Many Sun-Turnings have passed since the Ardhu the Stone Lord inherited the kingship of Prydn. His illegitimate son Mordraed seeks his father's hall on the Great Plain, and a place among the famed warriors of Kham-el-Ard, but his appearance brings a shadow and a doubt. With his power waning and the land beginning to fail, Ardhu must lead his warriors on a final journey to retrieve a golden Cup, which the Maimed King of the Wasteland foretells will unite a crumbling kingdom. Gal'havad, most trusted of Ardhu's men, and his only legitimate heir - a sickly youth, half in the World of Spirit - is befriended by his half-brother Mordraed and lured into a deathly pact. Meanwhile, The Merlin, old and ill, struggles to see through the darkness that is rising and is made temporarily powerless to help, betrayed by those he thought friends. With An'kelet and Fynavir's illicit affair discovered, Mordraed manipulates his father into leaving his Kingdom to wage war on his former friend and seizes power himself, turning the fields to dust and slighting Khor Ghor, the great temple to the Ancestors upon the Great Plain.. Mordraed, the Dark Moon, has Risen... and the Stones of the Giants' Dance will fall! Stand-alone sequel to STONE LORD Moon Lord is a book set in Britain's prehistory such as you've never read before. Mixing fiction with the latest archaeological discoveries, it covers a prehistoric landscape ranging from Stonehenge and Avebury, to Seahenge in Norfolk and Newgrange in Ireland. A novel of the prehistoric origins of the man we called KING ARTHUR...
Born to a Canadian soldier and English war bride, Janet grew up in Victoria, British Columbia. From an early age she displayed an interest in the past, especially celtic mythology, which was somewhat in the blood as her grandmother came originally from Co.Kildare, Southern Ireland. She wrote her first story at 5 years old, and a novel length fantasy at 12, and she's never stopped...
Growing weary of Canada, the search for inspiration brought her back to the British Isles, first to Derbyshire's Peak District where she first got a taste for her sense of place & memory, finally settling in the West, very close to Stonehenge.
Janet is very well known for being prolific in writing for small press publications, her poetry, and for fan fiction over the 80's and 90's. She has turned her hand to acting, organising events, and a spot of archaeology and tour guiding.
She is author of two best-selling novels about Stonehenge, placing the Arthurian Legends back into the British Bronze Age. Combining real archaeology and a sense of place which brings the landscape and people alive more than ever before, she may be bringing both volumes out as an Omnibus, with all new chapters, in the near future.
Janet has also written a number of smaller stories, available in Kindle format,
dealing with Prehistoric Britain, Robin Hood, & seasonal children's stories using European Folklore, in the vein of The Brothers Grimm and Neil Gaiman.
Her dystopian children's fantasy novel, The Quest For The Rose, is due for publication in the U.S sometime in late 2014.
Reedman's most recent offering confronts the figure of King Richard III, vilified by Tudor propaganda as a conniving, twisted hunchback who murdered his nephews to get to the throne.
As we are learning from the recent rediscovery of his remains in Leicester, as well as a wealth of documentary evidence also recently found, the real story is of a King who was up against an almost impossible task, perhaps doomed from the beginning.
Sacred King is a historical fantasy novella dealing with Bosworth and its aftermath. Primarily a redemption tale, it uses local Leicestershire folklore & the Prophecies of Thomas the Rhymer. It has been likened to a modern day Dante's Inferno, culminating nicely to the later day discovery, televised to the world, with brooding clouds overhead, on the very anniversary of the battle.
