This book really kept me on my toes I cried so much not knowing what would happen. I’m so in love with this series.

Oh Anwen you and I are so alike! I can’t tell you enough how Tracy can bring a character to life! I’ll miss her and need to read this one again.

Amazon Reader

This series is in the right century, told in the right way, and based on sound research, plus, it’s just plain old great storytelling!

Amazon Reader

Brilliantly crafted conversation from Steffan with his first multi-faceted lesson for the girls in Latin, sarcasm & irony. Tracy is always amazing at this.

Amazon Reader

Tracy Cooper-Posey has brought the Arthurian Legend alive! I am so enjoying this series & it seems each book gets better and draws me in deeper. I hated to see this one end.

A simply fantastic series that is getting better and better with each new book.

I am a long time fan of Tracy Cooper-Posey and love her writing.

Amazon Reader

Pendragon Rises is an incredible story of two “invisible” people (Anwen and Stefan) who find unexpected love. Their story is woven into the amazing tapestry of the Arthurian Legend.

Amazon Reader

I am in love with this series. It’s hard not to become emotionally invested in any Cooper-Posey character, but I found that especially true with Stefan and Anwen. A mighty warrior struck blind and the overlooked mouse in the corner. My heart ached for them.

Amazon Reader

I absolutely love this book! We’re pulled into this fantastic world by Tracy Cooper-Posey’s vivid storytelling and deft handling of the personalities created within it. I can’t say enough good things about Pendragon Rises or the series it’s a part of!

Amazon Reader

Pendragon Rises is the best novel yet of this wonderful series, The Once and Future Hearts.  Once I started this one, I couldn’t put it down.

Amazon Reader

Tracy puts together a wonderful story that parallels the Arthurian legends and history of that time while keeping the characters relatable and realistic. A definite read!

Amazon Reader

I really liked Anwen’s happily ever after. Superb writing, I say.

Amazon Reader

The romance between Steffan and Anwen is absolutely perfect! If you’re afraid to give Historical romances a try due to authors not adhering to how you feel the past WAS, trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

Amazon Reader

Tracy Cooper-Posey just has a way with her writing that draws a reader into her world. Especially with the characters, there is such depth.

Amazon Reader

Thanks Tracy for yet another brilliantly written story, with the whole history side included.

Amazon Reader

She is invisible to everyone but the blind man…

Anwen is the least favored companion to Lady Igraine, the Duchess of Cornwall. No man will marry her, for she is old and plain. Instead, she teaches Igraine’s children to read.

Steffan of Durnovaria was once a celebrated warrior in the Duke of Cornwall’s army, a friend to Prince Uther, the High King’s brother, and destined for greatness, until a Saxon war hammer stole his sight and destroyed his life.

To deflect Steffan’s anger from the warriors around him, Igraine directs him to help Anwen teach her daughters. The assignment brings him no happiness and terrifies Anwen, who has never spoken to a man directly in her life.

When the new High King, Uther, meets Igraine for the first time and becomes obsessed with her, Anwen and Steffan are drawn into a web of lies and deceit that could destroy Britain’s fragile peace.

This novel is part of the ancient historical romance series, Once and Future Hearts, set in Britain during the time of King Arthur.

I've put 5 starts, because as per & I've not read it yet, Tracy's writing leads me to believe that it will deserve the 5 starts. Looks like I'm not the only one in a hurry to read it either. Can't wait again.

by Heather Baxter on Pendragon Rises

Having just finished this book, I found it to be a very interesting & describable story, with a lot of tugs into history we would all have not known about. I loved this story from start to finish, but the best thing about it for me was Steffen & Anwen.

The most unlikely love story to unfold amongst all the fighting.

A couple who had to fight everything against all the odds. As well as do everything else they had to do to keep alive & make a living in them days.

Plus you also has a Queen to one king doing things she shouldn't with another king. So much like nowadays, even I couldn't believe that one but there you go.

Merlin was privy to it all too, but then, when wasn't he? Keep a magician close & he'll keep you safe.

This book grabs you right from the beginning, I found myself enmeshed in a life of intrigue and romance can’t wait the next addition in this series, I just love the romance between Steffan and Anwen, it’s lovely and handled beautifully, read this one in one sitting, didn’t want to put the book down until I finished it

This is a great story filled with action and intrigue. And that goes double if you are a Mary Stewart fan. Tracy puts together a wonderful story that parallels the Arthurian legends and history of that time while keeping the characters relatable and realistic. A definite read!

Another great story by Tracy. Anwen and Steffan make an unlikely pair and I really enjoyed reading their story. The magic and mystery of the medieval times makes this an exciting read.

Pendragon rises is the third installment in the Once and future hearts series. This is the story of Anwen and Steffen and my favourite so far because, not only is the love story compelling but we've reached the point where the characters are all well-known to us. I really, really love Tracy's strong characters, especially women that, in one way or another are always key to the story on their own, not dependingon a male character, in this case Anwen, as plain as she thinks she is. What I like most about this story is the development of the characters. For example Steffen didn't remain his soldier persona but evolved and put some profound thoughts out there.

Tracy is really an upstanding craftswoman, achieving freshness in a very old tale such as the Arthurian one, just go ahead and read it already 😉

by Dina Bushrod on Pendragon Rises
A wondrous love story filled with marvelous storytelling and true facts.

The author never lets us down. This is the third book in the , "Once and Future Hearts" a series written during the time of King Arthur. A magnificent telling of finding love where least expected; of men and women both strong and weak. A new story told within stories of old, filled with adventure, lust, betrayals, beauty and blood. It takes hold of the reader, makes our hearts beat faster, has us sighing at the wondrous feeling of love, gasping at the disaster that lust brings and the "ohhh" knowledge of whats coming. Pick up this book and read a story that will immerse you within the legends of old while giving you a new view of circumstances that you'd swear was always there but somehow just missed it.

In this next book Pendragon Rises it is not only about a king, a king to be or a king to come; but about two people who are overlooked in society by most. Stefan, a soldier injured and now blind and Awen, a women who has spent her life in the background and the shadows. This is a story how 2 people who are completely different but have both the same values and what they have to do when those values are tested between themselves and the people they care for and respect.

Tracy has given us another great book and will keep you wanting to see what is next in this story.

by IngSav on Pendragon Rises
Totally caught up by this roller-coaster of action and romance.

I loved ‘watching’ the developing rapport between the two main characters.

It was the main characters’ relationship and also their interactions with others that made this book another can’t-put-it-down novel in this series!

Its an intriguing storyline with political bylines brewing in the background. I’m not one who likes to be too sidetracked into historical or political plot lines or details when there’s a romance blooming but Tracy Cooper-Posey strikes a very sweet balance between the two: engrossing action and storyline to offset the romance!

There were surprising twists and dastardly deeds perpetrated by characters I never suspected had it in them! Some of these events were the hard realities of the times but it’s written so well I was swept along for the ride, railing against the fates along with the rest of the characters in the story!

There were delightfully unexpected insights into some interesting details of these times, as if I was looking through a magnifying glass into days long-gone-by...small slice-of-life moments that make it all so real.

I never expected to thoroughly enjoy books of this historical era so much!!

I have previously enjoyed historical romances but the way these are written creates such a feeling of total immersion in the times that when I take a food break from reading I almost expected to have a hunk of bread and some stew served up!!

I highly recommend this book but make sure you read this awesome series in order as each book contributes to the whole story.
