A Magical Story
Lanyon's lyrical descriptive writing.
Colin. An appealing mix of stubbornness and youthful hope.
His amazing, distinct vocal characterizations of all the characters in the book.
Yes, when Septimus, who has been assigned to kill Colin even though he loves him, says "I would do anything to save you."
The story is a heady brew of fairies, brownies, witches, humans with magical powers, an ancient monster from the Deep, Celtic legends, and magic spells. Of course, it’s also a suspenseful mystery and a romance. Lanyon places his story in the haunted, wind-swept isles off the northwest coast of Scotland, a location which inspires some of the best, most lyrical descriptive writing he has produced.
The story’s title is a reference to the poem of the same name by Thomas Hardy. Appropriately for the story, the poems last lines are:
“I could think there trembled through
His happy good-night air
Some blessed Hope, whereof he knew
And I was unaware.”
- Tony Squared
