About the Author
Nicola Rhodes often can’t remember where she lives so she lives inside her own head most of the time, where even if you do get lost, it’s still okay.
She has met many interesting people inside her own head and eventually decided to introduce them to the rest of the world, in the hopes that they would stop bothering her and let her sleep.
She has been doing this for ten years now but they still won’t leave her alone.
She wrote this book for fun and does not care if you take away a moral lesson from it or not.
You have her full permission to read whatever you wish into this work of fiction. As she says herself:
“Just because I wrote this book, doesn’t mean I know anything about it.”

Another triumph in the Black Chronicles. Long Time Dead has everything anybody could ask for. Magic, derring-do, time travel, unrequited love, all wrapped up in Nicola Rhodes unique blend of disparate traditional mythologies woven seamlessly & wittily together, with her own fictional additions, creating at the end, an artifact of storytelling in style which is entirely her own.
I was gripped by the story from the very beginning. Then taken on a roller-coaster ride through curiosity, adventure, adversity, set-backs & reversals of fate, to a most satisfying conclusion. Eminently readable, the pacing was well judged, the characetrs sympathetic & believable. The wit of the prose containing an almost mordant humour at times. But maintaining a delicately judged light tone despite some very dark themes, without trivialising those themes.
Nicola Rhodes narrative powers continue to go from strength to strength. I have read all of her work & of the dozen novels she's published this is my favourite.
It is by far the best new work I have read this year, & have no reservations about recommending it unreservedly.
