Anthony St. Clair's rucksack travels from the alleys of Hong Kong to the "soft, green-brown hills of the Twelve Bens" of Ireland in this thrilling novella where he introduces us to Aisling, the Awen of Ireland. The one woman who stands between three powerful ancient relics and two men, one of whom would take them. Will she succumb to heart or to duty? As is his won't and strength, Anthony seamlessly combines quirk, wit, travel, and magic in this tale of power, greed, ego, and love that features ...more

I'm biased, I know, but I really enjoyed reading this novella (and I read it more than once, as a beta reader for the author.) Anthony's got an amazing sense of the epic, and each of the stories in the Rucksack Universe keeps building on the groundwork that came before. There's a lot of long play being worked out through the stories and I just can't wait to see how it all weaves together and falls into place.

I enjoyed this tale of magical relics and their guardians set in Ireland--and the Rucksack Universe. It's an intriguing premise, and I liked Aisling, the Awen of Ireland--and Jake, another guardian, and The Management; and the changing sign was fun. Oh, and maybe the angry mountain. What is its problem?! I'm still a little confused about that, but not as confused as Aisling was about it--and the two travelers. She was attracted to both, though she decided to drive one away... The story slowed do ...more

Two travelers arrive into town together. Aishling first sees and meets them at the local pub. She is instantly intrigued by the travelers and they both get cots at her hostel. Once the travels arrive things star

A bartender named Jake and a hostel owner named Aisling who aren't who they seem on the surface and two travelers that are a bit of a mystery find themselves thrown together in Clifden, a village in Ireland. Weird things from a mountain out of place to accidental fires lead our main characters to suspect our travelers of ill doing. The second book in the Rucksack Universe grabs your attention and doesn't let go. The story fills the need for more after reading The Martini of Destiny while getting ...more

A page turner from the first one. Anthony's characters get more interesting as I continue this journey through the Rucksack Universe. This novella gives us a deeper look into this world of power and intrigue. Where will the travels take us next?

A slightly longer novella than the Martini of Destiny, this story develops the Rucksack Universe a bit more with a wonderful new central character. It's a story that's small in scope but deep in mystery, character and adventure. It's a delight to watch it unfold.
