Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for Clarissa by Karl Drinkwater. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review.
If you’re reading this: HELP! I’ve been kidnapped.
Me and my big sister stayed together after our parents died. We weren’t bothering anybody.
But some mean government agents came anyway, and split us up.
Now I’m a prisoner on this space ship. The agents won’t even say where we’re going.
I hate them.
And things have started to get a bit weird.
Nullspace is supposed to be empty, but when I look out of the skywindows I can see … something. Out there. And I think it wants to get in here. With us.
My name is Clarissa. I am ten years old.
And they will all be sorry when my big sister comes to rescue me.
Karl Drinkwater is one of the authors that I see and immediately sign up to read books by. So, when the opportunity to read and review Clarissa came up, I jumped at the chance.
I absolutely loved this novella. Clarissa feels 10. I love her thoughts and the way her mind works. She feels real and her responses to things were very accurate for her age.
As a big fan of the Lost Solace series, I love these back story novellas that make up the Lost Tales of Solace. They add so much depth to a series I already loved. I recommend reading everything in order, so you can get the full brilliancy of this author and his writing.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Karl Drinkwater writes thrilling SF, suspenseful horror, and contemporary literary fiction. Whichever you pick you’ll find interesting and authentic characters, clever and compelling plots, and believable worlds.
Karl has lived in many places but now calls Scotland his home. He’s an ex-librarian with degrees in English, Classics, and Information Science. He also studied astrophysics for a year at university, surprising himself by winning a prize for “Outstanding Performance”. Karl is an active member of the British Science Fiction Association (BSFA), the Horror Writers Association (HWA), and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).
When he isn’t writing he loves guitars, exercise, computer and board games, nature, and vegan cake. Not necessarily in that order.
