Summary

Something sinister lurks in the town of Pontypridd, nestled between picturesque valleys. It whispers in Claire’s mind. It knows her secrets, her dark twisted desires. It can help her fulfil them, to complete her horrifying wish. All she needs to do is let it in.

The detectives of the secretive special investigations department work tirelessly. They are the first and only line protecting mankind from the supernatural, and the supernatural from mankind. Detective Constables Jess Holden and Mark Curren head to the small Welsh town. Their task, to investigate a haunted house, and exorcise it if needed.

Caught between two supernatural foes, Mark and Jess turn to help from the unlikeliest places. Can the detectives trust their allies? Can they stop the growing threat before it threatens reality itself?

A compulsive thrilling horror novel, Blessed by Fire is a terrifying debut.

If the Bill and supernatural had an illegitimate child

If the Bill (uk police tv show) and supernatural had an illegitimate child this book would be it, there is something quintessentially British about the portrayal of the characters and depicts exactly how I would expect the uk police would deal with this sort of strange. This book paints a vivid world that I find relatable. The only thing that niggles at my enjoyment of this audio book is the poor welsh accent the narrator adopts for a few characters, that being said I still thoroughly enjoy this book!

Enjoyable story of ghosts and djinn

This is an interesting and enjoyable story, made all the better for me, by being set in a place I know, it's pretty comical in parts too.

The narrator is great mostly and his attempt at a welsh accent is not too bad BUT it needs speeding up, seriously, it sounds bizarre spoken so slowly.

Supernatural Investigations

Mark Curran and Jess Holden worked for the Special Investigations Department which dealt in supernatural crimes. They were called out to the Welsh town of Pontypridd to investigate two separate crimes. One of the crimes was to investigate a haunted house were the ghost of a maid had pushed a girl through a window. The second was to do with a Jinn brought back through portal to get revenge on her boyfriend and possessing her. Investigating a lot more murders meant more than one Jinn was abroad. With the help of a local constable Mark & Jess had to try and get rid of the Jinn. The narrator’s Welsh accent was very poor but still a good listen. A really enjoyable book with a few laughs along the way.

Great performance

I thought the performance was really enjoyable, the commentary really made the characters come alive. The storyline seemed a little confused in places but overall enjoyable

Paranormal series Book 1

A good start to the series about paranormal cops. Plenty of action and some good dialogue, interesting storyline.

The narrator does a a good job with both english & welsh accents but not much differentiation between the voices of the characters.
