Combining myth, magic and legend this Arthurian fantasy historical fiction looks at the 15th Century as perhaps it should have been
The Language of Stones by Robert Carter
The Realm is sliding towards catastrophic civil war. But an ancient prophecy tells of Arthur's return, and hints at an alternative course of history.
As factions clash for the throne, the standing stones that once preserved the fragile balance of peace are instead inciting men to battle. An ageing wizard and his young apprentice must unearth the stones to prevent a senseless war. But there are many enemies ranged against them, not least a powerful sorcerer determined to gain mastery of the Realm's fate for himself.
Drawing on the historical events of the Wars of the Roses, ancient British legends and the landscape itself, Robert Carter's novel is a powerful work of mythic fiction.
