Phew -- this was a really dense historical series. I struggled between 3 or 4 stars. I was looking forward to this because while this is one of my favorite historical periods, what is written in historical fiction is typically from the English side of the story rather than the Welsh side and I wanted to know more about the Welsh side. This was obviously very well researched and Edith Pargeter did a really good job with the Samson, the narrator. The primary characters of Llewellyn and David ap Gruffyd I had a little more trouble with and even some of the history just got a little too complex for my feeble brain. I found my mind wandering frequently and having to go back and re-read sections (no mean feat on a Kindle 1).

I may go back and re-read this another time when I'm less distracted than I was when reading it this time.
