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.

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.
