“‘A Prison In The Sun’ is well written. The author draws you into the story from the start and through her realistic and vivid descriptions, I actually felt as though I was part of the story myself.” – https://gingerbookgeek.wordpress.com/2020/03/16/a-prison-in-the-sun-by-isobel-blackthorn/

“The two distinct story lines with Trevor and Jose had some parallel themes running through that was created so intricately that I enjoyed reading about.

“This author is adept at creating an all-encompassing world for the reader. You’re pulled in and can’t leave until the book finishes. If you enjoy fiction with a historical basis, and want to read a story that will give a lot to think about then this is the perfect book for you by a talented author who never fails to impress.” – Books Are Cool

“very beautifully written.” – Tessa Talks Books

“Overall I loved the plot and thought that it was well developed – it is 5 stars from me for this one – very highly recommended and it is a book that will stay with you” – Donna’s Book Blog

“Told from the point of view of Trevor, this story explores choices, temptations, fears and consequences. It is a story packed with intrigue and surprises. It certainly gives a different look at life on Fuerteventura, aspects not normally discussed or known about by the tourists visiting there. Fact and fiction are carefully blended in a story with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing and enthralled.” – Splashes into Books

“Storytelling at its best.” – The Bookwormery

“A Prison in the Sun is a lot more than just a mystery with literary tones…A well-researched and well-written story, A Prison in the Sun takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride…I just didn’t want the story to end! Engrossing and unique, I highly recommend A Prison in the Sun – The Book Decoder

“Great work moves people, for better or worse, and this did that. For a novel taking a dark, horrific premise, and utilizing that to highlight the bitter cervices of the human mind, this is everything it needed to be.” – Vain Radical
