Best New Fantasy Novel: High King of Britain by Tracy Cooper-Posey

Best New Fantasy Novel: High King of Britain by Tracy Cooper-Posey

Welcome to my introduction to the best new fantasy novel (in my opinion, lol) High King of Britain, by Tracy Cooper-Posey.

If you love anything related to King Arthur, and historical romances, then you will fall in love with this novel as much as I have. The Once and Future Hearts fantasy series has been one of my favorites for a while now, so I am glad to have finally received the news about this newest installation.

High King of Britain is available on Amazon now

Title: High King of Britain
Author: Tracy Cooper-Posey
Series: (Once and Future Hearts #5)
Publication date: May 30th, 2019
Genres: Fantasy, Historical, Romance

All she wants is to fight for Arthur and Britain.

 

Lady Mair is a daughter of Corneus—the house of perfect warriors—and wants only to serve Arthur, War Duke of Britain, as her brothers Lucan and Bedivere do. Yet King Alun of Brocéliande wants to make her his queen, which would mean leaving Britain and Arthur’s court.

Alun’s younger brother and Mair’s best friend, Rawn, sees things as Mair does—nothing is more important than being the best warriors they can be.

Only Mair is entangled in the politics of the kings and leaders surrounding Arthur, just as his army prepares to fight two major battles in one summer, and people wonder when Arthur will become High King of Britain.

Plus, Rawn is hiding secrets of his own, that run counter to Mair’s desperate wish to be free to fight for Britain.

 

 

EXCERPT:

After washing and exchanging her bloody war gear for clean leather, Mair ducked under the tent flap and went in search of wine, her mind calm, her thoughts peaceful. The battle had been won. It was time to celebrate.

Somewhere nearby, there would be a campfire with like-minded warriors sitting around it, with wineskins and cups. A place would be made for her.

“Lady Mair.” The call came from her left.

Mair halted to look. The man who came toward her was black of hair, with a sharp jaw. He looked familiar. Mair took in his wide shoulders, and the strong wrists. He had washed and changed just as she had, so there were no house markings on his clothes or cloak to tell her who he was.

She glanced at his face once more as he stopped before her. He had thick dark brows over very blue eyes…and then she knew why he seemed familiar to him. “Arawn Uther,” she said. “You have joined Arthur’s army now?”

“My brother sent me, as he could not be spared himself,” Arawn Uther said. “Alun remains in Lesser Britain to hold the eastern borders with Hoel.” He reached inside his over tunic, underneath the cloak. “I have a letter for you, from Alun.”

The mention of a letter should have filled her with delight. Instead, Mair felt a twisting and tightening in her belly. “He did not send it by messenger?”

“Not this letter,” Arawn Uther held the sealed roll toward her.

The very slight emphasis made her hesitate as she reached for the roll. “Why this letter? You know what is in it, don’t you?”

Arawn Uther didn’t shift his stance. His expression did not change. Yet Mair could feel the wave of sadness that swept him. His blue eyes glittered. “My mother…Ilsa…” His throat worked.

Mair sighed. “Oh, Arawn… I’m so sorry.”

He nodded. Then he cleared his throat. “As you can imagine, my mother’s passing changes things.”

He did not finish the thought, but he did not need to. Mair could finish it all by herself. It changes things between you and Alun.

Alun had been pressing for a solid arrangement between them for years, via messengers and couriers, and letters like this one. Now, with his mother’s passing, he would reasonably expect to secure the next generation.

Mair looked at the roll hanging forgotten in Arawn’s hand. She didn’t want to read it. Once she read Alun’s entreaty that she join him in Brocéliande, she would be forced to make a decision.

Mair gripped Arawn’s arm. “It is not the time to tax our minds with such matters,” she said firmly. “We have clawed victory from this day. I was about to find some wine and I insist you come and drink it with me.”

“But…”

She shook her head. “No. You fought today as I did. You now get to enjoy the warrior’s rights. Drink and…perhaps we can find you a willing, warm woman, to take that care from your eyes.”

Arawn rolled his eyes. “Really, Lady Mair–”

“Mair,” she said firmly.

“Rawn,” he replied, just as firmly. He narrowed his eyes and stuffed the letter back inside his tunic. “Where is this wine you speak of?”

This Week in Books # 3 – A Sunday Blog Post

This Week in Books # 3 – A Sunday Blog Post

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance for participants to share their blog’s news about the past week, reading recaps, new hauls, and a lot of other fun stuff.

Hi there! Hope you all had a wonderful and productive week! After a few weeks of pause since my last Sunday Post, I decided that I enjoyed participating too much, to let go of this link up, so I am back at it again – and for the foreseeable future, I hope.

What is happening in my life:

I am in the middle of rebranding one of my other websites, so it has been busy while navigating around doctor’s appointments and my husband’s business (he owns a trucking company), which led to not much time reading. However, that did not stop me from picking up more books – because, well, one can never have too many books on a TBR list, now can they, lol. I know it is a problem that I have, but I can always use the excuse, that I am a book blogger for any of those moments when someone questions my book buying behavior.

If you want to know what else I do, besides book blogging, then you can read my weekly action and accountability recap on my Wealthy Affiliate blog, where I also write about my struggle with trying to build a business with chronic illnesses. 

 

This past week on this blog:

  • Healthy Habits Suck by Dayna Lee-Baggley (release date July 1st, 2019)

 

Next week’s happenin’:

My daughter and I are trying to work through the whole Low Fodmap she is on, for her IBS, and that means a lot of reading, and a lot of working through the information that her dietician has sent us. That and all of her other doctor’s appointments keep us busy. Do you have a special diet that you have to navigate through your life with?

Books I added to my “to read list”

The Witch’s Shield: Protection Magick and Psychic Self-Defense by Christopher Penczak

my TBR list is too long as it is, so I am not trying to add any more books to it, this week, if I can help it – most of the time, I can not help it, lol. It is a compulsion, I know. However, I am in the middle of creating a more formal extensive list of those books I really want to read, and am planning on publishing it here. Maybe that will motivate me to work through them, before adding any more.

Quick Week Recap:

I got really excited about the upcoming Avengers movie when the trailer dropped a few days ago! I am a Marvel fan, for the most part, however, I have to admit, I enjoy a DC show or movie every now and then. Which of those two do you prefer? If you have not seen the trailer, check it out!

.

This week’s favorite quote:

This is more a poem than a quote, but it is still quite inspiring:

Don’t Quit! 

When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
-It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit.
