Overview

A tale of timeless love, heroic courage . . . and a race to change the course of destiny itself. I couldn't put it down. This is King Arthur as you've never seen him before. --Anna Elliott, author of the Twilight of Avalon trilogy.

By the autumn of 537 AD, all who are loyal to King Arthur have retreated to a small parcel of land in north Wales. They are surrounded on all sides, heavily outnumbered, and facing near certain defeat.

But Myrddin and Nell, two of the King's companions, have a secret that neither has ever been able to face: each has seen that on a cold and snowy day in December, Saxon soldiers sent by Modred will ambush and kill King Arthur.

And together, they must decide what they are willing to do, and to sacrifice, to avert that fate.

Meet the Author

With two historian parents, Sarah couldn't help but develop an interest in the past. She went on to get more than enough education herself (in anthropology) and began writing fiction when the stories in her head overflowed and demanded she let them out. While her ancestry is Welsh, she only visited Wales for the first time while in college. She has been in love with the country, language, and people ever since. She even convinced her husband to give all four of their children Welsh names.

She makes her home in Oregon.

Sarah Woodbury offers a new spin on the Arthurian legend. Joining the Welsh king in the waning years of his reign, it follows the knight Myrrdin and the ex-nun he rescues, Nell, as they find their destinies - and the fates of Arthur and his kingdom - intertwined. The pace is brisk, and the time-bending presentation fresh and suspenseful. You grow to truly care about the characters Nell and Myrddin. However, you are often left craving a bit more information, a bit deeper exploration of the characters and their pasts. And the ending comes off a bit abrupt. I literally thought there was a mistake and kept trying to turn the page. Then again, wishing the story didn't have to end is the sign of a good yarn, and I would recommend this for a good historical page-turner.

I'll read anything about King Arthur, but this was so much more than I expected. I loved the characters, loved the setting, loved the story.

I was very sad when I finished this book because it was over! In Cold My Heart, you are introduced to two medieval characters -- a property-less knight and a nun-- in war-torn Wales. Both are loyal to King Arthur, both have had dreams of a final battle in which Arthur has been lured to his death, but neither have ever physically met until one fateful, horrible night. After that point, the two grow to respect, trust, and each other. When they finally confirm that they have both experienced the same exact dream, they join forces to attempt to change the future. The countryside is rife with treacherous false friends, and potential allies that initially appear to be honorless enemies. The knight, Sir Myrddin, is an especially well developed character. His honor and loyalty are unquestionable from the outset, but he develops into a more reflective and purposeful advisor to the king. There are several loose ends when the story ends, which have me holding out hope for a sequel!
