Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book is so rich that it is impossible to recount every nuance,every emotion transmitted, each of the author's choices to depart fromtradition or adopt unfamiliar elements, while manipulating them in favor of the economy of the narration... It tells the story of war withrawness and realism, love with feeling and sensuality, magic withnaturalness and enchantment... Ruth Nestvold truly has my gratitude andcommendation for managing to rewrite and re-invent this story of loveand war so masterfully, creating one of the most beautiful books I haveever read."

- Review of the Italian translation of Yseult by Valentina Coluccelli

From the Author

Yseult, A Tale of Love in the Age of King Arthur is Book One of the Pendragon Chronicles. I have long been fascinated with Arthurian fiction, be it fantasy, historical fiction, or the legends that have come down to us from the Middle Ages. But my favorites have always been the novels that try to create a historic Dark Ages setting for the legends, such as Rosemary Sutcliff's Sword at Sunset. I tried to do something similar while writing Yseult -- just with magic. My friend Elizabeth Bear once called the book "high mud fantasy," an excellent description to my way of thinking!

Many of the twists in my version of the tragic love story of Tristan and Iseult, as well as my portrayal of "the court of King Arthur," come from less well known Arthurian traditions and historical research. I have amassed shelves and shelves of books on ancient Ireland, the Celts, Arthurian and Celtic legends, Roman and Sub-Roman Britain, and the question of Arthur's historicism. I hope my research makes for a richer reading experience.

Book Two of the Pendragon Chronicles, Shadow of Stone, appeared in June, 2012. It picks up the story ten years after the events of Yseult. If you enjoyed Yseult, be sure to check out Shadow of Stone!

This edition contains the complete text of the novel, all four books:
- Part I: Two Women
- Part II: A Man and a Woman
- Part III: Two Men and a Woman
- Part IV: Two Women and a Man
