Overview

Legend of the Celtic Stone (Caledonia Book #1) by Michael Phillips

All of Great Britain is shocked by the unexpected announcement that the queen is abdicating the throne to her son, the Prince of Wales. Then, days before the coronation ceremony, the legendary Stone of Scone, upon which every monarch is crowned, is stolen from Westminster Abbey. Political tensions rise, and while both the IRA and the Scottish nationalists are suspected, no one has the answer to the puzzling crime.

Young Parliament member Andrew Trentham is chagrined by the theft and wary of the winds of nationalism sweeping down from the north. Despite the troubling state of national affairs, the mystery inspires him to learn more about his own roots. But the more he learns about his Scottish ancestry, the more questions he has.

This is a worthwhile read for anyone interested in Scotland, or in religious development of the British Isles. A good mix of modern and ancient, history and fiction. Phillips tells a tale like few others, but this is not for the faint of heart as the historian over-rides the novelist in much of this effort. What a reward for those who are interested in the history of the mystical world of the Celtic people.

This is an excellent book. Don't let the size of it intimidate you. When I finished the book, I was disappointed . . . that I had to wait for the sequel to come out. (It is out now, and it's great too.) The historical information is great, the story is captivating, and it all comes together so well.

I completely agree with the previous reviews. This book is ALIVE, and BRINGS all of Scotland to life for the reader, along with top notch 'historical reporting' AND a page-turning, deeply entertaining story to boot! Scotland's ancient heritage, kings, sacred stones; it's got it all!!

I am about 2% Scotch, but this book filled me with a fervor that is unimaginable. I can hardly wait to learn more about this unique and intresting country. I was unbeliev ably about to cry when the book had to stop and leave me desperate for more. I can hardly wait for Phillips to come out with the sequel! It's a must read!

If you enjoy reading history then you may like this book. I found the book hard to get into. Long monotonous dialogues. I gave up after struggling through 150 pages. Tried skipping ahead to see if it got interesting, but it didn't. Long political speaches . . . ugh. ***esk 08/2017***

this is an excellent book if you truly enjoy historical ficition. It takes a little while for the story to really get going, but once it does it won't let go. I was disappointed when I reached the last page - I wanted to read more!
