Great book, and liked it.

This supernatural tale unfolds in the town of Aberystwyth as graduate student Harry Chesterton searches for the elusive Otto Blightley in his quest to substantiate his thesis research. He gets much more than he bargained for!
This novella is compelling and fast-paced with unexpected twists and turns as Prior takes us beneath the seemingly harmless facade of Aberystwyth to reveal that not everything is as it seems. Prior's voice and tone is at once engaging, suspenseful and exciting. Although the somewhat liberal use of Welsh slang and academic-speak can sometimes leave the reader reaching for the dictionary, the writing is breathless, animated and fresh. As the story unfolds, it engages the reader very quickly. A very easy read and well-written, it is perhaps a bit too short. At times I craved more detail and explanation. Yet, despite the minimal character development, the story works extraordinarily well. Still, this tale could easily be fleshed out to a 200-300 paged novel. I would love to see what further magic Prior could work with that much additional space devoted to this story!
