Subtitle : Book 1 The Druids Guise Trilogy
I found this an absorbing story and I enjoyed the various creatures constructs and characters very much. I liked the dual realities idea although this first book seemed to move from one to the other in a slightly frenetic way that seemed to interrupt the narrative flow a tiny bit.
I am not quite sure where it sits in terms of genre, sometimes a little young for a young adult audience, Wyatt seems to be fairly unworldly for a fifteen year old so his innocence in the strangeness of Hagion does not have the degree of contrast that a more considered teen persona might have.
That being said in places the story is a little old for a younger child audience, it is heavy on the violent death and has some moderate cursing that would be unsuitable for younger readers.
I am sure that it will find a niche audience however ,It was a strong foundation for what i think is a very promising series, the action ratchets up at a fair pace as the final third unfolds and the cliffhanger will encourage return readers.
Solid three stars.
