Three Bloody Pieces
by Elizabeth Davies
A dead king, a queen who is more than she seems, and a witch who uses the dark arts to entrap her.
Queen, widow, beggar – Lady Caitlyn is all three, and now she can add murderer to the list.
When death and treachery propel her south to Normandy, to seek sanctuary with the exiled Prince Alfred, visions of a woman with ancient eyes travel with her.
Herleva is a woman filled with ambition and greed. A woman who intends to be more than a commoner. A woman who gets what she wants by whatever means possible, even if she has to practice the dark arts to achieve her goals.
A woman who is a witch.
Caitlyn finds herself caught up in a magic which changes her very being. A magic which produces a king to change the lives of every man, woman, and child in England.
Wow! The thrills and adventures start from the very first words in this historical/paranormal read! Caitlyn has just lost her husband in a violent battle. You would think this would be the worst to happen to her, but you would be very wrong! This is only the beginning for her.
I can’t really write too much about the plot as I don’t want to ruin anything. Caitlyn is a strong woman in a time when women were seen nothing more than a bargaining tool for men, a way for them to gain and maintain power and control. Yet, this book not only has one strong woman but several, and they each represent good and evil.
This was an usual book in that combines both historical aspects with paranormal aspects which made it quite mesmerizing, casting a spell to keep you flying through the pages. The writer takes us back to the 10th century in Wales and the power struggle that was happening at that time. Make sure to read the historical note at the end. Elizabeth Davies gives readers an insight into the book and into the characters…very interesting.
The end of the book is not the end for our heroine, Caitlyn. Just when I thought she was finally going to get what she hoped for, Davies pulled the rug out from under me. I loved the ending that wasn’t an ending, and I am anxiously awaiting where she will go from here.
Elizabeth Davies is a paranormal author, whose books have a romantic flavour with more than a hint of suspense. And death. There’s usually death…
