Andrea K Höst

Australian writer of science fiction and fantasy.
The Moon of Gomrath: A Tale of Alderley - Alan Garner Continuing on from The Weirdstone of Brisingamen: A Tale of Alderley, The Moon of Gomrath sees Susan and Colin continuing to be drawn into the magical issues which entangled them. They have made an enemy, and victory in one battle has not won any wars.Again the tone of the story is high legend, the magic overwhelming, frightening, inexorable. A series of frightening events, and the kind of throbbing, highly-cadenced description which is rarely found in more recent stories.A good tale for children who like a thrill of horror, though again without any particular individuality from the two main characters who are "the children" rather than bringing forth any noteable personality.
