"To me, the best part of the story is the joy and excitement which Gray writes it. You can tell it's a subject she is particularly interested in, and that love of the topic really makes the story shine." - J.D. Faulkener, Author, Mirrored Time
"Although Slater is aimed at teens, the pace, content and maturity of the main character make it also a perfect choice for adults too." - Paula Yourell, Author, Against the Light
From the Author
Stone circles have always drawn me to them, but none more than Avebury - Stonehenge's bigger, but less well-known, sister. Long after this book was completed, I continue to celebrate many a summer (and winter) solstice at this incredibly spiritual site. Every year sees at least half a dozen excuses to revisit - usually introducing people who've never been there to the magical experience that is the serpent temple at Avebury.
This story attempts to explain how and why the two henges were built and offers an insight into the people of the period.
