Sentinel Stones…

…But she knew.

She had seen it when the vision took her there…

Following the spirit path on the hawk’s wings…

They marked her when they had realised that she knew…

She would bear no children now, save at the god’s bidding.

She would not cook or weave for her man.

She had been marked for the enclosure…

*

…Above her the procession had wound its way to the top of the mound.

   Dark silhouettes against the flames are turned to the steep slope of the hillside beyond…

They are watching the dancing flames as the torchbearers climb…

They wait in a silence broken only by the drums…

As the lights crawl across the slope…

Taking their places around the great figure carved in chalk.

It had always been…

*

…None remembered a time before it was…

It was too big to see, too high, fit for the Gods alone.

You could see a curve, a line, a shape… but not the whole.

Not clearly.

Except tonight when the sky was dark and cold and the torches took their place around the image, outlining it in flame.

The flickering shadows and lights brought it to life.

It seemed to move, a strange animation on the hilltop…

THE INITIATE

Book One of the Triad of Albion

Stuart France & Sue Vincent

The Initiate is the story of a journey beyond the realms of our accustomed normality.

It is a true story told in a fictional manner. In just such a way did the Bards of old hide in the legends and deeds of folk heroes, those deeper truths for those ‘with eyes to see and ears to hear’.

Don and Wen, two founding members of a new Esoteric School, meet to explore an ancient sacred site, as a prelude to the School’s opening event. The new School is to be based upon a nine-fold system and operate under the aegis of the Horus Hawk.

The trip does not unfold as planned.

Instead, Don and Wen, guided by the birds, find themselves embarking upon a journey that will lead them through a maze of spiritual symbolism, to magical mysteries and the shadowy figure of the Ninth Knight.

As the veils thin and waver, time shifts and the present is peopled with shadowy figures of the past, weaving their tales through a quest for understanding and opening wide the doors of perception…
