Gripping throughout. Powerful, classic stuff. The Times Crisp prose, excellent dialogue and real sense of mounting evil. Time Out Grimly sinister. Written with blood-curdling aplomb. Sunday Telegraph Phil Rickman is one of my all-time favorites. I love everything he's done, from horror to mystery to supernatural thriller - often all in the same book. -- Diana Gabaldon --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Evil vs good in the holy Isle of Avalon, or is it just certain people with a dark history in Glastonbury ? Whatever the cause ancient or recent, as the winter heads towards the solstice the evil atmosphere in the town grows and comes to a head at dawn on the shortest day, as the forces of Good and Evil battle to gain the soul of a young girl.
Rickman, who prefers his work to be described as 'supernatural thrillers' rather than horror novels was one of the top authors of the genre in the 1990s and The Chalice was one of the later (1997) of his stand alone novels which were, in my opinion far better than the later 'phychic detective' style of book that he has produced in more recent years, perhaps to satisfy a different demographic of reader.
His early works are well worth adding to any collection of supernatural or horror thrillers.
Sadly the Kindle edition has a number of formating flaws, section breaks in the text not being well defined which can be a bit confusing for the reader but this does not distract from an aborbing and suspenseful read.
