About The Knot Garden. The idyllic hamlet of Ashmore lies at the intersection of several dream highways of the mythical wild roads.

About The Knot Garden. For Anna Prescott, retreating from a doomed love affair and a high-pressure career, it offers the perfect escape – pretty cottages, picturesque canal and intriguing inhabitants – Stella Herringe, enigmatic lady of the manor, feisty Alice at the Green Man, and handsome John Dawe.

I knew the garden to which he referred – a labyrinth of low shrubs in an intricate design – for I had glimpsed it as I fell from my precarious perch in the cedar tree, clutching on to the dream. We sat there, Orlando, and we watched. We watched as a woman came out of the house. A tall, thin, old woman. This was less than exciting. I had been waiting for the appearance of a monster; and all he had to offer me was a crone

It is night, but garden candles burn in tall cressets, illuminating apple trees full of cascading roses. Anna began to work energetically, if haphazardly, on her garden. When he could spare the time, Orlando was delighted to help

It is night, but garden candles burn in tall cressets, illuminating apple trees full of cascading roses. When he could spare the time, Orlando was delighted to help. Anna found herself grateful for his support: to her, even weeding was an adventure.

It's a very well-written book, with an intriguing storyline and some brilliant descriptions. I would say it was a fantasy book, but nothing like the epic adventure that was The Wild Road

Ships from and sold by the book community. Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). It's a very well-written book, with an intriguing storyline and some brilliant descriptions. I would say it was a fantasy book, but nothing like the epic adventure that was The Wild Road. This book is more subtle and mysterious, but all the same it has a dramatic and exciting end. One disappointment was that none of the characters seemed particularly likeable.

Thought so. Gone through the knot. He took a pace towards me, saw Millefleur, and stopped dead.

The knot garden, . 3. The Knot Garden, . Thought so.

Book 1 of 2 in the Knot Garden Series. If you liked The Wild Road and The Golden Cat then you may or may not enjoy Gabriel King's third novel. It's a lot darker, but the main difference is that it has some human characters. It doesn't follow on from the fist two stories, although you might recognise one or two characters - I'm not giving anything away though!

The Knot Garden book. Most importantly though, Gabriel King seems to know two ways of conveying information: the subtle hint, which is good but only if followed by less subtle hints, and the info dump.

The Knot Garden book. The result is a book that seems interesting yet slow at first, and then loses all suspense when things are explained. Oh, and there were human antagonists doing terrible things to cats in laboratories, again.

2 5 Author: Gabriel King. Always intriguing' Richard Adams author of Watership Down.

Gabriel King transports us to a magical, secret world of breathtaking suspense. I loved THE KNOT GARDEN. Similar books by other authors.

If you liked The Wild Road and The Golden Cat then you may or may not enjoy Gabriel King's third novel. It's a lot darker, but the main difference is that it has some human characters. It doesn't follow on from the fist two stories, although you might recognise one or two characters - I'm not giving anything away though! It follows Anna Prescott, who has swapped city life for the peace and quiet of the rural village Ashmore, only to discover that this seemingly innocent village isn't what it seems. Meanwhile, her cat Orlando inherits the title (or burden) of Dreamcatcher of Ashmore, and becomes involved in a struggle to save Ashmore's wild roads from evil.
It's a very well-written book, with an intriguing storyline and some brilliant descriptions. I would say it was a fantasy book, but nothing like the epic adventure that was The Wild Road. This book is more subtle and mysterious, but all the same it has a dramatic and exciting end.
One disappointment was that none of the characters seemed particularly likeable. Maybe I'm being unfair because I don't think it quite matched up to The Wild Road, but they mostly seemed selfish and uncaring.
Overall, though, if you're looking for a gripping, exciting book (not the kind of book you can just read on the train!) then I would thoroughly recommend that you give this a go.

I kept wanting this book to amount to something so it wouldn't be a total waste of time...but I was more than disappointed. Ridiculous premise that just gets worse with explanation and length! I skipped most of the "cat talk" cuz it was beyond ridiculous!!! It's hard to believe the author is not a 20 year old girl!!!

I could go on to shallow, obvious, trite and other adjectives but I'll just start to read something worthwhile instead.
