    J.P Reedman s debut novel, like Bernard Cornwell s Stonehenge, takes for its principal setting the landscape around the iconic monument on Salisbury Plain It is a landscape with which Reedman clearly has an intimate knowledge her website states that she lives nearby , and this is an intimacy which shines through in the telling of the story It is a story that is also closely informed, as Cornwell s published in 1999 clearly cannot be, by the results of the archaeological researches that have been [...]

    About a month ago, I was fortunate to interview author J.P Reedman about her new debut novel, Stone Lord At the time, I knew very little about the book, other than it was Arthurian legend set in the Bronze Age This unusual concept, combined with her interview and excerpts posted online, were enough to convince me to buy her book Given that I can be a bit of a tough sell when it comes to anything Arthurian, I was happily surprised by how much I liked the book And liked is an understatement Ask an [...]

    A retelling of the Merlin Arthur story, set in the pre Roman period and Tolkien style artfully weaving many known myths and legends associated with Arthur into the story.Now, in theory I like reading historical fiction because i love to feel my way back into a different time and place But there are so few writers who can do this So in practice I like reading historical fiction because I have fun picking out where the anachronism shows through On this latter criteria, this book was really good fu [...]

    Stone Lord is a historical fantasy,retelling the legend of King Arthur,but setting it in the Bronze Age It s a highly original idea,adding a completely fresh twist to the Arthurian mythos.Refreshingly,the characters aren t just 21st century people dressed up in Renfaire costumes their mindset is shown as being consistent with what we know of Bronze Age people they seen spirits and gods surrounding them,every natural feature,megalith and barrow is home to a deity or the ancestors In this setting [...]

    Magical I thought I stood a pretty good chance of enjoying this book because I really love reading Arthurian Legend The Arthurian Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell are my favourite series of books ever, closely followed by the Merlin Trilogy plus two by Mary Stewart I was excited and interested to see how it would work out set in the Bronze Age I have not been disappointed.The familiar story featuring all the usual suspects is beautifully transferred to the period with all the magic and mysticism s [...]

    I started on it yesterday and gave up on it today, 82 pages in It s trying too hard to be clever and tries desperately to be The Mists of Avalon but comes nowhere close Far too descriptive, with one dimensional characters, and too many typos which I gather is being addressed in the second edition Very disappointed.

    This book is an absolute nightmare I made it through 11% before I gave up I read another review where it said if you like Mists of Avalon, read this book for the real thing If that s the case, I think I ll stick to the fake stuff because this was nothing short of awful and a complete chore to sit through.

    It took me longer than usual to read this book because the names of people and places were not easy to read However I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading the next one.
