Light in the Gloaming Series
Her debut novel The Gracekeepers , an environmental fairytale set in a lush, futuristic waterscape, won wide acclaim and comparisons to Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter and Emily St John Mandel. In her more diluted follow-up, Logan draws on the same themes — myth, loneliness, desire, grief and ritual — but focuses on a single, unnamed Scottish island in the here and now. Sometimes they get it right but sometimes — far more often — they get it wrong. But grief turns out to be a hard act to follow, in fiction as in life.
