She’s done it again! After an extremely readable and realistic twist on the King Arthur legend in Stone Lord, where she whisked the King and his followers from the Middle Ages back to the Bronze Age, where they probably belong, the sequel has now been produced.

The wicked Morigau has returned, bringing her sons, including the eldest, Mordraed … who Ardhu thinks is his nephew, but is really his son. Mordraed wants one thing, Ardhu’s throne, and will stoop to any skullduggery to get it.

But, although the book does conclude with the fall of Stonehenge and Ardhu, let’s not give too much of the plot away. It helps, although it’s not strictly necessary, to know something of the Arthurian legend, so you can see how cleverly the author has interpreted it. And, although it’s a sequel to Stone Lord, it will stand alone, although I have to admit that, when I’d finished it, I re-read both books, and found things fell into place a little more easily.

With the aid of the maps, I was able to identify more with the settings … but then, I live in the ‘Place of Light’!

  1. NARRATOR: Found in the stone holes, a distinctive type of arrowhead suggests Bluestonehenge may have been built around 3000 B.C.—at the same time Stonehenge was first built—as a ring of 56 bluestones. The two monuments may have been linked from the start.
