The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven


Mirror, mirror, on the lake.  Reveal the path the queen will take.

 About the Book: In this dark fairy tale adaptation of a medieval French legend, Issylte must flee the wicked queen, finding shelter with a fairy witch who teaches her the verdant magic of the forest. Fate leads her to the otherworldly realm of the Lady of the Lake and the Elves of Avalon, where she must choose between her life as a healer or fight to save her ravaged kingdom.

Tristan of Lyonesse is a Knight of the Round Table who must overcome the horrors of his past and defend his king or lose everything. When he becomes a warrior of the Tribe of Dana, a gift of Druidic magic might hold the key he seeks.

 Our Review: lush descriptions and details of the rigors of medieval life abound in this adaptation on an old French tale of love and betrayal and resolution. The author clearly knows the characters and the setting very well—and it shows on every page.

 On a scale of 1-5, The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven deserves a 4.
