A Gathering of Twine

A Gathering of Twine - Martin Adil-Smith A Gathering of Twine (The Spirals of Danu )is a gripping novel; one that some might find challenging to read but is well worth the effort. The author's writing style and techniques make this a page turner. As reader, you find yourself determined to unravel the complex story that alternately takes you back, across and forward in time in search of truth.

At the onset of the novel, the writer uses his fictional author, Freeman, scriptural references and vivid characters to remind readers, "A chain of events has been set in motion..." . These unnamed events are shrouded in fear, deceit, and supernatural forces that seem to be overpowering the world. The reader becomes an integral part of this attention commanding chain of events in search of answers. Questions of good and evil; free will versus pre-destined fate; and reality versus fantasy cause the reader to question and evaluate personal beliefs as they might be influenced by such powerful forces.

The author's style is reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock. When reading I felt an overriding sense of doom but anticipated an unexpected twist in the story line. That unexpected twist was revealed at the end when I learned that the conclusion of the story is in the author's next novel.

I commend Mr. Adil-Smith for this page turning novel and can't wait for mystery to reveal itself in the next novel in his series!
