The Seeing Stone

by Kevin Crossley-Holland
Release date: 2000
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasyhistorical fantasy, young adult

It is 1199 and young Arthur de Caldicot is waiting impatiently to grow up and become a knight. One day his father's friend Merlin gives him a shining piece of obsidian and his life becomes entwined with that of his namesake, the Arthur whose story he sees unfold in the stone. In this many-layered novel, King Arthur is seen as a mysterious presence influencing not just one time and place, but many. The 100 short chapters are almost like snapshots – not only of the mythic tales of King Arthur, but the earthy, uncomfortable reality of the Middle Ages.
