About the Author-
Fay Sampson has written many books, with a focus on fantasy and Celtic history. She is a winner of the Barco de Vapor award and has been shortlisted 3 times for the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize.
I’m glad this isn’t going to be the only book in this series, because I was captivated the entire time. I couldn’t put it down, so it was a good thing supper was cooking in the oven.
There was an underlying sadness though the book, because of Jenny’s cancer. (I wish cancer wouldn’t occupy so many books.) The cancer was a large part of the book and it almost took over the murder mystery, but fortunately it did not.
I could see how Pennant Melangell was one of the places in the world where there is a fine line between the old world and today. Fay Sampson did a wonderful job of showing it through her descriptions.
I would highly recommend this book to all mystery fans. I’m looking forward to the second volume in the series.
