Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Bernard Cornwell received national acclaim for the historical drama of his Civil War series, the Starbuck Chronicles, which includes Rebel, Copperhead, and Battle Flag. Now, in Stonehenge, he creates a dramatic saga of one of greatest wonders of the ancient world.

Four thousand years ago, three brothers grow up in a land that is now Britain. One becomes a warrior, ruthless in his pursuit of gold and power. One is a mystic who sees visions of the future and hears the gods speak to him. Between them stands Sagan, the gentle brother who will dedicate his life to building a temple he hopes will bring health and peace to the land. As the giant stones are moved into their sacred pattern, Bernard Cornwell draws the listener into the conflicts of brother against brother, men against gods. Narrator George Guidall’s performance brings forth a world filled with the sights and sounds of bronze-age life.

A Total Diappointment.

Any additional comments?

Save yourself the credit and the time. Not what I would expect from Bernard Cornwell. It is poorly written with an amateurish storyline. George Guidall, whom I normally really enjoy, fell short on accents and women's voices.

Slow character development and unsatisfactory endi

I finished this one just because I have enjoyed his other books and devoroued the different series one after another. I struggled to have any feelings for any of the characters. I just kept hoping it would either get better or end, it ended before getting better.
