This is a fantasy reworking of "Wuthering Heights" which interweaves wizard lore and vendetta with Emily Bronte's beloved classic. "Black Spring" takes the passionate story of Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights" and re-imagines it in a fantasy nineteenth-century society set in savage lands sustained by wizardry, where its people live by the vengeance code of vendetta. Like "Wuthering Heights", it's a story within a story, featuring the brooding young Damek, who is swept along by his emotions. The object of his affections is Lina, daughter of the village lord, whose magical powers make her a witch - and witches are not tolerated in this brutally patriarchal society. When Lina is sent away and forced to become a servant, Damek promises revenge and, like Heathcliff, spends a lifetime securing and refining it. This book has strong crossover potential and will appeal as much to adult fans of sophisticated fantasy and the Brontes as to teen fantasy readers. This is a beautifully written and unique take on "Wuthering Heights" which mixes wizard lore and the Armenian vendetta tradition with the epic romance of the original classic.
