Overview

The Coranians have won the war, and Kymru is defeated. For Havgan, however, the victory is not complete. Cadair Idris, the hall of the High Kings, remains closed to him. To gain entrance, he must locate the Four Treasures—the Stone, the Spear, the Cauldron, and the Sword—and bring them to the Guardian of the Doors. Only then can he proclaim himself High King of Kymru. But the Treasures were hidden long ago. In order to save Kymru, Gwydion the Dreamer must locate a long-forgotten song and the clues it contains before Havgan does. Following the dictates of the song, he persuades Rhiannon, her daughter Gwenhwyvar, and his nephew Arthur to set out with him on the dangerous quest. Dogged by Havgan's soldiers, they must hurry to find the artifacts. Soon, distrust and fear complicate their already difficult journey, and one of them must risk life and limb on the next move in their deadly game.

Murder, treason, magic, and love combine to make this epic fantasy a tale that will blow you away.
Library Journal

The conquest of the land of Kymru is complete. The Coranian war leader Havgan seeks the title of High King but lacks the four sacred items that would confirm his kingship-the Stone, the Cauldron, the Spear, and the Sword. Among the Kymri fugitives, Gwydion the Dreamer and his three chosen companions (Rhiannon the exiled queen; her daughter Gwenhwyvar, the Princess of Prydyn; and Gwydion's nephew Arthur, destined to be High King) set out to find the four items before they can fall into Coranian hands. Taylor's third installment of her epic reimagining of the story of Arthur (after Night Birds' Reign and Crimson Fire) draws heavily on Welsh mythology rather than the traditional medieval legends used by Sir Thomas Malory in Le Morte d'Arthur. This volume belongs, along with its predecessors, in most libraries.

    The Coranians have defeated their enemies the Kymru in battle. However, their leader Havgan does not celebrate the victory as his troops do he feels there remains one last task to complete before he can claim victory. He must find the four treasures (the Stone, the Spear, the Cauldron and the Sword) that will gain him entrance to the Hall of the High Kings, Cadair Idris then he can claim victory as the High King of Kymru.---------------- However, Haygan knows his quest is impossible as the Treasures were concealed ages ago. He orders Gwydion the Dreamer to insure he achieves his goal soonest. Reluctantly, Gwydion seeks a lost song which contains clues to the relics in the lyrics at the same time he has doubts about the worthiness of his liege to be the High king. He recruits Rhiannon the witch, her daughter Gwenhwyvar, and his nephew Arthur to accompany him on the dangerous quest while Havgan's soldiers follow them as Haygan trusts no one especially someone allied with a hated witch. In spite of blood relations and friendships when attractions erupt, the wary foursome doubts the loyalty of one other, but for the quartet to succeed, they must depend on one another.----------- The latest High Kings romantic fantasy (see CRIMSON FIRE and NIGHT BIRDS REIGN) is a strong tale in which the quest and the ¿counter¿-quest make for an engaging twisting thriller. The story line is action-packed as like any quest fantasy there is a lot of strange evil creatures out there. However, it is the quartet distrusting one another even as they pair off in love feelings no one wants especially at this dangerous time. Holly Taylor is at her best with her strong High King saga.-------------------------- Harriet Klausner
