Unhappily married to Stephen de Marais, the Welsh princess, Nest, becomes increasingly embroiled in her countrymen's resistance to the Norman occupation of her family's lands. She plans to visit King Henry in the hope of securing a life away from her unwanted husband, but grieving for the loss of his son, the King is obsessed with relics and prophecies.

Meanwhile, Haith tries to avoid the reality that Nest is married to another man by distracting himself with the mystery of the shipwreck in which the King's heir drowned. As Haith pieces together fragments of the tragedy, he discovers a chest full of secrets, but will the revelations bring a culprit to light and aid the grieving King?

Will the two lovers be united as Nest fights for independence and Haith struggles to protect King Henry?

About the Author

Tracey Warr was born in London and lives in the UK and France. She started writing medieval fiction after working as a contemporary art curator and lecturer. She draws on her knowledge of art history for her fiction - using objects, images and places to inspire her writing. Her fiction is based on historical research and she imagines in the gaps between known historical facts. A reviewer described her novels as 'machiavellious plotting ... human chess played with lives and lands'.

She studied English Literature at Oxford University, holds a PhD in Art History from Plymouth University, and an MA in Creative Writing from University of Wales. Her first historical novel Almodis (Impress, 2011) was set in early medieval France and Spain. It was shortlisted for the Impress Prize, presented in the Rome Film Festival Book Initiative and won a Santander Research Award. Her second novel The Viking Hostage (Impress, 2014) topped Amazon Australia Kindle's Medieval bestsellers list. She was awarded a Literature Wales Writer’s Bursary for work on her latest novel, Conquest: Daughter of the Last King (Impress, 2016) about the Welsh princess Nest and King Henry I, set in 12th century Wales and England. She received an Author’s Foundation Award from the Society of Authors for a biography she is working on about three French noblewomen, three sisters, who held power in 11th century Toulouse, Carcassonne, Barcelona and the Pyrenees. She writes book reviews for Historical Novels Review and Times Higher Education. She recently published a future fiction novella, Meanda, in English and French. She also writes on contemporary artists. Her most recent publication on contemporary art is Remote Performances in Nature and Architecture (Ashgate, 2015).
