The website Books Reviews Anonymous granted Moristoun the status of must-read in their five-star review. Huge thanks to Loretta for agreeing to take a look at the book and I'm glad you enjoyed it so much.
You can read the full review here but as a taster, here's some of the best bits:
Huge thanks go out to the wonderful Ann Sterzinger for the first video review of Moristoun, which you can see below. Ann is a novelist herself and her brilliantly dark NVSQVAM is one of the best books I've read all year. You can read my review of it here and buy your own copy here. Ann's video review has all the humour that makes NVSQVAM such a treat, here it is in all its grumpy glory.

Thanks to Kate Onyett at Future Fire reviews for her excellent and extensive critique of Moristoun. It's a shame Kate didn't read a first draft before we went to press as she flagged up a wee historical inaccuracy in the book. The monarch during Buchan's mortal days should, of course, have been Queen Victoria and not George VI as I claimed.
You can read Kate's full review here. As always, I've picked out some of the more flattering quotes to make me look better...

Thanks to David Kenvyn for posting the first official review of Moristoun on his blog and for being so complimentary about the book. You can read the review here on his excellent site.
David's review really captures the essence of the book and what Kevin was trying to say in it. Here are some quotes, in true movie poster style, taken from it.
The first few Amazon reviews are beginning to trickle in. Thankfully, the early response from readers has been really positive.
Here's what customers have had to say so far.
"Really enjoyed this debut from Kevin McAllion. Moristoun has a really interesting premise and is laced with black humour and expressive writing. Well worth a read." Amazon customer.
"The first quarter of the story is written as a slow reveal as you try to work out what it is about Moristoun that makes it the unusual place that it is. And then you start to get it. The subject of the story is not a pleasant one, but McAllion delivers with precision, wit and overwhelming humour. On finishing the book, you almost feel you’d like to visit Moristoun for a wee visit. But to go and do that…well, you’d have to be Scottish, wouldn’t you?"
