Book Review: Drinking Midnight Wine

Drinking Midnight Wine by Simon R. Green
A stand alone novel from the author of the ‘Deathstalker’, ‘Secret Histories’ and ‘Ghost Finders’ sagas. Toby Dexter is a nobody in the very old town of Bradford-on-Avon. He has a crush on a mysterious woman and when he finally works up the nerve to talk to her, he is plunged into a world of wonder and nightmare. There is far more to Bradford-on-Avon than Toby ever realised and the mysterious selfish Gayle is far more than Toby ever suspected. This is a delightful and very enjoyable fantasy tale.

Best Lines:
“If you could find your way to that abandoned room, and put your ear to that locked door, you would hear the sound of something crying.”

“A town with far too much past for its own good.”

“She wasn’t frightened of me. Unusual that.”

“I don’t sleep because something is waiting for me in my sleep.”

“No one in the city of Bath now remembers why the old spa baths were originally built, but I do. It’s still down there somewhere, sleeping.”
