Product Description

528 A.D. Cymru (Wales)

Melangell is a Lifebringer, a dragon-maiden learning to protect one of the land’s most ancient mysteries, y Ddraig. She expects to pass her years as have a score of teachers before her—sequestered, safeguarding an egg that barely moves from year to year, never using the deadly skills she’s been taught in secret. But the King’s relentless pursuit of this most sought after relic throws her into the middle of war and, adept or not, Melangell enters captivity with the egg to defend the sleeping dragonling within.

Her abductor is Cai ap Cynyr—fierce warrior, loyal brother and sword-arm to the King. He’s been hunting all of Cymry for the treasures Artwr demands to ensure triumph against the invading Angles. He uses the intrigue of the Lifebringer to master his armsmen, but when he spirits Melangell and the dragon egg further into seclusion, she grows captivated by her captor.

But she is a Lifebringer, sworn only to y Ddraig. And fierce Cai must deliver the dragonling to Artwr to at last drag himself out of his brother’s deep shadow. And all the while the egg readies itself to emerge.

‘Sacrifice’ is the first in a series of three books based around 'y Ddraig' (the Dragon) set in sixth-century Arthurian Wales, featuring characters based on Welsh myth and history.

I really enjoyed reading this mystical and magical tale. I was caught up in the dragon maiden, Melangell's journey, suffering with her and celebrating with her. I simply loved the warrior Cai and his tortured path in this story. The characters were strong and heroic and I felt drawn in to the ancient Welsh countryside as I travelled the journey with them. I'm excited to see where the author leads them in the next book in this series.

Grendolyn Beynon creates a fantasy world based on the Welsh sagas. She could have chosen those in which sweet-voiced young men sing to dainty maidens. She didn’t. Her choice was for a brutal sort of man and women who could take him on. The result is a fast-moving epic that keeps the pages turning.

I loved this book. Beynon's world-building is excellent and takes you right back to the period. It's dark and gritty but an enjoyable read, putting a new twist on old stories (and some that anyone outside of Wales might not be familiar with). Well worth a read.
