The Duncton Chronicles Duncton Wood Duncton Quest Duncton Found (ebook coming soon) Praise for Duncton Wood ‘An inspiring novel... An epic in the tradition of The Lord of the Rings’ Sunday Times ‘A breathtaking achievement’ Washington Post ‘A passionate, lyrical, appealing tale... Consistently absorbing... Enchanting’ Cosmopolitan ‘A great big mole-epic with a great big theme’ Daily Mail ‘Horwood has placed his astute ear to the ground and fashioned... a modern masterpiece... Classic themes of conflict are here, good and evil, love and hate, the clash of traditional and modern values.’ Houston Chronicle ‘Destined to be a classic... A beautiful story.’ Little Rock Arkansas Gazette 'An earthy epic fantasy... The themes of power, survival, passion, courage, sacrifice, love and devotion are presented with astonishing clarity.' Los Angeles Times Book Review ‘An absolute spell-binder, by Lord of the Rings out of Watership Down. I found it enchanting, compulsive reading... I am still haunted by its beauty’ Magnus Magnusson ‘The stuff of legend... Horwood’s natural world is lyrically realised, his mole empire a delight, his romantic tale full of adventure, suspense, battle and searchings... A rich, cautionary fairy tale.’ Publishers Weekly ‘More readable and more rewarding than The Lord of the Rings’ The Times ‘Special, endearing, successful... truly touching... This is a novel for the pure-at-heart and slightly naive, for the childishness in the weary, and the children we should be having... Allegorically fabulous.’ Village Voice ‘Luxuriantly written... richly drawn, painting a detailed and loving panorama.’ Associated Press

Duncton Found

Now began great years of recovery in Duncton Wood, and moledom too. These
were the years when the teachings of the Stone Mole, and the gospel of his life,
were first scribed by Mallet of Grafham, and told and retold by many a mole.
