The BookViral Review:

If you’ve read any of Bolton’s books you’ll know they deliver oodles of suspense, drama and action-packed adventure for all your escapism needs and Folder certainly won’t disappoint!

Exploring multiple dimensions has become a popular theme in science fiction and the superhero universe but it takes something special to really stand out and Bolton has this covered with Folder proving a concept with endless possibilities.

With such a wildly imaginative start to a series, you might expect it to run out of steam but Folder finds Bolton firing on all cylinders throughout and you can imagine him grinning as he wrote it.

Intelligent science-fiction sometimes seems an endangered species, especially when its focus is multiverses or time travel – too much physics and there’s a risk of creating something cold and remote, too much action and it’s easy to get lost in the complexity of it. But with Folder, once you commit to the idea of alternative universes that can be revealed by simply folding back the fabric of reality you’re in for a breathless ride that makes for a fun, stylish piece of speculative YA sci-fi.

Central to this is Bolton’s protagonist Eric Folder who finds himself meeting alternative versions of his close family and Erin with whom he has fallen in love and here the warmth of Bolton’s characters makes Folder surprisingly tender.

Bolton certainly has a natural flair for the genre and has a lot of fun with its premise. Delivering a plot that’s refreshingly easy to navigate whilst teasing the brain and touching the heart as the twists and turns keep multiplying. And most importantly without stretching beyond the point of narrative sustainability.

Beyond inventiveness, Bolton is always careful to bring the human element of his tale to the fore. Encouraging his readers to delve beneath the veneer of a simply enjoyable romp to consider the more serious themes of reality, perception, identity and the unintended consequences of crossing into an alternative universe, the paradoxes and contradictions.

With everything a reader could want from a YA Time Travel Science Fiction novel Folder proves another highly enjoyable release from Bolton and is recommended without reservation.

The Occult -why the fascination with dark fiction?

While the occult is a broad umbrella, hiding its many forms under its silky black folds, it’s concepts have endured through time, enjoying many a resurgence through the ages. The term ‘occultism’, is relatively new, not used in French or English literature, for instance, until the 19th Century, although the term ‘occult sciences’ was commonly used in the 16th Century to describe practices such as astrology, alchemy, mysticism, and natural magic.
