Tony Richesabout this book: Long ago, in ancient Wales, two kings battle for their lives. In a land where battles can last decades, trouble is brewing and the stakes are high. The queen of the northern tribes has a new son and the king of the south has young Saxon bride.
At the heart of the conflict are the bishops, who are torn between their faith and their duty. Powerful knights and warlords see the opportunity to grow rich but know there the loser will pay a heavy price. This is a tale of love and sacrifice, soldiers and spies, heroes and assassins, who meet in the war to end all wars.
The narrative faithfully also follows EVERY move in the queen sacrifice game, known as "The Game of the Century" between Donald Byrne and 13-year-old Bobby Fischer in New York City on October 17th, 1956.
