Synopsis

The Keeping Place Obernewtyn Chronicles by Isobelle Carmody

When one of their number is kidnapped, Elspeth and the Misfits are forced to use their extraordinary mind powers to help the rebels in their struggle to overthrow the oppressive Council. But Elspeth has another problem to solve - she is still on her quest to destroy the Beforetime weaponmachines. To find a clue hidden deep in the past, Elspeth must travel the Dreamtrails, but her journeys are fraught with danger as she battles a terrifying winged beast intent on destroying her. Gradually Elspeth realises that her quest will take her back to Obernewytn, and it is here, in its past, as well as its future, that the answers lie.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
