I finished this book whilst on vacation and didn't have a chance to immediately write the review, so this will be brief. Mike Crowson gives us a well-researched and entertaining archaeological adventure with some paranormal and pagan overtones that kept me turning the theoretical pages (I read an eBook edition). Highly enjoyable and recommended to those who like this sort of thing.

I read this because my great great great grandfather came from the Orkney Islands of Scotland where this book takes place. If you like trying to figure out history this book was great. I really enjoyed it more than I thought I would. You have to have an interest in a little bit of anthropology and what people find when digging in ruins to really enjoy it.
Although promoting a vast amount of prehistory ventures, those whom are not a prehistoric and astral fan will likely not find this ebook suitable. Historic events in this ebook occurred often and provided me with fascinating admiration toward Mike Crowson, author of this ebook and other fine works.
