Rev Ian Miller


What a great story.... it drew me in and kept me captivated until the end. I think it was written primarily with children in mind. Well I can be a big wean. I identified with the characters. They are deftly drawn and believable. It reminded me of the books I used to read when I was young, sometimes by torchlight, under the blankets long after I should have been sleeping. The same nostalgic feeling of not being able to put the book down, desperate to find out of the "baddies" got their due desert. There were also plenty twists and turns to keep me guessing. Paul catches the nature of Scotland's islands perfectly and its and weather!!! . His description of the sea journey with the storm lashing the boat had me tasting the salt on my lips. He even manages to slip in the "odd" character from his home town.   Paul is a man who cares for his country and the natural environment so there is a message. It is not pushed down your throat, a little more subliminal. In short, a book well worth reading ...

TALISMAN : (The Peck Chronicles)

A story of determination, courage and family. James Peck stands alone on a hillside, staring at a massive, three-toed footprint...and the crushed animal within it. He can t help wondering if there is a link between the print and the recent unexplained disappearance of his father. Within hours James meets Mendel, a wizard from another world - Denthan - who is trapped in a body that is not his own.

CITADEL : (The Peck Chronicles)

Book 2 in The Peck Chronicles. First book is Talisman. Third book is Tyrant. The Hedra wizard Dendralon sees the impending destruction of Denthan as an opportunity to increase his power. James Peck is intent on stopping him. He needs to journey to the Eden Tree, deep in the Forest of Eldane.

TYRANT : (The Peck Chronicles)

Book 3 in The Peck Chronicles. Is preceded by Talisman and Citadel. The odds are stacked heavily against James Peck and the wizard-goldfish Mendel. One year on from their extraordinary Denthan adventure, the zany villagers of Drumfintley find themselves the last line of defence against an invasion of Earth
