The Moon of Gomrath
3 journalers for this copy...
This is sequel to Weirdstone of Brisingamen. This copy is old (published 1965 priced at 3/6d and is a bit worn round edges)
Wibba sent this to me along with "The Weirdstone of Brisingamen" - thanks a lot! I've already flattened out the dog's ears and I think I'll manage to make this book ready to travel again - hopefully a long way!
I've nearly finished this book as I've had two weeks of holidays. I kept the last chapter for tonight.
I think it was even a bit better (scarier?) than its first part.
The two children, Colin and Susan happen to meet elves, the lios-alfar, and then Cadellin (similar to "The Lord of the Ring's" Gandalf...) and they help to fight the nasty Morrigan and all her evil creatures. Together with dwarfs and elves Susan (who had left her body for a short time) manages to free her abducted brother - but I haven't read the very end yet!
I quite liked the idea of old, moon magic vs. Cadellin's new magic - and the hint, that it was men and their industry who drove the elves away from us (because of the smoke-sickness)... something to think about!

We caught this book in a tree fern by the blue lake in the enchanted forest Groombridge Place. We loved it very scarey. It will now be released somewhere far from here where it is cold and misty.
