Every Shadow Holds A Secret
Gill McKnight: Goldenseal

When Amy Fortune returns to her childhood home, she discovers something sinister in the air – but is former lover Leone Garoul stalking her or protecting her? Amy Fortune and Leone Garoul were teenage lovers. Now, years later, Amy returns to Little Dip, the Garoul home valley to help her aunt finish a botanical project. Except Little Dip is no longer the happy place of Amy’s childhood memories. There’s something sinister in the woods. And why hasn’t Leone moved on? Why does she still dog Amy’s every move? As more and more of the Garoul family arrive for a special hunting weekend, parts of the puzzle come together and Amy’s fears escalate as she moves closer to the truth – and the secret that has eluded her since childhood.

Gill McKnight: Goldenseal Every Shadow Holds A Secret

Igen… érdekes olvasmány.
Unalomig sok benne az önismétlés, illetve az egész történet egy deus ex machinán indul el, ami nem volt elegáns húzás.
Leone és Amy kapcsolata szürreális, akár egy Bosch festmény maga. Amy viselkedése sokszor teljesen ellentmond mindennek, leginkább saját magának.
A katarzis a történet végéről elmarad, cserébe helyet hagy egy csomó 'na jó, de miért?' kérdésnek.

Fantasynek közepesen jó volt, szinte érdekes klánkaland. Kicsit újragondolva sokkal több mindent ki lehetett volna hozni belőle.

There’s a bear out there. I know there is. I don’t care what Leone says, there’s a big, hungry bear, and he’s got my scent. Eau de poopoopants--

Connie was already a recognized wildlife artist, and Amy’s English father was as famed for his abstracts as he was for his drinking. Both her parents preferred to view reality through the bottom of a rose-tinted bourbon glass.

“Will you be okay getting back home? You know not to leave the path or talk to strangers?” She smiled syrup sweet.
“Very funny. But now that I’ve delivered grandma to her cottage I’ll try to get back without being eaten by the big, bad wolf,”

“I love soffits and spandrels.” Soffits and spandrels were the only architectural terms Leone knew, apart from door. But it was worth a try.
