LAST OF THE GIFTED BY MARIE POWELL

“An evocative epic laced with myth and fact… The Last of the Gifted is a classic.” – Ottawa Review of Books

Two siblings pledge their magic to protect their people from the invading English, with the help of the last true Prince of Walesafter his murder.

Welsh warrior-in-training Hyw can control the minds of birds and animals.

His sister Catrin can see the future in a drop of water.

When the last true Prince of Wales is slain, Hyw’s gift allows him to meld with the prince’s spirit. Now they must unite their abilities to help their people—and the prince’s traitorous brother—escape Longshanks’ ruthless army.

This award-winning medieval fantasy combines magic, mythology, and forgotten legends with the historical realities of 13th Century Wales.
