Reviews of Gwydion's Dawn posted on Amazon UK
- 'A real page turner! I found Gwydion's Dawn very hard to put down. A well paced story of mystery with very enjoyable characters. Set in and around Glastonbury, giving the story a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.' ***** Charlotte Smith.
- 'Thoroughly fun. Fleshly raiments, am I glad to have discovered this wryly humorous mystery - it pulled me in, not just with the ornate descriptors, but by virtue of it also being a mystery, holding my attention as I lumbered through the stout grandiloquence. You can rest assured that I shall be perusing other works from this esteemed scribe.' ***** D.
- 'Nicely done! Engaging and has the trick of being relevant to the genre while also being innovative and surprising.' ***** Kath Baker.
- 'Another excellent story. The story was well thought out with a cast of characters that quickly become believable and bring the story to life. I do not wish to introduce spoilers as even one could affect your enjoyment.' **** Malcolm D.
From the Author
Glastonbury has long harboured a reputation for being something of a magnet for what are often termed alternative types, and in many respects, it constitutes a fossilised capsule of hippiedom in the English West Country. Its high street is more so than just in name, and is graced with an unusual collection of shops infrequently found elsewhere, selling anything from crystals, to hemp clothing, occult literature and the various accoutrements of 'head' culture. A number of its inhabitants can thus be said to veer a little on the eccentric side, but that is part of the charm of this small town, whose fortunes have long been preserved by the aura of Arthurian myth that adhere to the Tor and the ruined abbey. Still, the opportunities for satire that this provides are many, and there are elements of the tale told here that grew out of the author's own youthful experiences, and contact with this unusual world.
