A Land Divided


1081. William ’ s bloody conquest is over and Britain is under Norman rule. But one bastion of resistance remains: Wales. A divided land where brother fights brother and kings battle for power. The English use this to further their own ends, and while one king is tempted by an offer he can onl resist, the others wage war over long-forgotten feuds.

Gruffydd ap Cynan, true heir to kingdom of Gwynedd, is in exile across the sea. When he tell of the fear of the Welsh people by the imposter in his throne, Gruffydd unites with Tewdwr, a monarch deposed by the traitors, and they forge an army from the ashes of their kingdoms. But Tewdwr ’ s widowed and daughter—the source of much of the allies ’ strength—are a weakness their enemies will exploit.

Betrayal, treachery and war await, but thes men realis they must fight to the bitter end, when the sundered lands of Wales are drenched ... in the lood of kings.

Being welsh myself, I enjoy fiction about Wales and this was definitely no exception, very entertaining, not too taxing as the number and names of characters were manageable.

I 'm mostly listening to it as an audiobook and and enjoy pronouncing some of the Welsh names at least in my head.

Without giving way the outcome, I ill kno that Book One is very full story on its own, but it sets the stage for the next installments nicely and I am ooking to returning to battle-torn Wales soon.

And then Nesta enters the story.

While all of the haracters are simply types and lack depth, many, such as Nesta and Annie Apples among others, do not.

Ashman seems to sense this and eventually gives more space to those characters.

But, when all was said and done, I till look forward to book 2 hoping our characters have each developed personality and each situation a little more believability.
