Scholarship girl Cassie Bell is fascinated by the city’s beauty, but there’s no time for her to relax. Torn between an old flame and a new romance, she must also choose between the select world of the Few and her loyalty towards her best friends. And all the time a killer is stalking the Few. As Cassie is about to discover, no one is above suspicion. Sometimes, the people you love can be the most dangerous enemies of all ...

My Thoughts
Green swirlsThis one wasn’t quite as brilliant as the first two but yet still a wonderful series.   A couple of my favourite characters were sort of missing throughout the book.  I missed them!  The 4th one just has to come soon and with it I’m hoping the return of my characters.  The series took on a more serious turn of events, which left me quite upset, but I’m still hoping that things will work out.  I have my hopes and although I cannot say them here for fear of spoiling too much I pray they come true.  We’ll see in the next book I guess.  Can’t wait.  I still say the author is fabulous.   Her writing is very gripping and keeps you turning those pages…. even when things aren’t going the way you’d like.

About Gabriella Poole

Gabriella Poole is a pseudonym used by Gillian Philip.

I live in the north-east highlands of Scotland, with one husband, two children, three dogs (Cluny, Milo and Otto), two psychotic cats (the Ghost and the Darkness), a slayer hamster (Buffy), three chickens (Mapp, Lucia and Mrs Norris) and a lot of nervous fish. I have taken a solemn vow not to get any more pets. I will probably break this vow.

Writing for a living is (a) what I always wanted to do; (b) occasionally frustrating; (c) a lot of fun – I take dictation from the characters in my head, who spend their lives telling me what’s going to happen next.

But I like it that I never know just how it’s all going to end – not till the fat lady sings, the villain meets a suitably sticky end, and the boy gets the girl (or indeed the boy).

As well as full-length books, I write fiction for secondary Key Stage 3. Life Of The Party, Mind’s Eye, Sea Fever and Cyber Fever have been published by Evans Brothers, and short stories The Changeling, Rockface, Misty and The Kindest Cut appear in their sci fi, crime, ghost and comedy collections. And I ghostwrite fiction for companies including Hothouse and Working Partners.
