The development of characters from the previous book is marked, particularly Lottie and Vicky. Vicky has to confront the full extent of Dex’s deviousness when she realises he is already on the island with the now pregnant woman he left her for. It’s a testament to Terry Tyler’s skill in creating characters that I became so involved with the story. I wanted to shake some sense into Vicky and do serious harm to Dex and Wedge. Lottie has had to grow up quickly and leave adolescence behind, becoming a capable young woman less dependent on her mother, able to think and act for herself.
I love the setting, especially so because I’m familiar with the island, and how the history of the place is woven into the story. And I love Terry Tyler’s writing style. Each chapter comes from a particular character’s point of view, giving the best insight into each of their thoughts, personalities and reactions to those around them, coming from their own distinct voices. The exception to this (apart from some of the original Project Renova members who make another appearance) is Wedge, the leader of the bikers who are living apart from the main group on Lindisfarne. His part is written in the third person, he’s the wild card, the loose cannon, refusing to conform and living by his own rules.
Imaginative and extremely well written, this is a compelling follow up to Tipping Point. There are totally unexpected twists and new threads added which deepen the plot further. I can’t imagine where the story is going but I’m so looking forward to the final part. The cover is amazing, I love the dark, threatening feel and the almost abstract depiction of the Abbey ruins.
I chose to read and review Lindisfarne based on a digital copy of the book supplied by the author.
Having read the first in the series, I was itching to know what would happen next, and, if I’m honest, was wondering if the author could keep up the tension and the pace. This doesn’t disappoint. As with the previous book, the settings, the characterisation, the situations are all so well-drawn that it is easy to become totally immersed – which is what a good book should do. And this is a really good book.
The character development is so well done – completely plausible; it’s easy to see how Lottie has become strong and independent, how Vicky has begun to trust herself more, and how everyone still has their insecurities and issues that prevent them from making the right decisions. As with the last book, these characters are real, and they are vulnerable and they make mistakes.
What works so well though is the way that the changes in society, in the world, have allowed people to reveal their true selves. There’s no need to pretend anymore, and sometimes those true colours aren’t what you think.
Another page turner, definitely recommended. So looking forward to the next in the series.
