What if time were like a roll of silk, if the adventurous could slip from layer to layer, and if this were something not new, but as old as King Arthur? When snow falls thick on Birmingham, Scott Raynall is caught in an adventure which mingles magic, myth and sword play. Ghosts, giants, highwaymen, and the steady crunch crunch of horse hooves on the frozen land.
A magical novel.
Magic breathed from a thousand years catches 12 year old Scott Raynall in an adventure beyond his imagination across frozen wastes that traverse not only middle England, but time itself. Catapulted into a quest to save his mother, he skifts through time, facing sword, cannon, ghosts and deep enchantment.
Setting off with new found friend Gavin Knight — a man who Scott perceives already to be more than he seems — he travels back through time witnessing the Civil War, the execution of Piers Gaveston, and finally the depredations of Stephen and Mathilda's Anarchy. But it is the intertwining of Arthur's realm Logres and the enchantresses of Avalon that becomes Scott's most pressing concern, and his quest to save his mother quickly becomes a desperate adventure to save time itself.
