I think I would have liked this book better if I'd read it instead of listened to the audio version. The narrator of the audio version was just so over the top in her dramatic reading that it often distracted from the story. Several times I caught myself distracted by the audio and wishing that I had a hardcopy of the book in hand.

It's a fairly standard historical fiction account of mid 15th century struggles for the English throne with a Celtic myth sprinkled throughout for good measure.
