The Paradise War
Full Product Description
'To set foot in Albion is to enter a rich world of fantasy, rooted in Celtic mythology. Simon, a young British student, disappears while investigating a cairn in Scotland and Thomas, an American post-graduate student from Oxford, must rescue him from the Celtic Otherworld, before Simon's actions have a catastrophic effect on the "real" world.
So begins this astonishingly imaginative story sequence from acclaimed fantasy writer, Stephen Lawhead, as he leads you into an epic struggle between light and darkness that is both exciting and very well researched.
In an ancient cairn in the wilds of Scotland, Oxford student Simon Rawson vanishes, seemingly into thin air. Where has he gone? Unsettling signs - a mysterious Green Man, a Celtic circle chalked on the sidewalk - point his roommate, Lewis Gillies, to an impossible answer and an incredible destiny on the other side of a doorway between worlds.
There, where Celtic champions, magic, and treachery weave the beautiful and brutal land called Albion, Lewis finds Simon. And there, schooled as a warrior, he is thrust to the front of a titanic struggle between light and darkness - a hideous, onrushing darkness that would devour not merely a kingdom, but two worlds.
The bestselling author of nine fantasy and science fiction novels for adults: including The Pendragon Cycle and The Dragon King Trilogy now presents the opening book in the Song of Albion saga. Based in Celtic folklore, the story will appeal to adult and teen fantasy readers.
The Paradise War by Stephen R. Lawhead was published by Lion Hudson in July 2013 and is our 21160th best seller. The ISBN for The Paradise War is 9781782640479.

"The imagery, the wonderful flowing prose. The descriptions of the 'Otherworld', the ideas of pride (in the true sense of the word) and honour. The spirituality which is knitted throughout the book... As a person from Scotland, it fair stirs the Celtic blood(!)
A brilliant story from a brilliant story-teller. The ongoing 'evolution' of characters, not seen any better than in the change from academics to full blown warriors, is as true to life as it gets. The tight lines of prose and attention to detail bring the whole thing vividly to life!
A 'fantasy' world never seemed so real since JRR Tolkien. Very much recommended." - Other Retailer's Reviewer.
