A shard from an ancient Arctic meteorite, the sacred stone becomes legendary and the centre of controversy and crime. Theft, mayhem and murder follow it wherever it goes - and it goes a long way. From Greenland to Ireland, England and France the stone is handed from one distinctive character to another. The five stories are rich in historical detail and take the reader on an enjoyable romp through six centuries. Every aspect of Mediaeval life is portrayed from the court of Edward III to the plight of the persecuted Jews in Norwich and the subjugation of the serfs in rural Devon. I was a little surprised that the final story took us out of the Mediaeval era and into the world of Shakespeare's London, but as it contained the best description of a hangover I have ever read, I am not unduly bothered by this anomaly.
My only complaint is that the eBook contained no details about which author wrote which section, and it required detective work on my part to find out more about the creators of my favourite characters and stories in 'The Sacred Stone.'
