Customer Review

on 12 May 2012
This is an interesting collection of thematically connected stories about the 'old gods' - about Pan and his ilk. More specifically, the life such imaginary beings might represent: closer to the cycles of nature perhaps. Not that this is just some hippie-nonsense - as you can tell from the title the author understands the savage, predatory side of nature too.

The writing is generally about creating, and sustaining, the mood that such stories require, rather than dramatic twists and turns - the atmosphere is generally dreamy and hallucinatory, as befits stories that often take place at night, and depending on how you read them might just be extensions of the character's dreams rather than real... Very occasionally the prose becomes too flowery or is slightly too vague, but the author always recovers her balance in a sentence or two.

If the theme at all appeals to you, give it a try.
