Giants Dance: Rhyme and Reason… now Book of the Month at Strange Book Reviews

It is always a lovely surprise to find a review of a book.

Even better when it is a positive review…

Book of the Month and reviewed at Strange Book Reviews

It started with a Kite moved through conversations with Llamas and continues with some realizations. These books are magical adventures – almost a modern-day spiritual Famous Five except in this case it’s The Adventures of Wen and Don out to play….in the mystical land of Albion unlocking magical secrets and reading the land….. Fascinating gems of books and well worth reading! I just bought the next!

From Giants Dance: Rhyme and Reason

Book Three of The Triad of Albion

“…Such a small thing, sitting as if asleep against the stone as the dawn broke. Yet it was no sleep but a birthing.

He had called them and they had come, up from the valley, through the avenue of stones… to the circle. Their drums quiet, their voices hushed, their feet light on the faded heather…

He had stood guard all night… I had felt him there… the last thing I had known. He stood there still, shoulders fallen… head bowed… until they came. It was he who carried me to the place of preparation…

I could no longer feel his tears as they fell upon my face… no longer reach out in comfort to him…

There was a memory of the ache of separation… a severing of the cords of life… What of me was human still yearned to offer comfort… what of me was beyond knew it was not needed… it was a birthing. He laid me in the circled place and the drums began…

They brought me treasures… one by one… a hawk’s feather… a flower… a stone. The fires were lit. The great cauldron was filled and boiling. It was for him to make the first cut…

He could not.

He cut my hair instead… taking a long lock of silver and lifting it to his lips. He left then… he could not stay…”

It began with a walk over the bracken covered hillsides of Derbyshire to a lonely stone circle, almost forgotten. It was just a walk…until the hawk flew from the tree and once again the visions began.

Plunged into a realm beyond reality, further than history, deeper than time, Don and Wen begin to unravel the hidden messages hidden in plain sight, concealed by habit and acceptance, and extraordinary magic framed within the small things of ordinary life.

Follow a journey across the Heart of Albion and become an Initiate of the mysterious verity of verse.

  2. This extract is most interesting, Sue. I have Mister Fox: The Legend on my “real” books pile.

    Fantastic review and congrats Sue. I’d never heard of Strange Book Reviews. ❤


  8. I haven’t heard about Strange Books Reviews, but there is so much to learn as we go along. I loved the review and I also am looking forward to reading all the books when I finish my studies. I do intend to finish my studies as soon as I can get back to them. I do have the book, “Crucible of the Sun” that I bought before I knew that there was a specific order to the reading, but I will hold on to it so I can ultimately catch up. Thank you all so much. It is great to have such good reading to look forward to.
