“No disguise could cloak her beauty and therein was unspeakable danger.”

Princess Vivien's idyllic life is shattered when Saxons invade her sire’s kingdom. So long had the Selgovaeans enjoyed peace they are ill prepared and are quickly conquered by the barbarians, her father slain. Alone, Vivien is forced to flee to the hidden sanctuary of The Mountain. Her journey is extremely perilous as the Saxons search out every road and trail, seeking to capture the princess and obtain a vital secret that she possesses. To evade her enemies, she must rely on wit, cunning and the help of the enigmatic sage, the Immortal Hawk.

Destined for a purpose far greater than she can imagine, Vivien is empowered to establish a realm of unearthly majesty, where warriors are secretly trained as skilled and chivalrous knights. The sage, known by his foes as the Magician, foretells of the rise of young Arthur, a resistance fighter who will raise an army of knights, defeat the invaders and be crowned High King of Britannia. Yet these prophecies are dependent on Vivien, her men-of-war, the secret she guards with her life, and above all else, the inspiration of her love.

The Princess of Selgovae and the High King is a thrilling tale of adventure, magic, romance and destiny, set against the backdrop of ancient Britain. Fans of epic fantasy and historical fiction will be swept away by this tale of a young princess who risks everything to save her kingdom and fulfill her destiny.
