From the Publisher

‘Stay away from me. Don’t you understand? People close to me die.’

Nick believes Alice is overreacting. She’s been unlucky in her life, that’s all. Coincidences – they happen all the time.

It had been coincidence that they’d caught each other’s eyes during the lecture, a trick of the light that had lifted her auburn hair. But is it coincidence that someone, some thing, is distancing him from his friends as the need to possess Alice builds?

Drawn into her obsession with finding the shrine to a Celtic water goddess, and drowning in sensual pleasure, Nick is in denial... until he sees a jewelled sword fade in his hand and knows that he, or the thing that shadows him, has held it, and bloodied it, long ago.

To tell Alice will make her flee. To stay silent could kill her.

Review snippets for the paperback "Torc of Moonlight":

“ starkly elegant prose, builds a powerful novel of possession and psychological breakdown in 'Torc of Moonlight'. She writes the male point of view very well indeed...” 5 stars

“...Acaster's narrative voice is punchy, crisp and authoritative, swinging the reader through a variety of colours and moods. Her descriptions of the world of nature are evocative and sympathetic. Her love scenes aren't half bad either...” 4 stars

“...I could not put this book down and confidently recommend it to all who love well written novels with believable characters, intriguing stories and real settings...” 5 stars
