I find PETER SWIFT AND THE SECRET OF GENOUNIA more rewarding for the adult reader than the Harry Potter series. Why? With no dispersion cast on Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, the author of PETER SWIFT is a man who has traveled the paths of Pagan wisdom for many years. Pat Regan has studied and lived the ancient Pagan knowledge and Celt history which echo in the British countryside. J.K. Rowling wrote the first of the Harry Potter series in a city coffee shop and had not spent a lifetime studying Celtic Pagan folkways and history. Pat Regan is the real deal; this is the difference which makes PETER SWIFT such a worthwhile read for adult readers. For the youthful reader, PETER SWIFT AND THE SECRET OF GENOUNIA offers mind-bending time travel and other fantasy and science fiction delights at a thrilling, fast-moving pace. STAR TREK and DR. WHO fans will easily fall into Peter's epic adventure as he discovers an old Roman coin which magically appears on his grandfather's farm. His grandfather Jock has witnessed a disturbing apparition on his farm for many years; suddenly in the snowy woods, young Peter comes face to face with this terrifying phantom! And Peter's astounding adventure begins!

This was an amazing read - I didnt want it to end. He has put his knowledge of the Pagan Religion and Celtic history to good use and it is what makes the book such a "cant put down" book. You simply MUST have a follow up and soon :) review on behalf of Doug Barnett

Others have mentioned a comparison to Pat Regan’s novel here and Harry Potter books. I had thought the same yet this one of Regan’s is far deeper and not loaded with all the puerile ‘witches and broomstick’ Disney – type babble that the stereotypical Potter series goes for. Pat’s inspiration seems to be history and his own Pagan spiritual beliefs (he also wrote The New Pagan Handbook) that rise through the adventures in this time travel classic.

A superb read from an author steeped in our ancient past.The subjects come alive and the places are real.Interwoven into the ancient history of Lancashire,long hidden mysteries come to the surface via a well told storyline.The authors clear love and intimate understanding of his native patch of earth has revealed to us a world of mystery and intrigue told in a unique way.
Old roman forts towns and fortified settlements are cast across the authors storyline;a hidden past now revealed,with characters he brings to life so vividly you could almost reach out and touch them.Our ancient past hasn't been lost,it's just been rediscovered.A superb read.

This is Pats first real voyage into fantasy and I can only say it is brilliant. His obvious knowledge of both the Pagan religion and Celtic history makes this an excellent read. I was enthralled from start to finish its a "cant put down book" and hopefully a follow up to the story will soon be with us. Looking forward to this Pat, get writing ASAP.
