The second part of Dead of Winter begins with a mysterious old woman, trying desperately to remember something.
I immediately wanted to know who she was, for the warning from the first journey echoes in her confused mind too, but she is unable to remember why.
Emlyn is having disturbing dreams, where a strange man whispers the warning in her ear. When she wakes, it would seem the man had been real, sitting on her bed. She is well used to spirits turning up and doesn’t think this visit strange, but the warning is becoming all too terrifying real.
As this complex story gets under way, there are many questions and mysteries, but the major one for me is, why is Emlyn’s father so disturbed at the mention of winter?
Emlyn has much to keep secret, so is this why her father is planning to send her away with the Deae Matres, the Society of women who travel the world searching out and collecting knowledge?
Looking forward to the next instalment!
