Out of the mists of ancient myths – The Du Lac Chronicles

Today’s guest has visited with me before. I featured Mary Anne Yarde in my series about indie authors some years ago (see the post here) and she was also part of my Medieval mayhem bloghop, talking about where myth and history meets (see more here ) 

Mary Anne is a very generous writer, happy to share posts and book information for other authors. Out of that generosity, her site, The Coffee Pot Book Club, was born, and today I am hosting a stop on a Coffee Pot Book Club tour showcasing one of Mary Anne’s own books. Finally! For those of you into Arthurian legend, into passion and deceit, well, look no further than the Du Lac Chronicles!.


A generation after Arthur Pendragon ruled, Briton lies fragmented into warring kingdoms and principalities.

Eighteen-year-old Alden du Lac ruled the tiny kingdom of Cerniw. Now he half-hangs from a wooden pole, his back lashed into a mass of bloody welts exposed to the cold of a cruel winter night. He’s to be executed come daybreak—should he survive that long.

When Alden notices the shadowy figure approaching, he assumes death has come to end his pain. Instead, the daughter of his enemy, Cerdic of Wessex, frees and hides him, her motives unclear.

Annis has loved Alden since his ill-fated marriage to her Saxon cousin—a marriage that ended in blood and guilt—and she would give anything to protect him. Annis’s rescue of Alden traps them between a brutal Saxon king and Alden’s remaining allies. Meanwhile, unknown forces are carefully manipulating the ruins of Arthur’s legacy.
