Publisher's Summary

Ninth-century Saxon England crumbles under the onslaught of a relentless foe - the Danish Vikings. Ceridwen, a young woman with divided loyalties, watches as the peace and plenty she enjoys at the Saxon stronghold of Kilton gives way to wary watchfulness. Her dearest friend, Ælfwyn, sold in marriage to a Dane in a desperate bid for peace, travels to Kilton and recounts the events that befell the fortress of Four Stones in captured Lindisse. But Ceridwen is also confronted by Sidroc, the Dane she ran from, and cannot forget. Ceridwen's life revolves around her beloved husband Gyric, rendered now unfit for battle and seemingly, for happiness. At the heart of Kilton is Gyric's brother Godwin, the young lord who struggles both against the Danish invaders and an unthinkable desire. Growing tensions between the brothers mirror the escalating threat to the Saxons from the Danes. The fate of all at Kilton hangs in the balance at a single terrifying battle.

Meticulously researched and thrillingly brought to life, here is Ceridwen of Kilton, book two of the historical adventure The Circle of Ceridwen Saga.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The Crumbling of 9th-Century Saxon England!

What made the experience of listening to Ceridwen of Kilton the most enjoyable?

As in Book 1, seeing how the protagonist, Ceridwen of Kilton, navigates her way in and out of challenging and dangerous situations.

What did you like best about this story?

The surprising gift Ceridwen and Gyric bestowed upon Godwyn (Gyric's brother) and Edyth (Godwyn's wife & Ceridwen & Gyric's sister-in-law) at the end of the book!

What about Nano Nagle’s performance did you like?

Nano Nagle grew to be even more comfortable with the characters in this book. She seemed to have more fun with them.

Who was the most memorable character of Ceridwen of Kilton and why?

Again, as in Book 1, I'd have to say the protagonist, Ceridwen of Kilton! Ceridwen's character creatively navigates its way through the many challenges and surprising situations expertly sprinkled throughout the story. This behavior and growth gains her the love and respect of her husband, Gyric, and the many men and women they encounter in their life.

Any additional comments?

If you thought that Ceridwen and Gyric could rest on their laurels a bit after facing the many challenges they encountered in Book 1, The Circle of Ceridwen, while trying to safely arrive at the Saxon Stronghold of Kilton, you're in for many new surprises in Book 2, Ceridwen of Kilton! I found Gyric's dark mood throughout frustrating, many times I just wanted to take hold of him and shake him! The author, Octavia Randolph, masterfully weaves us through some twists and turns that add a depth of interest that further ingratiates the listener to the story!

Another great book.

Enjoyed listening to this book as much as the first book. The journey Ceridwen is taking through life is fascinating to listen to and with the details of life in this time in history it is easy to picture how people lived and died. The narration is terrific and I look forward to listening to the next book in the saga.

Love the story but narration is irritating

I am enjoying this series and love the genre but the narration is just wrong. This voice actor has a lovely voice but she seems to put the wrong emotion to heated scenes.
