Yseult: A Tale of Tragedy in the Age of King Arthur

Pronoun

“Gripping historical fantasy!” “Simply epic!”

For the price of a truce, Yseult is sent to a world where magic is dying - to marry the father of the man she loves.
5th Century Britain is a land on the brink of war. Abandoned by the once great Roman Empire, it must see to its own defense. Under the leadership of Arthur, the kings of Britain fight to push back the Saxon hordes and save what is left of civilization.
The Pendragon Chronicles tell the Arthurian legends re-imagined through what little is known of the historical details of the era. Here is no chivalric society of knights and ladies; here, the battles are real and gritty, love is mixed with lust, and it is not a given that the good survive.

This epic retelling of the tragic legend of Yseult and Drystan plays out against the backdrop of a violent world threatening to descend into the Dark Ages. As a member of the Old Race of Ireland, Yseult could act as a bridge between the old age and the new - but will the price be too high?

What readers are saying about The Pendragon Chronicles:
- “This book is simply Epic! Not only for the length of it (came as a shock after reading novellas for a while!) but also for the amount of history, information and detail given.” Review of Yseult by Marissa.
- “For those who like a strong historical component in their historical fiction. Yseult is fully realized as an Irish princess, with a component of “powers” totally appropriate to the myths of Ireland and Arthurian tales. This story made even some of the less likely parts of the tale seem not just plausible, but inevitable.” Review by Cary.
- “The book is much more than a love story. It is truly an epic, exploring the conflicts between paganism and Christianity, political maneuvering between the various kings of Britain and Ireland, the wars between themselves and with the Saxons, and a lot more. It reminded me a bit of The Mists of Avalon, although Yseult was much more fun to read.” Review by Kriti Godey.

A #1 bestseller in Arthurian fantasy and an international success, with translations into German, Italian and Dutch.
