SYNOPSIS: A dead king, a queen who is more than she seems, and a witch who uses the dark arts to entrap her.
Queen, widow, beggar – Lady Caitlyn is all three, and now she can add murderer to the list.
When death and treachery propel her south to Normandy, to seek sanctuary with the exiled Prince Alfred, visions of a woman with ancient eyes travel with her.
Herleva is a woman filled with ambition and greed. A woman who intends to be more than a commoner. A woman who gets what she wants by whatever means possible, even if she has to practice the dark arts to achieve her goals.
A woman who is a witch.
Caitlyn finds herself caught up in a magic which changes her very being. A magic which produces a king to change the lives of every man, woman, and child in England.

REVIEW: This is the first book of the Caitlyn series--and I look forward to reading the rest of it! The first paragraph is graphic and draws you directly into the story:
"My husband lay at my feet, in three bloody pieces, his torso severed from left shoulder to right hip. The third piece was his head."

There were several plot twists in this story that I didn't see coming. What happens to Caitlyn because of Herleva was the biggest one, and was a little hard to swallow at first, but the writer does a great job with the character both before and after that, and I found myself continuing to enjoy the story.

While the book is primarily fantasy, it is full of history and as much fact as can be known about this ancient time. The writer has done a wonderful job of marrying the two into this amazing story.

RATING: Four stars
Elizabeth Davies is a paranormal author, whose books have a romantic flavor with more than a hint of suspense. And death. There's usually death...
