Reblogged this on anita dawes and jaye marie. I agree with you wholeheartedly Colleen. Paul has a terrific gift for writing. He so deserves five stars. I so loved his creativity in defining the lineage of the Fey. Who would have thought? I love his historical writings, too.

Colleen, I am incredibly touched by this lovely heartfelt review. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Paul, you are so welcome. Will you be writing another book in this series? Dear Colleen, there are 2 sequels written. I am editing Thomas at present as over the past few years I have become technicaly stronger. Then will start editing the 2nd and 3 books the daughters of Albion and the Thirteenth Treasure. The Daughters of Albion centre around the idea of a mystical link passed down mothe to daughter. The Thirteenth treasure is based on Ancient British mythology. According to the ancient triads of Britain there were 12 sacred treasures that held the spirit of the land.

The thirteenth treasure is the one that holds a lthe scattered treasures together. I cannot tell you what is is but suffice to say it will come as a massive shock when you read it. I am hoping Daughters will be ready Late January and 13th Treasure will follow soon after. There is a taster of the upcoming books here http: I will be happy to help promote these books too.

I loved this book. All my scheduled posts are a mess. It is one heck of a review Debby and one I am incredibly proud of. And I am very toucheed you like my stuff too.

After 60 odd years of reading it is easy to get into bad habits. By this I mean sticking to the tried and tested with regard to genres and authors. This is not healthy when you are a writer yourself, as I have discovered when reading Thomas the Rhymer by Paul Andruss. K Rowling when it was released. I fe After 60 odd years of reading it is easy to get into bad habits. I felt excluded from the millions who did and usually keep my silence in the face of fans.

However, Thomas the Rhymer had me hooked from page one and continued to keep me engaged the entire pages. This is an ensemble piece with a cast of characters that would be happy in starring roles in Alice in Wonderland or any Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. Jack Hughes, Ken, Catherine and the delightful Rosie, along with Thomas with his foot in this world and that of the Fairies; draw you into their inner circle and hold you fast. Each of these wonderfully drawn characters face challenges in their past or present that make them feel isolated until they join forces to protect the most vulnerable amongst them and bring a brother home.

The story will challenge your beliefs in spectacular fashion. Is there another world or worlds running parallel with ours, are fairies sweet and delicate creatures or demons; is that tramp outside the Post Office real or an illusion? As you travel with Jack, Ken and Catherine on their quest, hurtling along ley lines and battling fantastic monsters and evil temptresses, you will find your heart beating a little bit faster. And probably checking under your bed at night! The scenes set in London that criss cross centuries are filled with historical facts distorted with fairy dust.

Next time you are in the city and walking the streets you will be looking into dark doorways and wondering if behind that old oak door with chipped paint lies a nest of elfin waiting to rob you of your senses. The writing is superb with wit, humour and an edge that turns this from a children's fairy story into a multi-generational adventurous fantasy that I believe knocks Harry Potter into a cocked hat!

There are more books to come in the Jack Hughes series and I would love to see the movies.

He had included an image of this book cover at the bottom of his article which immediately drew my attention. This author often writes long historical dissertations so I wasn't sure what to expect.

I took a chance and purchased the Kindle edition. What a delightful surprise! I couldn't put the book down! What I found was a fantastic story about one of my favorite subjects, faeries! Not only was it geared t I stumbled across this book one day while reading a historical piece written by the author. Not only was it geared to the YA genre, but it also included a fair amount of historical fact to make the story shine.

When Jack's older brother Dan is abducted before his very eyes, he is stunned by the mysterious circumstances of his disappearance. The fact that Jack witnessed the strange abduction and doesn't tell his parents only adds to his troubles. One night, Jack starts receiving cell phone calls from Dan, and when he answers, there's no one on the line. He tries to tell his parents and the police the truth about what happened, but every time he opens his mouth to speak, his throat closes up and he is unable to utter a single word.

In the meantime, Jack starts seeing a dirty tramp hanging around his house who only speaks in rhyme. It becomes apparent that no one can see the tramp but Jack, so he enlists the help of his friends to help him solve the mystery behind his brother's disappearance. Jack and his friends are thrust into the magical world of the fey where the kids experience the light and the dark, of a failing faery kingdom.
