Book Review: RAMPANT by Saskia Walker

Susan's rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rampant is Saskia Walker’s first novel for Harlequin Spice and my first Spice read.

Phewww! There’s nothing like jumping in at the deep end and the author does this with the very first words of Rampant’s prologue. This leaves you in no doubt that you’re reading erotic fiction. Yet, as with all the stories Saskia Walker writes, there’s much more to them than their erotic nature.

Every character in Rampant, whether evil or good, comes alive and the entire story is living and breathing in a sizzling atmosphere. It’s very difficult to put this book down and even when life dictates that you *have* to put your reading aside, the book’s vivid setting and imagery are never far away from your senses awaiting your return to its pages.

Saskia Walker’s writing is, as always, beautiful. Rampant is melded together with paranormal and historical context; everything is woven intricately to make this a contemporary read with many layers.

What more can I say without revealing plot spoilers? This is another of my keepers and I recommend it wholeheartedly (with a warning that Rampant isn’t for the faint-hearted or those who find sexually explicit language offensive).

Hi Susan, I visited your blog a while ago and loved the background with books that you'd used. Wonder if you could tell me where to find it please? I am absolutely rubbish at finding all the cool stuff! Thanks Susan
