The millions of readers who enjoyed The Crystal Cave will find further enchantment in its sequal, The Hollow Hills. This delightful new novel tells the story of Merlin's guardianship of the young Arthur from his birth to his accession to the throne.
Once again Mary Stewart's readers will find themselves plunged into the colourful world of fifth century Britain. The magic of the changing seasons and the long green rides through dark forests form the backdrop to this brilliant portrayal of the childhood of Arthur. And over it all looms Merlin, the strong yet strangely vulnerable man who sees and knows so much but is powerless to prevent the strife and violence of his turbulent times.
