Review On the Edge of Darkness

The eagerly awaited new novel by the author of LADY OF HAY and HOUSE OF ECHOES is the story of a woman trapped in the wrong time Abandoned by her twentieth century lover she plots a terrible revenge on him and his family Adam Craig is fourteen when near an isolated Celtic stone in the wild Scottish Highlands he meets Brid whose exotic gypsy like dress and stran. I bought this book in a thrift shop years ago it ended up on my shelf and I never picked it up I figured it was about time I read it either I would enjoy it finish it and get it off my shelf or I would not enjoy it abandon it and also get it off my shelf Win winIt started off much better than I expected it was fast paced and intriguing However the I progressed the certain things started to bother me One I had expected and hoped there would be a lot about the 6th century but there was only little and what there was was not infomative at all 95% of the book is set in the present day well 1935 1990 but not 6th century Two after a while the book got a bit repetitive and long winded it could have been much shorter without losing much of the story Three all the stuff regarding Brid Broichan and Meryn was never well explained It seemed like the author just liked to write a book on time travel but didn t give a thought to how this would occur or how Brid was able to do the things she did Especially the ending was very rushed All in all a finished book and one less on my shelf

Ge attitudes fascinate him They become friends then in time passionate lovers Brid leads him unsuspecting into the sixth century where training as a Druid priestess she has mastered their ancient mysteries and powerful magic In her obsession with Adam she is seen as a traitor by her people and only escapes death by following Adam through time to Edinburgh where. This has been sat on my bookshelf for a while now I m glad I ve read this book because I did really enjoy it It is a little dark and sinister in places but it added an extra something to the story I know some of the places around Hay that featured in the story it was really nice being able to picture the scenery from memory and not just imagination Some of the characters I really liked others I really didn t care much for So overall I really enjoyed it

He goes to study medicine As the years pass he makes new friends and finds new love causing Brid to be consumed by a violent rage that knows no bounds For fifty years from Scotland to England to Wales Brid will haunt Adam like an evil shadow It is finally Adam's granddaughter Beth who helps discover the secret that will free them from the terror of Brid's curs. I found it to be a bit of a slow start a lot of attention to very trivial and mundane details that sometimes made it a bit of a boring read It picked up about halfway through when we got to see what Brid was truly capable of and how affected Adam was by it Essentially when the pair of them have grown up and left childhood I was left a little disappointed at the ending though and I don t know why It left me a little angry After following Adam along for nearly the entire span of his life and in the slow parts trust me it feels like you ve been reading it for years I expected a bit from the very end It was however well written and made me interested to read of Erksine s work

    My second Barbara Erskine read after HIDING FROM THE LIGHT Not as good as HIDING; it's a little slow for my liking

    It was a long journey that revolves around the beyond lustful obsessed psychopath Druid bitch over Adam fvcking Craig And when I say it was a long journey it was definitely a long journey And my brain cells were drained to bits

    This was a good but not a great read It was an interesting twist on the time travelling with our 6th century Druid Princess so out of place in the 20th century that she spends much of her time locked up in an asylum Rightly so because she is a psychopath She is obsessed with Adam a medical student then alcoholic Doctor from the mid 20th century who is such a jerk she must be crazy The book takes a long time to get to

    I have read all of Barbara Erskine's books and really enjoyed them However this one was not one of my favourites It was an intriguing story and I really enjoy how she pulls in characters from other novels she has written but this book seemed to be very drawn out when the story could have been told in far fewer pages and been just as good particularly as the ending seemed uite abrupt I also thought some of the background

    This was a hard book to love The hero is somewhat careless of the women in his life to say the least and what could have been a fascinating link to the Pictish past became only abhorrent obsessionI think I would have preferred it if it was made clear that power was the corruption of her spirit rather than the relentless pursuit of A
