The Scythian Stone Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Scythian Stone

Daynin is a young Scottish farm boy whose quiet life in middle England is turned upside down when he finds what looks like a headstone in his grandfather's field. Boozer, a disfigured old magician, comes along and identifies the object as the Scythian Stone of legend and sets out (supposedly) to help Daynin find a buyer. Standing in the way of that task are the army of Duke Harold of Anglia and the vile Seed of Cerberus, as repelling and conniving a villain as you can ask for, as well as other non-human creatures. On the journey, Daynin is joined by Sabritha, a wench with an attitude who adds a sensual element to the story and several other equally colorful characters. They all band together to outrun, outwit and ultimately outfight those bent on seizing THE SCYTHIAN STONE
