For Stonehenge is not yet a ruin but an awesome temple complex, under the control of the priests of the Sun and their Guards- the secrets of bronze and the weapons made from it belong only to the powerful Guild of Smiths.But the murder of his parents sends Shoni fleeing into the wild - a homeless outcast. He is saved by a chance encounter with the people of the Deer. They are a hunting tribe who shun metal. Blythe, the vivid, impulsive son of their leader, adopts Shoni as a brother. He finds shelter and friendship at their hearth, and is accepted as a man of the tribe when he undergoes initiation along with the other youths.But he must also make the pilgrimage to the Circles of the Sun, by way of Lanavon, the centre of the priests of the Sun- this plunges him back into danger, into a web of intrigue and murder, and his enemy is revealed as a man of great power.He has to face false accusation, battle and trial by combat. He also has to face the awesome High Priest of the Sun himself, if he is to get justice for his parents and win back his place in the world of the Five Tribes as an apprentice smith.How he achieves this, and at what cost, with the help of Blythe and the other new young men of the Deer, makes a thrilling tale of treachery, loyalty, death and an unexpected romance.Published by The Electronic Book Companywww.theelectronicebookcompany.com
