About Me

 

My name is Gail Briggs. I am 43 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.

Exorcism of the Species Blurb

 

Humanity is in danger of extinction from an otherworldly race of savage creatures hell-bent on revenge for their banishment from the physical realm eons ago.

They aim to take back what was once theirs, the physical realm, by culling the human race. They are coming through an open portal into this realm in their thousands and spreading across the whole country, waiting for the signal to begin their invasion.

It’s a race against time as Elena has no choice but to join forces with her enemy and enter the forsaken realm to search for the lost items needed to re-enact the banishment of so long ago.

Join them on their journey through the forsaken realm. Travel with them as they battle creatures, tackle obstacles, and seek to avoid letting the savageness of the realm change their very souls.

Each group seeks the means to exorcise the other species from existence.

Only one race can survive.

 

My Review

This was an excellent sequel to Fabled Enigma which I reviewed some time ago when it still had its initial working title of Stealth.  I am now waiting for the 3rd book in this series as I need to know what happens next.  The content of this second book is much darker and more gruesome than that of Stealth 1 but it is all essential to the plot.  Gail has a very fertile and imaginative mind.  The characters continue to develop throughout this second book and it was good to catch up with them again, it was like meeting up with old friends.  There is a lot of action in this novel and a large portion of it is very similar in style to the Indiana Jones adventures.  I particularly like the way the different realms affect the humans and paranormal beings, you will have to read it yourself to see what I mean by this.

This book has a very strong plot with adventure and action, paranormal activity, and a variety of relationships.  The character’s are colourful and real and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

There are some minor editing issues so unfortunately this does mean that I cannot with all honesty give the book a full five stars so Exorcism of the Species gets 4 and a half from me.

Put it on your to read list.
