Maxim Jakubowski's view...

He moves with ease between lavish space operas, the perils of bio-technology, telepathy and in THE ACCORD, a love story with a difference, between the cracks of alternate realities in an England that is both familiar and rather creepy.

Lovereading view...

As climate change and humans are slowly destroying the earth people are choosing to go to a virtual ‘heaven’ after they die. The main story revolves around a love triangle though and the main themes of the story end up being love and revenge set against the real world and The Accord.

Who is Maxim Jakubowski


The Accord by Keith Brooke

The Accord, a virtual utopia where the soul lives on after death and your perceptions are bound only by your imagination. This is the setting for a tale of love, murder and revenge that crosses the boundaries between the real world and this virtual reality. When Noah and Priscilla escape into the Accord to flee Priscilla’s murderous husband, he plots to destroy the whole Accord and them with it. In revenge they arrange to have him assassinated but their success comes at the price of giving him the keys to the virtual kingdom. How can they hope to escape their stalker when he can become anything or anyone he desires and where does the pursuit of revenge stop for immortals in an eternal world?

I love the 'like for like' author recommendations, it's like an old friend whispering in your ear.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

Susan Walsh

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Jill Peters

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
