Bardsong Press Celtic Books
In the war-torn fifth century, after the end of Roman rule and before King Arthurís rise to power, spy and master of disguise Marcus ap Iorwerth diligently works to place the rightful high king in control of Britain. One of his duties, discrediting brokers of foreign mercenaries, leads him to Claerwen, an ethereal woman whose gift of visions draws him into the path of gods, a destiny as unshakable as the love they come to share.
In time, they realize Claerwen has inadvertently become ensnared in a lethal conspiracy to locate the priceless sacred symbols of Britainís high kings. Known collectively as Macsenís Treasure and lost for decades, the symbols have become the target of a mazelike network of unknown enemies seeking power. Claerwen knows nothing of the treasure and Marcus makes every effort to protect her, but he is betrayed and disappears. Alone and homeless, Claerwen must decide whether to believe what everyone tells her, that Marcus is dead and she should go into hiding, or to follow her instinct and the path of gods on a daunting quest to find him and the truth of Macsenís Treasure.
A blend of Dark Age Britainís history, its Celtic roots and the Arthurian legend, Into the Path of Gods introduces the spectacular four-part Macsenís Treasure series set in the volatile years leading to King Arthurís rise to power. Other books in the series include In the Shadow of Dragons and The Anvil Stone.
