Welcome to Dark Reads stop on another Random Things Tour for The Starfolk Arcana. With thanks to Anne and to Martha for inviting me to take part and providing me with an advanced review copy of the book.
About The Book
They’ve spent lifetimes being pulled apart. This time, they’re ready to fight.
After years of hiding her psychic abilities, Beth meets Jonan – the man with the violet eyes – and starts to feel like she belongs for the first time. Jonan has waited lifetimes to be with the woman who haunts his dreams. Drawn together by deeply buried memories from before birth, they try to make sense of a soul connection that opens windows into both their histories and their destiny.
But when a woman from Jonan’s past starts weaponising their emotions and stirring up hate, distrust and a fear of the supernatural, Beth and Jonan find themselves targeted in a wave of suspicion.
Only they can see what she is doing. But can they hold out against her bombardment and be true to who they really are, or will they allow The Fear to tear them apart?

Dark Reads Review
The Starfolk Arcana is a beautifully spooky mystery set against the perfect backdrop of St Albans.
I was instantly captured by the storytelling and the well rounded characterisation in this book from the beginning, The characters were relatable and ‘real’ on their journey of discovery.
I had to remind myself that this is the authors debut novel, it is beautifully written and the story is crafted in a way that you just have to find out what is going to happen next, an absolute page turner.
I really liked how relatable the story was to many of the the things we are seeing in the world right now.
I am not usually a fan of Romance Mystery novels (Or any romance really haha) but I was intrigued by the subject matter and found it to be an enjoyable read, and the better news, this is book one of a trilogy!
If you enjoy Supernatural Mystery, Romance and suspense with a YA feel, this is definitely one for you!
About The Author
Martha is a dreamer and lover of stories who likes nothing better than spending her days exploring
the paranormal and intuitive senses and getting to know the characters in her head.
She is a tarot card reader and Reiki Master, and loves to chat reading, writing and all things mystical on social media, as well as posting pictures of her fellow pack-member, Bertie the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Martha is a fiddle player who fell in love with all kinds of traditional music, but particularly Irish, and is also teaching herself to play the Irish Bouzouki. She played her way through her English degree at York and remembers that time as much for the music as the book.
Martha started her working life in PR because she wanted to write and in the end she left PR
because she wanted to write more. But along the way she had the opportunity to work with
journalists, hone her writing and editing skills and adapt to the many voices she was asked to use.
