    Description

    Artist Laura Matthews finds her new home in the Welsh mountains to be a place so charged with tales and legends 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 hopes that the wild beauty will inspire her to produce her best art and will give her the baby they have longed for. But this high valley is also home to others, such as Rhys, the charismatic loner who pursues Laura with fervor. And Anwen, the wise old woman from the neighboring 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 renowned career as a magician, but when he refused to help Lord Geraint, it was Megan who may pay the price. From New York Times best-selling author Paula Brackston, Lamp Black, Wolf Grey is an enchanting tale of love and magic featuring her signature blend of gorgeous writing, an intriguing historical backdrop, and a relatable heroine that listeners are sure to fall in love with.

    Classic Paula Brackston

    This book has everything fans of Paula Brackston expect from one of her novels, including a brilliantly described natural landscape that at times becomes a character itself. Very similar to "The Silver Witch," "Lamp Black, Wolf Grey" explores themes of creativity and independence, and the heroine's artistic endeavors (in this case, painting) bring her closer to the supernatural realm—a great metaphor for the unconscious and creative part of the psyche. This book is a little too similar to "Silver Witch," though, and I think that book told the story better. Still, a good read, and suspenseful.

    Just plain silly

    Infidelity "romance," shallow plot, ridiculous ending. No. Just plain NO. Can't think of a single positive thing to say.

    Mediocre

    What would have made Lamp Black, Wolf Grey better?

    The whole plot line wasn't very interesting to me. It was designed for a specific person. I simply couldn't relate to the character and found her dull.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Paula Brackston again?

    No

    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator captured the tone of the book, which was methodical and uninspired.

    Entertaining enough but.....

    Not the best of this author's books. Seems as if the pressure to release another title forced this book before its time or maybe the author just got bored with the story midway through.

    Terrible Plot

    The book starts out incredibly slowly. Then it is just another book that panders sex as romance with some light bondage. It was not romantic. I only got halfway through before I just couldn't take any more of this drivel.

    Pretty good but not her best

    It felt like the author was leaning heavily on storytelling constructs she has already used , specifically in the silver witch book. ... Two stories interwoven between distant times with parallel heroines ... The artist running away to the wilderness to create and finding a connection to characters there ...

    This was my least favorite of her books, although I always enjoy her writing and storytelling ... There was a lot of telling instead of showing ... Especially the epilogue was just over the top with the narrator overly painting for us Laura's psychological profile ....

    That was an issue that ran throughout the book - heavy handed peering into the psyche of the characters ... There were also some leaps of logic (like how she decided that Reese must have pushed angus because of a missing blanket...) that just felt awkwardly forced

    Not as much magic as I would have liked, even the way Merlin lets Meghan die and and somehow his magic can't help her - seemed incongruent to his powers we heard about with him saving the horse ...

    Felt like maybe she rushed this book because of contractual or popular demand , and it really needed more flushing out
    In general I always

    New twist to an old legend

    Creative and magical without completely alienating a classic tale. The blending of the two stories are Brackston's normal writing style but these two stories actually have a blending in the present that will leave you wanting more!

    Worst Paula Brackston book

    I have never left a bad review. This book was nearly unbearable and annoying. The main character was unlikable and the sex scene unnecessary and silly. Most characters were underdeveloped and I only finished it because I was hoping it would redeem itself.

    Anti-climatic

    It was an ok story, though a bit cliche, but did provoke emotion. I found it a bit hard to follow at times with the sudden “scene" changes mid-chapter. It also appears that the author was in a rush to finish the story as it just ended it with a whimper. Ms Calin did an outstanding job with the narration. This is not typical of Ms Brackston’s books as I really enjoy her “Found Things” series and am looking forward to the continuation with the 4th book.
