Overview

"An entertaining read, perfect for an imaginative reader of any age....it's an epic story" Goodreads.com


"An intriguing mix of medieval swords and mobile phones is accomplished by great wordplay.....truly delightful" Books.gather.com


Flight of the Stone is a fantasy tale full of drama, adventure and humour. A desperate Elliot throws a stone to frighten off his pursuers. His actions ignite an exciting chain of events. Witnessing far more than they bargained for, Elliot's teenage friends Miles and Abbi become drawn into a parallel world laden riddled with the unexpected.


As they gradually unlock the hidden secrets of leylines, the three youngsters learn how to travel vast distances in seconds, are terrorised by Fuddles, held captive by the menacing Larc, while guided by their virtual mentor, Dylan.


In this other world they discover as much about themselves as well as the world around them. So intense is their journey together they become far more emotionally attached than they ever thought likely.


Though these characters are imaginary the places are very real. Much of the story is set around the many historical landmarks in Christchurch, England. A place where the past lives alongside the present and the mythical becomes real. In many ways the story reflects how the division between fantasy and reality is narrowing, particularly through technological advances. Just look at the iPhone, 30 years ago such a device would have been pure fantasy, more Start Trek than reality.


The burning question throughout Flight of the Stone is how much of it really is fantasy?
