I can't wait to read the rest of the series!
The first volume, Uneasy Lies the Head, introduces Stephen and Kevin, and it becomes quickly apparent that their friendship is not based in the flesh, but it is, rather, a spiritual relationship spanning many lifetimes. Hendrick blurs the lines of...well, everything...to delicious effect: time, space, the mystical and the mundane, gender, and relationships, to name a few. With all else in soft focus, the reader gets such a pure view of the characters and their driving principles that the experience borders on transcendental.
Being unable to put the book down, I reached the end all too soon, and I found myself wanting to shake it upside down like an empty cereal box, hoping a few more morsels would drop out!
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.
