From the blurb;
‘London is living through dark times and Magnus Malachis, a magician, is closely guarding his latest moneyspinner; Tersias, a blind boy who can see into the future. But as Tersias’s powers become known, others who seek to use them are drawn from the shadows. Jonah, a teenage highwayman, and his companion in crime Tara; Solomon, a crazed zealot who has bred a new species of giant flesh-eating locusts; and Lord Malpas, a keeper of mysterious powers. ‘They all seek Tersias; but is he a force for good or evil? And can he ever rid himself of the dark spirit that torments his soul?’
Taylor talent for fantasy is strongly reflected in this novel, leaving many readers spellbound by his intricate descriptions and bottomless well of imagination. The characters are well fleshed out and bring forth realism to this novel that, at times, is haunting.
We Give Tersias Three Stars.
