Beschreibung

Four thousand years ago, a stranger's death and his ominous "gift" of gold precipitates the building of what will become known as one of mankind's most remarkable achievements. Stonehenge catapults us into a powerful and vibrant world of ritual and sacrifice at once timeless and wholly original. This is an epic tale of patricide, betrayal, and murder; of brotherly rivalry; and of the never-ending quest for power, wealth, and spiritual fulfillment.Three brothers, rivals, are uneasily united in their quest to create a temple to their gods. Cornwell's re-creation of civilization as it might have been in 2000 B.C. amplifies the mystery of his subject and makes the world of Stonehenge come alive as never before.

Kritikerstimmen

"An epic story told with a master's skill, presenting powerful personalities, high dramas, and terrific climaxes with color and pace." (Times Literary Supplement)
"A sweeping, dramatic epic....A story of human greed and passion backlit by the construction of [Stonehenge]." (Bookpage)
"[Cornwell] imaginatively unlocks the mystery of Stonehenge's creation....This wild tale, rich with sorcery, pagan ritual, greed, and intrigue, is Cornwell's most ambitious fiction yet....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)
