I’ve been discussing my synopsis over at my online writing crit group. It’s made me realise that the ‘evil’ Charles Ancell is using ‘new magic’ to facilitate the building of his money making aluminium plant. As such, he will be perfectly aware of the old magic and of the huldufolk and the þurs people.
Charles Ancell is British and as ordinarilly human as they come – but he has Icelandic heritage – his family were cast out years ago. He knows the secrets, he knows the power, and he knows the possibilities, but he has no loyalties to the land of his forefathers. His only loyalties are to making monetary profit by whatever means.
