I have just finished another draft of ‘Wulf Two’ and it has gone off to my editor. Once again, it features Wulf, Tom Ward, Alice and Spook Johnson but there is also a character who makes a large and unexpected contribution to the story.
A large part of the book belongs to the spook’s world and completes the narrative of the struggle against the evil goddess, Circe. But there are also new elements. At the end of the previous book, Wulf became Spook Johnson’s apprentice but there were hints that he is not a seventh son of a seventh son. So, what is Wulf and what are his special gifts and abilities? In the new book we find out and the story moves in a new direction. Below there is a short extract. I hope that you like it!
‘Very suddenly, the trees ended and I faced a bare rocky slope with hundreds of stone steps that led to a village perched on the high summit of a hill. The buildings gleamed white in the sunlight and right at the top was the largest building of all, complete with marble pillars and architecture that pronounced it to be Grecian. It shone like a palace plucked from a tale of princes and princesses, of magic and heroic deeds.
I knew that I’d almost reached the end of my journey but this was no scene from a wondrous story for the delight and entertainment of children.
Unless they liked nightmares.
I was gazing upon the dwelling of Circe.
Within the walls of her high palace, things spawned in Hell were hiding from the sun.
