Linda Acaster came upon the premise for the trilogy while researching for a Native American novel.
Description of Torc of Moonlight, Book One:
First in a trilogy of novels set in university cities crowding the North York Moors in northern England.
'Stay away from me. Don’t you understand? People close to me die.'
Nick believes Alice is overreacting. She’s been unlucky in her life, that’s all. Coincidences – they happen all the time.
It had been coincidence that they’d caught each other’s gaze across the lecture room, a trick of the light that had lifted her auburn hair. But is it coincidence that someone, some thing, is distancing him from his friends as the need to possess Alice builds?
Drawn into her obsession with finding the shrine to a Celtic fertility goddess, Nick is in denial… until he sees a jewelled sword fade in his hand and knows that he, or the thing that shadows him, has held it, and bloodied it, long ago. To tell Alice will make her flee. To stay silent could kill her.
An eccentric Brit through & through. Native American re-enactor; enjoys walking sacred landscapes; fascinated by the way myths & legends metamorphose down the centuries; received a museum quality repro c900AD Viking broadsword as a surprise birthday gift. Eccentric, or what?
