    The author of Graven Images is quite a well known astronomer, so I was expecting this first novel to either be sci fi or a geeky attempt at literature Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to find a well rounded, very readable page turner which revolves around the protagonist, Owen The whole book is from his point of view, but Owen is very fallible, and sometimes gets it wrong, which adds to the depth and enjoyment Owen has a lovely complicated character which grows depth through the book The The author of Graven Images is quite a well known astronomer, so I was expecting this first novel to either be sci fi or a geeky attempt at literature Instead, I was pleasantly surprised to find a well rounded, very readable page turner which revolves around the protagonist, Owen The whole book is from h...

    Not bad for a first novel A good suspenseful plot line, and the main character Owen is very strong Some of the other characters are a bit weak, and the baddies are definitely OTT But it keeps you going to the end A good read.

    Quite an interesting read If only wiccans and pagans were this interesting, but we are yet to see wiccan terrorists out there.

    A bit of a slow start, but gets going in the middle which makes it worth persisting
