'This is the omnibus version of the Lay Lines Trilogy - The Knight by the Pool, The Lady of the Flowers, The Stone of Oakenfast. It follows the story of poet, the Lady Marie de France, and her strange, marvellous and terrifying adventures both in the human world and the Otherworld of enchantment. Marie must cope with political plots, werewolves, shapeshifters of all kinds, Otherworldly rulers of extraordinary powers, and most painful and ambiguous of all, the road to knowledge of her own heart, and passionate love. There is a mixture of real historical figures and fictional characters, magic and realism in the book which makes it a potent spell. Steeped in the atmosphere of the Middle Ages, rich and exciting, erotic and elegant, funny and scary, this is a book that readers seem to love very much, taking you on a journey long ago and far away.'
