The spiral has existed as long as time has existed. It's there when a girl walks through the forest, the moist green air clinging to her skin. There centuries later in a pleasant greendale, hiding the treacherous waters of Golden Beck that take Anna, who they call a witch. There on the other side of the world as a mad poet watches the waves and knows the horrors the hide, and far into the future as Keir Bowman realises his destiny. Each takes their next step in life. None will ever go back to the same place. And so, their journeys begin...
I'm really excited about it, now that I've read the synopsis. I love books where there are different stories woven together – and I think that Marcus is definitely an author who is clever and brilliant enough to pull this off really well. I'm looking forward to being able to pick up a copy when it comes out on Friday!
