The Briar King: The Kingdoms of Thorn and Bone
By Greg Keyes
The kingdom of Crotheny is on the edge of war, and in the forest the ancient Briar King awakens, trailed by terror and destruction. The ruling family of Crotheny struggles not only to retain their rule, but to fulfill ancient prophesies. The mixture of Celtic legend and the story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke make for a fascinating compilation of old and new.
