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?”

Book Review: Mexislang by Raul Jimenez – A Delightful Insight Into Mexican Slang And Culture

Book Review: Mexislang by Raul Jimenez – A Delightful Insight Into Mexican Slang And Culture

Book Details:

Title: Mexislang
Author: Raul Jimenez
Publication Date: January 15th, 2018
Genre: Education, Culture

My thoughts:

What an interesting, unique insight into Mexican slang! I just started learning Spanish, so I thought Mexislang would be an interesting addition to my studies, and I was not wrong. While my Spanish teacher would probably not approve, I enjoyed the detailed insights into origins of the individual expressions the Author showcased. Entertaining and educational, this book made me frown at times, and chuckle at others, and with that brought this language more to life than any ordinary textbook could do.

Book Rating:

5 out of 5 Stars

Summary:

I have been teaching Mexican Spanish online for more than 2 years, and while talking to my students, I’ve noticed how interested they were in learning “mexislang.”
They asked me about it all the time, and it started to fascinate me as well. I realized how slang didn’t follow any rules and was constantly changing, day by day.
I created a blog – mexislang.com – where I started posting entries for my students, to better explain them how slang words were used and why.
These blog posts have evolved into this book.
Here, I gather the most important phrases and words of mexislang and explain their history and usage, including examples.
You will find this manual useful if…
•you want to learn Spanish from Mexico;
•you are going to travel to Mexico;
•you want to understand Mexican culture better;
•you like learning new languages;
•you want to communicate better with Mexican people;
•you want to learn the most recent Mexican slang (and internet slang), from 2018;
•You want to learn slang from a real Mexican tutor who has taught Spanish to people from all around the world.
Mexico is the 8th most visited country in the world, and #1 in Latin America, so this is a book that can be used by adventurers, businessmen, spring breakers, and any average joe who wants to make bonds, communicate, and establish good relationships with Mexican people.
