Jadd is young, gay, rich and famous - indeed, has everything, it seems. His life is dominated by drug-fuelled excess, though also by Peter, his illustrious butler, and his devious mother, Catherine. A mysterious antique mirror arrives, and very soon the boundaries between beliefs, dreams and realities begin to blur. As Jadd grapples with his inner daemons, those around him find themselves pitched into a struggle for his very soul.

    "The King of the Stars" I bought this book on recommendation of a friend, and was immediately struck by the richness of the language. At the beginning I thought the story was moving a bit too slowly, but then the all-important mirror crops up in chapter 3 and the urge to read on seems to get stronger and stronger from then on. I was also surprised at how small the fantasy element of the story was, even though in the end it proves to be the most important, as it’s here that all the questions are answered, and a terrible revenge is sought. I’d say it’s not a book you’d read for relaxation. The structure is unusual, the pace measured and the prose dense. It’s a complex book, and some of the ideas are profound. I’m reading it again, and I think you may need to read it more than once to really understand everything that goes on.
