Summary
"The Lost Queen tells the story of Languoreth, Queen of Cadzow, who lived in sixth century Scotland and came of age at a time when invading Anglo-Saxon forces and the rise of Christianity threatened to change her way of life forever. Together with her twin brother Lailoken, destined to be a Wisdom Keeper and eventually known to history as Merlin, she is catapulted into a world of danger and violence. War brings the warriors of Emrys, the Dragon Warrior or Pen Dragon, to their door, and among them is Maelgwn. He and Languoreth spark a passionate connection, forged by a magical spell, but Languoreth is promised in marriage to Lord Rhydderch, son of the High King Tutgual who is sympathetic to the Christian followers of a charismatic monk named Mungo. As Rhydderch's wife, it will be Languoreth's duty to fight for the preservation of the Old Way, her kingdom, and all she holds dear. Rebellious, intelligent, passionate, and brave, Languoreth is an unforgettable heroine whose story of conflicted loves and survival is set against a cinematic backdrop of ancient Scotland and its myths and magic which spring from the beauty of the natural world. The Lost Queen brings this remarkable woman to life, rescuing her from vanishing history, and reclaiming her place in some of the most enduring legends of all time"--
