Set in medieval Wales, Mark Noce’s historical romantic Queen Branwen series combines myths and legends in this Dark Ages epic about a monarch determined to keep the Welsh kingdoms united while battling enemies within and without who will stop at nothing to topple her reign.
“A fast-paced read that has a wonderfully visual style and some memorable characters. Mark Noce combines Welsh history with a touch of folkloric magic. Lady Branwen is a strong and engaging narrator and the turbulent setting of early medieval Wales makes a fine backdrop for an action-packed story.”—Juliet Marillier, bestselling author of Daughter of the Forest (on Between Two Fires)
