Sins of the Father by JG Faherty – Review

WHAT’S THE BOOK ABOUT

Henry Gilman has spent years trying to separate himself from his father’s legacy of murder and insanity. Now he has the chance – all he has to do is figure out who’s been killing people in Innsmouth. Then he’ll be a hero and win the heart of the woman he loves, Flora Marsh. But soon he’s caught in a web of danger, with the undead stalking the streets at night, a terrible monster lurking below the city, and a prophecy of destruction about to come true. In the process, his actions cause unwanted consequences and to save Flora he has to do the very thing he’s spent his life trying to avoid – follow his father’s footsteps into madness.

Bay Yanlış – Turkish Dizi Review | Episodes 1 – 5

Can Yaman and Özge Gürel are back with a new series, Bay Yanlış (Mr.Wrong), that airs on Fox Turkey every Friday 8.00 P.M. They had previously worked together on Dolunay. Being a huge fan of Yaman, I could not afford to miss this one. To date, five episodes have been aired. Let’s just say this is going to be another great series, which is going to take the world by storm again.

Bay Yanlış is a romantic, fun, and light-hearted drama. It features a great lead pair and a strong supporting cast. Hopefully, with enough help from the scriptwriters, it will be another magical series, even better than Yaman’s previous works.
