Publisher's Summary

This is the story of Owain Glyndwr, the last Welsh Prince of Wales. In the year 1399, Welsh nobleman Owain Glyndwr is living out a peaceful gentleman's life in the Dee Valley of Wales with his wife Margaret and their eleven children. But when Henry of Bolingbroke usurps the throne of England from his cousin Richard II, that tranquility is forever shattered.

What starts as a feud with a neighboring English lord over a strip of land evolves into something greater - a fight for the very independence of Wales. After a harrowing encounter on the misty slopes of Cadair Idris, the English knight Harry Hotspur offers Owain a pact he cannot resist.

Peace, however, comes with a heavy price. As tragedies mount and temptations loom, Owain questions whether he can fulfill the prophecies and lead his people to freedom without destroying those around him. For centuries, the bards have sung of King Arthur's return, but is this reluctant warrior prince the answer to those prophecies?

    I tried but couldn't stay interested for most of the story. It would get better then lose me again with mundane details or storyline. :(

    Story
    "Poor voice"
    What made the experience of listening to Uneasy Lies the Crown the most enjoyable?

    As a proud Welshman living in the Marches close to where a lot of the action took place, I can picture vividly the country described and I am descended from people who must have been directly effected by the events described. A very good story well written and only spoilt by the voice.


    What didn’t you like about Kyle McCarley’s performance?

    A voice that sounded like an Irishman living in South Shields. His pronunciation was at times undecipherable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    Surely there must have been people available who could actually speak both the English and Welsh in a way that was easy on the ear and understandable.
