  • The First Lost Tale of Mercia: Golde the Mother on Sep. 04, 2011

    Jayden Woods thrusts the reader right into the action from the very start. I loved the gritty portrayal of Anglo-Saxon life and politics. This first Lost Tale of Mercia leaves you wanting to read more, and I think that's a testament to the strong characters that Jayden creates from the very beginning of the story, with lots of strong dialogue used to build the conflict between them. Like all good historical fiction this story also inspires curiosity into the historical setting itself.

    I loved this story of how an Anglo-Saxon farmer puts his life back together again after a Viking raid. The description of nature and the village as well as what happened to him are very evocative. You get a real sense of the time and also of the type of people and their concerns, and what their hopes are for the future. I recommend this for anyone who loves historical fiction.

    A charming fantasy, based I think on Celtic myth. Don't expect sword and sorcery, but instead be seduced by the atmosphere of the setting and the depth of the characters who are rich in subtle and natural magic that no longer inhabits our world. I loved the way that this tale played with my expectations in particular. I doubt that you'll come across many dragons like the one in this story.
