Belletristik / Spannung
The sedentary and impractical Hoyle meets Sybil Alvaro in a used bookstore, and she invites him to follow in the footsteps of her favourite author in a search for the mysterious Bloodwood Staff. He's spent his entire life reading vintage adventure action, and thinks he knows how these things should go.In the mountains west of Sydney, his expectations are almost immediately derailed, as nobody - not Sybil, and certainly not the irrepressible Ada Drake, stand-in for the obligatory plucky urchin - behaves the way they're supposed to.As they gradually realise that their lighthearted adventure has put themselves and their loved ones in dire peril, Hoyle is forced to face the fact that he is woefully unsuited to be the stereotypical hero.A deliberate subversion of adventure, fantasy and satire tropes, After the Bloodwood Staff is a brilliant and unexpected ride.
