The triumphant third volume of the unique and magical Duncton Chronicles.
The ruthless war against the Stone has almost been won by disciples of the Word – only wild Siabod and mysterious Beechenhill still hold out, and everywhere the followers of the Stone go in peril of their lives.
Yet in the shadows of Duncton Wood a new light is shining. For the Stone Mole has come, to revive the moles’ faith in themselves and in the ancient power of the Stone to defeat and deny the evil Word.
But it is a task that will demand a greater sacrifice than any mole has yet to face…
A story of courage, loyalty and the power of love… inspired by the shadows and light of England’s most beautiful countryside.
