Overview

PREVIOUS TITLE: WOVEN WITH A SILENT MOTTOThe Deáine are on the move, and that means trouble for the five Islands! For thirty years an unofficial and tense truce has existed between the Islanders and their would-be conquerors, the Deáine, but that’s changed.In easternmost Rheged, Ruari MacBeth thinks all he has to worry about is the bad news he’s bringing back home from abroad – he couldn’t be more wrong. Before he knows it he finds himself a hunted man, his world in turmoil and his friends in danger.On the southern Island of Prydein what should have been a simple diplomatic visit for young Queen Alaiz, swiftly turns into a nightmare as she and her companion are kidnapped. Who betrayed them and why? On northern Celidon, former Knight Maelbrigt finds himself battling with bands of killers he thought he’d never need to face again, as he desperately tries to save the life of Taise, the woman he loves.For Cwen and her new friend, Swein, in Brychan the bigger danger seems to come from the mad and dangerous King Edward for whom murder is a sport and power a drug. Yet they are only ordinary folk – do the Knights know something different? For all of them, rumours abound and the Deáine are never far from any of their minds. Are the Deáine war-mages already in the Islands? Time is running short if the Islanders are to prevent the Deáine’s plans from becoming reality. Only together will they be in with a fighting chance of winning and keeping their freedom.

Meet the Author

I was born and brought up in Birmingham (UK). In my mid teens I suffered from exposure to Tolkien from which I’ve never fully recovered! After leaving school I did a variety of jobs until redundancy threatened, at which point I escaped to university to do the degree I’d always wanted to do and discovered Tolkien’s academic work as well. As a (very) mature student I first acquired a BA in Medieval Studies, then followed it with an MPhil in Anglo-Saxon History. Old English remains a facination and one day - when and if I ever get the time - I'd really love to learn Old Welsh. By this time anything and everything medieval had become a bit of an addiction, as proven by my ever expanding bookcases of reference works (which one day might take over the house) and visits to every castle and ruin I could find. All this, coupled with a life of avid reading of fantasy, spurred me into writing about a fictional world as a way of exploring the ideas about the bits of history which remain obscure, or how things might have turned out differently. Apart from the completed fantasy quartet set in the Islands I am also writing a historical series based on the Robin Hood legend and set very firmly in the late twelfth/early thirteenth centuries. The aim with these coming books is to return the legend to its true setting, but to tell more would be to spoil the fun...! I currently live in Worcester with one husband and several recued lurchers, one of whom shares my photo - which is nothing unusual in my life! I support Evesham Greyhound & Lurcher Rescue.

1422 nook pages. I dont know why their is no book explanation, but i took a chance to read. Beautiful is about the best way to describe this wonderful book. I dont know if it is continuing a series or the first book in one, but i will anxiously try to find more of this series. Its the classic fantasy fiction novel, with an island nation of our heroes, which is four mqin isands. And the antagonists, who for centuries have tried to enslave the islanders. This novel sets up 8 years after the last great war between the two. And introduces us te the many varied and unique characters on both sides of the conflict, and insights to their schemes and depravities. Please if you read fantasy fiction. Dont miss our on this one
