The Collective by R S Williams **Blog Tour Review & Giveaway**
I am so happy to start the blog tour off to celebrate the publication of R S Willams' latest book, The Collective. You can also win a signed paperback copy of the the book- full details on how to enter are at the foot of this post. (UK only). Before we get to my thoughts on the book, here's a little bit about it:
Matilda Gregson never knew a world outside hers existed, that is until Harvey comes along and shows her something beyond her imagination. All that is on Tilly’s mind is finishing her dissertation, getting her degree, and spending time with her friends before the end of the school year.
But everything changes when she meets Jenny, an agent of a secret society, and nothing prepared either of them for the adventure they are about to endure. Under the pressures of surviving, their friendship grows and they find friends in the most unlikely of places, and betrayal just around the corner.
Will they both be able to stop him before he tears Jenny’s society to the ground?
The Collective has a strong opening where you quickly realise that all is not as it might appear. A fast moving adventure, it draws on fantasy and romance to keep the story moving forward. The changes in time zones are handled smoothly and it is quite easy to buy into the premise and enter into the spirit of the story. The plot is complicated but well handled and carries you through twists and turns to the end.
I enjoyed the two main female characters,Tilly and Jenny, who strike up a friendship in the most unlikely of situations. It is interesting to see the story through their viewpoints and to see each one through the other's eyes. The story certainly kept me on my toes and I did not foresee the ending at all. I am sure there is more to come.
In short: strong characters and a twisty-turny plot make for a great adventure story.
