Biographie de l'auteur

Kirsten Arcadio is a UK author who has worked for over fifteen years in digital communications. In 2011 she decided to return to her first love, literature. When she's not reading, writing or watching Sci Fi, she's plate-spinning digital content projects for her clients. Her strong connection to Italy, evident in her books, comes from her love of all things Italian, including her husband, and she once taught English in the Italian senate. Borderliners is her first novel and the first in a trilogy. The second in the trilogy, Split Symmetry, is due out later this year.

Kirsten Arcadio has done a fabulous job with this pyschological thriller set in a sleepy village. A lot of research ensures that this is a real page turner and kept me enthralled and curious right till the end. Dr Elena Lewis is a likeable character with a lot more to her than your average heroine and I can't wait to see where her future adventures take us.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing 24 mars 2014
Par Deborah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Borderliners was simply a mess, with numerous plot points left unexplained. For example, Arcadio repeatedly referred to something dark in the history of her protagonist, Dr. Elena Lewis, but she never disclosed what that "something" was. As best I could determine, Dr. Lewis had a history of serious mental illness; if so, how did she ever become a licensed psychotherapist? At one point, Dr. Lewis "thought of [her] own secret weapon, which [she] kept hidden under the floorboards in [her] bedroom," yet she never used this weapon against the villains living next door. Dr. Lewis repeatedly experienced headaches at key moments; whether this was significant was never addressed.

Arcadio did not seem to know what kind of book she wanted Borderliners to be. Despite a plethora of supernatural elements, Borderliners was not a horror or fantasy book; the villains were ultimately taken down for their all-too-human behavior, and the mystery of the missing villagers and suicides was never resolved.

Arcadio's action sequences were ridiculous. As reviewer Raglin noted, she frequently placed her characters in impossible physical situations; here is one of my favorites:

She was right behind me, holding a large book in her right hand . . . She aimed it at my jaw. A short whistling punctuated the air as the book flew towards me, but I was quick. I could see she hadn't been trained to fight and I punched the book out of her hand before twisting back and raising my right leg to kick her away. I screamed, a short aggressive sound, before following through. One punch and she was down. As she fell, I saw the surprise in her eyes, and I allowed myself a smirk before I jumped over where she was lying on the ground to pin her hands behind the back and deliver a final chop to the back of her neck.

According to Arcadio, who mentioned the fact constantly whether it had anything to do with what was happening at the time, Dr. Lewis was a skilled martial artist. Holding a second-degree black belt myself, I can say without doubt that her skills were, indeed, impressive, if she could punch a book out of someone's hand after it had already been thrown; "punch" that person with her leg; and strike the back of the neck of her assailant, who was facing her before falling to the ground. I won't even address the unlikelihood that a true martial artist would "chop" the back of someone's neck, rather than using a technique truly designed to incapacitate that person.

Arcadio also failed at continuity. At one point, the village council met at a pub, "outside [which] stood the landlady, a middle-aged woman with spiky black hair and tattooed arms with an Alsatian by her side. The dirty brown of her hair was the same colour as the deep and hostile furrows in her brow." Well, which color was her hair: black or brown? At the end of the meeting, however, Dr. Lewis began "[l]ooking around for the landlord," who "produced a bunch of keys from his apron." Which was the pub owner: female or male? Within the space of only eight sentences, one character "lit up a cigarette as [he] couldn't find [his] roll-ups," only to subsequently "jump[] and stub[] out [his] roll-up."

I regret the time I spent reading this book and strongly urge other readers to pass it by.

I received a free copy of Borderliners through Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Weak writing blights Borderliners potential 14 mars 2014
Par Rod Raglin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It’s late on a stormy night when Elena, the heroine of Kirsten Arcadio’s novel, Borderliners, sets out for an unexplained rendezvous with a woman at a barn. The barn turns out to be sort of a flea market selling New Age merchandise and the woman turns out to be dead, evidently by suicide by an overdoes of drugs. Why this woman wanted Elena to meet her, how she planned to be dead when Elena arrived, and the significance of the location of the body is never fully explained – ever.

Borderliners has potential, a psychologist relocates to a small village and when four of her patients, all involved with a cult-like Charismatic Community, commit suicide she decides to investigate. Unfortunately, this feasible storyline is hampered by poor writing.

Arcadios characters are thin and one dimensional. Julia, the antagonist and cult leader, is depicted as rude and nasty, her husband, Iain, is just plain weird and has bad breath. Yet they are somehow charismatic enough to attract dozens of followers to their movement. Some research into cults and charismatic leaders and how they attract, control and hold their members would have served the author well.

The plot is hampered long passages from a ‘dream journal’, extensive musings about the interpretation of Tarot cards, dialogue between characters about comparative religions, and info dumps of backstory that are unmotivated and unnecessary. Though some of this information is interesting and appears to be an area of expertise for the author it does little to advance the plot or develop character. Indeed, some chapters are of so little significance they could be eliminated altogether.

Important plot points, when they do occur, are convoluted and unbelievable. In one case the antagonist comes out of her house, which is next door to the protagonist’s, and proceeds to have a sensitive and revealing conversation on a cordless telephone in her front yard, which the protagonist just happens to hear.

Plot glitches confuse and frustrate the reader. Early in the story Elena, the heroine, describes her mother’s response when it is revealed her daughter is clairvoyant as follows:
This only sent my mother into even greater turmoil, and rather than stopping my treatment, she intensified it.
However, when this is discussed later in the story she says:
My mother, instead, had understood.
Small thing? Maybe but it goes to author credibility. As does this rationalization; though Elena’s home is burglarized, items are stolen, threats are received, and finally she is assaulted, she reports none of this to the police. When asked why she hasn’t reported these crimes, her response is “I don’t do police.”

The author describes actions that while are seemingly impossible are entertaining. Consider;
"I lunged over to put two fingers against her neck. No pulse. Dialing 999 with one hand, I wrenched open her mouth and shoved my ear down to her face. Nothing."
How do you punch numbers into a cell phone while wrenching open an unconscious person’s mouth with the other and at the same time “shoving” your ear down to her face?

Or, what exactly is being considered in this passage:

"I bit the top of my thumbnail off as I considered this, ripping a sliver of skin out from under it. I sighed. Although it was nearly lunchtime I wasn’t hungry. It was a long time since I’d felt much like eating anything for pleasure."
When hungry, does the character eat her thumbnails for pleasure?

Here’s my favorite. The character asks;
‘Let’s have a show of hands shall we? How many people from this community have taken their own lives in the last ten years or so?’

Much of writing is craft. Craft takes practice – lots of practice. The author and the work would have been better served by critiques from beta readers and the services of a good editor before rushing to publication.

I received this book free from Story Cartel in return for a honest review.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 More of a mind thriller! Review may change after I re-read it again 8 mars 2014
Par Autumn Fallen Over Book Reviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I received this book via Story Cartel to give an honest review. 3 1/2 star rating.

It started off to be a good book, but I eventually got lost especially towards the end. I had to read the last chapter twice to understand what was going on. It is a very good psychological thriller but I felt as thought it was lacking a bit on information. This book kind of reminded me of The Village by M. Night Shyamlan. You have this village but all is not what is seems and when you get to the end after being completely worked up with the story you felt let down only because you really didn't understand.

Example, Elena and Vince are in the woods investigating, after they found what they needed why not call the police? Instead I want to say they wait a day, then something happens but no one is never called? You knew what they were doing but yet you didn't do anything? I felt this was more of a mind thriller one of those books that will make you want to go back to re-read because you will probably find more information that you may have missed. Which I plan on doing once I have the time.

Story line: Good, keeps you engaged within the story to find out who exactly is the Charismatic Community and what exactly is they stand for. But lacks the action of the community being found out.

Characters: Elena- well she is a psychotherapist who came from a background of being put into a mental hospital pretty much. But she overcame it all and started her own practice to help others. She has a way of helping those that need her in a good way and without all the shock therapy.

Vince- Not sure about him. He seemed to like Elena but then he put up the vibes that he didn't. It was really confusing. He did seem to want to help her bring down the Charismatic Community.

Julia and her husband- they are their own people. They are the founders of the Community within the village and they say they are "help" people but are they really? Julia has a bit of mean streak within her and you can see it when you read.

The way the story seemed to leave off I hope that there is another book? Or at least a novella to where we get answers for things.

I do plan on reading more by this author, only because I want to see what else she has to give us readers. I hate to do this but since I was kind of confused at times with the story I have to give this book a three and a half! Now my review may change again once I read this book again.

Borderliners is a book that you can't put down once you pick it up. As you follow Elena into the world that lurks beneath the surface of normal English life you find yourself questioning things you took for granted. With detailed characterisations and a story that is guaranteed to keep you on your toes this is a book that you won't want to put down.

Can't wait for the rest of the Trilogy now!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Psychological Thriller 8 mars 2014
Par S. Saldanha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I recived this book free from storycartel.com for my honest review.

The heroine is a doctor who deals with disturbances of the mind. The firat death is one of her patients. It is ruled a suicide, but Elena does not believe that.

It is a small village, so everyone knows everyone else. Elena's neighbours run the prime religious group in the village. She begins to think that this group may have had something to do with her patient's death. The further she looks the more cult-like it appears.

This is a very exciting book, with occult overtones and the horrors of the neighbours next door. This is an excellent read. I am sure I will re-read it again soon.
