An engaging read that takes you on an adventure! It is written well and the personal style makes it very easy to relate to Barry. If you are considering teaching English abroad, read this book to set your mind in the right direction.

This review is from: Turner (Kindle Edition)
Don't read this book if you are easily creeped out! The book starts out nice enough but read with trepidation, as it soon descends into horror and gore. The vividly descriptive scenes of the evil 'Lord John' will leave you chilled!

Drinkwater writes in a fluid, descriptive style that flits between idyllic depictions of the Welsh wilderness and bloodstained portrayals of the sinister underworld that lies beneath the surface. It is the tension between these two simultaneously existing worlds that creates dramatic tension in the story, and slowly hooks the reader until they are unable to resist turning the page!

Characters are introduced in a logical progressive manner as they enter the story, and are described in a believable and relatable way. But if they don't pay attention, the unvigilant reader might find themselves lost in the fast moving plot and start to question the characters motives. Although tension is built through the novel in a natural and engaging way, crucial actions that define the plot at times seem to come a little suddenly, with little introduction.

Another interesting touch is the anecdotal quotes that mark the beginning of each chapter. These not only add interest but build more dramatic tension by hinting at the events to come. All in all, I think this is a great novel for fans of this genre, and one thing is for sure, you won't think quite the same way about remote islands in Wales again!
