The final book in the chilling Tales From the Wyrd Museum, following hot on the heels of The Woven Path and The Raven's Knot, is a thrilling conclusion to an excellent series, and is also a great "stand- alone" book for anyone who has a love of powerful images, masterful wordsmithery and mysterious and passionate drama.
The Wyrd Museum is located in a dark and dingy alley-way in London's East End, and cared for by the strange Webster sisters. But something has come to disturb the slumbering shadows and watchful walls of the forbidding museum and Miss Ursula Webster prepares to fight to the death with the strange new threat. Neil Chapman, caught in the unforgiving Web of Fate, is drawn into the battle, but is there really anyway he can stop the tide of time and Doom?
A cracking good read, bone-chilling in the extreme and edge-of-your-chair exciting to the bitter end, The Fatal Strand is the kind of book that older readers who enjoy being frightened out of their wits for pleasure will clamour to read. Certainly not one for the fainthearted, but a darn good read from Robin Jarvis whose remarkable imagination coupled with his extraordinary storytelling talent will make him a favourite with anyone who loves a good fright. (Ages 11 and over). --Susan HarrisonReview:
