Adventures in Sacred Chromatography
The Initiate is the first book in the Triad of Albion series, an adventure in the landscape of the sacred heart of England… Albion… a place where giants dance in stone, where trees whisper secrets and ancient sites are layered deep in the earth.
“We are… without question…going to get locked up!”
A trip to the ancient White Horse at Uffington, carved into the chalk in millennia past; a track, five thousand years old, that through the mists to a magic of Wayland’s Smithy and the gnarled stones of the circle at Rollright… overhead the hawks wheel… it is just supposed to be a day out in the landscape for Don and Wen.
But a chance visit to a medieval church leads the friends to the discovery of a strange phenomenon; a rainbow of coloured light that defies explanation….
Their adventures lead them down the straight paths of the leys and the more convoluted ways of myth, legend and symbolism, as they explore the strange coincidences that will lead them to the Feathered Seer and the Ninth Knight….
…and to the Riddle of the Initiate…. Can you solve it?
“Those stones at Wayland’s would be covered with earth.”
“So no one could see them.”
“I know, but it isn’t so very different from decorating the inside of a tomb with intricate and resplendent illuminations and hieroglyphs.”
“Like the Egyptians.”
“Like the Egyptians… and others. Some of the best art their cultures ever produced would be seen by none.”
“And what about the Hill Figure.”
“What about the Hill figure, dear?”
“It’s only properly visible in its entirety from the air?”
“So no one could see that either.”
Wen sighs, “We have to entertain… the very real possibility… that these people… were not, oh how should I put it…they were not… as body bound… as we are.”
“And the stones in the earth… ”
“…are exactly the same thing.”
“Jeez…That’s a seriously crazy thought… which is probably why I like it so much.”
“…I like to classify and label things up neatly. Those analogies that I can think of would be books like `The Zelator’ and perhaps even `The Da Vinci Code’, but it is a stretch. `The Initiate’ defies being boxed, labelled or classified and probably rightly so, as it is a work of brilliance.” Dr G.M.Vasey, Author of ‘The Last Observer’ and ‘Inner Journeys’
“Layers of mystic delight.” R. Amber
“Although a very mature, serious and in many ways learned study and in no way to imply a simplistic form, there is also about it the originality, freshness, zest and sheer joie de vivre of some of the much beloved adventure stories of my childhood – an irresistible and all too rare combination.” B.Terrier
