Genre: Science Fiction / Fantasy
Three stories, separated by five thousand years, united by one deadly secret:
Somewhere, sometime, the stone is waiting.
Trespass combines gritty, edgy modern-day action with a thrilling adventure across time. Discovered over 5,000 years ago, the Darkeningstone affects everyone who finds it.
Jake was too smart to believe the rumours about Scaderstone Pit, but now he's in more danger than he could ever have imagined.
In 1939, as World War II looms, the lives of two men will be changed forever.
Over 5,000 years ago, a hermit will keep the stone a secret. But someone is watching him - someone with murder in his heart.
When it finds you, what will you see when you look into The Darkeningstone?
I would have to admit that the modern segment did not grip me as much as the other time zones. The character of Jake is well written and it certainly echoes modern school life but this is where it's weakness is. Jake is not a powerful character, he's bullied and a bit of an angry man... and occasionally hard to read.
Having said that however, the rest of the book is an interesting read. I enjoyed the segments written in BC. The characters of Waecan and Burlic springing off the page.
A well written, enjoyable read.
