“Filled with adventure and romance and a touch of fantasy … Highly Recommended.” 5 Stars – CM Reviews
Two siblings pledge their magic to protect their people from the invading English, with the help of the last true Prince of Wales—after his murder.
Welsh warrior-in-training Hyw can control the minds of birds and animals.
His sister Catrin can see the future in a drop of water.
Now Hyw and Catrin must stretch their gifts to stand between their people and the ruthless army of Edward I (a.k.a. Longshanks). When the prince is slain, Hyw’s gift allows him to meld with the prince’s spirit, to guide them in fighting back against the English invaders.
This award-winning medieval fantasy combines magic, mythology, and historical legends with the realities of 13th Century Wales.
