Summary

Summary

In Dance of the Stones , Chantel, Adam, Holly and Owen are eager to begin the next stage of their adventure. "The Stones have stirred," Ava, Hawkwoman and Wise One, tell Owen, "The time is near for the Circle Dance." The stones are the ancient stone circle of Avebury in England. But the Dark Being approaches, and her servant, a wraith, blocks the children's progress. When Ava is hurt, the children are thrown back on their own resources. They must discover the ritual that will release the circlet. Each child has a part to play in finding the circlet and holding back the Dark Being.


Excerpts

Excerpts

The third sunbeam shot its magical light into a valley. There towered a stone circle, great gray stones veiled in morning mist. The golden beam lit the dew-covered grass. The tide of light flooded and washed each sarcenstone. The Stones were ready. As gray became gold, the largest stone spun on its axis, then stood sentinel as before. The dawn magic happened quickly, without witness. That was to change. Four ordinary children were about to be called to The Circle.
