Death’s Executioner

Death’s Executioner by Charlotte E English.

Amazon Review:


To catch a monster, send a killer.
Murderers and monsters alike stalk the snow-drowned streets of Ekamet.

When nightmares creep out of the dark, distant past, who can face them?
It will take the eldritch powers of the spirit-witch. The ruthless cruelty of the undead. And the monstrous implacability of the Malykant at his best — and his worst.

But when it costs everything they can give, can a trio of killers win against nightmare?
If you can’t beat the dark, the only way through is to join it…

Konrad Savast returns in four final, brutal cases in the collected Malykant Mysteries.


Amazing.  Me, who doesn’t like short stories, nor do I normally read of ghosts or spirits etc.. really liked these books!  And will admit that I am sorry they have ended.

If you like mystery and murder etc and want something a bit “different” these books are for you!

The first book I sent for was a mistake!  I didn’t know it was 4 short stories!  But for a change, the mistake worked in my favor and I had a really enjoyable trilogy to read.  You might want to try book one and see what you think!!

Amazon Review


To catch a killer, send a monster…
But what if a monster isn’t enough?
Shadows gather, winter deepens, and Assevan falls farther into the dark.
Pitted against monsters and men, Konrad faces deeper challenges. Darker foes.
Some can rival even the Malykant’s power.
Pushed beyond his endurance, challenged beyond his sanity, at long last Death’s Avenger might need a little help…
Konrad Savast returns for another chilling set of adventures in the second volume of the Malykant Mysteries.


Oh boy! Charlotte E. English has some great imagination!  I still am shocked that I like these books.  First off I don’t like short stories… each book contains 4 stories.  And her characters are certainly original, at least to me!

If you are intending on reading books 2, all I will say about it is :  The ending is a real shocker!! .. on to book 3 !  (I know, not much of a review, but, to be honest I really don’t know how to review these books and not give away anything important!  I guess you will just have to read them yourself!

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.


Publisher : G.P. Putnam’s Sons; (August 14, 2018)
Hardcover : 384 pages
ISBN-10 : 0735219095



Amazon Review


For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life–until the unthinkable happens.

Where the Crawdads Sing is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. Owens reminds us that we are forever shaped by the children we once were, and that we are all subject to the beautiful and violent secrets that nature keeps.


This books was one of those stories about someone and the hardships she went through growing up in the swamps, while at the same time becoming exceptionally knowledgeable about the swamps and all the nature within.

While sad at times it really is a good read.  I feel like I am last on the list of people who have read this book.. I hope not.. and I do suggest it to anyone who wants a heartfelt feeling while reading it.
