If my children were still children the Marco books would be on their bookshelves. But, no problem. I don't need an excuse to read Phil Rickman, and as always I was engrossed to the end. The narrative is equally absorbing as those in the 'grown-up' books. The two main characters (12-ish) are beautifully drawn and -- well, we've all been twelve, haven't we? This story appeals to all ages and I was delighted once again to meet some friends from a previous story (the Chalice).
When Marco is despatched to Glastonbury to stay with his (weird Grandparents according to his Mother and Father), he feels decidely miffed. He is going to miss his friend Josh for a start.
However, after getting to know Wooly and Nancy and Glastonbury itself, he starts to like living there. He also makes friends with the new Curate's daughter Rosa.
Wooly is a Dowser and Marco finds that when Wooly gives him a pendulum to try out, he is a natural at dowsing. He is also a natural at attracting bullies!
However, something is not right in Glastonbury...........a large Company want to build a sort of theme park so that the local Pagans and their shops will probably have to close down. Naturally all the old hippies/pilgrims are dead set against this happening. There are dark forces at work in Glastonbury and it is up to Marco and the Watchers to stop it before it's too late and something that Wooly buried years ago once again sees the light of day.
This is a well written book which although is aimed at teenagers is still great for adults. It is a kind of carry on from The Chalice. I am currently reading Marco and the Blade of Night which is shaping up well.

Another good read from the wonderful Mr Rickman. Though for the teen audience, I think most adults would enjoy this. It's funny and a bit scary. Well developed characters.Published 2 days ago by Talltextiles

Although these are technically teen books, the crossover of characters and (as always) excellent writing made this and the sequel must haves for me.Published 16 months ago by Mr Y.
Having been pointed towards Phil Rickman's two "Marco" stories after having read everything else he's written, I decided to give them a go. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Annik Lamotte
