Summary

The right cause can topple a kingdom....

Once upon a time, the kingdoms of Wales were rife with magic and conflict—and 18-year-old Mererid 'Mer' is well-acquainted with both. As the last living water diviner, she can manipulate water with magic—a unique elemental power many would kill to possess.

For years, Mer has been running from the prince who bound her into his service—and forced her to kill thousands with her magic. Now, all Mer truly wants is a safe, quiet life, far from power and politics.

But then Mer's old handler—the king's spymaster—returns with a proposition: use her powers to bring down the very prince that abused them both.

Part heist novel, part dark fairy tale and rich with Welsh legends, The Drowned Woods is an ethereal fantasy, perfect for fans of Kristin Cashore and Maria V. Snyder.

A Wonderful Sequel

I loved this sequel!
I purchased on Audio book and ebook sync, listening when my hands were busy and reading when my hands were still. I enjoyed the narrator’s accent and pronunciation of Welsh names and words, I feel it gave the audio reading an immense feeling of authenticity. I found this tale especially easy to get lost in.
More Welsh tales, please!
