About the author
Carolyn Mathews' English Language writing and teaching career included a stint with a class of 'Harry Potter' extras at the local Warner Bros. studio, Hertfordshire. With so much magic in the air, it's
no wonder she now writes fiction with more than a hint of the supernatural.

Not having read the first book in the series, I did feel at a bit of a disadvantage trying
to keep up with the myriad of characters. Although there is a handy cast list at the beginning, I did find it a bit of a pain having to flick backwards and forwards to find out who everyone was. Once I had the characters established, I enjoyed the story and
warmed to Pandora, even though I personally didn’t get the ‘sound healing’, the paranormal friend Enoch or the animal whispering or the mystical elixir of life. One or two of the components would have perhaps been credible to a sceptic but
all of them together stretched my imagination just a bit too far. I am sure, however, that these themes will appeal to many others.
