Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Christopher Gravett's The Castles of Edward I in Wales 1277-1307 tells of a king's march into Wales to subdue the rebel Welsh princes - an unusal march in which the king had a castle erected wherever his army rested. The design, development and defense strategies of these castles is outlined in a fine book military libraries strong in strategic history will appreciate." -The Bookwatch (December 2007)

"This book briefly describes the Welsh wars campaigns, and then surveys the castles built or improved by Edward. Further sections...describe life in the castles in peacetime and war... This excellent book on a fascinating subject will engross anyone with the least interest in fortifications before gunpowder." - Bolling Smith, The Coast Defense Journal (November 2007)

"Overall it is an excellent addition to the Fortress series and a must read for students of the subject. I found it a fascinating read and I'm positive that you will as well." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com (July 2007)

"There are many excellent illustrations including plans, cutaways, and perspective views... This book is a worthy addition to the library of those interested in the development of castles." -Coastal Defense Fortifications

    Chapter 7

    "I am surprised you found everything okay. We haven't cleaned that room in years. Everything just keeps piling up," Anna chuckled as we hauled the dresser upstairs. <p>
    <p> I nodded. "It really could use some cleaning." <p>
    <p> "Yes," Anna agreed, "but no matter. We can leave it there for a little while yet. There is no need to start a big project right after you move in, right?" <p>
    <p> "Right," I said, making sure not to get on her dark side. They were a nice couple, but the crazy things they seemed to beloeve frightened me. A lot. Anna left me to continue unpacking. <p>
    <p> "I'll be back in a bit with some tea and biscuits, love." She closed the door with a soft click. <p>
    <p> Almost immediately, Bella, Alfred, and Julius the rainbow frog weasel came into visibility. "Child, what kind of crap is that?" <p>
    <p> "Uuhh, my dresser. It was all I could find." I glared at the fairy. <p>
    <p> "I don't think it is bad, Remi. It is a really pretty color, actually," Alfred comented. "In fact, I think it is my favorite color!" <p>
    <p> "Sorry, Alfred, but I don't think that particular shade of brown is very pretty." I patted my friend's back. <p>
    <p> Alfred gave me an odd look. "Brown? I'm not talking about the brown part. I'm talking about the outside. It's glowing green!" <p>
    <p> "Lordy, Alfred, you are already useless. Don't bring your stupidity into it!" Bella snorted. <p>
    <p> "Yeah! Don't be stupid!" Julius cackled. <p>
    <p> "Shut up, Julius. That isn't helping any." Belka pushed the rainbow frog weasel. <p>
    <p> "Guys," I interrupted, "Be quiet for just a moment. If Alfred is right about seeing something weird around the dresser, then maybe we should check it out. He might actually be right!" <p>
    <p> "And unicorns fly," Bella mumbled. <p>
    <p> "They are called pegasi." Alfred snapped. I rolled my eyes and sat in front of the dresser. I breathed in slowly. Once. Twice. Three times. I became nothing but a wisp of air, a single soul. Localized bursts of color filled the space around me. The pale orange of Julius. The purple of Bella. The electric blue of Alfred. The pine green of... of the dresser. My yellow blob of color reached for the aura, but when I was only withing inches of it, a brilliant light sparked and as a white hot pain fillied me for a split moment, I was thrown back.
