‘Marianne has long been one of my favourite’s and although I approached Glitter Rose with very high expectations, I’m pleased to say that in no way does it disappoint. Glitter Rose is set against the backdrop of an off-shore island community plagued by spores that change the Island’s inhabitants – some outwardly, others on the inside. The characters are complex and the scenes visually stunning. Truly spec-fic at it’s best!
‘If you’re not a fan of short stories – and honestly I never usually read them – Glitter Rose can also be approached as a small novel. The quartet flows together adding a new dimension with each part, almost with a chapter feel.
