Description

The Stones of Home is a bardic tale of magic and dragons, of love and pain, of epic battles and loss; and touches the very heart of what it is to be human. After a century and a half of isolation, the surviving Mages of Haven reunite to combat a rising power. Their journey and fight for freedom lead them through many skirmishes and adventures, to confront an old rivalry between their allies, whom they must unite to defeat their common enemy. Rowan Utting's work is poetic, narrative, mythic, reflective and musical. Along with the language, 'Alamard', The Stones of Home contains the author's graphic working notes, embedded songs, music, lexicon and grammar. This stunning advanced literary work was completed when Rowan Utting had just turned sixteen. More books are under way. Not a novel about youth: it explores the lives and emotions of people with magical powers, their place in different societies and the constant war waged by other creatures. The Stones of Home is epic in scope and set in contemporary Scotland and Ireland. It is literary, humorous, poignant, violent, philosophical and memorable. 255pp. A library "must have." Suitability 12+ (contains some violence).show more
