The first book in the Light Trilogy, Light of the Wicked, follows the fortunes of a curate and his wife looking forward to a quiet life on the Great Ulm above Penrhos Bay, thinly disguised versions of the Great Orme and Llandudno. The quiet town is suddenly beset by kidnapping and murder, perpetrated by supernatural beings. It's a classic battle between good and evil. Other local landmarks are included in the story, the Grand Hotel, the Victorian Pier, Trinity Church and Conwy Castle.

The author will be promoting the book in an unusual way during the launch. The second book, Light of the Holy, includes a scene where a Bishop and a Vicar, two characters in the book, stop outside Waterstones book store in Mostyn Street to see what all the fuss is about when they a crowd gathered on the pavement. A peculiar scene meets them. An author is seated at a desk in the window of Waterstones, penning his second book.

A fun and lighthearted tale of good versus evil
Reader Rating
Posted September 3, 2010, 4:14 PM EST: This was a good, fun read. A classic tale of good versus evil on a grand scale is beautifully told through the story of a small Welsh town. Hurr's unique storytelling style thrives in his descriptions of the town and its inhabitants. His characters are believable and instantly familiar. There are two parallel stories running through the book. While devout angels struggle to protect the townsfolk from their demonic fallen brothers without interfering in human affairs, a few discerning locals fight to make sense of the strange happenings taking place in their quiet seaside home and to defend themselves from forces they cannot see. The main protagonist, a world-weary Detective who craves the truth, is taken on a journey of discovery, which forces him to face the question - is there more to life than meets the eye? The story has a lovely mix of adventure, gentle humor, romance and heroics, while managing to stay lighthearted and always fun.

This review is from: Light of the Wicked (Paperback)

This was a compelling read. Dealing with spiritual forces of good and evil prevalent in a quaint Welsh seaside town and the effects on the local people. Hurr's characters are described with such eloquence that they are easy to identify with. The reader is taken on a journey of discovery into a world of angels and demons through a mix of supernatural adventure, mystery and suspense, complete with humour and romance. This is one of those books that is impossible to put down and leaves you waiting in great anticipation for the second in the trilogy.

This review is from: Light of the Wicked (Paperback)

Set in a beautiful Victorian tourist town on the North Wales Coast, not usually associated to the forces of good and evil. This tale opens with one of it's devilish occupants scheming and manipulating a poor soul who has lost his way, I was immediately drawn into the story with Fred's ability to set the atmosphere with his brilliant description of the surroundings in the opening paragraphs, after which I was totally hooked.
This book is the first of 'The Light Trilogy' and it has certainly left me looking forward to the second part.
Well worth a read!
