Product description

Synopsis

When Gray retrieves an engraved narwhal's tusk from the sea disturbing changes begin to happen to both marine and bird life. The islanders suspect Gray's unusual powers of being able to communicate with seals and other creatures as the cause of the unrest. They find the tusk he has hidden away and fear that an ancient prophecy threatening the island will come to pass since they have always considered the narwhal as an omen of disaster. Gray finds himself a victim of a confused and complex web of superstition as the islanders decide a ritual sacrifice must be made. How can he prove his innocence and escape their final condemnation of him? Narwhal was shortlisted for the Cinnamon Press Awards.

About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR I was born in a small mining village in South Yorkshire. I was able, however, even as a small child, to escape to the countryside to be alone with my love of nature. I wrote poetry from a very early age and my first novel at fourteen. But later the pressures of teaching full time and raising a family meant that writing was put on the back burner. When I started teaching part time, I began to write seriously and have since written seven children's novels and most recently a trilogy for young teenagers. My books seem to be peopled with strong gutsy heroines who are prepared to go through hell, fire and damnation to reach their goals. Although my current novel which takes place on the Isles of Scilly has a hero for a change. Many of my books centre around places that have intrigued me like Costa Rica which is the background to Return of the Quetzal, Syria which is the arena for a dark mystery and Tibet which features strongly in The Eye of the Mandala. Indeed several readers have been impressed with my detailed knowledge of other countries and I quote "Having read your "Quetzal", I was struck by the authenticity and verisimilitude of its setting and wondered if you had actually researched it in Costa Rica, or indeed lived there for some time. Please do let me know since I'm very keen to settle there, especially during the period of our formidable winters" Charles Muller MA. PhD. DLitt. And from the same reader "I am certainly hugely impressed by your grasp of the country. Indeed , after reading "Quetzal" I was convinced you had grown up there." Rachel Hinckley of The Literary Consultancy says about Quetzal "The author demonstrates what is obviously a greatly detailed knowledge of the Costa Rican country and its history both contemporary and ancient."
