'Beautifully written; meaningful; top-drawer storytelling in the tradition of Atwood and Bradbury' League of Extraordinary Authors

‘A masterpiece… Lifeform Three will still be wowing readers in a hundred years’ time’ – Andrea Flory

Misty woods; abandoned towns; secrets in the landscape; a forbidden life by night; the scent of bygone days; a past that lies below the surface; and a door in a dream that seems to hold the answers.

Paftoo is a 'bod'; made to serve. He is a groundsman on the last remaining countryside estate, once known as Harkaway Hall -- now a theme park. Paftoo holds scattered memories of the old days, but they are regularly deleted to keep him productive.

When he starts to have dreams of the Lost Lands' past and his cherished connection with Lifeform Three (the bods' name for horses), Paftoo is propelled into a nightly battle to reclaim his memories, his former companions and his soul.

Includes an appendix of suggested questions for reading groups.
