According to the Bible, God created the world in seven days, but what if the beginning happened before Humankind documented it for posterity?
Humans didn’t see everything clearly, because they didn’t understand. They turned away in fear, forgot the beings that had come to Earth and, over time, the Seraphim became nothing but a legend, a bedtime story. Corruption and greed, bred from hatred and evil, spread across the face of the earth as Humans evolved and developed. It was in this filth, and amongst the seven deadly sins, that Tabitha Morgan was born and kept alive, hidden in plain sight from the darkness.
For seventeen years, Tabitha thrived under her grandmother’s guardianship, living a normal life and not knowing the truth about her heritage or the roots from which she came.
That all changes the day a handsome stranger named Nathan walks into her life. Will the ancient secrets he holds be enough to earn her trust? Is it the Light, or does Darkness await them beyond The Northern Gate?

I am completely in love with this book! The cover is what truly caught me….I love the tree and the crescent….it’s just incredible. This is the third book I read by J.C. Clarke and I absolutely loved it. I mean…I loved it enough to go stalk the author for the next book, so that says something, right?

The Northern Gate is the story of Tabitha getting her wings. She’s an ordinary girl living in an ordinary village….or so she thinks. As her Nana is passing from one world to the next, Tabitha finds herself enthralled by the strange but HOT man that keeps turning up.

Natanael has been charged with Tabitha’s protection. As her soul’s mate, he knows more than he can tell her about the dark forces swirling down on them.

The characters are refreshing in their honesty – this isn’t one of those novels where they meet and fall passionately in love and it’s happily ever after. Tabitha definitely makes Natanael work for it. She’s an independent, equal and wants everyone to know it.

This book is written in an incredibly beautiful style and I honestly believe that J.C. Clarke was MEANT to write this style. It’s absolutely wonderful. I like the mythology that is weaved in and the magic isn’t so over the top that it is unbelievable. I’m so excited for the next book!

Deep down I enjoyed this life, it was fun seeing the different towns. Seven months on the road, five months back at the yard. Day in, day out. Nothing changed except the weather and the accents of the fair-goers.
Until tonight. That’s when I see you standing there, looking back at me when my eyes find you. Even in the dimming light of the day and the harsh flashing bulbs, I see you blush before you look down, looking anywhere except back at me. A smirk creeps onto my face with my thoughts: you look beautiful in your baggy jeans and vest top.
The light captures your black hair shielding your face. I know I need to grab a shower before I head into the pay box, but I can’t seem to tear myself away from watching you.

This book is just…wow.I honestly had no idea what I was getting into when I picked up this book. I had been given an ecopy by a friend who said “YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK!” Ok then….

This novella is short, sweet and intensely beautiful. It’s tragic and wonderful and I ugly cried all over the place. I didn’t immediately catch who the narrator was and I LOVED that. So much so that I’m not going to tell you the catch – you have to pick it up for yourself! I loved the use of a carnival/fair for a setting. It was unusual and made things more interesting. JC Clarke handles this story with grace and beauty and I just absolutely adore it.

The characters caught me from the first moment and took me along on their journey and I’m still not sure I’m over it!

His Princess was a little bit eclectic, a lot of eccentric, and a big time potty mouth. She was outgoing and loud, but held her friends and family close to her heart. She ranted about everything wrong in the world, yet her wild passion made him fall hard and fast. Life gave him the middle finger when she opened his eyes to the beauty around him—and right in front of him.
Her Prick-a-Doodle-Do was an uptight businessman through and through. He never saw the fun in anything and she knew right from the start she could have fun with this man and get him to see things differently. He made her see she didn’t have to always be alone, even when surrounded by people. A knack of bringing out the best in her made her fall for him, even if she didn’t want to admit it to herself.
Both were raised in ‘high society’, but where one was guided by the rules, the other had fun going against them. Though he was her new boss, she didn’t give two hoots about it so when she was given an opportunity to express her views about a certain subject, she readily agreed.
It’s now her personal mission to make Bossman’s life a little harder, while experiencing a little fun along the way, of course.
Because . . . if it’s a pain in the ass, then you’re doing it wrong.

 

Holy Crap. Seriously. This is my first foray with the incredible JC Clarke and I am so sad that I haven’t been along for the ride sooner! This book is full of sarcasm, wit and all those things that you wish you could say but never do. J.C. Clarke NAILS the voice of Princess and OMG Prick-a-Doodle-Doo is hilarious. He never seems to know what to say but then something will come flying out that just nails Princess to a wall. It’s amazeballs.This wasn’t the book I was expecting but it was definitely the book I needed. It points out all the things that I hated without knowing I hated in romance and erotic novels. Princess is the girl we all are inside and Prick is The Man – the one we love to hate.

Easily one of my favorite books. I’m so incredibly excited for the next book in the series!

 

An author? Yeah, well I’m getting there, hopefully.
I’m not really one for blabbing about myself, but I can give you a few starters, if you’re interested.
I’m a mum of four kids, two girls and two boys and I’m married to a wonderful man who puts up with my crap.
We live in an area near Southampton (UK) called the New Forest, which is very beautiful. There’s ponies, donkeys and wild deer and cattle all over the place, so it makes it very interesting living here at times.
I design for a living, but I am self taught, so I have a long way to go.
I’m a very down to earth thirty year old and yeah, I dabble with writing.
Looking for ways to stalk me…hehe…
