Product description

Review

Hocknell mixes esoterica with playful storytelling and arch wit. --EO Higgins - Author of Conversations with Spirits

I was so immersed in this utterly bonkers reading experience I greedily devoured it in one sitting. There's a cracking turn of events and it's walloped in some brilliant one liners too. Undoubtedly, considerable attention has been paid to merging the past and the present which are brought alive by the frantic finesse of mystic mayhem, and a constant stream of curiosity that I found impossible to ignore. Unquestionably quirky. Brilliantly barmy. Absolutely recommended. --Wendy Smart, Little Bookness Lane blog

As best I can discover, this is Hocknell's premiere novel. I certainly hope it's not his last, because he does an excellent job of weaving together stories in two different timelines. It was consistently engaging, with pleasant twists and revelations along the way. The characters were interesting - even when not lovable. I will most certainly keep an eye out for future work from Thomas Hocknell. He's an author I look forward to reading again. --Brian Profitt, Book Reviewer
