Wicked old Gronwolfe is a twisted old soul with nothing more than vengeful havoc on his mind. Thankfully, this vibrant first work of fantasy fiction by author, Anthony Ravenwood, breathes life into Jacob Gwytherin and Martha Isaf of Aden-Long Mill, childhood sweethearts and the hopeful heroes of the piece. Don’t be fooled by the description of it being set in a sleepy Welsh valley. Deep in those beautiful mountains you’ll find spectacular dryads and gryphons and sinister spirits and hags. Follow a fast-paced quest with a cast of mystical characters who find themselves embroiled in an evil curse destined to destroy the village and kill everyone in its wake. With time ticking and the pressure on, only a miracle could restore peace and return the stolen souls. Will love be enough to fuel the quest? Immerse yourself fully in the author’s vision of the legend by reading the book and listening to the soundtrack. An esoteric body of music written and performed by the author; you’ll almost feel the characters breathing through the notes themselves. Visit to order the CD and for more about Anthony Ravenwood.

  1. Lana Berry

    I bought this for my daughter initially as we have had lots of holidays in Wales and I thought she would enjoy it for that reason and I have have ended up reading it too. She loved it and read the whole thing in two sessions. There are artistic drawings throughout the book and she said they made the story play out even more clearly in her minds eye. It is a traditional good and evil story and had goblin creatures and dragons and things and whilst it’s probably pitched at children, it was a great read for me too. I did the book in one long session and really enjoyed it. If my daughter had been younger, I would have enjoyed reading it to / with her. It’s not too scary but the key points had us both wanting to roll into next chapter to see how things resolved. One final thing which might seem a bit odd to comment on, but the cover has a really lovely feel to it, sort of like a silicone surface, anyway it made the book even nicer to hold. A great Christmas stocking filler.

    My Nephew is 9 and loves anything to do with dragons. I bought this yesterday from the local bookshop but as I use Waterstones a lot I’m putting my review here. I didn’t want to crease it as it’s a gift, so I only read the prologue and a bit of chapter 1, but from what I did see he will love it. I ended up reading it with a Welsh accent in my head, and as it is set in Wales that’s a good thing!

    I bought this for my daughter Amy who had to have a short stay in hospital and she loved it. We live quite near a watermill so there was already a fascination of them for both of us and the story was suitably scary enough (she’s only 13) but not too frightening she wouldn’t want to go visit the mill again.

    She gave it such a nice thumbs up so I read it afterwards and whilst I concur it is a children’s book, it ticked the box for me as a short read that I could then enjoy talking to Amy about.
