Quicksilver (Lady Tree Trilogy #2)

3.36 of 5 stars 3.36  ·  rating details  ·  25 ratings  ·  4 reviews
Not exactly a sequel, but a novel written in parallel with the superb The Lady Tree, in other words sharing some of the same characters but entirely independent of the first book. Is there such a thing as a werewolf? Quicksilver is no horror story, but in its fabulously vivid recreation of 17th Century England and Holland, it portrays a young man suffering from lycanthropy ...more

Quicksilver is the second in a series of inter-related books set during the Stuart period in England, following on after The Lady Tree. The two books are set at roughly the same time, told from different points of view. In this novel, the main protagonist is the villain of the first book. He suffers from frontal lobe epilepsy after a fall, but since this is the 17th century, he fears he is turning into a werewolf. The book is not easy to read, but rewards your patience with some beautiful passag ...more

A truly great book. An excellent writing style. The story flows easily and you find yourself entranced by the creation of a lute as you are by the invasion of a man by forces unknown. It appears I now need to investigate the books of Ms Dickason a bit deeper!!
When asked what I think the worst book I've ever read is, Quicksilver always tops the list. I think it took me two years to finish this book and only because I refuse to give up on books I start.

I started to write at the age of three, long before I could spell. Understandably, I hid my poems and (very) short stories from my English professor father, who could spell words like ‘desiccate’ and also insisted on correct grammar. All the same, he passed on to me his delight in books and words as well as his joy in pursuing intellectual curiosity. Under his influence, I learned to relish resear ...more
