First meet Gail,

She is an avid reader of forensic crime novels, horrors and thrillers. She studied parapsychology as a fun subject in the summer 2002.

From the Author,

My name is Gail Briggs. I am 44 years old and a mother of three. I live in Manchester, in the North West of England.

I love to write, but bringing up children, studying at university, and running a business have always gotten in the way, until now. I found that, once my children were old enough that they did not need me anymore, I had a lot of spare time on my hands. So, in 2011 I decided to enrol on a creative writing course with The Writers Bureau.
Joining a creative writing group on Facebook, with other students from the Writers Bureau, was a very good decision for me. We all support and help each other in ways that I have not encountered anywhere else.
 They have been invaluable to me, and I thank each and every one of them for the encouragement and support they have shown me. However, I have now left that group, and I hope they go from strength to strength.
The type of stories I love to read, and write, are supernatural stories. I write from both imagination and personal experience. I have advanced qualifications in parapsychology and have been on over 30 paranormal investigations where, yes, we encountered many spirits. It is an extremely interesting field of both study and experience, but is very difficult to write about. I will not shy away from the difficulties though, I am more determined than ever to do something when difficulties arise.
They’re back.

The reluctant allies, Elena and Thanatos, are back in this final instalment of the Stealth trilogy. Stuck in the Forsaken Realm and separated, they encounter many foes in their search for each other and the way back home.

Having solved the problem of the Xarthian army’s attempt to take control of the Physical Realm, Elena and Thanatos now face their greatest danger yet, the very gateway to damnation itself.

Follow their adventures as they are abandoned by the church, encounter devastation, and are forced to face their worst fears.

This review is from: Forsaken: Stealth series part three (Kindle Edition)
I bought two copies of this book, one to keep, one to share. I am mid story and losing sleep because I do not want to shut my Kindle down until the eyes can no longer stay open. The first two books in the series were the ones I also needed to sprint through, not wanting to stop until Briggs ran out of words.

I found that the use of witchcraft, the rifts in dimensions, the humanity and foibles of even the most blessed are believable and accepted. I will be back to add to this review when I finished the story, but she gets my five star approval as I only review what I finish and I only finish five star books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good 2 Mar 2014

Having not read the others in the serious I started this book with slight trepidation! Thoroughly enjoyed it, read it in 2 days and enjoyed the storyline immensely, so much so that I will read the first 2 books now. If you havn't read any of her books before then I happily say order it now - you wont be disappointed. If you enjoy fantasy books then this is for you.

Thank you Gail for giving us the opportunity to share your incredible imagination with our readers!
Please don't forget to pick up a copy of Forsaken, which can be read as a stand alone. However, once you read one of these books, you'll hunger for more!
