The story begins as Prince Madog hears the bells tolling to announce the death of Owain Gwynedd, his father and beloved ruling Prince of Wales in the year of 1170. His mother had died when he was twelve and his father's new wife, Princess Cristin was not particularly close to Madog, his younger sister Angharad and brothers Einion and Cynwrig and certainly not his older brother and heir, Prince Hywel. She preferred to have one of her own sons, Princes Dafydd, Maelgwyn, Cynan or Rhodri assume the position. The plot arises from these elements and proceeds to exhibit all of the practices of jealousy, duplicity, deceit, betrayal, cruelty, homicide and bloody warfare that so prominently marked this chaotic period and have so variously and often been read by this reviewer. Interestingly however, this book presents a most unusual and refreshing approach. All of the sizeable number of books of this period previously read have prominently involved England, Scotland, France, some of Ireland and occasionally a northern (Viking) contingent. This is the first I've read from a prominent Welsh viewpoint with attendant sizeable, somewhat different multicultural participation.
Conclusion: a most interesting and refreshing addition to stories of this period of unending turmoil peopled by characters with whom the reader can empathize.
