The Axis Trilogy by Sara Douglass

A wonderful trilogy of love, life, magic and power that keeps us on the edge of that : " I just have to find out what happens next" scenario.  While the series has been named after the male hero " Axis " the inner story is  also about the power of the women involved.  It gives us an insight into Wiccan Lore ( and Law) and the connectivity we all have with the earth.   If you have ever believed that harnessing the wisdom, nurturing and power of earth magic is possible, this book opens the mind and imagination.


Book 1 : BattleAxe


Axis is introduced as the military leader of  a religious order, unaware that he carries the seed of power of

the Star-dance : the energy that connects all living things. In his journey he learns of the betrayals and lies attached to his birth, an adversary that has a strange connection with him and past that links him to the magic he has been raised to despise.  As he shrugs off the restrictive ideology of the religious order, he meets two powerful and yet opposite women who love, teach and influence his path to enlightenment.
