Something a little different here, not so much in the plot as in the characters and setting. The plot is typical medieval murder mystery which, for those of us who can't get enough of it, is good news not bad (as long as it is well written, which this is).
However, the setting in 12th-century North Wales - Gwynedd - is so convincing that it's as if you have left 12th-century Paris and London and York ... and travelled to another country where everything is strange and - as I say, different.
An enthralling story, sympathetic characters and a visit to another time, another culture. What more can you ask of an author?
In 12th-century northern Wales, a king is murdered en route to his royal wedding. Searching for answers, court bard's daughter Gwen uncovers a conspiracy with shattering consequences. An epic adventure bursting with intrigue, suspense, and unforgettable characters.
