Description

Anna, a writer, draws inspiration for her fictional characters from people around her on the island of Mallorca. She meets Nils, a Danish man living in a cave-house. Their relationship develops, but Nils is a man with a lifetime of secrets. Why is he shadowed by a primeval Norse dragon, which visits Anna in dreams? When Anna's employer falls from his penthouse roof terrace, it sparks a trail of clues, as Anna and her friends Maggie, Jane, and Zhu try to discover what Nils is hiding behind a locked door in the cave-house, and what happened to his former wife?

This is quite a remarkable book. There's a satisfying mystery to solve, an engaging heroine to follow and marvelous lyrical prose. I found myself enchanted by the dreamy otherworldly environment of Mallorca in the summer. Nils is courtly, virile and absolutely terrifying. Anna is drawn to the enigmatic and powerful man; but there's something not quite right. First, there's the locked room behind the bathroom and then there's the fact that Nils, who is very set in his ways, is slowly distancing Anna from her friends on the island. Wilson's familiarity with Mallorca and its residents makes the island come alive in the reader's imagination and there are moments that really resonate. Interspersed throughout is some of the most lovely and lyrical nature writing I've encountered in some time. - Jack Magnus, Readers' Favorite

"There are wonderful, sensual displays of sights, smells and sounds throughout the story. This is one strength of a novel which has the capacity to draw readers in on more than an emotional level, permeating its pages with tactile images and descriptions so juicy one can almost taste its rich atmosphere. Any who want a complex read replete with evolution, change, and Danish folklore and atmosphere will find Here Be Dragons a vivid, engrossing read." - Diane Donovan: senior ebook reviewer, Midwest Book Review
"A tale that defies the boundaries of genre labels. An enjoyable read, and the hint of fantasy within was a fresh take on the mystery genre. Classified by the author as a mystery, this book is also fantasy, drama, and a romance. Complex but never complicated; I recommend Anne Wilson's Here Be Dragons to anyone looking for a good mystery with a unique twist." - Reviewed by Tania Staley for Readers' Favorite
