Journeys in the Dead Season product reviews

"So little natural light falls into my cell, and I have such a limited view from my window, that at times I feel as though I am entombed within a coffin... Down here, deep within the soil, I must content myself with mental excursions only, tripping beneath the canopies of forests that exist solely in the mind..."

A prisoner is on remand in Durham high security jail for what turns out to have been a series of attacks on young girls across Leicestershire, culminating in abduction, rape and murder.

In the autumn of 1922 Captain Crowe is on a journey across Leicestershire. He intends to visit his old comrades from the war and finish writing his book on horticulture.

The prisoner is reading a copy of Crowe's book, Perambulations of a Solder: Autumn to Winter. Crowe's retelling of his odyssey in his letters, there subsequent appearance within Perambulations and the prisoner's interpretation of them create a macabre fusion of past and present where fact and fiction, truth and reality, begin to merge and coalesce...
Juxtaposing the experiences of a shell-shock victim in the early 1920s with the recollections of an alleged child-murderer in the present day, Journeys in the Dead Season is a masterpiece of psychological complexity and subtlety. In the vein of writers such as Kazuo Ishiguro and Beryl Bainbridge, Spencer Jordan plays with voice, place and time to create an enthralling narrative that is both metaphysically haunting and deeply compelling.

Product reviews for listing 2511: The Seven Realms #1 - The Demon King -  Written by Cinda Williams Chima

Product image for The Seven Realms #1 - The Demon KingTimes are hard in the mountain city of Fellsmarch. Reformed thief Han Alister will do almost anything to eke out a living for himself, his mother, and his sister Mari. Ironically, the only thing of value he has is something he can't sell. For as long as Han can remember, he's worn thick silver cuffs engraved with runes. They're clearly magicked - as he grows, they grow, and he's never been able to get them off.
