The Essence of Thyme …

Magical plots abound in The Essence of Thyme. Parsley’s mysterious visitor is not known to Dracomagan. Why did Merlin send Nimue instead of visiting Parsley himself? Who caused the enchanted forest to spring up before Castle Thyme? Why is Lord Thyme’s son, Tym, a sleeping prisoner? How can the friends release him from such tangled spells?

Parsley is on a quest to find her true love. But a tangled forest blocks her way. A promise has been made in the form of a riddle that needs unravelling. She has been chosen so a path will be found, but only a ruby tear will open the way…

An oblique re-telling of Sleeping Beauty. The Essence of Thyme allows Parsley the limelight (for once) as she pursues her dream of finding a handsome prince and true love. But messages from Merlin come in the form of riddles. Just who is this mysterious Nimue? Why has an enchanted forest suddenly appeared before Castle Thyme? Can Parsley and Dracomagan solve the riddle and break the spell before it’s too late?

It was good to be back in the world of Dracomagan. This was a short story with the same characters as Dragsonscale Leggings and I enjoyed it a lot. I love Dracogmagan’s character. She’s great: irreverent, mouthy and full of attitude. I would have liked the story to be longer and I hope there will be more of these short stories set in the same universe. Doctor Wolf

This is such a delightful series to read. Essence of Thyme is quirky, fun, and imaginative, and Dracomagan and Parsley are a duo to be reckoned with, potato peeler and all! Great job! K Johnston

I really enjoyed The Essence of Thyme, the reversed Sleeping Beauty thing worked really well. I also love Dracomagan’s “otherworldliness”. J Poulter

Even the brief exchanges among the characters show fully developed beings with meaningful traits, roles, and tendencies. Their interaction is amusing, natural, and shows shared understanding and affection, referring either to an established relationship or one that has scarcely begun yet feels inevitable. Your story offers an intriguing and unique combination of the familiar and the strange. K Maher

    I’m fascinated by the feminist retellings of these old stories. We’re seeing a resurgence of the older, pre-patriarchal “partnership” mindset.
