The Glass Table
Eco-fantasy action is the name of the game in The Glass Table by new author Leigh K Cunningham. As compelling as it is sublime, this affable thriller written for young readers is a disquiet mystery with an important and timely lesson in tolerance. When twelve children disappear while swimming at Lake Como during the summer holidays, the police chief is baffled, unconvinced that a resident witch, displeased with the annual onslaught of polluting holidaymakers, is to blame. She casts a spell, which divides her young captors into either wood spirits or river spirits. The river spirits can escape the spell and return home as children, but only with dire consequences for the wood spirits. A manual sets out the rules they must follow. They learn that it is only through trust, camaraderie, and teamwork do they have a chance to survive, but when a wood spirit named Faith turns into bubbles, all bets are off, even though a greater threat emerges on the banks ofthe river Kai.
