Summary

Helen West is coming to terms with her husband's death and trying to cope with her six-year-old son's grief. Jake suffers from nightmares, and visions of what he calls his 'other' life. He talks about a boy called Jacob and a place known only as 'the island'.

Helen's journey to find the source of Jake's torment leads them to North Wales, where the university town of Bangor is in lockdown following a series of student abductions.

When Jake's nightmares start to mirror the abductions, Helen begins to believe her son might have second sight. But what could Jake's island possibly have to do with these crimes? And how can they help without putting their own lives in danger?

It seems that decision will be Jake’s alone.

Good story, bad narrator

This was a really good book but the narrator was dreadful. Not only did she have no idea how to pronounce welsh names and phrases but her voice is so monotonous it sounds like it's computer generated! Being Welsh and living in Wales it was really irritating to listen to her awful attempts at pronouncing welsh names and places. Overall a really good story spoilt by an awful narrator...surely there are Welsh ones?

Mystical murder mystery

This is an intriguing novel set mostly on the rugged coastline of North Wales. There are two storylines which at first seem worlds apart but are actually linked in an interesting way.

On the one hand we have a university city which is being terrorised by a serial rapist and murderer, the crimes are chilling but handled with great subtlety by the author. We then meet young widow Helen who is concerned about her son Jake due to his disturbing nightmares, she seeks help from unusual sources when mainstream medicine lets her down. These two strands are woven together and lead to a dramatic, tense pay-off.

The book is skillfully written and the characters are engaging; you come to care about Helen, Jake, Gareth and Mia. I enjoyed the blend of history, the paranormal and gritty crime drama. The entire story is well paced and handled with the touch of a more experienced author.
