‘A triumph of storytelling … rich, compelling and exciting’ Amazon
This is an evocative and magical romance set in the legendary time of King Arthur. Elen, the daughter of a Welsh chieftain, lives in the border territory with her widowed mother and her brother. Her family are keen to ally with King Arthur, but some of the other local chieftains, in particular Urien, are not so sure. One night Elen is called out to tend to a woman in childbirth, and when her mother offers her some strange advice before she leaves, she realises with trepidation that she is going to the fae folk. In return for her aid in the safe delivery of a baby boy, the fae magically delay her return home. So when she arrives Urien's men have already left, leaving her home in ruins and her mother brutally butchered. Elen determines to ride to Arthur's court to beg for aid in driving out the invaders. What she doesn't know is that Urien is the paramour of Morgaine, the most powerful sorceress on the Isle of Britain, Arthur's half-sister and his deadliest enemy. Morgaine and Urien decide that Elen must not be allowed to reach Arthur. But they reckon without the valiant Geraint, younger brother of the renowned Sir Gawain.He is determined to prove himself worthy of his place at the round table, but when he meets Elen he will find there are things other than honour worth fighting for.

I am always excited to find a new Arthur and was thrilled to pick up this one
And it began in a promising way but then lost momentum and became almost a damp squib.
It repeats itself, meanders, fails to hold attention and in parts is just lame.
I have read plenty of Science Fantasy and don't at all have a problem with the technique of one character being bound up with an animal or mythical being, and this was done magnificently in for example Raymond E Feist's Riftwar Saga.
but the way in which Elen's heart was mechanically transferred into the hawks by evil; enchantress Morgaine, just fell flat.
We were simply unsure where Elen's own will began and where the will of the hawk controlled it. the author was never really clear on this.
I was also never sure who the Great KIng, Little King and Mouse King were and thought the elements of the mouse people, mice with human Zettel's writing style is not bad at all, and she has quite a way with words. but the plot was repetitive, the characterization quite poor and it failed to hold my attention.
