The first of four novels set in Bronze Age Britain, The Tall Stones tells of a society focused around the great circles of Sacred Stones scattered across the landscape.

Kyra's village is threatened by the evil designs of Wardyke, a corrupt and ambitious priest, and she is its only defence. But to defend her community, Kyra must enter the forbidden circle of stones and call upon its unseen, mystical powers...

This book has been called "one of the great esoteric novels of the 20th century".

"...a brilliantly imagined sequence of novels set in Bronze Age Britain." The Guardian

"...the author is so immersed in her subject that no trace of fantasising or contrivance is apparent. Like Joan Grant, she lives her work. Because it is so well done it is believable... The civilisation pictured here is based on many sources: historical, mythological and frankly speculative." The Glasgow Herald

"Equally compelling as psychological or historical fiction." *American Library Booklist *

"She uses the substance of legends, the ancient symbolism of religion and folklore, and a firm belief in the actual, vital energies of the earth to weave an adventure story of the battle between good and evil that combines an unsentimental mysticism with a compassionate understanding of human relations ... It is a book that can be appreciated at many levels." Times Educational Supplement

"Books about magic are commonplace, but books that actually work magic are rare. Moyra Caldecott's trilogy is one of these rarities." Parabola: The Quarterly of Myth and Meaning, New York
