      Introduction Figure 1: Ossulstone Hundred. ISLINGTON, whose high street lay at the first milestone from the City of London, was known in the 17th and 18th centuries as a salubrious pleasure resort, and by the last quarter of the 20th century parts of it had recaptured their mid 19th-century reputation for gentility.

      The Angel and Islington High Street Islington High Street is a place of ancient settlement, the consequence of its key position for travellers to and from London.

His influences growing up were the stories of Raymond E. Feist and Robert Jordan, but it wasn't until later, when he read Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series - followed soon after by Patrick Rothfuss' Name of the Wind - that he was finally inspired to sit down and write something of his own/5.
