"This is the kind of book that 'Best of Lists' were made for. Nine and Three Quarters out of Ten"
- Graeme's Fantasy Book Review
"Strange and wonderful The World House will take you on a long bizarre journey within four walls, carrying you into dark imaginative regions from room to room, basement to attic, and leave you with the feeling that a journey to the centre of the earth, or to the moon, would be no less exhilarating."
- Garry Kilworth
"Looking back at that first book, I could see how carefully Adams had planted the seeds for what would happen in Restoration, and I applaud him for an effort well done. ... I enjoyed how this novel was intricately woven into the fabric of the first book, giving greater depth to each and creating a richer whole. Restoration is a complicated and tightly knit story of destiny and perseverance, and it’s definitely one of the more unusual tales you’ll pick up."

Guy Adams has done what few manage, a sequel as good as the first.
If you haven't read "The World House", you'll need to before entering "Restoration" or you'll be all at sea.
Not just because of the characters and their back stories but the way in which the House itself performs, and trust me it does.
Without giving away too much, there's a box, when held by someone in a moment of physical danger, transports them (minus the box) to The World House.
The House is essentially a prison for a powerful and evil entity (that humanity hasn't a hope of dealing with), it is a construct of imagination (imagine "Jumanji" on steroids) and now in a state of collapse.
The survivors of the first book must capture the prisoner and ensure the restoration of the house - otherwise our world and others parallel to it, will be destroyed.
It is possible to envisage a third book in this storyline, I do hope so.
Adams is a writer with imagination to spare.
I can give no better praise than to put him in the same sphere as Tim Powers or Clive Barker.
If you liked "Weaveworld" by Clive Barker, then you'll really enjoy these stories by Guy Adams.

This is very simple. This is the worse novel I've ever read. If someone was to ask me what it was about I couldn't answer. Just Brit crap.Published 15 months ago by Manos
