Publisher Description

Myth and legend come to life in Dark Age Wales ...
Cold My Heart: Love. Magic. Faith. By the autumn of 537 AD, all who are loyal to King Arthur have retreated to a small parcel of land in north Wales. They are surrounded on all sides, heavily outnumbered, and facing near certain defeat.
But Myrddin and Nell, two of the king's companions, have a secret that neither has ever been able to face: each has seen that on a cold and snowy day in December, Saxon soldiers sent by Modred will ambush and kill King Arthur.
And together, they must decide what they are willing to do, and to sacrifice, to avert that fate.
The Last Pendragon: Rhiann knows that demons walk the night. She has been taught to fear them. But from the moment Cade is dragged before her father's throne, beaten and having lost all of his men to her father's treachery, he stirs something inside her that she has never felt before. When Cade is revealed to be not only Arthur's heir but touched by the sidhe, Rhiann must choose between the life she left behind and the one before her--and how much she is willing to risk to follow her heart.
Cold My Heart and The Last Pendragon are the first books in two different series set in Dark Age Wales!

Legends of Dark Age Wales: Cold My Heart/The Last Pendragon

These are two intriguing fantasy tales with roots firmly embedded in historical figures. In the same way Stephen Lawhead rejiggered the Robin Hood mythos by placing it in Wales, so Sarah Woodbury’s “Lion of Wales” books take new angle on the King Arthur legend with the Welsh setting of these tales. In this former series, her storytelling method combines flash-forward, prescient dreams with medieval knighthood and chivalry.

The books in the latter “Last Pendragon” series take on more of a fantasy vibe, with pagan gods, demons, sidhe and the like interwoven with Christian imagery. Hers is an interesting take, with the Christian faith playing a bigger part in “Lion of Wales”, while also being a significant player in “Last Pendragon”. In their final conception, neither series is primarily about the interaction of Christianity and the pagan religions prevalent among the Britons during this time period, but the interplay is nonetheless fascinating.

Normally, a reading which takes me this long to read was either 1) exceedingly long and/or 2) tedious and difficult to muddle through. Neither was the case for these books. I found it engaging and easy-to-read; on my digital Apple Books reader; I just got sidetracked and didn’t get back to it for quite a while.

If one is a sucker for historical fiction (as am I), medieval tales and the like with just a taste of romantic intrigue mixed in, one will enjoy these tales.
