Gyanhumara “Gyan” nic Hymar is a Caledonian chieftainess by birth, a warrior and leader of warriors by training, and she is betrothed to Urien map Dumarec, a son of her clan’s deadliest enemy, by right of Arthur the Pendragon’s conquest of her people. For the sake of peace, Gyan is willing to sacrifice everything...perhaps even her very life, if her foreboding about Urien proves true. Arthur map Uther is the bastard son of two worlds, Roman by his father and Brytoni by his mother. Denied hereditary rulership by the elders of Chieftainess Ygraine’s clan, Arthur has followed Uther’s path to become Dux Britanniarum, the Pendragon: supreme commander of the northern Brytoni army. The Caledonians, Scots, Saxons, and Angles keep him too busy to dwell upon his loneliness...most of the time.
I love many genres. I know you all already think that I am crazy BUT like I said I review many genres. I just like books *laughing*
With that said I liked the book, I can not say I was enthralled but it was enjoyable. Gyan is a Cheiftiness for her tribe, she's to marry Urien. Going into this book I really really expected it to be one way and it went a completely different way. IS that good you ask? Yeah I believe it is.
Alright back on task, so Gyan is to marry Urien but she is like eehhh you know being betrothed to someone your not all that fond of might do that to you. On her way to meet up with Urien she meets Author, they are soulmates. So now you ask how the hell does that work? yeah well you have to read it to find out.
Let me just say I liked the fact that Gyan is a warrior, she kicks arse.
In all I have to say I enjoyed the book. I know this genre is not for all people.

About the author:
Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, and assorted wildlife. People & creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins — the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-20th century — seem to be sticking around for a while yet.
Kim is a Seattle native (when she used to live in the Metro DC area, she loved telling people she was from “the other Washington”) and a direct descendent of 20th century Russian nobility. Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how Lydia escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim’s novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband’s ancestor, the 7th-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.
For the time being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon’s Dove Chronicles. She also writes other romantic historical fiction under the pseudonym “Kimberly Iverson.”
