    1. I’ve been a fan of Mr Ewan’s thrillers since Safe House – particularly because he always brings something different to the table with each new novel so you know you are in for a treat (or a trick?) every time, you are just not sure what kind of treat it might beIn the case of “Dark Tides” the treat was this – one of my favourite types of story (past events invading current happenings) done with this authors particular style, using some terrifically drawn characters facing some terrif [...]

    2. This is one of those books that begin near the end and teases you with just enough information to make you want to turn the pages to find out how it all started. The prologue is our first introduction to Claire Cooper - on the night of 31 October 2014 – the night of Hop-tu-naa, the Manx equivalent of Halloween. This night, 31 October, has particular significance throughout the book as events occur on this same date over a period of nearly 20 years. We then jump back several years to where the [...]

    3. Dark Tides – A Dark Manx ThrillerChris Ewan with Dark Tides introduces us to some of the darker aspects of Manx folklore and spins it in to a wonderful thriller. Anyone that knows anything about the Isle of Man knows that some of its folklore can be quite dark but nothing can compete with Hop-tu-naa, the Manx Halloween. Ewan has woven a wonderful thriller in to the night of Hop-tu-naa drawing out the darkest of evil spirits.Claire Cooper’s mother goes missing presumed dead on 31st October 19 [...]

    4. Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for my review copy.This is the first time I’ve read any Chris Ewan and I found it rather fun . There was much to enjoy and relish in this dark Halloween read. A group of teenagers, who annually dare each other to do crazy things, that one time goes very wrong. This sets up a chain of events leading to Claire Cooper searching a derelict cottage on the 31st October 2014. She is there to meet a murderer.This is essentially a revenge novel, with people being [...]

    5. There were a few formatting issues in the copy I had for review which slightly affected my enjoyment of the book. This will be resolved in the final copies.This book starts with events at Hop-tu-naa, which is the Manx Halloween. Claire loses her mum when she vanishes on this night after taking her door to door around the neighbourhood.She then goes around with a group of friends who dare each other on Hop-tu-naa and this has terrible ramifications for them all.She becomes a police officer and on [...]

    6. Un thriller muy interesante que engancha desde la primera página, aunque los primeros capítulos de la Claire adolescente me han parecido más flojos. Menos mal que enseguida el libro ha recuperado el ritmo y no he querido dejarlo hasta llegar al final.

    7. I’m a confirmed fan of Chris Ewan’s crime writing to date and Dark Tides does not disappoint! Beginning with one of the creepiest opening chapters it has ever been my pleasure to read- lone female Claire Cooper- a scary deserted cottage- Halloween 2014 (or Hop-tu-naa as it is dubbed on the Isle of Man) and the scene is set for a slowly escalating tension filled read. Cleverly, throughout the course of book Ewan takes us through a succession of Halloween nights, flipping backwards and forward [...]

    8. Thriller set in the Isle of Man (Cre’n raad ren oo roie Hop-tu-naa*)Hop-tu-naa (pronounced hop-two-nay) is a Celtic festival on 31st October, celebrated in the Isle of Man and pre-dates Halloween. It is also the original celebration of New Year’s Eve. Every year, children will dress up and carry carved turnip lanterns, which are actually swedes or known as moots by the Manx people. The english translation means “this is the night”; or “Fright Night” as some people call it….Claire C [...]

    9. Having never read anything by Chris Ewan before I was drawn to this book on Netgalley because of it's cover and very exciting sounding premise. From the book's haunting and chilling opening to a fantastic finale it was a gripping read that lived up to the 'keep you up all night' line on the back, stupidly starting this book late one night found me still reading a couple of hours later always the sign of a good book. Given the book is set around Halloween it is perfect for reading at that time. T [...]

    10. For the locations of the book, please visit - Dark Tides booktrailDare you dance during Hop-tu-Naa, the Manx Halloween? Dare you anger the spirits?The Isle of Man is awash with folklore and a history like no other. Take Hop-tu-naa for example, a Celtic festival which takes place on 31st October like Halloween although this festival dates back much earlier. The name pronounced Hop two nay – translates as This is the Night…The phase of the year when the veil between our world and the spirit wo [...]

    11. Review by ireadnovels.wordpressOne night, six friends one deadly dare.I really Loved reading this thriller, it was something so very different from all the other thrillers that I ever read. Much of this book is set in the landscape of Isle of Man.Claire is just eight-years old when her mother mysteriously vanishes during Hop-tu-naa, the Manx Halloween. The police thought Claire's mother must have just left her and her dad. Claire got the impression that maybe her Mum had killed herself and that [...]

    12. On 31 oct every year we check in with Clair Cooper, in 1995 she loses her Mother, which is never found , and haunts her all her life

    13. I could not read my ARC copy due to entire sentences having no punctuation or spacing all the way through, impossible to read. Have requested another copy.

    14. Hop-tu- Naa is the Manx Halloween. Kind of. It is actually the celebration of Celtic New Year on the Isle of Man and predates Halloween. Turnips feature heavily, with regional variations in the carvings.Claire Cooper isn't a Hop-tu-Naa fan. When she was eight she dressed as a witch and swung her turnip lantern, calling on various houses. She sang the traditional songs alongside her mother, unaware it was the last evening they would spend together. The next morning Claire's mother had disappeared [...]

    15. This was a perfect, scary Halloween story! Claire lives through a series of traumatic events, all taking place on Hop-tu-naa (pre-Halloween festivity celebrated on the Isle of Mann), and then the bodies start to pile up - year after year. Who is the killer? There's no one left!This is a thriller mystery with a different excellent setting every year: a spooky forest, an old mansion, a group of caves on the sea, a deserted youth camp, etc. The plot and setting are the best points - the characters [...]

    16. Set on the Isle of Man. Initially, I thought it was going to be a teen drama/romance. The plot did the temporal jumping thing every chapter. I hate this kind of thing because it's so disorienting. Eventually got into it but seemed slow and occasionally not that believable. Found out heaps about Hop Tu Naa (like a Celtic Haloween celebration)Hop-tu-Naa,My mother's gone away,And she wont be back until the morning.Jinnie the Witch flew over the house,To fetch the stick to lather the mouse.Hop-tu-Na [...]

    17. Carried me right to the end guessing. I would have to say that some of the opening is a touch hard to believe and without the changes in timeframe would leave me convinced this was bad storytelling. So don't let yourself dwell on the why of the young girls relationship at the story's outset, because there is no logical reason the popular pretty one would suddenly and for no reason befriend the introverted weirdo child of a supposed-murdered mother…ever. However, the story is a thriller (in a t [...]

    18. Nice atmospheric opening, but once it settles into the present-day story the solution to the 'mystery' is so obvious that there's actually no mystery at all.

    19. Mi reseña de "Dark Tides" fue originalmente publicada en mi blog literario (martajuncosa.wordpress/20).Cuando la protagonista de la novela, Claire Cooper, tenía ocho años, su madre desapareció durante la noche de Hop-tu-Naa. Diez años más tarde sigue buscando cómo lidiar con su pérdida, pero un juego de desafíos con sus cinco amigos terminará de la peor forma y desencadenará una serie de muertes seis años más tarde.No os cuento más porque la novela ya es lo suficientemente predecib [...]

    20. Source: I bought this book at Blackwell'sDark Tides Chris EwanFaber & Faber, October 2014Hardback, 448 pagesPresumably aimed at the Hallowe'en market, this book follows events taking placed among a group of six friends on 31 October - Hop-tu-Naa on the Isle of Man which we're told is the local version of Hallowe'en. Early on, we get a glimpse of a mother determined to inculcate the local traditions in her daughter, though I couldn't for the life of me see much difference (or any, really) bet [...]

    21. This is my first book by Chris Ewan and I have to say I am impressed. This book is set around multiple Hop-tu-naa nights, known also as Halloween. There were a few times that it was a little confusing going between the years since it was not always in chronological order, but it didn't take long to figure it out and after the first part of the book they were pretty much all in order. Claire's mom takes her to sing at her bosses house and after taking her back home she heads back into work and is [...]

    22. Rate: 3.5 (almost a 4)I went into this book having only read the book description but not having read or watched any reviews. I know Chris Ewan as the author of Safe House (which I will be listening to on Audiobook next) but have not read any of his works.Overall I think that this was a solid thriller however I found that there were points that I felt had been dragged on longer than I would have liked. I was able to spot who the killer was fairly early on into the book and the further I got into [...]

    23. This is an incredible thriller. It focuses on a group of six friends, and the events that unfurl on Hop-Tu-Naa on an almost annual basis. The characters are very well-drawn - the group of six was incredibly easy to relate to - and the author doesn't fall back on small-town cliches when building the characters of the detectives. I also enjoyed the way the author wove the past and present together - often this technique backfires, but this was very well done. And, while towards the end I had a fee [...]

    24. Really enjoyed this book, although it's dark underbelly was a little bit disturbing in places. I had guessed the bad guy almost from the start but that didn't take away from the story at all. Here we have a traditional crime tale - a group of young friends commit a misdeed, and then are hunted down in the future in an act of revenge.I liked Claire, the main character, as she was by no means a perfect detective. In fact, her being a detective was barely a factor in the story at all, which made it [...]
