For Red-Line: The Shift:
“A competent, well written and interesting alien adventure, with a hint of romance, Red-Line: The Shift holds your interest from start to finish. Who is watching Sarah Randolph and what do they want with her? Why hasn’t she felt like herself lately, or been able to sleep? John Ramsey has the answers, or at least some of them, but can she trust him? The action starts quickly, with Sarah going through the ‘shift’ just moments after being told she is not in fact human. The story then confines us to one house and one group of characters as they aid and protect Sarah through her shift, whilst using their own unique sensitivities to divert and fight danger as it appears. Sarah is a ‘red-line’ Eudoran, possibly the last of her kind and the only hope the gray-line Eudorans have of survival…but there is another force at work, and who they are and why they want to get hold of Sarah will no doubt be revealed in Volume Two.”
For First Cut: Book one in The Family or Foe Saga…
For Curse Breaker:
“Bishop’s novel is two books in one: a murder mystery, which reaches an early resolution, followed by a reveal about Gillian that results in a very different kind of story. Readers who’ve already read Bishop’s preceding trilogy will be in familiar terrain, but for others, it will be a somewhat jarring genre shift. Nevertheless, there’s romance and suspense throughout as Grayson and Gillian succumb to their mutual attraction and occasionally find themselves in mortal peril. Lengthy scenes play out with copious dialogue, but they entail engaging discussions about murder suspects or the particulars of Gillian’s family. During action scenes, however, the author truly delivers; in one tension-ridden sequence, Gillian hides from a threat, “her breathing coming in short shallow gasps. Her heart hammered and her side burned from exertion.
An unconventional but consistently absorbing multigenre tale.”
For Haunted River: Book One in the Detectives Daniels and Remalla Series…
“The story remains tense to the end as the list of suspects increases and more secrets are revealed. It culminates in a hair-raising, shocking scene. Haunted River by J. T. Bishop is a rewarding, absorbing read that every fan of murder mysteries should read.”
For High Child:
“J. T. Bishop delivers another marvelous read.
High Child is an exceptional novel with a unique premise, strong characterization, intriguing mystery, and a thrilling, suspenseful plot.
Readers will adore Bishop’s thoroughly engrossing, imaginative series and eagerly await the next installment.”
For Lost Souls: Book One in the Redstone Chronicles…
“The supernatural elements are convincing, and the story’s explosive ending provides a neat twist that shocks and satisfies at once. Both paranormal suspense fans and traditional mystery lovers will eagerly await Bishop’s next.”
