The much-loved classic, finally in ebook. First published over 50 years ago, The Weirdstone of Brisingamen is one of the greatest fantasy novels of all time. When Colin and Susan are pursued by eerie creatures across Alderley Edge, they are saved by the Wizard. He takes them into the caves of Fundindelve, where he watches over the enchanted sleep of one hundred and forty knights. But the heart of the magic that binds them -- Firefrost, also known as the Weirdstone of Brisingamen -- has been lost. The Wizard has been searching for the stone for more than 100 years, but the forces of evil are closing in, determined to possess and destroy its special power. Colin and Susan realise at last that they are the key to the Weirdstone's return. But how can two children defeat the Morrigan and her deadly brood? Book one in the Weirdstone trilogy, followed by THE MOON OF GOMRATH.

We tend to forget, after so many multi-volume fantasy works, that epics were shorter than novels. This story is epic in that older sense, a tightly written account of a few battles in a long war. Garner weaves Celtic and Norse folklore together into a plausible English mythology. His dwarf characters, in particular, are down-to-earth in the way dwarves ought to be.

The scenes where the children and dwarves are working their way through narrow underground passages are, without any violence whatever, some of the most frightening I have ever read.
