To an even greater degree than Tea With the Black Dragon, Twisting the Rope is more of a mystery novel with supernatural touches than a true fantasy novel. Yet both books are persistently classed as fantasy - even the man at the bookstore where I got it told me it was a "nice little fantasy."/5(43).

Twisting the Rope is wonderful, as are all her books, and it's a fine sequel to Tea With the Black Dragon.

Don't buy the Kindle version, though, as I did. It was obviously scanned using OCR (it predates computers), and wasn't proofed at all.

There are dozens of typos, some of them unintentionally hilarious/5(39). Twisting the Rope [R. MacAvoy] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers/5(33).

She has also written the Damiano trilogy, the chronicles of a wizard’s young son, set during an alternate history version of the Italian Renaissance; The Book of Kells; and Twisting the Rope, the highly acclaimed sequel to Tea with the Black Dragon.

She is also the author of the Twisting the rope book and much-praised Lens of the World : Open Road Media. Written in the mid 80's this book is a great favorite of mine, an urban fantasy mystery that mixes Celtic and Eastern lore with some solid detection. The scenes with the band seem very true to life and the fantasy elements are delightfully underplayed.

The chapter titles, by the way, as well as the title Twisting the Rope are all titles of trad/5(5). Twisting the Rope – Like the first in the series, TEA, Twisting the Rope is a book that breaks through genres so hard there are no genres left standing in the end.

This one, like the first, has the tiniest bit of fantasy and a lot of music, dressed up in a mystery plot. And like Damiano, it started with a singer and a song. A wild psychic force is loose in the world, while Martha's granddaughter has been kidnapped and one of her Celtic musician friends has been found dead, hanging by a rope of twisted grass.

Now the Black Dragon must use his wits to hunt for the killer even if it brings him to a horrifying realization. Click to read more about Twisting the Rope by R.

Twisting definition, the practice of an insurance agent of tricking the holder of a life insurance policy into letting it lapse so that the insured will replace it with one of a. Twisting the strands in the opposite direction is designed to prevent the rope from unwinding and coming apart.

Moyer, Susan A. Everett.The twist of the strands in a twisted or braided rope serves not only to keep a rope together, but enables the rope to more evenly distribute tension among the individual strands.
