PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Albion Imperilled Albion Imperilled is a compelling new fantasy fiction concerning four children who stumble upon the threshold to a magical domain - Narnia with a difference! The opening chapters are set in the present day and the children are all now fully-grown and middle-aged. As a fairy-tale for grownups the book may be read on two levels, either as an imaginative fantasy or as a satirical commentary on contemporary Britain with all its social and political tensions, and can be enjoyed equally by adults or older children. Curiously old-fashioned and deliciously politically incorrect, the action shifts between Britain in the 1950s where the children are at boarding school and the year 2000. Their entry to the enchanted forest of Albion is effected by magical portals (mainly trees, which are central to the story) and key threshold sites. This is fantasy fiction at its best a thrilling adventure story with well-rounded characters and plenty of nail-biting suspense involving midnight flights in a winged chariot, abductions and espionage, secret tunnels, and ancient tree magic: Dwelling within the forest itself is an ancient elemental magic, which comes to the fore one night of the year when the trees are able to move of their own accord known as the Festival of the Trees or arboreal awakening and invoke the mighty power of the forest

Much of the existing literature tends to focus exclusively on the sisters, but in undertaking a dramatic reconstruction of their lives Ruth Thomas has succeeded in bringing each family member to life, including their brilliant and volatile brother Branwell, and their scholarly and compassionate father, the Reverend Patrick Bronte. The individual lives of the Brontes are as full of interest and drama as any of the novels they produced, and the family continues to exert a fascination right across the spectrum from dedicated Bronte fans to more casual readers. The novel has been written with an attention to detail and historical veracity, cleverly juxtaposing biographical material and real incidents with vividly imagined episodes, and should appeal to anyone with a love of literature and an interest in the peculiar and tortuous mental processes by which it is shaped.
