BECOME ENTHRALLED! THE BRINGING DOWN OF THE HAWK
Ted Starling is set on vengeance. He has a plan to bring down the man who killed his father - the father who survived WW 2 against all odds and rebuilt a loving family. The man whose peaceful old age was cruelly snatched away by the hand of conscienceless greed. Ted's plan is brutal and brilliant; to him, the consequences don't matter at all. The Bringing Down of the ... See More Hawk is a beautifully-written, well told story spanning most of Ted Starling's life. Told from several viewpoints, it brings the reader deep into the hearts of its characters, revealing their loves, their dreams,their hopes. From London in the Blitz, to Dunkirk, to the deserts of Egypt and finally to Auckland, New Zealand, the reader follows as the fortunes of the Starlings and their loyal friends rise and fall. Roy Jenner writes passionately, creating characters you can't help caring about. Their lives,their surroundings, are atmospheric, vivid and real. The Hawk is a fantastic read and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Hows my teaser/blurb? I'm not sure if I do a good job of summarizing and drawing the reader in...
Forget the stalker. Forget the creatures lurking in the shadows. Forget the goddam voices in your goddam head. There’s only one thing Alexis needs to focus on right now; finding her mother. But her mother isn’t missing, she’s dead, and Alexis is left orphaned and homeless in a world she no longer understands. On the streets, she is hunted by the things that go bump in the night, and ... See More discovers the one thing her mother kept a secret from her; Alexis is a shape-shifter. Her kind is being hunted to extinction by demons for unknown reasons – reasons bigger than Alexis, bigger than Brisbane, bigger than maybe even the whole world. Her new friend and mentor, a fellow shape-shifter, says its run or die. But Alexis sees things differently; fight or die. It’s time to take a stand and fight back, and demand some answers while they’re at it; about why they’re being hunted, who their father is, and how the hell they’re supposed to survive to see adulthood. Can they escape the prevailing darkness?
It's been sixty years since The Flash and still no one knows what it was or why it caused the apocalypse. The only thing I knew for sure was that I was the only one left still looking for the answers.
How do we act in the face of danger? Well, you'll never know until you face it.
