Bernard Cornwell’s imagination runs wild in Stonehenge as we follow three brothers on a journey that sees their rivalry for one another warp into the creation of one of the most magical landmarks in the world: Stonehenge. Set forty centuries ago, noted historical author Bernard Cornwell has written yet another gripping story about adventure and adrenaline, centred on one of the world’s most mysterious landmarks. This imaginative reconstruction of how Stonehenge was conceived takes us into a tale that sees an entire family ripped apart.
We soon learn that the three brothers are far from close, as Saban and Camaban struggle to avoid being murdered by their half brother Lengar, who is a vicious man with a thirst for blood. In Stonehenge, we soon come to fear Lengar for his callous murdering ways as he kills his own father and launches a brutal attack on his tribesfolk.
Before his death at his son’s hands, the brother’s father had invested some gold into a monument that is referred to as The Old Temple. The brothers inherit the temple and continue their bitter fighting, this time for control of the temple but who will survive?
