Description

It is the year 1400, and Wales is on the brink of a bloody revolt. At a market fair on the banks of the River Dee - a gathering of peasants, bards, prophets, heretics, and soldiers - a mad rebel priest and his beautiful companion are condemned to be burned at the stake. To their rescue rides the unlikely figure of Rhisiart, a young Oxford scholar whose fate will be entangled with that of Owen Glendower, the last true Prince of Wales - a man called, at times against his will, to fulfill the prophesied role of national redeemer. Vivid in its evocation of a period shrouded by myth, Owen Glendower tells a story of war, love, and magic.show more
