The Secret of the Hanging Stones

Double click on above image to view full picture

A race of tiny magical beings lives on Earth today. But humans are totally unaware of their hidden civilization.

They are kirins.

In the first two books of this trilogy, a group of daring explorers traversed a continent and an ocean to reach their ultimate destination—Stonehenge, the stronghold of kirin magic.

In this final volume, the travelers meet their adversaries, Elamare and the evil magicians of the hanging stones. The voyagers discover kirin magicians imprisoned for centuries, witness the creation of gronoms and volodons, and are threatened by yet another terrifying species—urgols—who challenge them to a deadly game.

Join these bold adventurers as they battle to save the Guardian Magician—and the entire kirin race.

You're reviewing: The Secret of the Hanging Stones

“Having read all three books of James Priest’s wonderful trilogy, I have nothing but praise. The scope of this work, which takes us from the middle of North America across the Atlantic on the backs of birds to Stonehenge, is extraordinary. I enjoyed every moment I spent with the kirins. Priest's work resembles Lord of the Rings, but is more rooted in nature and gentler in tone.”--Mary Logue, award-winning writer and poet, author of Dancing with an Alien and Snatched.

James Priest

James Priest was born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He majored in English in college, and received a Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Minnesota. He spent three years in Japan, caring for casualties from Vietnam, and practiced medicine in Minneapolis for twenty-one years. He now lives with his wife, Ilka, and their dog, Taiho, in the Hawaiian Islands on the isle of Kauai.

Always a fan of miniature things, Priest found it easy to create the race of small magical beings at the heart of his novel. He feels fortunate to have found a second career in writing and is looking forward to publishing the third book in the series, KIRINS: Secret of the Hanging Stones.
