The hour was late, and Megan had the sense she was the only person moving around the castle on this moonless night. She reached the top of the stairs and paused for a moment outside the ornately carved door. She could hear low laughter from inside the room

  • Paula Brackston's "Lamp Black, Wolf Grey" starts out with promise and then dissolves into the mists of the Welsh countryside that stands as a backdrop to this tale of Merlin and the lasting power of storytelling. Brackston, an author popular for her novels revolving around magic and witches, tries to underscore the importance of keeping legends alive while writing an under-whelming plot that fails to be memorable.

    Laura, a modern day artist, moves from London with her husband Dan to the rural Welsh countryside where she intends to indulge in her artwork while fulfilling the couple's dream to conceive a child. Instead she meets up with the reclusive Rhys--a passionate soul who immediately mesmerizes her into infidelity.

    In a parallel story, Megan from the time of King Arthur, meets Merlin the Magician--Brackston's Merlin is of the Pierce Brosnan variety--dark haired and blue-eyed--no long white beards or sorcerer's apprentice robes for him--and falls in love awhile acting as a nanny of the lord of the manor's two children. Politics abound and sadly, roadblocks are put in the way of Megan and Merlin's love.

    Brackston pulls the reader into the story initially but fails to develop any of her characters--all are stereotypical at best. Where she succeeds is creating the Welsh landscape--a place of dreamy unreality where magical things can happen. Brackston wields her magic, but this, too, is ineffective; the story flails.plunging into trope as both Megan and Laura's hearts move in directions that lead then to their eventual and very predictable fates.

    Appearing in both story lines is Merlin--Brackston's portrait seems off as one would think the clever magician would employ more wily devices to charm and control his hosts and enemies. Instead, Brackston depicts the wizard as a man with a not-so-clever tongue, defying the local nobility in alliances that do not make much sense and are never fully explained.

    Laura in particular seems a babe in the woods--her ability to step into dangerously foolish situations is part of her characterization, but Brackston's unraveling of the mysteries in her plot line render her unsatisfying at the very least. On the other hand, Megan is a fairy tale heroine who gives her all with maidenly virtue even in the darkest moments. This too is not fulfilling in terms of the story.

    The story ends with an lengthy epilogue that summarizes the characters outcomes. There is little emotion or reaction, just relief when the last page is finally reached.

    Bottom line? I recommend Lamp Black, Wolf Grey only for its atmosphere. The story line while initially compelling fades into stereotypes and contrivances that quickly become boring and disappointing especially for those who want to see Merlin in a more faceted light.

  • A tryst between two worlds is shared
    With passion, love and lust.
    A nod to Poe and Hawthorne too
    Will make these comments just.

    Ms. Laura and Ms. Megan meet
    A man they can’t deny.
    Their very souls are stressed withal
    To meet each tempered try.

    If witchcraft old and new you seek
    This tale will meet your need.
    Its magic most will never see,
    But those who know will heed.

  • It was sad indeed to read almost the same dialog here as in another of Paula Brackston's books. Another long house on another mountain, repeated dialog through out. Some differences were just not enough to make me truly enjoy this one, but I paid good money for it so I felt I had to slog through.

  • I loved the book. Twists and turns in the plot makes it hard to put the book down. If you are a fan of Arthurian stories you'll love this, too.

  • I think I have read all of Paula Brackstons witch books. This one was not her best.

  • I really wanted and expected to like this book. It's easy to read, but it shouldn't be so easy to see every plot twist coming from miles away. I think the author should work a bit harder to deserve all the admiration her fans give her.

  • I read this book in 3 nights! I couldn't put it down! Very well-written and well developed story line, definitely recommend!

  • Like Paula Jackson's books - her people are entertaining.
