"A Powerful and fascinating foray into the future of science and its unforeseen consequences"
Purest Evil threatens Renegates and Townies alike. Can Geraint unite these warring factions in time to save Oxford?
Geraint’s life is Hell. He despises his father’s scavenging lifestyle and loathes the brutal training designed to make him worthy of being the next Renegate leader., but light brightens Geraint’s darkness when he meets Siany, a Townie girl who teaches him how to read, write and believe in himself. This meeting of souls awakens strong powers in both of them, with prophetic dreams helping Geraint to save Siany’s family from cut-throat bandits, who go on to besiege Oxford, a stepping stone to ruling the land. Geraint and Siany’s role in uniting their peoples against this evil is crucial, working alongside the legendary Archer. When the warrior’s nemesis joins the murderous band, death and destruction seem inevitable.
The saga continues and destinies evolve in Geraint (Hengist - People of the Horse Book 5) from author Jacky Gray. Refreshingly at odds with a host of cliché-ridden novels which worm their way up the bestseller lists, Gray has penned an original and rich story world that’s easy to fall in love with. Drawing you in from the first page, the medieval overtures are particularly well thought out and integrated into the fabric of the modern world Gray has created, whilst her narrative is thoughtful and engaging. Filled with complex characters, they don’t come any better than Geraint whose intriguing personality becomes satisfyingly more intricate as the plot evolves. For fans of the Hengist series this will come as no surprise. Gray isn’t one to pen unwieldy tomes, but through a certain economy of prose she always finds the right balance to bring her characters to life and make them increasingly endearing.
A rousing and highly entertaining page turner, Geraint proves a fine addition to the Hengist series and is sure to be well received by its many fans. One you won’t want to miss, it is highly recommended.
