I’ve always been drawn to Arthurian legend, loving to read about a world inhabited by knights and dragons. This story was no exception – beautifully written, with rich descriptive content and a web of intricately-woven sub-plots. The characters fit perfectly, they are as real as are we – they draw you into their world, make you feel. The two lands, one set under water and the other above the surface are poles apart, which makes for a fascinating read.
Thankfully, fiction enables writers to take the past, reinvent it and create refreshing stories to entertain us. This is pure entertainment. It’s a long book, but well worth the time.
I listened to the first few chapters of this story using Kindle’s text to speech facility – OK, so the pronunciation of names like Ashira was a bit dodgy, but the tinniness actually made the futuristic elements more futuristic – if you get my drift. An audiobook would be a fabulous addition to, as this is a book befitting a regular storyhour.
