The plot is fairly straightforward, but that isn’t the selling point of the book. Sure, there is a murder/suicide mystery, a budding romance, social conflict and the whole saving the world thing that carries the story along, but the richness is in the world Chrys Cymri has created. Her characters are well developed and diverse and the details of both the mundane world and that of Lloegyr are fleshed out enough to swallow you whole.
Father Penny is easy to sympathize with and fun to follow as she goes about her daily life as a Vicar for an unappreciative little town, while trying to balance her role as protector of the Lloegyr secret. I know exactly nothing about her religion, but was so easily drawn into her world I could smell the musky odor of the church every time she walked in there. Her companions are equally engaging. Before long, you will find yourself looking for gryphons on your bookshelves and peeking out the window hoping to catch a glimpse of a baby unicorn.
Chrys Cymri has created a treasure with the world of Lloegyr and the Father Penny is an absolutely endearing character to follow as a tour guide. I can’t wait to read more!
Much of this volume describes the further development of the dragon and a snail shark. The unicorns are the judges of the other world. Their horns have miraculous healing powers, just like ours down the block.
A possible spoiler in this paragraph: Penny, our heroine, acts to preserve the almost untouched hidden world from being destroyed by people from our world. The scene in which she does this is hilarious. The author carefully builds the entrance to the scene and then removes the threat. It's the first time in the series that the author leaves small scale commentary on social problems to judge our larger society. A bit of commentary from the Vicar.
For the first time we are shown that life is not perfect in the other world, a theme which continues in the next book, Book 3.
Reading what I have written, I don't seem to have shown you how good the writing is. This book is well written and very well worth reading. It often is very, very funny. If you're new to this series I suggest you read Book 1 first so you can see the characters develop. As I write this Book 1 is only 99 cents at most.
My favorite part was the reality-fantasy mix - the things that exist that only some are aware of and experience - such as Penny White:
"Penny, you’re a trusted vicar and priest. You have an otherworldly snail in a tank, a gryphon in your kitchen, and there’s a dragon landing in your back garden. Of course I believe you."
Author Chrys Cymri - a brit - weaves in references to Dr. Who episodes. I took notes as if she thinks they are worth a mention I want to check them out. I'm in a bit of awe at such an accomplishment as this book - someone who has written a memoir but no talent like this lady has to write such fiction. Even though I got lost a bit in parts to me the book is simply brilliant.
