster released her body, letting it slump lifelessly to the ground beneath his feet, bile rose in the back of her throat.

What? What? WHAT? That was FAKE right? By why is her head like that? Oh god, is she holding her breath? She actually looks dead!

‘Like I was saying…’ The ringmaster motioned to the two leather-clad clowns waiting on the edge of the ring and they rushed forward and began to drag the body away by the feet after their boss had grandly stepped over it. ‘I don’t like it when people ignore the rules, and I don’t like being interrupted.’ He tilted the brim of his hat to the crowd with the chrome carved skull at the end of his walking stick, and winked to his astonished, captive audience. ‘So don’t smoke, don’t touch anything, don’t molest the staff, don’t take photographs and whatever you do… don’t offer my brother sexual favours because you never know where he’s been and if you did, you wouldn’t like it,’ he lowered his stick. ‘Oh and turn your cell phones off people- no one on Facebook actually cares about you.’ He swung his walking stick and grinned. ‘Now… Enjoy the show!’

The lights went out again and this time, chills crawled across Elle’s skin. One blink, one flicker, and the stage was there again and Jarrah Harlequin had vanished into an actual puff of smoke.

Okay no seriously… HOW?

The Harlequin Doll releases this week!

They’ll do anything to love her…

Elle Carey has never felt like she has ever truly belonged to anything; not her family, her body, her career as a journalist following in Editor-In-Chief father’s footsteps- none of it. By day she goes through the motions, reporting at her father’s side, playing nice with her over-achieving sister and pretending to be ashamed of her family’s heritage as her father is, but for Elle, it’s all a lie- she exists only to fly and has gone great lengths to keep her passion for the silks and trapeze a secret.

But when The Harlequin Bros spectacular comes to town, Elle gets the opportunity of a lifetime- one interview, one audition- one chance to live. She knows instantly that both of the beautiful Romani brothers, Archer and Jarrah Harlequin have the potential to steal her breath, but what she doesn’t know is that one is destined to do exactly that, and that the other will stop at nothing to make sure that the curse comes to pass as quickly as possible, yet again.

Elle expects to return to the paper afterwards with a few fond memories and maybe even an exclusive into the dark underbelly of the circus, but her destiny is not to see her name as a byline, but in the obituaries.

It is brother against brother, light against dark, demon against demon, temptation against love in this passionate and beautifully cruel story about the corruption of innocence and the illusions we weave to hide our true selves from one another.
