JEFFREE STAR BLOOD SUGAR PALETTE - WORTH THE HYPE!? FIRST IMPRESSIONS, REVIEW + TUTORIAL!

Blood & Sugar

June, An unidentified body hangs upon a hook at Deptford Dock - horribly tortured and branded with a slaver's mark. Some days later, Captain Harry Corsham - a war hero embarking upon a promising parliamentary career - is visited by the sister of an old friend. Her brother, passionate abolitionist Tad Archer, had been about to expose a secret that he believed could cause irreparable damage to the British slaving industry. The book could have done with a final round of editorial whack-a-mole to remove some verbal anachronisms, but they are a small price to pay for its easy, fluent style. What is most striking, though, is that the characters manage to play their roles as representatives of the forces of history while being also abundantly individual and full of life.

Some days later, Captain Harry Corsham — a war hero embarking upon a promising parliamentary career — is visited by the sister of an old friend. Her brother, passionate abolitionist Tad Archer, had been about to expose a secret that he believed could cause irreparable damage to the British slaving industry. Format : ebook, hardcover pp. The extensive dramatis personae at the start of the book alerts readers to the fact there will be a large cast of characters with some colourful names and that they will need to keep their wits about them. Can I add that I always love a book with a map at the front! Harry soon finds there are things people are simply too scared to talk about for fear of retribution and it becomes increasingly evident there are vested interests whose reach extends into the highest places of society and government. What he discovers will eventually force Harry to make some difficult moral choices.

I had to wipe my brow during the reading of it and was practically singing sea shanties as I read. If I had had a tankard to hand, I would have used it for my reading time coffee and pretended I was in one of the inns. Impressive for the writing, the subject, the level of detail and research and the overall reading experience. This novel is on another level. The best way I can describe this is similar to an experience of a interactive museum — like Beamish, or the Yorvik Centre where you are guided around mock ups of historical houses, Viking villages etc. You can taste, see, smell and feel the setting, the emotions and everything in between.
