The Circle of Ceridwen Saga


The First Book of the Circle Saga Ceridwen

Young women with courage. Swords with names. Vikings with tattoos. Warfare. Passion. Survival. Sheep. And Other Good Things…

It is the year 871, when England was Angle-Land. Of seven Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, five have fallen to the invading Vikings. No trait is more valued than loyalty, and no possession more precious than one’s steel. Across this war-torn landscape travels fifteen year old Ceridwen, now thrust into the lives of the conquerors.

Lost in the frozen woods, Ceridwen is discovered by the warriors accompanying young Ælfwyn, daughter of a Saxon lord, sold against her will in marriage as part of a peace treaty with a marauding Viking war chief. Their destination is the captured fortress of Four Stones, a ruin holding glittering treasure. There Ælfwyn must keep her vow and wed Yrling – and Ceridwen must do all she can to support her new friend in the rebuilding of the ravaged village and great hall.

But living with the enemy affords Ceridwen unusual freedoms – and unlooked-for conflicts. Amongst them she explores again her own heathen past, and learns to judge each man on his own merits. Yrling’s nephews Sidroc and Toki, both formidable warriors yet as different as night and day, compete to win Ceridwen for their own.

Through both guile and goodness Ceridwen and Ælfwyn begin transforming the world of Four Stones. But the threat of full-scale war escalates, and a midnight party of furtive Danes delivers someone to Four Stones who destroys the girls’ hopes of peace and contentment. Now Ceridwen must summon all her courage – a courage which will be sorely tested as she defies both Saxon and Dane and undertakes an extraordinary adventure to save a man she has never met.

The first book of The Circle of Ceridwen Saga, the historical adventure saga enjoyed by thousands of readers in over 125 nations.

Meticulously researched and thrillingly brought to life

    I have only just started this series (just finished the first book) and I am already obsessed with it. Cant wait to continue the journey when I start the second book. I really hope there is a tv or movie series in the pipe work for this saga and if so please look at Australian actress Isla Fisher to play Ceridwen. She is exactly what comes to mind when I envision her while reading this book. Thank you for such an amazing read!!

    Enjoyed all the books and am waiting for the next

    I just finished book 6 and I’m already in withdrawal, anxiously awaiting a 7th book. What a beautifully written saga from all points of view. You’ve drawn us in to each character in such a way we want, no – ” need” to know what happens next. Please continue this series, and beautifully written and expanded characters. I almost feel as if they are family. Bravo!

    Just finished book 6. What a rich & entertaining saga. Although I can see this as an end I do hope there will be a 7th. Please confirm. Thanks again.

    Please can you let me know if book 5 & 6 will be on audible soon. Very keen to read on. Love the books.

    I am in love with the saga. On book four. Thank you also for being so enthusiasts on the time period and the places where these stories take place. I so appreciate your videos on the website. Thank you.

  • Alesia June 24, 2017, 9:08 pm

    I loved all 6 books and am looking forward to book 7! Please tell me there is a book 7!!

    • Kay Lynn Odle-Moore July 11, 2017, 5:01 pm

      Like Alesia, I have thoroughly enjoyed all six books in the saga. From the descriptions of Gotland (I live in a similar land in Interior Alaska), to “thrummy” – yes, I’ve thrummed mittens (which are quite warm compared to regular knitting), I find them authentic and compelling. I feared for the characters in book six, but am pleased with the way you wove the story. Now I find myself yearning for more. Will there be a book seven? I sure hope so…..

  • Marilyn Copeland June 24, 2017, 8:46 pm

    I have been riveted to the Audible versions of the first four books and would love to hear the next two. Are they in the pipeline for Audible?

    • Susan July 21, 2017, 8:03 pm

      Me also, exactly! The audible versions are enthralling!

  • Lydia June 8, 2017, 8:24 pm

    I’ve just finished reading the first book of the Saga. It’s marvelous! I’am looking forward to read the next one! Lydia

  • JESSICA GABRIELLE BLY March 17, 2017, 9:42 am

    I absolutely love this saga and have passed it along to my circle of Jessica (those friends of mine who love books as I do). I hate to bother you with questions but I haven’t been able to find an answer online, will there be a book 7 to come? In any case, than you for the wonderful break from middling books and for the wonderful world you’ve created for me to enter into. These books have helped me get through more than I can say.

  • Colleen Gallen March 17, 2017, 5:18 am
