The Y Dawnus are known as the Gifted. These irreplaceable members of High King Arthur’s early medieval society live in a mysterious land in 500 A.D. The Dreamers, the Dewin, the Druids, and the Bards, these chosen ones are his talented pillars. Without them his empire cannot survive. When they are taken captive by the Coranians in a battle for Kymru, the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
In this Fourth Book of the Dreamer’s Cycle, cruel deprivation and a full-scale conflict bring the Y Dawnus to the brink of annihilation. Confronting his mortal enemy, Havgan the Warleader, Arthur and his forces must fight a formidable opponent backed by menacing powers that threaten to end their magical, elite kingdom.
Loyal to King Arthur, Gwydion, the Dreamer of Kymru, must contemplate the loss of Rhiannon, former heir to the Ardewin. She alone is the love of his soul. If he fails, he will never see her again. A daring escapade against the Coranians threatens to separate them forever.
In a treacherous realm where captives are collared and sacrificed, where ruthless territorial boundaries are drawn and enforced, where death by poisoning and torture are the norm, the highest morals are at stake in love and in hate. Only the strongest survive in the pursuit of freedom. And only the deepest passion will drive away the evil that lurks in a mystical land of fragile kingdoms, powerful warleaders, and ancient magic.
