The Shining Company
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: September 2008
Duration: 7 hours 43 minutes
A white stag and a dagger transform the life of Prosper, a Welsh chieftan's son. With Conn, his bodyservant, he leaves his isolated valley and joins the war band of King Mynyddog the Golden as a shieldbearer. For the Saxons have returned to threaten the northern tribes of Britain, and the Shining Company-a brotherhood of three hundred chosen warriors-must make a desperate attempt to repel invaders.
And with the Company travels the minstrel Aneirin, who will keep their names and their glory alive forever more.
"The story will appeal to readers of historical fiction or fantasy, as the rich language and strong Welsh dialect give the story a mythic air."-AudioFile
