Happy Publication Day to Jo Fenton! Her new thriller, Revelation is out and I have the opportunity to share my thoughts. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway!
A student, Rick, is found dead in halls of residence.
His friends get caught up in the aftermath: Dan, who was in love with Rick; and Becky, who is in love with Dan.
Their fraught emotions lead them into dark places – particularly a connection to a mysterious Kabbalistic sect.
Will Becky discover who killed Rick in time to save her best friend?
I’m a big fan of Jo Fenton’s writing, so when I heard about Revelation, I knew it was a must read. I was not disappointed at all! This is a short read, but it still packs a punch and I enjoyed it very much.
Jo Fenton‘s writing is always filled with emotion. The story revolves around two students, Becky and Daniel, who are in despair over their emotions. The tone of this book is dark and ominous at times, which reeled me right in.
I love the POV switches between Becky and Daniel because it really let me into the heads of these two characters. Their pain is expertly written and I felt it from them both.
I almost wish this book was a little longer because the mystery could have been a smidge stronger at that point. It was still compelling, just not as thrilling as I wanted it to be.
I still really enjoyed this book and am still a fan of Jo Fenton‘s writing. I recommend giving this one a shot! The writing is wonderful and it is entertaining.
*I received a free copy of this book from Rachel’s Random Resources in exchange for an honest review on the blog tour. All opinions are my own.*
Jo Fenton grew up in Hertfordshire. She devoured books from an early age, particularly enjoying adventure books, school stories and fantasy. She wanted to be a scientist from aged six after being given a wonderful book titled “Science Can Be Fun”. At eleven, she discovered Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer, and now has an eclectic and much loved book collection cluttering her home office.
Jo combines an exciting career in Clinical Research with an equally exciting but very different career as a writer of psychological thrillers.
When not working, she runs (very slowly), and chats to lots of people. She lives in Manchester with her husband, two sons, a Corgi and a tankful of tropical fish. She is an active and enthusiastic member of two writing groups and a reading group.
