What readers say

(Reviewing The Scissors and the Sword)


I love how the story has multiple story lines to think about and ponder as you go from one to the other and you are left wanting to get through the next chapter to find out more from the other story line…

…I hope there are more to come from Ethan Fox, hopefully a series.

(Reviewing The Scissors and the Sword)


Although not my genre of choice, I decided to take a chance on this book and I’m glad I did! I wasn’t initially sure of quite what to expect, but perhaps that’s part of the appeal. The Scissors and the Sword, is something a bit different. A wonderfully unique and nuanced take on the mystery genre, with elements of the supernatural skilfully woven in. It’s well paced and thoughtful, with a narrative that is both easy and enjoyable to digest. I highly recommend picking it up.
