Geoff Nelder delivers a historical fantasy like you would believe in Xaghra’s Revenge.  He’s done the research, and he’s got the receipts.  More importantly, he has the formula down for a captivating read that transcends time.  Nelder is an articulate and calculated wordsmith, and while entertaining, Xaghra’s Revenge also feels academic, to the point that you’d be hard-pressed to believe Nelder doesn’t have some window to the past available to him.  His characters feel true to life, whether it’s in our time, or a time far in the past. Fact: When pirates raided the Mediterranean island of Gozo in 1551 life changed there for ever. Fiction: those spirits needed revenge and I gave it to them.
