Heat of the Hunt

The animated prose of Heat of the Hunt grabs you from the first chapter taking you into a world of contemporary adventures and the folklore of Dartmoor.

Adrian has a prophetic dream and travels to Dartmoor to free a trapped spirit, convincing his friend Gemma to go with him. Gemma is not keen on anything supernatural and “resolved to avoid any portals to the world of the dead. The world of the living was tricky enough”. Unfortunately for Gemma following a hellhound attacking the local pub and walkers vanishing from the moors, Adrian also goes missing and the master of the Wild Hunt, who is having his own problems with his sister exacting her revenge for past hurts, appears to be strangely fascinated by her.

This walk into the darker side of Dartmoor is the result of over ten years of research into British folklore by the author and does inspire the reader to look up the various mythologies the tale is based on.

With well-developed characters, intricate plot and its easy to read and entertaining storytelling, Heat of the Hunt is recommended to anyone who likes a good read in the contemporary fantasy/horror genre.
