Editorial Reviews

Review

"I read the first book in this series in a day and a half, and I read this one even quicker. In this installment, Archer is sent to modern day England and has the same kind of problems with bullies that he had at home. I love the way he handles himself in some pretty horrible situations and the way he finds justice for those involved." - Andrea Domanski, Author, Crossfire

"The book has plenty of laugh out loud moments as the author uses her keen observation to wriggle out laughs from even the unlikeliest of sources. Archer is the kind of hero who inspires you to awaken the hero in you and should be a hit with readers everywhere." - Moterwriter 

"Another of Jacky Gray's books which involve the reader to look at life's adventures through mystical all seeing eyes. Jacky's in touch with what kids and adults - after all we are all big kids - wish to read. Woven into the words as the pages unfold is a journey that we can all relate to and for me that is the magic of a good writer." - Maria Wheatly, Author and Master Dowser

"Like the best successor volumes, Rory has all the virtues of the first, with a kind of ease and assurance about it which make for very smooth reading." - Ronald Hutton, Professor of History at Bristol University

From the Author

I never planned for the second book Rory, the original idea was to go straight from Archer (a Warrior) to Reagan (a Magi) then onto Slater (an Outil). But I was called to Glastonbury on Beltane, where I was instructed to put Archer into our world to emphasise the contrasts. 
 
So Archer travels to modern-day England where he is shocked by the differences - he has never seen a light switch, let alone a computer. The biggest difference is in the attitudes, particularly in people of his own age. Rory is someone he can relate to, but every other teenager he meets wants nothing better than to torment him. Just as Archer finds some common ground with Peter and his gang, a misunderstanding at school means he is thrust into a new foster home where he meets an entirely new adversary - a stroppy punk Mandy. As she lures him further into her shady world of shop-lifting, he cannot help but be bewitched by the vulnerable girl under all that aggression. 
 
This book practically wrote itself, after 10 years teaching teens, they sprang to life with no research required. In fact the difficult job was restricting it - when you have a cast of thousands to choose from, it's difficult not to keep introducing bit players, but I hope I have kept it down to a manageable level. While none of them are based on anyone in particular, I'm sure one or two of the traits and attitudes of these characters will resonate with today's teens.
