With Merlin dead, the succession undecided, and the Celtic church on the defensive from Rome, intrigue sweeps the court of the High King Arthur. But it’s battlefield news that consumes Queen Gwenhyfar’s young scribe, Kella O’Toole: her fiancé is dead and her father gone missing. Determined to find him at all costs, Kella defies the queen’s orders and sets out for Pictish territory. Her foster brother Alyn, a disillusioned priest who questions his calling, agrees to help her. The journey itself is perilous. But it’s their secrets that land Kella and Alyn in a viper’s nest of treachery that threatens both their lives and the future of Albion. Can they summon the love and faith they need to find their way not only out of danger, but into happiness? Brilliantly researched, vividly imagined, and movingly written—a memorable climax to the Brides of Alba series.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This story is set in late Sixth Century AD. Alyn O'Byrne and Kella O'Toole are the two main characters in this book who have been sent on a very important mission for to deliver the written books Kella has scribed to Mons Seion near Fortingall. Through trial and tribulation, these two characters who are childhood family friends find themselves rediscovering who they are along the way. They are also trying to find Kella's love Lorne who has been lost in a battle between the Miathi and one of King Arthur's armies who were ambushed along with her father Egan O'Toole. Both Alyn and Kella's family play a very important role in the fate of both of these characters past, present and future. Through strong character development and story research and background, this book should be labeled as Historical Non-Fiction along with Fiction. Through a very rigorous search of history, Linda Windsor has very effectively written a book about a time where magic, mythology and history combine to make one heck of a great read!! Sit down, grab a comfy blanket and be prepared to be whirled away from the first chapter! I received Rebel by Linda Windsor compliments of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. This is third book in the Brides of Alba Series and I felt so engulfed by this book that I wish there was another book after Rebel to continue the story of these two characters!! I rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars!
The Brides of Alba series by Linda Windsor was just as terrific as her first series. Great character development, built into rich historical detail. You are quickly in another time and place! The romance and faith are strong in all three novels. Enough to make you blush and laugh, but not so much to make you nervous of your mom finding your book! Love them all.
Ok so heres wat i think we shud do....FLASH MOP!!!!!! we r all on the train....and when the capitol dopes least expect it we will start to dance. By keeping them entertained it will distract them from when the rest of us slip away from the mop in a group of about five to ten, knock out the guards, and find the nuclear weapons. Also other group will b hacking into the trains GPS system to change the route to here for the questioning to citizens guards and officals. The group stealing the weapons will make an assembly line to carry the weapons out to a white jeep driven by me! I ll b driving next to the train door as long as i can....
