    I read The Good Hawk by Joseph Elliot a while ago now and it has really stuck with me.

    I read The Good Hawk by Joseph Elliot a while ago now and it has really stuck with me, I’d recommend it for both children and adults that like gripping fantastical adventure.


    Set in mythic Scotland, probably the Isle of Skye, two unlikely heroes must make a dangerous journey to protect their people’. The book is dually narrated by two characters, both members of the Tuath clan but with different roles within the clan structure.


    It is subtly inferred through the language that one of the two narrators, Agatha, has different learning abilities. Agatha is very determined and proud, but at times is treated badly and taunted by others. The author handles the subject matter extremely well and we feel Agatha’s frustration as she strives to support the clan as well as she can.


    Jamie, the other narrator, also grapples with his own insecurities and through both we come to learn that the emotional rollercoaster of growing up is just has hard in their world. When Skye is invaded our heroes embark on a quest to save their clan. Along the way they encounter monsters and discover powers they didn’t know they had.


    The Good Hawk is an absolute must read for every fantasy fiction fan out there.

    Dear Reader: The Comfort and Joy of Books

    £12.99
    Recommended by Nick Barley (Festival Director)

    Having always had her nose buried in a book, Cathy Rentzenbrink is someone whose life beyond that of her imagination ought to be nothing much to write home about. However, as anyone who has read her bestselling memoir The Last Act of Love will know, the tragic death of her brother Matty was an event that profoundly affected her – and continues to do so. What’s more, although it could never quell the pain, chronicling that awful experience also confirmed her as an exceptional memoirist, with the ability to recount stories of her life with style and panache.

    In Dear Reader, Rentzenbrink canters through her whole life to date, punctuating her experiences (including the time around Matty’s accident) with many of the books she read along the way. It’s a wonderfully engaging device, leaving readers with another captivating memoir and a stunningly diverse list of books to turn to in good times or bad.
