It’s always exciting when a writer friend has news about her writing, and today, I get to announce the release date of Suzannah Rowntree’s debut novel, Pendragon’s Heir.
I met Suzannah when I was living in New Zealand. She was visiting from “across the ditch” (Australia). When I first met her, we fell into easy conversation about genealogy and the English Civil War, of all things. There we were, an Australian and American in New Zealand, talking animatedly about history and our English roots.
So, it’s no surprise that Suzannah has a passion for the “olden days” which is displayed in Pendragon’s Heir. Here’s a bit of what we may expect from the book:
Blanche Pendragon enjoys her undemanding life as the ward of an eccentric nobleman in 1900 England. It’s been years since she even wondered what happened to her long lost parents, but then a gift on the night of her eighteenth birthday reveals a heritage more dangerous and awe-inspiring than she ever dreamed of–or wanted. Soon Blanche is flung into a world of wayfaring immortals, daring knights, and deadly combats, with a murderous witch-queen on her trail and the future of a kingdom at stake. As the legendary King Arthur Pendragon and his warriors face enemies without and treachery within, Blanche discovers a secret that could destroy the whole realm of Logres. Even if the kingdom could be saved, is she the one to do it? Or is someone else the Pendragon’s Heir?
