Publisher's Summary

"My fate may be a pool or a puddle, a sea or a soup, a rain-cloud or a river, a lake or a long bath. I am water. If you let me, I will carry you everywhere."

When Danny Canterbury begins his fourth year at St. Oliver Plunket’s all he wants is for fellow student Janna Chisely to notice him. But when sinister episodes shake the school, Danny finds himself at the center of a destructive plot. Can the enigmatic Chardelia Foss help him rescue the truth before it becomes too late?

Chardelia Foss and the River of Fear is a startling debut that marks the pain of first love within the often dark skies of school.

A Book of Two Halves.

We are introduced to a cast of wonderful characters, students and teachers, in this novel set in the 4th year of a school. Our central character is discovering the politics and nuances of young love. The dialogue is very authentic and we empathise with the players. The writing style is ambitious with multiple references, allusions and threads, not always working but not detracting from the central thrust of the novel. Midway through a coming of age story it changes to a thriller with plot twists and turns leading to quite an adventure and exciting conclusion leaving the listener desiring more. The narration is excellent and adds to the enjoyment. The book would have benefitted from a little tighter editing but I'm being a little picky. Thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook, looking forward to the next in the series.
