Oric and The Lockton Castle Mystery by Lesley Wilson

515ROpXFDDL

Lockton Castle, a four day ride from Bayersby Manor, is in the grip of an epidemic. Concerned that the disease will spread if left unattended, Sir Edred sends young Apothecary Oric to administer to the sick.

Upon his arrival at the castle, Oric fears that something far more sinister than an epidemic is afoot. Determined to explore the castle, he waits until everyone retires to bed. The secret he unearths sends him racing back to Bayersby Manor before the inmates of Lockton Castle arise.

Mother Olive, soothsayer and troublemaker, chooses market day in the village of Kilterton to deliver a terrifying prophecy. Furious over the raucous disturbance the old woman causes, Sir Edred, Lord of Bayersby, instructs a notoriously zealous priest to nip Mother Olive’s dire warning in the bud. Father Chrispian delivers fire and brimstone sermons from his pulpit in St Griswald’s Church; does he pacify the country folk or make the already volatile situation worse.

Aided by his mentor, Ichtheus, his friend, Dian, and Parzifal, the faithful wolfhound, Oric battles to save all that he holds most dear.

How lovely to meet my ‘friends’ again in the 2nd part of the Oric trilogy. Brave Oric, his mentor Ichtheus, his secret love Dian and let’s not forget his faithful hound Parzifal. Of course, there are also the required villains, some of which we have already learned to dislike and if we would have watched them in a play, most certainly ‘booed’ them at every appearance. Actually the Oric trilogy would make an excellent play or movie. Kids of all ages and most importantly the young at heart would love it. I am just glad it’s a trilogy and I cannot wait to find out how it will continue. It is easy for me to recommend you read both books of the Oric trilogy published so far. You will not want to put it down. Lesley Wilson is an excellent story teller. These books deserve a place up there next to Harry Potter and Eoin Colfer’s, Artemis Fowl

Lesley Wilson was born in North Yorkshire, UK and educated at St Martin’s preparatory School Grimsby, Lincolnshire, Mill Hill School, Middlesbrough, and Pickering’s Commercial College, Middlesbrough, Yorkshire. She completed a course in Journalism with the London School of Writing, and has been an active member of a writers’ group in Australia.

In 1957, she met a young man on holiday in Italy. A whirlwind courtship followed before he joined the British Army. Fifteen months and hundreds of letters later, Lesley, aged seventeen, boarded a troop ship bound for Singapore, where she married the love of her life. She worked as a fashion model in Singapore for two years before returning to the UK. A three year posting to Germany with her husband followed.

Returned to the UK after her husband left the army, Lesly worked as Girl Friday for a well-known racing driver/motor dealer. She underwent training in London at Helena Rubinstein’s London Salon, and worked thereafter as a consultant for five years. Her other careers have included ownership of a sauna and health studio, and market research, which involved many miles of driving throughout N. Yorkshire in all kinds of weather.

In 1982 she migrated to Australia with her husband and small son. She ran a craft shop for several years in which she manufactured all the items for sale. During this time she was also a volunteer in a Maritime Museum. Hunting wrecks off the coast of North Queensland became an absorbing a hobby, and she helped to rescue an ancient, decommissioned lighthouse for the city in which she lives.

Today she is retired and enjoys spending time with her grandchildren. She is also a member of an active quilting group who involve themselves in charitable endeavors from time to time. She reads and reviews books for other authors but writing is her major passion. When she isn’t glued to the computer keyboard she loves to travel, entertain friends, and work in her large garden in N. Queensland.
