An urban fantasy, read by Robert PowellReview:
“A spellbinder. The secret of Garner’s magic is that it is stripped of whimsy… A beautiful work of poetic imagination, it deserves to become a classic of fantasy.”
“Each detail, ordinary or sinister, establishes atmosphere, background or character exactly. Elidor is a remarkable book: intelligent, rich and terrifying.”
“An outstanding book.”
“Adventure of a staggering grandeur… beautiful, profound, disturbing. His myths and terrors seem to me immortal.”
The New Christian
“Ambitiously imagined and worked out with a hard economical tension. The climax, a peak after chapters of mounting terror, is brilliant.”
The New Statesman
