Inhaltsangabe

Four thousand years ago, a stranger's death at the Old Temple of Ratharryn, and his ominous "gift" of gold, precipitates the building of what for centuries to come will be known as one of mankind's most singular and remarkable achievements. Bernard Cornwell's epic novel Stonehenge catapults us into a powerful and vibrant world of ritual and sacrifice at once timeless and wholly original, a tale of patricide, betrayal, and murder; of bloody brotherly rivalry; and of the never-ending pursuit of power, wealth, and spiritual fulfillment.

Three brothers, deadly rivals, are uneasily united in their quest to create a temple to their gods. There is Lengar, the eldest, a ruthless warrior intent on replacing his father as chief of the tribe of Ratharryn; Camaban, his bastard brother, a sorcerer whose religious fervor inspires the plan for Stonehenge; and Saban, the youngest, through whose expertise the temple will finally be completed. Divided by blood but united, precariously, by a shared vision, the brothers begin erecting their mighty ring of granite, aligning towering stones to the movement of the heavenly bodies, and raising arches to appease and unite their gods. Caught between the zealousness of his ambitious brothers, Saban becomes the true leader of his people, a peacemaker who will live to see the temple built in the name of salvation and regeneration.

Kritikerstimmen

"A sweeping, dramatic epic...a story of human greed and passion backlit by the construction of [Stonehenge]." (Bookpage)
"Cornwell's portrayal of life and death in ancient Britain is graphic, gritty, and riveting. However, his detailed descriptions of how Stonehenge was constructed utilizing primitive engineering are the real strength of this book." (Publishers Weekly)

    "No comparison to Cornwell's other master pieces"

    I'am a great fan of Conwell and all his other heroes in the 100 year war, Englands early periods, the war of secession and of course Richard Sharpe. This book however is a drag! A very slow story but what makes matters really bad is the terrible speaker! A great disapointment, if you like Cornwell's other books, DON't buy this one!
