From history shrouded in myths, emerges a family of immortal Celtic Ladies, who roam the medieval world in search of salvation from a curse… but if the Church ever suspects what they really are, they will be hunted, tortured, and burned at the stake.
PRINCESS OF BRETAGNE
Curse of the Lost Isle Book One
by Vijaya Schartz
806 AD – Alba (Ancient Scotland) As the Vikings raid the coast of Alba, Pressine of Bretagne sets out to seduce King Elinas of Dumfries, chosen by the Goddess to unite the tribes against the foreign invader. Elinas, still mourning his departed queen, has no intention to remarry. Head strong and independent, Pressine does not expect to fall for the very attractive, wise and noble ruler… Furthermore, her Pagan nature clashes with the religious fanaticism of the king’s Christian heir, who suspects her unholy ancestry and will stop at nothing to get rid of her.
“If you like your medieval romances spiced with a little sword and sorcery, you’ll love Vijaya Schartz’s Princess of Bretagne. Set in the dark ages as Christianity spreads across Europe in conflict with the old ways and Vikings raid the coasts, the book is in ways reminiscent of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon with its Lost Isle and women of mystery and power. Well written and factual, the book weaves history with fantasy and magic into a story that I could not put down. Schartz’s characters are well drawn and complex, a splendid cast of heroes and villains. And it ends on a note of uncertainty that had me eagerly awaiting its continuation in the next in the series.” 5-stars on amazon.
