'Hear, O Son of Albion: Blood is born of blood. Flesh is born of flesh. But the spirit is born of Spirit, and with Spirit evermore remains. Before Albion is One, the Hero Feat must be performed and Silver Hand must reign.' The great king, Meldryn Mawr, is dead and his kingdom lies in ruins. Treachery and brutality stalk the land. Prince Meldron, prompted by the cunning and grapsing Siawn Hy, now claims the throne. But Tegid the bard holds the kingship - and his choice falls on another. The Day of Strife begins. Herein lie passion and power, heartbreak and hope - the fate of Albion and the destiny of the long-awaited champion: Silver Hand. 'To set foot in Albion is to enter a rich world of fantasy, rooted in Celtic mythology. An astonishingly imaginative story sequence' - Books Magazine 'An epic struggle between Light and Darkness - well paced, exciting and very well researched' - Forbidden Planet
