"A king is a king, but a bard is the heart and soul of the people. He is their life in song, the lamp which guides their steps along the paths of destiny." So speaks Tegid Tathal, a bard and the son of bards. The great king, Meldryn Mawr, is dead and his kingdom lies in ruins. Treachery and brutality stalk Prydain. Prince Meldron, prompted by the cunning and grasping Siawn Hy, now claims the throne. But the bard alone holds the kingship - it is his to give where he pleases. His choice falls on another and the Day of Strife begins. Kingship, sovereignty and the making of a true king lie at the heart of this second book in the Song of Albion trilogy. Herein lie passion and power, heartbreak and hope - the fate of Albion and the destiny of the long-awaited Champion: Silver Hand.
