    I wrote this book, so I’m going to give it 5 stars, but I thought I’d take this opportunity to say a bit more about it. What’s it about? Well to paraphrase Bob Dylan, its about 280 pages. There were some things I wanted to say, but I think that books are there for people to discover their own messages – or none. I'd be interested in what others think it's about. It’s a story about a boy learning about himself and how he fits with other people and the wider world. Except that he also learns that he has a rather special place! Although the story is set in a specific time and place,the Welsh Marches in 1217 – and these are important - it is also a fantasy novel. Some of the characters really existed, and I haven't made them do anything that they didn't actually do. As the action proceeds further west into the wilderness it begins to disconnect from the historical reality to meet with famous characters and creatures from mythology. Until the action is brought back to real events and real... More > people. And hopefully it’s a good yarn too. There are strange forest creatures, shape shifting semi-deities and, of course, a Dragon. There’s the mysterious lady of the Llyn y Fan Fach (a lake in west Wales), and hints of extraordinary powers. But above all this is Taliesin’s Journey. He may be a descendent of Taliesin the Bard and Merddyn the Magician, but he still has to find his own way. I hope readers enjoy this novel.< Less
