" Penman's characters are so shrewdly imagined, so full of resonant human feeling that they seem to be on the page....Most compelling is the portrait of the Welsh as wild and rugged as their landscape." SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLEHere, alive from the pages of history, is the compelling tale of a Celtic society ruled by Llewelyn, Prince of Wales, on a collison course with a feudal realm of Edward I. WIth this last book in the extraordinary trilogy that began with HERE BE DRAGONS and continued in FALLS THE SHADOW, Sharon Kay Penman has written a beautiful and moving conclusion to her medieval saga. For everyone who has read the earlier books in this incomparable series or ever wanted to experience the rich tapestry of British history and lore, this bold and romantic adventure must be read.

For a historical novel, it certainly seems that Ms. Penman is working out feelings she has about people within her own family.

Gave up on the book halfway through because have better things to do than spend time in the Penman household. Mind you, that was 350 pages in!

There's a saying that if you worry that you might be boring, you're probably not, because you're going to be aware of when you're boring people, but if it never occurs to you that you might ever be boring to people, you probably are a great big bore.
