AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Imprisoned in Sorrowgate Tower, Rhiannon awaits trial for murder and treason, while her winged horse, Blackthorn, flies forlornly over Lucescere, the Shining City, her bond of loyalty to Rhiannon keeping her near. Rhiannon is haunted by the malevolent ghost of a dead queen, hungry to live again - and she is not the only one having prophetic nightmares. But with the court filled with intrigue as the midsummer wedding of betrothed royal cousins Donncan MacCuinn and Bronwen approaches, there is no one to listen to the dreams of a few. Then the royal family is torn apart by murder and the mysterious disappearance of the heir to the throne, and it is discovered that Rhiannon has escaped on the back of her flying horse. -- Libraries Australia
