Drinking Midnight Wine by Simon R Green

Drinking Midnight Wine

Simon R Green

A well-paced fantastical thriller dealing with the age-old fight of good versus evil. Although plot-driven, this is not done to the detriment of the characters - they all have quite recognisable characteristics and qualities that make them compelling - irrespective of whether they are good or evil.

Extract

The magical world is like an overlay on the real world, and though the real cannot see the magical, it can sometimes still be affected by it. But there has always been traffic between the two, mostly from Mysterie to Veritie, as beings of various kinds exchange the gaudier joys of magic for the more secure bedrock of reality. And there have always been those with a foot in both worlds, like Jimmy Thunder and the Waking Beauty. Many apparently ordinary people and things cast powerful shadows in Mysterie and, of course, vice versa.
