A warrior-in-training can control the minds of animals. His sister can see the
future in a drop of water. Now they are all that stand between their people and
the invading English army. Hyw’s gift—seeing through the eyes of birds and
animals—could win him a place in the Prince of Wales’ bodyguard. But ambush and
murder force Hyw to stretch his gift in unexpected ways. When the prince tries
to use Hyw to spy on the invading English, they clash with old friends and
ruthless enemies. Hyw’s sister Catrin sees visions of death and disaster. The
young nobleman she’s pledged to marry thinks his love endangers her gift. But
they must work together to prevent the genocide she 
foresees. Can the gifts be
trusted? Or will their world shatter around them?

A medieval fantasy that
combines magic, mythology, and historical legends with the realities of Wales
in 1282.
