Fantasy trilogy read in the 80s, involving witches/wizards and Stonehenge
Join LibraryThing to post.
I think one of the books had a title something like "The White Witch"? I remember there are wizards and witches, and that they use Stonehenge (or similar structures) to travel (in space, maybe in time?); one evil(ish) wizard uses it also to change his soul into a younger body. I read the books in the 80s; I don't remember if they were specifically targeted at young adults, but they probably were. I've tried to find the books with Google using the above information, but haven't succeeded.
Thanks a lot!
Not 'The Dark is Rising' series by Susan Cooper? One of the books is titled 'The Gray King'.
None of the plot points noted match with the Dark is Rising series. I'm not sure what it is, but it's not that. I will keep thinking!
Thanks, everybody! I hope someone can help me find this one. I just checked "The Dark is Rising" and that's definitely not it. The Stonehenge (or similar structure) thing was important because one of the good guys is taken by one of the bad guys, who takes over his body, and he becomes the protagonist of the second or third book, if I remember correctly. When he takes over the other man's body, it's more like a fusion of minds than a replacement, so the bad guy stops being quite so bad...
Funny, I remember more or less what the cover of one of the books looked like, but can't remember the name well...
Was there a strong anti-Roman/Caesar sentiment/plot going on ? I'm thinking of the Tros of Samothrace series, but it's not a trilogy afaik though it's been republished with some variations to the number of volumes.
For some reason I seem to remember a part where a protagonist might have been brought unwillingly to Stonehenge for indeterminate shenanigans, but this is all incredibly old and fuzzy so I might be lights-years off the mark.
