TWILIGHT ( CAWPILE: 6.86)

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

This was the first one I read of the two, the premise particularly intriguing. However, reading it I became a little confused about certain things and personally felt that the plot jumped around a lot before getting to the crux of the novel; some things were either a little too convenient for me or didn’t make sense. I also had to flip back a page or two every so often because I couldn’t always follow what was going on, or how this part of the novel followed on from this other bit. I did find the characters very mysterious though, and the world of the caves very interesting.

FIELD OF BLOOD (CAWPILE: 8.14)

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Having a huge interest in history and ancient/early history, this was the one I was most excited to read. This one I found far easier to follow as the plot didn’t jump around as much, and also feel like I saw and learned more about a couple of the characters. It felt quite atmospheric the way it was written, even though some of the stuff that happens still seemed a little convenient. Although I know that DOORS novels begin from the same starting point but follow different storylines, and that’s the beauty of them – but….this felt somehow too different in terms of what happens to the characters. Despite this I found the story compelling, and kept me hooked all the way through.

Due to personal reasons I didn’t end up reading the third book after finishing FIELD OF BLOOD, which I feel really bad about because the premise was very intriguing to me, however if I pick it up in the future I will be sure to post a review :).

If you’ve read these yourself, what were your thoughts on them? Be sure to leave a comment below (but please avoid giving spoilers).

You have wings. Believe in them and yourself, and you will fly.
