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.
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 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.
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.
