Review by riverwillow
The threat from the Dark feels very real and very urgent in this instalment of the Sequence and this makes for a compelling read. As before Cooper effortlessly blends the Welsh landscape into her story, interweaving myths and legends into the fabric of her story. Plus there is a handy guide to Welsh pronunciation. Superb
