4.0 out of 5 stars A good fireside yarn, January 24, 2011
This review is from: Fynoderee (Paperback)
This book appealed to me as a lover of folklore, mythology, and great storytelling. It is a tale of good (fynoderees, fairies, and humans) versus evil (bugganes), stock characters out of the legends of the Isle of Man. The author has a deft hand and lets the characters provide the dramatic thrust and the Isle itself the atmosphere. There are plenty of references to contemporary villages and landscape that will be familiar to residents of Mann, and for those of us who've never been there enough earthy description to make us feel that we know the place well.

The tale is for the most part standard fantasy writing but with a (to me) completely unexpected twist towards the end. I highly recommend this for all ages, with the caveat that some of the action can only be described as gruesome.

I'm looking forward to a promised sequel!
