Brian Young's 'The Sullen Queen' is an enjoyable tale rich with mythic forms, setting and action. The main character, young Prince Rhun ap Maelgwn, is well developed and suited to the role of the hero setting out on the journey that will test him to the core. The pace is active and the plot often surprising making sure the reader is entertained and engaged. At times, the writing takes on an almost epic and lyrical cadence. As the last line is read and this volume concludes, there is a strong sense that one has returned from sitting at the feet of an ancient storyteller who shared some long forgotten saga. Lovers of fantasy, of action, and all Celtophiles will enjoy this work and eagerly look forward to the next installment.
Available in both print and Kindle versions.
