My second post of the day is a review on the blog tour of the fabulous Mime by Chrissey Harrison. This is a fabulous, creepy, gripping supernatural thriller and I didn’t want it to end!
book blurb & info

Enlisting the help of his (only) employee, Samantha, he quickly identifies the culprit a demonic mime artist whose invisible creations are fatally real.

I loved this so much! From the moment I read the blurb I knew I had to read this and I’m delighted to say I was right – and it is fab!
Elliot owns and reports for Weird News along with his employee, Samantha. Always on the look out for weird, supernatural things to write about, Elliot is intrigued when an unexplained death happens near his office. But as this is followed by another, he realises there’s more to these deaths that first thought. On the hunt to find out more, he finds himself witness to something unexplainable, giving him the kick he needs to delve deeper.
What he discovers is beyond comprehension, and leads to him and Sam being sucked into a world of demon hunting, hidden libraries, intriguing characters, secrets and more….
Honestly, this is fantastic!! If you’re a fan of supernatural thrillers then you need to check this out! Although this is a long book, I was engrossed all the way through and didn’t want to put it down…..still wanting more when I came to the end!
I loved all the characters, each with their own back story which we come to learn. I thoroughly enjoyed the fact that there is a bit of a romance in this too, which had me really wanting to see two of our characters get together! Gabriel and Liam are both fantastic, and I’m sure there’s much more for us to learn about them in coming books (eeek!). The Mime is such a brilliant character; creepy and evil as hell…..
Harrison has done a superb job of bringing us some imaginative, strange and intriguing deaths caused by the Mime and his invisible weapons! I literally had no clue what death would happen next, and Harrison continuously surprised me and blew my mind throughout. There are some absolutely brilliant twists in this; some I had a slight suspicion of and others were completely out of the blue.
The whole plot is just truly fantastic, intriguing, mind blowing and gripping – you can’t not be sucked into this book. The settings are creepy; secret libraries, crypts, ruins and more; and Harrison describes everything wonderfully, allowing you to play the whole story out in your minds eye. This book would make a fantastic horror movie; one that I would definitely watch!
Honestly, if you’re looking for your next supernatural read full of unexplainable deaths, demons, secrets and portals to hell, that will keep you completely engaged and on the edge of your seat, then check this out! Horror and supernatural fans will love this. Highly recommended by me. I can’t wait to see what the next book in the series brings us!!

What can you expect from my books? Monsters, magic, action and adventure, and fragile human characters trying to muddle through as best they can. They make mistakes and bad choices sometimes, and they have to learn to recognise their own strengths and weaknesses and turn to their friends and loved ones for help and support.
My debut novel, “Mime”, released June 2020. Working on this book has been an epic 10 year journey learning how to be a writer. Although Mime was my first project, it has routinely been on the back burner while I worked on other projects. You can discover the published ones in the books section of my website, and novelette “The Star Coin Prophecy” is available as a free download for subscribers.

At the moment I mostly wear my writer hat, my designer and my crafter hat. I also used to wear my film maker hat when producing movies with my amazing colleagues over at The Great Escape.
