The fifth book in The Kingfountain Series, ‘The Silent Shield’ is another wonderful foray into the kingdom of Ceredigion and the conflict that threatened to consume the surrounding lands.
The continued story of Tryneowy Kiskaddon is personal and compelling, enchanting in both plot and the language used to tell the story and depict the places in which it takes place.
A young woman of strength and integrity, Tryneowy is an admirable character that readers can respect, a role model for equality and embracing one’s abilities despite the judgement and expectations of others.
Readers who have not read the previous books in this series will find this to be a complete story on its own, and thoroughly enjoyable as such.
Those reader would, however, be better advised to start at the beginning of this outstanding series, simply because it is so immensely enjoyable.
