The Kingmaking: Book One of the Pendragon's Banner Trilogy - Helen Hollick

... right now we're waiting to see if Vortigern, Uthr's enemy, will attack. The tension is well done.


Usually I'm antsy during longish books. Not so here. I like the epic feel and the attention to detail.


I like Gwenhwyfar's character.  Hollick's Gwen is headstrong and a force to be reckoned with. Raised a tomboy, she's no damsel in distress.  She's intelligent and can hold her own.
