Publisher's Summary

Some landscapes hold more magic than others.

Artist Laura Matthews finds her new home in the Welsh mountains to be a place so charged with tales and legends, so teeming with the force of the supernatural, that she is able to reach through the gossamer-fine veil that separates her own world from that of myth and fable. She and her husband, Dan, have given up their city life and moved to Blaencwm, an ancient longhouse high in the hills.

Here she knows that the wild beauty will inspire her to produce her best art. And here she hopes that the powerful nature of the place will give her the baby they have longed for for so many years. But this high valley is home to others, too.

Others such as Rhys, the charismatic loner from the croft who pursues Laura with a fervour bordering on obsession. And Anwen, the wise old woman from the neighbouring farm who seems to know so much but talks in riddles. And then there is Merlin.

Lamp Black, Wolf Grey tells both Laura's story and Merlin's. For once he, too, walked these hills, with his faithful grey wolf at his heel. It was here he fell in love with Megan, nursemaid to the children of the hated local noble, Lord Geraint.

Merlin was young, at the start of his career as a seer and magician, but already his reputation had gone before him. When he refuses to help Lord Geraint, it is Megan who will pay the price.

Not impressed with the ethics of the main characte

Without giving away the story, I had little affection for the main character as I was so disgusted with her ethics. I listened you the end as it had a lot of 5 star reviews but I just got angrier.

Fantastic!

Excellent story line! Captivated from the beginning! I read it all in a day. I wish that Merlin and Megan could be together... one day.

started good but finished badly

plot line didn't flow, the reader was expected to believe Laura could see ghosts which was fine, but then other parts of the story you were expected to discount. Megan and Merlin were excellent characters but Laura, Dan and their friends just came across as spoilt London types.

Another Magical Story!

I'm mesmerised by this narrator who brings these magical stories to life. I cannot put these books down and listen as often as I can. Even locking myself in the bathroom so I'll not be disturbed! !!

I've read two.of her books and can't wait download another. I'll be doing this now!!!

Disappointing

Not one of her best books - weaker story than usual and disappointing ending. Narration was good.
