Présentation de l'éditeur

A SONG OF AWAKENING by Roby James is a monumental, richly romantic historical with a subtle touch of fantasy. Born into the 13th century's turmoil and warfare, Briana of Flint is a lady of legend. Myrrdin, the greatest bard in Wales, prophesied at her birth that she would "rise from fetters and bring freedom with her." In the struggle of the Welsh against the ruthless King Edward I of England, Briana loses almost everything she loves—her family, her home, and her liberty. But three extraordinary men offer her ways to discover the ultimate, unanticipated truth of Myrrdin's prophecy. Ine, a lesser bard, has no idea why he has been chosen to inherit the Welsh bardic tradition... Rees, the King's nephew, experiences a near death on Crusade, an event that transforms him more than anyone guesses... Owen Glyn, the last of the Welsh rebels, gathers to himself in the fastness of Snowdonia all that remains of Prince Llewelyn's dream of freedom for Wales... Ranging from the deep valleys and high mountains of Wales to the English court at Windsor and Westminster, with stops in France and the Holy Land, this intricate story of music, swordplay, loss, and redemption follows exceptional men and women trying to live in an age with values different from their own—an age of awakening. "Roby James' historical novel A Song of Awakening, set in the reign of Edward I Plantagenet, ranges over the known world from the Holy Land to the North, but, in the end, returns to England, Wales and, in particularly, Flint Castle, to which the child Briana is heiress. Its native rock is strong beneath her feet and dear to her heart. She also has fire in her blood, a spine of steel, and carries the burden of bardic prophecy. She needs all three of these things to fight for her land's and her people's survival during the wars between England and Wales. Although a canny Edward Longshanks seeks to use her as a pawn, she is very much her own woman. She becomes a fit adversary for the half-Norman Crusader whom the king also advances on a bloodstained chessboard of castles, crowns and hearts. A Song of Awakening is a worthy successor to Edith Pargeter's trilogy set over 100 years earlier: The Heaven Tree, The Green Branch and The Scarlet Seed." —Susan Shwartz, Author of Shards of Empire and Cross and Crescent, Nebula, Hugo and World Fantasy nominee "Roby James spins a web that draws us deeply into her mythic Celtic world, described in her latest novel, A Song of Awakening. A trio of male bards opens the door to this post-Arthurian universe, but it is the memorable female characters who keep the reader locked inside. Duty, honor, war, love, death: each makes its appearance, and its mark, but the deepest search is the one that leads toward healing, both personal and political." —Paula Butturini, Author of Keeping the Feast "Set against the backdrop of the 13th-century Welsh battle for independence from English domination, this masterly romantic fantasy entwines legend, music and love with the despotic whims of King Edward of England. Along with the central story are wonderful subplots, characters and intrigues that make A SONG OF AWAKENING a satisfying read. I couldn't put it down till I finished it." —Miriam Lippel Blum, author of "Recollection of the Heart" in JEWISH VALUES IN HEALTH AND MEDICINE "Roby James writes with passion and intelligence." —Jack McDevitt, Nebula Award Winner "Look out, Robert Jordan!" —Barnes & Noble Booksellers Newsletter --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.

Biographie de l'auteur

Roby James started reading when she was four, writing when she was nine, and always got "talks too much" as a comment on her report cards. She fell in love with science fiction years before the field become respectable and with her husband about eight months before he became respectable. She has been running the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon since 1975 (before rafting became fashionable); her wilderness experiences taught her that life does exist without technology. That was a valuable lesson, because right after she got her M.B.A., she ditched corporate America, where employers thought she should think the way they did just because they were paying her. She is grateful that science fiction, white-water rafting, self-employment, minimalism, and monogamy have all reached the mainstream now, because she's always wanted to be part of the gang.
