Before there was a Winter King, there was a Summer Queen—Gwendolyn of Cornwall, a warrior princess who raised an army to unite a nation.
Said to be a changeling child left to the King and Queen of Cornwall, Gwendolyn is "blessed" at her cradle by three Fae gifts: a prophecy for her future, a gift of "Reflection," and a golden mane—literally, every lock of her hair will turn to gold, provided it is cut by her one true love. But no one understands more than Gwendolyn that her blessings are really curses.
Any man who gazes upon her face will see his own heart reflected in Gwendolyn's countenance, and depending on his nature, she is the loveliest woman in the land… or the most hideous. It's a cruel jest of the capricious Fae, for unless a man's heart is true, Gwendolyn is destined to be coveted for her crown, but despised for her face...
To make matters worse, her ailing father is desperate for an alliance with Brutus of Loegria. Offered to Brutus's ambitious son, Locrinus, Gwendolyn's heart is tempted by a mysterious half-blood Fae whom she can never wed if she is to fulfill her crib side prophecy.
If you love British lore and longed to dive headlong into its beginnings…
If you hoped to meet the "tribe of the gods" who left their mark upon the British Isles…
If you're ready to embark on a magical journey into the dawn of Britain…
Part 1 of an exciting, new fantasy series.

"A breathtaking true tale with a touch of Celtic magic, brought to life by a soul-stirring storyteller." — New York Times Bestselling Author Glynnis Campbell
"The Cornish Princess is not simply a romantic fantasy. There is nothing simple about it. The characters are complex and do not divulge their thoughts or purpose easily. Crosby has created a balanced, multifaceted genre, one where history's battle cry is tangible while fingers of fable and fantasy pull and tug the unwary." — Whiskey & Wit Book Reviews
"Exquisite, lyrical, powerful, and haunting, The Cornish Princess is a heroine for the ages. Gwendolyn of Cornwall's epic journey from the Golden Child of Prophecy to that of a warrior and defender of her people will remain in your heart long after you finish the last page." — Kimberly Cates, USA Today Bestselling Author

Great start to a new trilogy
4 1/2 stars! What a great start to a new trilogy by Tanya Ann Crosby. I really loved all the lore included in this story of a real historical character. The world building and intrigue, along with a little fantasy thrown in was very well done. I’m really looking forward to the next book to learn more of how Gwendolyn, The Cornish Princess, fulfills the Goldenchild Prophecy.
Loved Gwendolyn’s story
Thank you Miss Tanya for another great adventure. I couldn’t put the book down and read it in two days and can’t wait for the story to continue. I have already pre-ordered the continuation with the Queen’s Huntsman and am looking forward to escaping to Gwendolyn’s world once again. A Princesses life is never what we think it is……
An excellent way to start a series
Tanya Anne Crosby’s “The Cornish Princess” The Goldenchild Prophecy Series Book 1 is phenomenal!
Wow! What away to start a new series! This is an epic, exquisite and breathtaking tale of Gwendolyn of Cornwall, the Golden Child of Prophecy and her courageous journey to defend her people.
I didn’t know whether to savor or devour this book so I did both. I couldn’t put it down until the last word was written. I was lost in this magnificent and magical world the author has created. I was entranced from the start and caught up in the her magical spell.
Thank you so much Ms. Crosby for this delightful treat! I can’t wait for the rest of the story.
