Overview

The Young Knight of Selgovae is set historically in old Brittany, Francia, Danmork and Rus. In the days of King Arthur, Sir Alun is enjoying life at court and a budding romance in the Palace of L hon, when Brittany is invaded by Clovis I of Francia, a brutal boy-king. What begins as a simple scouting mission for Sir Alun, entangles the young knight in international intrigue, courtly love affairs, war, and harrowing encounters with the supernatural. This work bucks the trend of young adult literature by providing readers with a hero that isn't blessed with superpowers, isn't some sort of "chosen one," and isn't even the sole center of attention, for its three heroines are fully developed in the story line. Through Sir Alun, Princess Jariya, Countess Thela, and Aisha, a Venetian innkeeper's daughter, young audiences will be re-introduced to the sort of complex, imperfect characters more often seen in classical literature, who struggle with self-confidence, pay the price for their brash mistakes, experience grand romantic adventures and surprisingly overcome nearly insurmountable odds. Rather than characters the audiences can fantasize about or "roleplay," these are true-to-life individuals the readers can relate to and emulate.As one reader said, "I loved The Young Knight of Selgovae. It was a perfect mix of adventure and romance. It was hard to put the book down, because I never knew which way the story was going to go. It is a beautiful story, written to perfection "
