“A Sceptre,” Folly then muses. “Fitting for an adventurer. A thing of change, a stave to lean on, a symbol of leadership, and even a weapon.” He takes his card from a pocket and lays it alongside Rhodry’s. “I received the Wisecracker … kind of poetic, given my name. Wisecracker,” he snorts. “My father called me everything from joker and fool to jester, but my mother called me the mischievous wisecracker.” He makes a face. “I don’t carry all my worldly possessions with me in one patterned carpetbag and I’m certainly not a nomad, but I have no idea where I’m going in life or what I’m to do with it. Smile and joke through uncertainty. Isn’t that the usual interpretation? These dice, though, this whistle …?” He blinks, stares, and then taps the cards. “Tarot images. She has a master deck and she plays to win.”

Thank you for a lovely review!

Review: Josiah Stubb

This is definitely Josiah’s story. From lowly beginnings and a strange childhood Josiah rises to become something more. I was horrified by Josiah’s childhood, elated that he discovered love despite that, then horrified that he had to surrender all that was good in his life to embark into the perils of the army … and then elated to know, in the end, hope remains.

From great battles and strategy, through the mud of men in desperation, into unlikely friendships, while delving Josiah’s past, this reader’s emotions went up and down with the tides of war and the reality of society’s bias. An excellent yarn, an emotional journey.

Mr Lovatt clearly did much research into both the battles and the society of the time, for the narration is seamless and intriguing. He brings it to us in full colour, with the smells of gunpowder lacing all.

I thoroughly enjoyed Josiah Stubb and recommend it to history fans, as well as to those of us who adore a tragic love story. Josiah as man and as tale will appeal to a wide audience, I believe, and both man and tale doesn’t disappoint! Well done to the author.

The Tinsal Deck - Update!

Folks, The Tinsal Deck is now available in paperback!

In a society that could be ours, or not, in a time that was, or not, there hunkers a stone castle. Inside is Bronwyn, a woman ruined, a woman with a wooden leg. Before her lays a tarot deck able to manipulate destiny.

Somewhere in the cold dark halls another stalks in stealth, stripped of life, a man who waves crystals over a scarred table. Zanderin is a rogue, a cad, and a supreme sorcerer. He loves the ruthless witch, at least he did.

The cards are dealt, the conflict begins, karma rides towards them in a swift carriage.

This is Tinsal, and this is cosmic vengeance.
