The Widow Queen: The Bold, Book 1 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Elzbieta Cherezinska's The Widow Queen is the epic story of a Polish queen whose life and name were all but forgotten until now.
The bold one, they call her- too bold for most.
To her father, the great duke of Poland, Swietoslawa and her two sisters represent three chances for an alliance. Three marriages on which to build his empire.
But Swietoslawa refuses to be simply a pawn in her father's schemes; she seeks a throne of her own, with no husband by her side.
The gods may grant her wish, but crowns sit heavy, and power is a sword that cuts both ways.

The story is well written and richly imagined. It becomes quite gripping on many occasions as the political overwhelms the personal. Sventoslava and would-be Norwegian king Olav see themselves as destined for each other but so far, it looks unlikely to happen. This is the period when the old gods Woden, Thor, Frey and Loki were being displaced by Christianity and Cherezinska has a terrifically good handle on how this plays out. Eagerly looking forward to the sequel, and what becomes of this woman and her two tamed lynxes. There are helpful genealogical tables of all the royal houses involved.
