On a walk with her Father 'Big Dave' the new Curate, Rosa trips over something near the riverbank. It turns out to be an ancient sword. Of course the Glasties immediately assume it is Excalibur but is it?
Marco's would be Psychiatrist friend decides from Marco's emails that he must get to Glastonbury before Marco finally loses his marbles. He calls it Goldman's Syndrome! So he sets off to his Grandmothers house in Torquay and tells her is going to Glastonbury. The old lady is so excited that she decides to go along with him much to Josh's horror.
It is when Wooly starts acting like a Glastie that alarm bells begin to ring in the Watchers heads. What has happened to him, why is he now agreeing with the Glasties?
You'll just have to read this excellent sequel to Marco's Pendulum to find out.
I know these two books were written with children in mind but they still make good reading for adults.
I sort of liked it, even if I could not quite believe in it. But I don't get on well with juvenile protagonists, and there was too much of the freckle-faced kid about Marco for me. That may have annoyed me.
Several of Rickman's books lately seem to want to re-use characters and I don't think this works well. I suspect it was an idea of his editor or publisher. There is a reason they ain't authors.
Perfect reading for young adults as an introduction to Phil Rickman's work, but for us grown ups too-- more, please!
Mr Rickman does write in a style that guarantees easy reading, and he does offer practical, realistic and even scientific reasons for weird happenings. The teenager Marco is the main character, and there is a nasty evil man in the background manipulating events to achieve a plan that Marco & friends must foil. Good holiday read.
