Bloomsbury presents Mischief Acts by Zoe Gilbert, read by James Goode, Jilly Bond, Kit Griffiths, Sean Barrett and Sharon Eckman.

Herne – the hunter, mischief-maker, spirit of the forest, leader of the wild hunt – hurtles through the centuries pursued by his creator.

A shape-shifter, Herne dons many guises as he slips and ripples through time – at candlelit Twelfth Night revels, at the spectacular burning of the Crystal Palace, at an acid-laced ’60s party. Wherever he goes, transgression, debauch and enchantment always follow in his wake.

But as the forest is increasingly encroached upon by urban sprawl and gentrification and the world slides into crisis, Herne must find a way to survive – or exact his revenge.

With its intoxicating chameleonic voice and boundless imagination, Mischief Acts is British folklore as you’ve never heard it before: dangerous, sexy, troubling, daring, savage, an exhilarating race through time and space, weaving together the ancient and the contemporary.
