Cold Blood - Andy McNab (book review)

Cold Blood by Andy McNab is the eighteenth book in the Nick Stone series. As this was the first novel by Andy McNab I have read and therefore the first in the Nick Stone series, I was glad that this book you were able to read as a stand alone and didn't need the others prior to knowing what was happening in this novel.

Cold Blood is about a group of amputees who were part of the army making their way to the North Pole. Throughout this book you see how they get the money for the trip to the pole and the troubles that comes along with this, going forward you also see how dangerous being on the ice are because of different countries wanting the oil that comes from the North Pole.  As things get more dangerous for the group other factors come into play which makes this book get more interesting and keeps the reading wanting more.

This is a good fiction book which chapters are really small so it's easy for reading on the go and for those who aren't fast readers and lose interest in reading quickly. I did find this book difficult to keep interested in however with having to re-read some pages at times as it wouldn't stay in my head. Overall, however I did like this book and would like to read more of this series to see if it is only this book or the overall series.

I would recommend Cold Blood by Andy McNab to those who like thriller novels and are wanting something fun to read. This novel would also be good for those who only like to read small amounts at a time as it's easy to pick up and stop when you wish with the chapters really small.

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
