Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 044022909X, Mass Market Paperback)Upon the death of her father, 15-year-old Ilena realizes that if she is ever to know her true identity, she'll have to solve the mystery herself. Her father, on his deathbed, gives her a clue: "Go to Dun Alyn. Find Ryamen." Grimly determined, Ilena sets out on a dangerous journey through Britain, encountering a handsome liege to the legendary King Arthur, as well as fierce warriors from the north, a grieving king, a healer, a malevolent Druid, and a loyal, resourceful dwarf. She also meets her startling destiny--as heir to the throne of Dun Alyn.
In Patricia Malone's first novel for young adults, a strong, likable heroine emerges. Ilena is both warrior and lady, facing grownup burdens with a girl's tender ingenuousness. Sixth-century Scotland, with its tribal warfare, lavish banquets, and escalating religious conflict between Christians and Druids, is thoughtfully depicted; Ilena's world will be fascinating to young fans of Arthurian adventure stories.
