Tyme's End by BR Collins, reviewed by Linda Buckley-Archer

Collins does sexual tension and menace very well, and the scenes between Bibi and Oliver in the opening section are a great foil for the supernatural thrills of the middle act. And if the first two sections err on the leisurely side, the final section grips. Having primed the reader with all the necessary clues and cranked up the tension, Collins launches into a page-turning finale. From the moment we see Oliver's grandfather in thrall to Jack, watching as the older man pulls the legs and antennae from a beautiful green beetle and places it carefully back in the grass, it's impossible to put the book down.
