"A masterful picture of Wales in the 13th century...vivdly pictured as grandly beautiful, its people volatile, stubborn and mystic."THE SAN DIEGO UNIONThirteenth-century Wales is a divided country, ever at the mercy of England's ruthless, power-hungry King John. Then Llewelyn, Prince of North Wales, secures an uneasy truce with England by marrying the English king's beloved, illegitimate daughter, Joanna. Reluctant to wed her father's bitter enemy, Joanna slowly grows to love her charismatic and courageous husband who dreams of uniting Wales. But as John's attentions turn again and again to subduing Wales--and Llewelyn--Joanna must decide to which of these powerful men she owes her loyalty and love.A sweeping novel of power and passion, loyalty and lives, this is the book that began the trilogy that includes FALLS THE SHADOW and THE RECKONING.

So good! Except for one spoilery thing. Folks who have read the book will know what I'm talking about. It made me really resent the author until I realized that it actually happened in history. Still couldn't get it out of my head. Just don't fall in love with the characters too much.

I quite enjoyed this one. I have read the other series with the Devil's brood and enjoyed them as well, but this one seemed a much better read.
