Eric Rendel is British and lives and works in Edgware. He is extremely involved in the Jewish community and is currently on the board of management of his synagogue and is also a member of the Council of the United Synagogue. In 1982 Eric qualified as a solicitor and was senior partner in his own practice until 1997 when he then joined another practice as a consultant. In the year 2000 at the age of 42 he changed career and became IT Manager of a top 50 Chartered Accountancy firm and became their IT Director some years later. Eric now works as a freelance IT consultant specialising in software packages for professionals. He has been an associate lecturer teaching computer science with the Open University. Eric is the son of a Holocaust survivor. In recent years he has written articles on the holocaust for the synagogue magazine. The most recent article proved so popular that he was invited to give a public reading at the synagogue's Holocaust Memorial Day Commemoration before local dignitaries as well as members of other communities. Eric's first story was a children's story which was published in the Jewish Chronicle in 1985 this was followed by another short story. Eric then went onto write a full length novel, 'The Stone of Worlds' a sword and sorcery fantasy and he has now written a dark horror fantasy, called 'Light' the background of which hails from Jewish mythology and the characters are mainly from within the Jewish world, the evil force is his own invention.

Light is an intriguing novel that crosses genre boundaries, mixing as it does Kabbalistic mysteries with orthodox Jewish Theology, science fantasy, fantasy horror, adventure and Dan Brownesque mystery. It is a real assault on the reading senses, challenging us to understand and comprehend so many different scenarios and possible outcomes in every single chapter.
Because it is based on Jewish mysticism, theology, myths and legends, it may not be easy reading for those who are not versed in those traditions. However, it makes up for this through it’s fast faced ‘good versus evil’ adventure, which everyone will be able to follow, even if they don’t understand the deeper meanings of why things happen.
If you like mystical adventure type novels which transcend time and space then this will be one to pack in the suitcase for your next holiday.
I understand that it is based on ancient Jewish teachings and Kabalah but is the work of fiction. Having said that you could almost believe in the mysticism of the writing and wonder at the truth.
Definitely recommend it.
