The Wood Wife

Reviewed by David Rankine

This is one of my favourite fictional works ever! It is superbly constructed, beautifully written and rattles along at a good pace, holding your interest. It is one of those books that is best appreciated in a single sitting, exploring the theme of the magick in the land, and the spiritual creatures which inhabit it. The interaction of the characters is very strong and well-written, and it does not fall down anywhere. This is a perfect book for any occasion, and anyone who loves the land should buy and read it.
