About the Book

A Welsh warrior-in-training can control the minds of animals. His sister can see the future in a drop of water. Now Hyw and Catrin must stretch their gifts to stand between their people and the invading English army. Hyw uses his gift to spy on the English for the Prince of Wales, while Catrin tries to prevent the disasters in her visions. Can the gifts be trusted—or will their world shatter around them? This medieval fantasy combines magic, mythology, and forgotten legends with the historical realities of 1282 Wales. Book 1 in the Last of the Gifted series.
