More About Stephen R. Lawhead
Stephen Lawhead is an internationally acclaimed author of mythic history and imaginative fiction. He was born in 1950, in Nebraska in the USA. His early life was lived in America where he earned a university degree in Fine Arts and attended theological seminary for two years.
His first professional writing was done at Campus Life magazine in Chicago, where he was an editor and staff writer. During his five years at Campus Life he wrote hundreds of articles and several non-fiction books.
After a brief and unsuccessful foray into the music business—as president of his own record company—he launched his free-lance career in 1981. In the Hall of the Dragon King was his first novel.
In 1986 the Lawhead family moved to Britain so that Stephen could conduct research for the PENDRAGON CYCLE books. They settled there permanently in 1990, with some years spent living in Austria and a sabbatical in the United States.
In addition to his twenty-four novels, he has written nine children's books, many of them originally offered to his two sons, Drake and Ross. He is married to Alice Slaikeu Lawhead, with whom he has collaborated on books and articles. They make their home in Oxford, England.
Stephen's non-fiction, fiction and children's titles have variously been published in twenty-four foreign languages. He has won numerous industry awards, and in 2003 was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters by the University of Nebraska.
Reviews - What do customers think about The Silver Hand: Book Two in The Song of Albion Trilogy?
Excellent Customer Service that exceeded expectations Nov 12, 2008
When I received the product from the seller, it was not in the "new" condition that as described on the this site listing. I returned the book, however I sent it to the warehouse instead of the return processing center. Because of this mistake, the seller was not able to locate the book, however, they still issued me a full refund. This is customer service that exceeded my expectations. I might have expected a partial refund, but was very pleased to recieve the full refund. I will certainly do business with them again despite the small problem with the condition of the book.
A cracking good read Jul 13, 2008
I came across the Song of Albion series by accident and have really enjoyed it. Extremely well written and keeps your interest from the first page to the last. Expect the unexpected in this book but mainly just let your imagination run wild.
Great Fantasy Jul 10, 2008
This is the second book in the series, I finished this book in about 8 - 10 hours. I had just finished the first in the series and was curious as to what happened next. I opened up this book and didn't put it down until I was completely done with it. A great book that I would recommend to anyone.
Super Reader Aug 26, 2007
The Silver Hand is the middle book in Stephen R. Lawhead's Song of Albion trilogy, and, in general, is more involved with the young bloke that becomes Lugh in Albion, and how that happens. He has learned to be a warrior.
It details the choices he has to make about fighting, violence, and who to protect and how to protect them when you can, giving shelter and aid to those that need it.
Awesome Jun 27, 2007
I love Trilogies and when I saw all three of the Song of Albion series on sale together I decided to give them a try. I had never read SRL before, but the concept of this series really caught my attention. Needless to say I was hooked. I have since read just about everything SRL has written, since March!
As may have been mentioned before, the book takes a little while to get started (most Lawhead's books do), but it was all necessary backround and character development. I guess he could have just created a "time machine", but that wouldn't have been anywhere nearly as interesting a storyline Lawhead has created here. Part Fantasy, part historical fiction/speculation, I found this whole series both entertaining and educational and really created a good foundation for his other Celtic based storylines (i.e. Pendragon series, Hood, Celtic Crusades etc.)
I would definetly start with the first book, The Paradise War, since this is a "true" trilogy, meaning it was meant to be a series right from the start and one book builds on the next with no "real" ending until the final chapter of the last book. The good thing is, the whole trilogy is complete and you don't have to wait for the next book in the series to be written. I read one book right after the other in about a week. I don't know if it's just because this is first series of Lawhead's I read or what, but this is still my favorite SRL series, one which no doubt I will re-read more than once.
