Book Two of THE WOOD
Meet Cate Ravenscroft, new Professor of Botany at the local college. The fiery Scot takes no crap from anyone, whether it’s a colleague, a brother, or a pompous deputy. Her talents and experience give her a special insight into the goings on in Tyndale, but she remains in the dark as to what is happening and why. The crows have taken a liking to Cate and are there to protect her from those who wish her harm.
Naturally, she catches the attention of the King and Brother James. One wants to kill her, the other wants to wed her.
The green continues to expand and no one knows why.
The army arrives to do what armies do and faces an enemy with weapons no soldier can resist. And another person with great power awakens from a long sleep.
All these forces are heading for a showdown that will determine who lives and dies and, most importantly of all, who will rule as the King of the Wood.
Praise for The Consort:
“’J. Edwin Buja’s THE CONSORT is exactly the sort of novel for which those of us who miss the glory days of the best classic 80s folk horror most pine. With modern tonal echoes of Thomas Tryon’s Harvest Home and Owen Brookes’ The Widow of Ratchets, and written in spare, swift-moving pellucid prose, The Consort is the ideal novel in which to lose oneself over the course of a rainy weekend of cozy reading—which is exactly what I did, and I’m richer for having done so.””
