From the Back Cover

When Ned Malise fears he is turning into a wolf, he must go on the run to escape his pursuers and seek a ‘cure’. Set in the seventeenth century when werewolves were tried and hanged like witches, 'Quicksilver' is an exciting and richly evocative novel.

Is there such a thing as a werewolf? 'Quicksilver' is no horror story, but in its fabulously vivid recreation of 17th Century England and Holland, it portrays a young man suffering from lycanthropy – when a man believes himself to be a wolf. This was a time when medical science was undergoing vast changes and the discovery of the New World was yielding up all sorts of new plants and drugs, and Christie Dickason weaves a pulsating story of intrigue, adventure and romance around this extraordinary set of circumstances.

Format: Hardcover
This book was at first a bit unnerving for me. As the sequel, and "flipped hero" story from Dickason's The Lady Tree, I was charmed by the young boy Malise, then scared and terrified by his transformations. His total sensual delight in the bustling, colourful and smelly Amsterdam of his time was thrilling to follow. As one sensed a change and a developing anxiety on his part, the reader too, becomes breathless and a bit uneasy. Oddly, the descriptions of his "out of self" sense of animal, or wolfishness, resembled circumstances we now refer to as "seizures". I wonder if 'historical reports' of lycanthropy could be attributed to this medical condition? Author Dickason stretches us with this book, and we do feel tremendous empathy for Malise, the hard villain of the proceeding book. It is a good, but difficult read. We now need another book to bring this story full circle. Buy it!

Format: Paperback
This is a highly original historical novel by the still under-rated Christie Dickason. It's about Ned Malise, the apparent villain of THE LADY TREE the first volume in THE LADY TREE trilogy. A post modern look at the werewolf myth, it combines a strong and exciting narrative with fascinating insights into seventeenth century medicine and psychology.

I love all of Christie Dickason's books. She brings the period alive and brings a new perspective to historical characters.
