This is a book based on stories I heard as a child in the Isles of Scilly, thirty miles of blue Atlantic southwest of Britain's westernmost point. It is not a crime thriller, like many of my other books. In fact you would have to call it a fantasy, suitable for people between the ages of 10 and 110
Sam Llewellyn, Author

Aeons ago, before the dawn of history in a land now sunk, a sword stood plunged in a stone...
Once, Lyonesse was green and pleasant. Now the land is sinking, and the sea batters its walls. Lyonesse has become a place of poison and danger, and its people live in an uneasy truce with the monsters that inhabit its bottomless Wells.
Idris Limpet is an ordinary boy until the day he is rescued from a terrible death and finds himself thrown into an astonishing adventure. Can it be that it is his destiny to save Lyonesse? And can one boy and one girl stand in the way of a colossal evil with its roots sunk deep in ages of wickedness?

Some reviews:
'Quietly superb prose and a memorable, unassuming hero make this Arthurian-flavoured world fresh and beautiful even when it's bitterly ugly... Llewellyn writes with a gentle hand, neither minimizing nor bombarding readers with moral interpretation... A rich and unpretentious gem' Starred Kirkus Review

'Sam Llewellyn is a brilliant writer. This man is destined to be big... This book has magic and adventure and myth and environmentalism and intrigue and shady government affairs and war and strong families and laughter and sorrow AND a strong female character... seek it out' www.kidliterate.com

Amazing for everyone, even if you don't like fantasy!
This book is amazing. It truly excels at being both thought-provoking and terrifically exciting at the same time. I adored this duology when I was in 6th grade (and I'm a girl!) Truly terrific. Even if you don't like fantasy, this is worth a try. (Oh, by the way, I love the author for not milking the series for 10 books. Hate it when authors do that. Although, that means I have less to read . I loved the series so much that I finished the last book, Darksolstice, on the Winter Solstice AND on a lunar eclipse. Two in one! Love it, love it, love it. Commonsensemedia.org
