Since its publication, Purefinder has received more reviews.
As promised, here’s the round-up.
[Just don’t sing the theme tune to Toy Story 2’s ‘Woody’s Round Up’ while reading Gothic horror links, it sort of spoils it.]
- ‘…definitely an enjoyable read….Gwalchmai utilises many of the tools you’d find in a traditional Gothic horror novel but presents them in a new way, which kept me reading until the end…’ ~ Beth, Judging Covers
- ‘…he evokes the atmosphere of London’s seedy underbelly with brilliant, and often shocking, prose…Ben Gwalchmai is an outstanding storyteller, who is brave enough to write historical fiction in an unusual and unsettling way. I would highly recommend this book to all who dare undertake the journey’ ~ Angela Buckley, VictorianSuperSleuth.com
- ‘…a remarkable piece of work’ ~ Rebecca Carter, Janklow and Nesbitt
- ‘Intriguing, vivid.’ ~ John Hunt, Zero Books
- ‘…you get the best of both worlds – a novel that engages with and criticises our political establishment, and a novel that is packed with original and vivid characters that populate Victorian London, and continue to populate our London of today. …The characterisation is rich, that ‘living geography’ of the city pulls you in, and the political themes and analogies are cleverly drawn.’ ~ Sian Norris, Sian & Crooked Rib
