(3.6 stars; 21 reviews)

A classic with a pinch of romance, a pinch of gothic, and a dash of mystery, are you interested yet? When young Alice Maybell’ father dies she is taken in by Squire Fairfield, a widower with two handsome young sons, Charles and Harry. As Alice grows into a lovely young woman she attracts the attentions of more than one admirer, not all welcome. She marries the man she loves whilst fleeing the home she grew up in, but the blissful happiness that follows is short-lived. She finds herself pulled into the middle of the secrets of her husbands family’s past. No one is quite what they seem, and there are many twists along the way. What is this dark secret in her husband’s past? Who - or what - is the malignant presence that haunts Carwell Grange? Join us as we answer these troubling questions in ‘The Wyvern Mystery’ - Summary by fiddlesticks (15 hr 12 min)

(0.5 stars)

This story is just awful. Don’t bother with it. Ugh. Tedious, disjointed, no point, bad characters....don’t bother.

(2 stars)

Rambling interminable text coupled with amateurish readers. Would advise giving this one a wide berth

to long and to wordy

(4 stars)
