9780060956851: Stonehenge

Bestselling author Bernard Cornwell takes us back four thousand years, to a vibrant world of ritual and sacrifice that is at once timeless and wholly original. This historical novel unlocks the mystery of Britain's most haunting and puzzling structure, and tells a tale of three brothers—fierce rivals—who are uneasily united in their quest to create a temple to their gods. Lengar, the eldest brother, kills his own father to become chief of his tribe. Camaban, the illegitimate middle brother, is determined to have a massive temple built in his own honor. And Saban, the youngest, who actually builds Stonehenge, must act as mediator between the other two. Stonehenge is the enthrallingly dramatic story of patricide, betrayal, and murder; of bloody brotherly rivalry; and of the never-ending quest for power, wealth, and spiritual fulfillment.

About the Author:

BERNARD CORNWELL is the author of the acclaimed New York Times bestselling Saxon Tales series, which includes The Last Kingdom, The Pale Horseman, Lords of the North, Sword Song, The Burning Land, Death of Kings, The Pagan Lord, and, most recently, The Empty Throne and Warriors of the Storm, and which serves as the basis for the hit television series The Last Kingdom. He lives with his wife on Cape Cod and in Charleston, South Carolina.

From AudioFile:

Three brothers, Lengar, warrior-chief; Camaban, crippled sorcerer; and Saban, peace-loving artisan, are the mighty pillars around which this epic novel is constructed. Bernard Cornwell transports the reader back to a time four thousand years ago, as he creates a landscape, a civilization, a reason, and the method to explain Stonehenge, the sun's great stone temple, and how it was made. Sean Barrett reads quickly, but such is the delicate enunciation of his words that there is never a sense of hurry. Barrett paints portraits with his voice, showing in sound the intelligence and nobility of Saban, the growing madness of Camaban, and the lascivious brutality of Lengar, and the distinctive qualities of numerous other characters. There are few things as satisfying as a good epic novel. STONEHENGE is such a book. It is gratifying that it is being released in both print and audio formats simultaneously.
