2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 27 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I get the impression, that this sequel was original written quite quickly after the magnificent Children of the Stones but not picked up by the TV company. I get the impression that, given some of the references and modes of speech, it was polished up about 15 years ago and then re-polished for publication last year. As a result, it doesn't really read too well.

The plot is slight and seems to involve, um...not a lot really. There is a visit to the stones and a mish-mash of African and other mythologies that don't really amount to an awful lot. The central conceit of the Millbury Time Loop is jettisoned, robbing the story of it's unsettling atmosphere in favour of hippy-drippy nonsense that really isn't that threatening. Some returning characters were quite welcome, others, like Dai The Poacher who has become some sort of New Age guru, seem extremely unlikely.

What startles me most is that I recognise the elements of the story from a single issue of a magazine called "The Unexplained" that ran in 1980. It's probably coincidence, but it really feels like a mashup of the articles in issue one: The Dogon, the Legend of Count St. Germain, etc. and as such, seems....a bit desperate?

it's great to see the characters again, it really is, ( and I can't think of Adam Brake as anyone other than a curmudgeonly Gareth Thomas) but I do wish they'd been given something better and more satisfying to do.

I still love the original though!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed. 4 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A poor story, and barely related to the mystery of the original tale. Poorly characterised, and with large jumps,with absolutely no tension or anticipation in the writing. Nice to have the old gang together, that's the only plus point. Someone else should have ghost-written it, and made more of the Stones from the first book. Not good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back to Milbury! 2 Aug 2013
By Tanya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Watched the original Tv series as an adult and had heard rumours about a possible sequel for years. Now it's finally arrived i was not disappointed.
The story takes place 30 years after the original using most of the same characters and settings and follows a different supernatural possession and the results.
The story works well as both a stand alone novel for those unfamiliar with the original series and book and felt like i was revisiting and old friend.
I would recommend this book for anyone who enjoyed the original book and tv series and for those interested in Avebury and stone circles. Bring on the new tv adaptation asap!
