From School Library Journal Grade 7–9—An unexpected encounter with Saxon warriors in the hills near their home ended with the death of Branwen's brother and her banishment to safety in the kingdom of her father's ally Prince Llew. While struggling to adjust to a pampered and dainty new life as a princess, Branwen finds herself increasingly drawn to her old ways as a warrior maiden. Teased and taunted because the people around her cannot understand her strength and mastery with slingshots and the wild falcon that follows her, the 15-year-old eventually gives in to the secret temptation to be trained as a skilled warrior. Thus begins her journey toward becoming the defender of her people. Daughter to a warrior mother, Branwen must quickly press on to maturity and decide whether to marry as tradition and her family wills or follow an uncertain, but prophesied destiny as Warrior Princess. Exciting from start to finish, the story follows her as she moves beyond the awkwardness of girlhood to the assurance of the powerful young woman she is about to become. Filled with battle scenes, fully realized characters, and a conclusion that will keep readers guessing, this story has surefire appeal.—Caryl Soriano, New York Public Library Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From After Princess Branwen sees her brother murdered by a gang of marauding Saxons, she pledges to avenge his death. She wants to be a warrior but is unsure of her bravery and skills. Much to her dismay, she is sent away for her safety to a neighboring kingdom where women do not hunt or fight, and she is chastised for not acting like a lady. Branwen escapes to the forest, where she meets a mystical lady in white and learns of a prophecy that foretells both her destiny as a warrior and a devastating choice she will have to make. This historical fantasy is filled with realistic situations and intense battle scenes and features a fast-paced plot that will keep readers turning pages. The strong descriptions of medieval Britain and insight into Branwen’s character will appeal to middle-grade fantasy readers who enjoy strong heroines, ancient magic, and a hint of romance. Readers will follow along with Branwen’s struggles and eagerly anticipate a sequel. Grades 7-10. --Melanie Koss
