When Branwen was little her brother Geraint would tell her old nursery stories of Pooka's and Coblyn's and Gwyllion's. When she was little he told her stories of the Shining Ones. They were the Old Gods, the forgotten Gods, and it was forbidden to talk of them.When Branwen was younger her brother Geraint gave her a slingshot that she taught herself to use and to hunt with. When she was younger he taught her to handle a sword if ever she had a need to defend herself. However these lessons were always with swords of wood and always held in secret.Now Branwen had watched as her brother Geraint displayed bravery and courage when faced with the enemy. She stood and watched as he was killed, she stood and did nothing. But what could she have done against a band of armed men, she was after all still a child.Sent far from home to an unfriendly place with strange customs, Branwen stumbles upon a grove, a place once held sacred but now believed haunted. Here a choice must be made, follow her duty and her parents' wished to a loveless marriage far from her home, or follow her destiny and the wild and pitiless Old Magic of Rhiannon, a Shining One, to an unknown future as a warrior.Rhiannon of the Spring has returned to save a land in danger. Warrior Princess Branwen must learn to cope with grief and loss as she makes a choice between her duty to others and following her own heart. A fantasy adventure based on Welsh mythology, this is a journey of discovering belief in oneself and about standing up for what is right, even if you stand alone. Do not be put off by the cheesy description of this book; what's inside is well worth the read.

In early medieval Wales, fifteen-year-old Princess Branwen¿s world is turned upside down when her older brother is killed by Saxon invaders. Because she is her parents¿ only surviving child, they decide to send her away to live somewhere they hope will be safer. Branwen¿s new home is luxurious, but in this place a woman¿s role is to marry, not to fight. But even bigger changes are in store for Branwen, when the ancient goddess Rhiannon tells Branwen of her destiny as a warrior and savior of her people, but leaves her to make the choice herself if she will follow the prophecy.Branwen is now left with a difficult choice for her future. Does she do as her parents wish, and marry and live a quiet life and hope for peace? Or does she choose the more difficult path, and train as a warrior and face an uncertain future for the sake of her people? And if it is indeed her destiny to fight for her people, is her choice only an illusion?Warrior Princess is the first book in a series about Branwen's adventures, and it was pretty obvious from reading it that it was going to be the first book in a series. It introduces the story, characters, and world, and quite well, I will add - the setting really comes alive. But once Branwen makes her decision about what her future will be, the outcome of her choice is left for future books in the series. If you like historical fantasy, I definitely recommend this book to you, but be prepared to be eagerly waiting for the rest of the books to be published.

A good begining to a story. It had a nice pace and fun characters, I will admit i was expecting a little more action but they worked it. The story is definietly one you should try and i'm really excited to read the next one and see where Brenwin journey leads her. If you like Frewin Jones and his Fairie Path series you will like this book. The way he words things and the medevil feel is totally believeable.

This was a fast paced book that will keep you wanting more, I finished this book in maybe two or three days. I love how Frewin Jones was able to write a exceptionally well written story of how some girls are able make changes that will better themselves to help her survival and the survival of others also! I cant wait for the next book Destinys path coming out in October! I suggest you go and read this book, you will not be dissapointed

the entire book takes place in about week spand maybe. its kind of fast paste. i read this in about a day; its one of those "just for fun" kind of books. The next book in this series is Destiny's Path. I will be getting the next book. you should read it. though i have to admit i winced a couple of times when something embrassing happened to the main character, Branwen.

I didn't really get into this book much, you know? it was kinda blah. But I kinda sorta enjoyed it. I think I prefer Frewin Jones' fairie books. those are good.

I can't wait for the next in this series to come out. I have enjoyed reading and re-reading this story of a young woman with proud ancestry striving to find her way to accept the great responsibilities that she has to face. The character is typical rebellious teen in a strange environment but in a medieval setting. Her fellow teenagers behave in ways that would not be unexpected under the circumstances, making this more believable. I enjoyed not agreeing with the heroine's behaviors at some points and supporting her at others, but enjoyed every minute of it. Frewin Jones builds teenage relationships well, and leaves us hanging, knowing that somewhere along the line relationships have to re-converge. This book flows well, and reads well. I would recommend it to anyone.
