Quicksilver by Christie Dickason

Quicksilver

Christie Dickason

Born in exile to an English Catholic. Sworn to revenge by the grandmother who brought him up. It might seem that Ned Malise had enough problems without suspecting himself to be a werewolf! This huge novel is a serious exploration of seventeenth century beliefs and values. At times hard going but well worth pursuing to the, surprisingly, upbeat end.

Extract

She still would not turn him over to the hunt ... revulsion at the mob in the street had stopped her turning him over to the militia. But now? How did one know a murderer?
