My estimation of Amazon.ca books has just risen by 100% with the inclusion of this great Canadian book on its list of offerings! (Sorry, I know too many exclamation marks isn't good writing but...I'm THAT excited to find this book here!!!). Although this is not a newly published novel it deserves to be widely read and to be added to literature lists in highschools and universities for its diamond-brilliant craftsmanship.
Green has a style like no one else and can say more with 3 words that most people can in 100 pages. Although known most famously in the Sci-Fi realm, Terrence M. Green's writing in the trilogy set that completes (or perhaps STARTS) with St. Patrick's Bed is masterful. Not only are his characters compelling and finely drawn, the plots themselves are wonderfully thought out and set down.
All I can say to Mr. Green is 'Thank you and ....MORE PLEASE' and to all the readers out there - do yourself a favour and READ THIS BOOK.....and when you do let's just hope Amazon also will have 'St. Patrick's Bed' and "Shadow of Ashland" on offer as I proudly do on my bookshelf to recommend to all my friends and to be read over and over. You're going to want to know all about the characters populating each book. And, if you have any aspirations of ever being a writer, now is the time to.....GO GREEN!!!!
