Publisher's Summary

A mysterious book of prophecies, written by a sixth century Irish monk, has puzzled scholars through the ages. Foretelling wars, plagues and rebellions, the Black Book of Bran is said to have predicted the Black Death and the Gunpowder Plot. But is it the result of divine inspiration or the ravings of a madman? A hidden hoard of Saxon gold. A poisoned priest. A monk skinned alive in Westminster Abbey. Only one thing is certain: whoever comes into possession of the cursed book meets a gruesome and untimely end...

Contrived

An artificial collection of stories built around a common theme. Did not really come up to the expectations anticipated from such high quality authors. The stories were contrived - and a a result less than satisfactory.

The Good, the Bad & the Mediocre

I bought this book as it sounded just that little bit different. It started excellently, but went downhill and the ending was atrocious. Some of the tales were superb, one or two were vaguely disappointing, and the end tale was appalling - I agree with the reviewer who feels cheated out of the 'real' ending. I usually listen twice to all my new books, but memories of that ending have stopped me thus far. All books should have a beginning, a middle and an end, with the latter of these being the most important; if somebody knows where the real ending can be found, please let me know.
