The fifth entry in our stand alone novella series is presented by historian and award-winning fantasy author Kari Sperring. Set in the same Arthurian milieu as the excellent Serpent Rose (NewCon Press, 2019), Rose Knot once again delivers a powerful, richly textured tale featuring some of the lesser known members of King Arthur’s court. The sons of Lot, the Orkney royal family.
Following the violent death of their mother, Gaheris finds himself the reluctant focus of sibling tensions and squabbles; the suspicion of guilt hangs over him, not least because he will offer no explanation or defence. When Gaheris is tasked with escorting his brother’s wife, Llinos, home from court, neither suspect the tragic consequences that will result, as they lose their way and become stranded within an enchanting and beguiling forest.
Told by Llinos of Kinkenadron, wife to Sir Gareth of Orkney, this is a gripping saga of love, infidelity, loyalty, misguided intentions and the price of nobility.
“Kari Sperring's prose is clean, elegant and has not one wasted word… Highly recommended.” – Amazon reviewer
subtle storytelling. More tales of the Orkney clan, please!” – Liz Williams
