Booklist Review: "Here come Holdstock's Ryhope Wood and its resident mythagos again. This time, Christian Huxley, elder son of George Huxley of Mythago Wood (1991), enters the woods to find the secret behind his mother's suicide and his father's madness. He encounters a Celtic warrior-maiden, Guiwenneth, and then a horde of mythagos known as Kylhuk's Legion, who are on the march to overcome various foes and find and release Mabon from his imprisonment at the gates of the world of the dead. The ensuing yarn is a crazy quilt of splendid scenes, yet more splendid language, considerable wit, and superior characterization, all colored by Celtomania and parlor-Jungian concepts. You may almost wish Holdstock would abandon his pursuit of the Celticized collective unconsciousness, but if he did, would he rise to the heights he has achieved in every book, however unevenly? Maybe this is for Mythago Cycle fans only, but for them it will be richly rewarding. --Roland Green"
