I found this quote for this book: “Everything you can imagine is real”.
This new revamp of this book is very evident. The author totally rocked the cover, it says so much on its own. The stories I’ve read in the first edition were good, but you can tell the author revisited his story and tweaked them. The characters get inside your head because it’s not hard to imagine their story. My feelings were all over the place with Patrick’s story, so many people can relate with him on trust issues.
The last story is new to me, “The Night” The author scared the daylight out of me with this one! A child’s imagination makes for a great read, or is it Anna’s imagination? A big house with creaky floorboards, a child crying wolf all the time. Now Anna’s faced with a decision to run to her father and tell him of her suspicion or let her family be stabbed to death. It’s a very well written book that you’ll enjoy reading because everyone has something in common with the characters.
It’s 1976, and hippie student Colin and his new girlfriend, Kate, begin their life together during that heatwave summer. But something—or someone—intrudes into Colin’s mind and won’t go away. It leads them to unwind an extraordinary tale, taking them back to events some 500 years ago, to Jusuf, Rodrigo and Gwenna.
Who are they, though, and what is their link with Colin and Kate? And what’s the sinister mystery at the heart of their story that threatens the very existence of Colin and Kate’s own world?
A fresh and original time-slip novel of romance, revenge, religion, and redemption, where twentieth-century England’s North West and fifteenth-century Cornwall are unforgettably evoked with colour, richness and wit. If you like beautifully engrossing tales of mystery and intrigue, you will love
The Forebear’s Candle.
Created by master storyteller Clive S. Johnson, author of Solem (Fantasy) and Beyond Ever Blue Skies (Science Fiction), and the six volumes of the Realm of Dica Series (Fantasy).
