I loved the book, even better than some of the other Bernard Cornwell books I've read. Almost as good as The War Lord Chronicles! Which are pretty near as good as it gets! The charcters really came alive as did their faith and their flaws. Truely a wonderfully well written book that any Bernard Cornwell fan would love, but also something that many Pagan readers would enjoy as well.
This is a wild tale, rich with sorcery, pagan ritual, greed and intrigue. This ambitious and intriguing saga will be a hit with lovers of ancient history who want to decipher the mysteries of a vanishing world. Cornwell unlocks the mystery of Stonehenge's creation in 2000 B.C. A Must read.
Bernard Cornwell is the master storyteller. He weaves a tale that totally draws you in and keeps you there. This book is a great story of brothers whose deadly rivalries and glorious ambitions will forever mark the world.
this is a great historical fiction read. you can actually feel the difficulty in the moving of the stones. it is so well written. i'd read it again but my TBR pile is just too big LOL
An enjoyable read about a possible history of the standing stones of Stonehenge.
I always enjoy this author's character depictions and historical plot lines. This one is about the building of Stonehenge
Is this how Stonehenge came to be? An epic story told with Cornwell's impressive skill
Historical novel set at the time of Stonehenge's construction.
Interesting storyline, well formed characters, imaginative. Good weekend read.
this is the authors novel approach to the events leading to the building of Stonehenge. It takes you into the everyday lives of the possible builders, their customs and the reason for building the monument
I love Cornwell, but this but just never came together, the plotlines were so superficial...
One of the few books I haven't finished. I found the story dull, wordy and uninspired. Even for someone who reads anything about Stonehenge & Druids, this was an impossible read.
Good read, interesting take by Cornwell on this period in history.
This was not as good as some of the other Bernard Cornwell books I have read. However, it was still a good book. I found I was not able to identify with the characters very well because of the setting in such a dark and uncivilized time. Cornwell's ideas about the origin of Stonehenge is interesting though. The book is worth reading, but not a must read.
Interesting theory but it's got too much violence for most women, maybe a man's choice.
