New Crypto fiction novels

Dark Ness by Tabitca Cope
A tale of murder, myth, monsters and a bit of magic set in modern day Loch Ness.Several university researchers meet at the Loch, all pursuing their own research. They end up banded together to help the Laird of the area and his friends fight a real enemy, but who are these men who look so alike, why do they want the laird? and is there a monster in the Loch?. The body count is rising,is the monster responsible ? In the end it all depends on a few people to save the world from an old enemy.
It was one of those books you can't stop reading, but don't want it to end........
A belter of a book set in the beautiful Loch Ness
it's an exciting story that pulls you along from the start, sucking you into the mystery and making you want to just keep on reading. The characterisation is great, I love the protagonist, a feisty woman who just can't help getting involved in the adventure around her. I would thoroughly recommend this and can't wait for the next book in the series.

Dark Wear  by Tabitca Cope

Among the ancient cathedral, old colleges and the countryside roam strange creatures, modern day witches and the 5th Reich .The result is murder, mayhem, a search for a holy relic, a journey through an ancient deadly tunnel and a loss of loved ones. The new laird and the knights meet up again with Laura Loomis and her friends and once again they find themselves facing strangeness and danger.

By the successful author of Dark Ness
Dark wear as the title suggests is set in Durham. It’s the second book in the trilogy following on from Dark Ness but can be read as a separate volume.

The story is a good one, and it builds slowly and firmly towards an explosive ending. You will not be disappointed, between witches, the Fifth Reich, Big Animals and even bigger "creatures." I was frightened, I laughed out loud and I did have a wee cry during this book. I do not hesitate to recommend it, there is something in it for everyone. A Darned good Yarn!
Rarely do i give a book 5 stars but i found i enjoyed this one even more than the first.
