#Review: The Tower Of Souls – G. Wakeling
Forced to confront the startling secrets surrounding the town of Ridgewood, Roberta Arlington now knows that nothing is what it seems. A parallel universe exists alongside the world she’s known from the moment she was born. This universe is nothing like the real world. Curses, doppelgangers, and the supernaturally unexplained are things she’s come to know so well.
Refusing to give in to the fear roiling deep within her, Roberta promises herself that she will get out of Gathin. She also knows that there are further secrets to be explored. But first she needs to find her way home. If she’s to succeed in doing just that, she’ll need to place her trust in a man she thought long dead.
Barry Wittle has survived in this world, intent on keeping it and the doppelgangers away from the world they’ve come from. Doing so has been difficult, but he’s determined in holding to the promise he made himself so long ago. It’s the only way he’ll be able to finally make his way home to his beloved wife.
Placing her trust in Barry’s hands, Roberta soon comes to the realization that the world they inhabit is far more dangerous than the one they left behind. Uncertainty and indecisions cloud their judgment at every turn. If she and Barry are to make it home in one piece, they’ll need to work together in unlocking the secrets surrounding Gathin. Only then will they be able to see their beloved Ridgewood once and for all.
Another great addition to the Inside Evil series, The Tower of Souls picks up where the first book left off. We’re now immersed in Roberta’s turmoils as she does her best to come to terms with life as she now knows it. It’s disheartening to know that another world exists beside her own. Further disturbing is the fact that she now has to fend for herself if she’s to make it back to Ridgewood.
Geoffrey certainly doesn’t disappoint as he continues to build the world he’s lovingly created. Adding in more of it’s lore, we get to explore the circumstances that have brought each of the characters to where they are now. Will they be able to put the curse to rest, once and for all? It’s hard to say, but I look forward to what book three has to bring to the table soon enough.
Inside Evil – Synopsis
Life in the secluded town of Ridgewood is charming, simple, safe – isn’t it? The bubble that isolates the hamlet protects, or so the eclectic residents believe. Lurking in the background of everyday life is a curse that comes in cycles and picks off the innocent as it pleases. But this time there’s something different, this time the curse wants more.
Roberta Arlington’s life changes the moment she finds one of her pupils, pale, frozen, DEAD. Her mind is filled with uncharacteristic thoughts, dreams and visions create bizarre scenes, and her blood boils as she lashes out at those she loves. Amidst her turmoil there are friends, and enemies, who come to her aid, piecing together the puzzle laid before them.
But with the ancient evil having struck down so many through the centuries, Roberta will have to muster every ounce of strength she has to survive. An entire world, a strange land, has unveiled itself. If Roberta knows one thing for sure, it’s that she alone won’t be able to escape as death comes calling…

The Tower of Souls – Synopsis
When you conquer a curse, there’s always going to be repercussions.
Roberta has battled ancient and evil forces before, but after rising above her latest demon, she’d always thought that life could finally get back to normal. However, after surviving the terror lurking in Ridgewood’s forest, she comes to discover that her troubles have only just begun.
Removed from the friends who aided her quest before, Roberta is now alone in a foreign world with no idea how to escape. Familiar faces are everywhere, but behind every friend lays a stranger waiting to kill her, or worse…turn her over to her greatest nemesis.
Whilst she may have fought a curse before, this time it’s worse. This time her enemy knows Roberta inside and out, and if there’s any hope of survival, she’ll have to go against every instinct she has.
