Ooo, book birthdays! Always an exciting time for an author, and for me, this one is especially exciting as I saw an early draft of this book. Plus, Rose is a good friend, and so that makes this book birthday doubly-special!
The synopsis: Falling in love is the ultimate magic. For Gwendydd, a young woman in 5th century Wales, it seems an unobtainable fantasy. She dreads the day her chieftain grandfather will marry her off to increase his allies among the warring tribes of Britain. When she meets the mysterious and handsome druid apprentice Myrddin, Gwendydd realizes just how difficult falling in love can be. The ire of her disapproving grandfather is not her only obstacle. Myrddin’s clairvoyant visions of a king who will unify the battling tribes and bring peace to the land become a dangerous obsession that threatens to obliterate their union. Can Gwendydd support her beloved, the man destined to become the world’s most powerful enchanter, King Arthur’s legendary Merlyn? Or will her devotion destroy her and everything she holds dear?
And, do check out the trailer!
Happy book-birthday, Rose, and welcome to the world, MERLYN’S RAVEN!
