The Silver Hand
Full Product Description
Master creator of realms beyond imagination, Stephen Lawhead, re-opens the door into the fantastical reality of Albion - a world intricately entwined with our own yet separate, pulsing with the raw energy and vivid colour of Celtic myth come to life.
Enter Lewis Gillies, an Oxford student whose search for a missing friend leads him through into this other world and unimagined discoveries about life, good and evil, and his own identity and destiny. Here, the words of the prophetess: "Before Albion is one, the Hero Feat must be performed and Silver Hand must reign." foretell a coming king.
But Lewis, now Albion's renowned champion, Llew, has a more immediate concern: retrieving the treacherous Siawn-Hy who has eluded him in the doorway between worlds and who now, lusting for power, has allied himself with the usurper Meldron.
Forced to flee for their lives, Llew and the bard, Tegid, both horribly wounded, find refuge deep in Albion's heartland. Under their leadership, a wilderness citadel arises. In the heat of battle, the miraculous reign of Silver Hand begins.
If you like Tolkien, Celtic mythology, high fantasy, believable fiction written in poetic and gritty prose - or any other fantasy/fiction for that matter - you will definitely love the Albion series.
The Silver Hand by Stephen R. Lawhead was published by Lion Hudson in July 2013 and is our 23752nd best seller. The ISBN for The Silver Hand is 9781782640493.

Herein lie passion and power, heartbreak and hope - the fate of Albion and the destiny of the long-awaited champion: Silver Hand. 'To set foot in Albion is to enter a rich world of fantasy, rooted in Celtic mythology. An astonishingly imaginative story sequence' - Books Magazine 'An epic struggle between Light and Darkness - well paced, exciting and very well researched' - Forbidden Planet
"Stephen Lawhead's books in general, and this trilogy in particular, satisfy me in every detail. The plots are original and very well researched, and the writing is excellent, with inspiring but not over-used metaphors and subtle alliteration. The characterization is excellent! I could not believe when reading some of these reviews that the reviewer had read the same books that I did. I can truly say that I have never read books in which the characters are better developed than in these." - Other Retailer's Reviewer.
