Stonehenge, 2000 B.C.: a novel
From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, the tale of three brothers and of their rivalry that created the mysterious Stonehenge.
One summer's day, a dying stranger carrying great wealth in gold comes to the settlement of Ratharryn.
The three sons of Ratharryn's chief each perceive the great gift in a different way. The eldest, Lengar, the warrior, harnesses his murderous ambition to be a ruler and take great power for his tribe. Camaban becomes a great visionary and feared wise man, and it is his vision that will force the youngest brother, Saban, to create the great temple on the green hill where the gods will appear on earth. Saban' s love for Aurenna, the sun bride whose destiny is to die for the gods, finally brings the rivalries of the brothers to a head. But it is also his skills that will build the vast temple, a place for the gods, certainly, but also a place that will confirm for ever the supreme power of the tribe that built it.

Four thousand years ago, a stranger's ominous gift and his death at the Old Temple of Ratharryn would precipitate the building of one of mankind's most remarkable achievements. Cornwell's epic novel, Stonehenge, catapults us into a powerful world of ritual, betrayal, and the never-ending pursuit of power, wealth, and spiritual fulfillment.
Three brothers, deadly rivals, are precariously united by a shared vision to create a temple to their gods. Lengar, the eldest, is a ruthless warrior intent on replacing his father as chief of the tribe. Camaban, his bastard brother, is a sorcerer whose religious fervor inspires the plan for Stonehenge. Caught between the zealousness of his ambitious brothers, it is the youngest, the peaceful Saban, who will become the true leader of his people and live to see the temple built in the name of salvation and regeneration.
