    Emlyn a teenage boy searching for answers teams up with Max a street wise girl who thinks she has them all Together they unwittingly unleash an ancient power that has existed in a parallel universe a power that has been kept at bay by generations of keepersMeddling with the unknown becomes deadly when they take what is not theirs and place themselves and others in appalling danger All the confidence and brashness of youth tangles with ancient savagery and a bind which has held a family in trow for many hundreds of yearsThis is a powerful and insightful fantasy adventure with warts and all believable characters written for young adults by a new author to watch

    I liked The Stone Crown very much because it was an entertaining and well written fantasy book for young adults It began like many other YA books but gradually the plot began to develop and the book became very interesting and unputdownable It was nice to read an original and fascinating YA fantasy book for a changeIn my opinion Malcolm Walker has managed to write a good book because he doesn't underestimate the intelligence of his readers Many YA writers tend to emphasize certain things too much in their books but not Malcolm Walker – he trusts that his readers can think certain things for themselves He handled some contemporary things in his books and he did it well – for example references to mental illness and drug abuse were handled exceptionally wellThe main characters Emlyn and Maxine were interesting and realistic characters – in my opinion they were just like normal teenagers because the writer described both characters in a realistic way I thought it was great that Emlyn was a nature photographer because it's difficult to find nature photographers in fantasy booksMalcom Walker used Scottish accent in dialogues he used words like nae and mebbe I thought it was nice that he decided to use Scottish accent because it added realism to the book I admit that at first it was a bit awkward to read these words but once I got used to them they didn't bother me muchThis book contained several short chapters which were told from the viewpoint of Cei King Arthur's sargeant at arms I enjoyed reading them because they added a lot of depth and style to the story These chapters were charmingly magical and well written I think that everybody who likes to read stories about King Arthur will find these chapters interesting because this book is a contemporary reworking of the Arthurian legendThe supernatural elements were handled in a good way The irresistible blend of mystery adventure and young adult themes made me want to read this book as soon as possibleImageThis book contained two detailed maps of Yeaveburgh the Scottish village These maps were excellent because all the places were marked wellI can highly recommend The Stone Crown to young adults because it's a good and exciting fantasy book This book blends contemporary youth issues and historical fantasy uite successfully – I think that YA readers will enjoy reading this book I also think that many adults will like this book

    This is a book written for secondary students Malcolm Walker was a lecturer in English at Adelaide University and was doing this as a PhD thesis Yes there is an aspect of young adult fiction about it but it is still a well written tale with characters well drawn It develops a plot around the interaction between King Arthur and a modern day family on the Scottish border This family has a connection with the Arthurian legends The book has atmosphere builds tension and creates an involvement because the detail is well thought out I enjoyed it and an adult version would have been preferable for me but this one is pretty good as a diverting well constructed read
