Book Summary

Slater is the son of Mason, but he will never be a chip off the old block.
Although his father is responsible for Aveburgh henge, Slater is more interested in learning about the ceremonies held amongst the stones.
Torn from a solstice celebration into a real-life nightmare, Slater's talent for reading ley lines upsets dark forces.
Ancient magic pulls him back in time to reveal his connection to primeval secrets. There, he is teased by formidable priestesses who teach him the power of earth energies. Slater’s ability to solve problems under pressure is his strongest weapon against terrifying shamen who want only one thing from him – his death.Only Slater knows the prehistoric temples are not built correctly, but what will happen if he interferes in the past?


"Gray's clearly done her research with the result being a narrative that appeals to the mind as much as it does to our thirst for adventure. A cracking good story, with a cleverly woven plot." - BookViral

"I find the history of stone circles particularly fascinating, and Ms. Gray did a fantastic job of weaving intelligent research with vivid fantasy in a way that kept me reading (and guessing!) long into the night." - S.M.Freedman, Author, The Faithful 

"To me, the best part of the story is the joy and excitement which Gray writes it. You can tell it's a subject she is particularly interested in, and that love of the topic really makes the story shine." - J.D. Faulkener, Author, Mirrored Time 

"Although Slater is aimed at teens, the pace, content and maturity of the main character make it also a perfect choice for adults too." - Paula Yourell, Author, Against the Light

About the Author

Jacky Gray's first career was engineering and after 23 years writing software for telephone exchanges, she spent 10 years teaching children, occasionally introducing them to the joy of mathematics. She still teaches part time when not roaming the country researching or signing books amid Faeries, Witches and Knights in Shining Armour. But her favourite are the Vikings and Pirates. It's a hard life, but someone's gotta do it.

She lives in the English Midlands with her husband and three children, where she enjoys all live entertainment, watches a lot of movies and some great TV shows like Merlin, Robin Hood, Dr Who, and Being Human. She also listens to a lot of Journey and Queen and reads (apologies to the adverb police) voraciously, especially Lee Child, Suzanne Collins, Cornelia Funke, Michelle Paver, Stephen King and J.K. Rowling. But her favourite author will always be the master of history, Bernard Cornwall.
