You will gasp at the plot's ending.
Jackie Lee
In this series, S. P. Hendrick delicately weaves history, folklore, mythology, and fantasy into an intensely rich literary brocade.

I picked up Uneasy Lies the Head at a Festival, and was only going to read the first few pages. I kept reading and reading and reading. I really didn't want to put the book down. I loved the pagan elements of the story. This is really a good read.

"Uneasy Lies The Head" (Volume I of the Glastonbury Chronicles) is a fast paced story of future history. Part romance, part mystery, part fantasy, part mythology, it explores a post Monarchical Britain and a private citizen Stephen Windsor who learns the meaning of Divine Right and Divine Responsibility in a time of national catastrophe. A secret Order of Knighthood which has guarded the Sacred Kings for millennia, past-life remembrances, a liberal dose of Shakespeare, a dollop of Robin Hood and you have a Celtic interlace of a plot which sweeps you along with it.

I can't wait to read the rest of the series!

A dash of History (past, present, and future), a sprinkle of Mystery, Suspense, and Adventure, a dab of Romance, and just a pinch of Religion (Mythology, Paganism, and Christianity) ... mix them all together and you get the recipe for a very entertaining book (and series).

Starting with page one, I couldn't put this book down! As an Anglophile myself (living in the USA), I thoroughly enjoyed all the British history, settings, characters, costumes, plots, and concepts. The author is very well versed in all things British (even though she is an American). I loved being transported through both time and space, accompanying the characters throughout their many adventures and misadventures.

My only complaint is that this book was way too short and left me wanting more ... much more! I can't wait until the next book in the series comes out. I look forward to a long and happy relationship with this new and exciting fantasy series, The Glastonbury Chronicles.

Drat! It ended...way too soon. I tried to read slowly, but it didn't work. It still ended. The best part is this is "Volume I" so maybe it'll be like the encyclopedia; just keeps on going. I haven't found a book like this since "The Once And Future King." I found an immediate kinship with the characters. The author employs a spare use of words to paint the pictures. Where my eyes might wander while reading King, Grisham, Patterson, even Rice; I never found myself glancing down the page for the next action sentence. If anything, I wished the author had been more descriptive of both people and places. Maybe it was just that the stylish writing begged for more of the gripping and fascinating details. I won't even begin to write a plot synopsis, suffice to say it's a page-turner and it takes place in a future Earth-like setting. Parallel universe? Mirror world? Who cares when the plot is sold in a few pages and just takes you along for a slightly anachronistic journey.

In the end we're left to ponder what happened between the elipses that concluded page 213 and the final, single page Chapter 29 on page 215. There we are presented with a cliffhanger scenario that begs, nay pleads for more elaboration.

C'mon author...chain yourself to the computer or quill pen or Remington upright that you use to create this fantasy until more story comes spilling out. And I'll pre-order it.
