Vengeance was the only burial gift he could bestow.

Fans are saying

As a huge fan of Kim Headlee's work, I highly recommend this short story to give you a taste of her work and suggest the first novel in her series, Dawnflight, as a read to follow this one if you love Arthurian legends and adventure.

Beautiful, violent, and heart-wrenching...two thumbs up!

Reading Dwras map Gwyn's story was like riding a roller coaster (in a good way!). Non-stop action and even a few tears thrown in for good measure. Violent and heart-wrenching from the beginning and has a great, solid ending.

You'll finish it and want more...so go read Dawnflight because it's amazing as well :)

A beautifully written tale of the birth of a warrior.

Author Bio

Kim Headlee

Kim Headlee lives on a farm in southwestern Virginia with her family, cats, goats, Great Pyrenees goat guards, and assorted wildlife. People and creatures come and go, but the cave and the 250-year-old house ruins--the latter having been occupied as recently as the mid-twentieth century--seem to be sticking around for a while yet.

Kim is a Seattle native and a direct descendent of 20th century Russian nobility. Her grandmother was a childhood friend of the doomed Grand Duchess Anastasia, and the romantic yet tragic story of how Lydia escaped Communist Russia with the aid of her American husband will most certainly one day fuel one of Kim's novels. Another novel in the queue will involve her husband's ancestor, the seventh-century proto-Viking king of the Swedish colony in Russia.

For the time being, however, Kim has plenty of work to do in creating her projected 8-book Arthurian series, The Dragon's Dove Chronicles, and publishing other novels under her imprint, Pendragon Cove Press.
