Customer Review

on 13 December 2013
Allure of the Gypsies is the third book in the Windemere series.

It is a huge undertaking to launch into fantasy as a writer, creating a world that the reader can find believable and walk in imagination. Inevitable comparisons are made to the great and good of the genre and a good idea can be hard to sustain through a whole series.

Yallowitz not only sustains but enhances his world, the plot and the characters. I have the distinct feeling that were we to look inside his imagination we would find him wandering the landscape he has created, interacting with his characters as readily as he does with the more sedate reality we generally walk.

There is a depth and confidence in this third book that has grown from the two preceding volumes that makes me wonder, `Where next?'
And more to the pint, `How long before I find out?'

There is a strongly humourous quirk in Mr Yallowitz' writing too, which I have a feeling reflects more of the writer himself than anything else. You get the sense you'd rather like to meet him over a beer.

So.... A fourth book? I hope so!
