I am thrilled to share my review for Rivals by Sam Michaels with you today on Blog Tour
The streets of Battersea are about to get a new leader, one who will rule with an iron fist.
It’s the 1930s and Georgina Garrett has risen up from her tough beginnings to become the new boss of the Battersea gang. But not everyone is pleased with a female taking charge…
With rival gangs trying to steal her turf, untrustworthy men in her midst and her dad lost deep in the bottle, Georgina has a lot to tackle. With her friends and family in constant danger and those closest to her questioning her leadership Georgina must use her wits to show that she’s made for this job.
The Garrett name is one to be feared and Georgina will begin to change the face of Battersea forever…
Perfect for fans of Peaky Blinders, Martina Cole and Lesley Pearse.
Sam Micheals is a new author for me and I went into this story not realising it is the second book in the series, which did confuse me at the start of the story. Never the less once I got my head round the background from the previous book I soon settled into a deeply gripping story.
The author takes us back to the 1930s and we follow a story about gang rivals has we follow Georgina on an eventful action packed journey.
With it being a gangland story it is full of characters that you will love and hate. Georgina is a strong character full of determination.
And I especially love the fact that it is set in the 1930s it reminded me of Lesley Pearse’s books. No mobile phones, computers technology etc. Keeping things very simple which made me feel totally in the story and what it would of been like to live in that era. This story gets you thinking about how things aren’t actually that different to now! Read this and you will know exactly what I mean.
Now I am left waiting for the next book and I am definitely going back to read book one to find out what happened first.
Thank you to Aria for a copy and inviting me to take part on this tour.
