1093. An invasion and a curse. The three sons of William the Conqueror fight with each other for control of the Anglo-Norman kingdom created by their father’s conquest. The Norman Marcher lords are let loose to consolidate the conquest of Wales, pushing across the English border to the east and invading from the sea to the south. Nest ferch Rhys is the daughter of the king of south-west Wales. Captured during the Norman assault on her father’s lands, she is raised by her captors, the powerful Montgomery family. Nest is groomed to be the wife of a Norman, despite her pre-existing betrothal to a Welsh prince. Arnulf Montgomery has taken over her father’s lands and is her intended husband, but Count Henry, the youngest son of the Conqueror, is also captivated by the Welsh noblewoman. Who will Nest marry, and can the Welsh rebels oust the Normans? Book I in the Conquest trilogy centring on the turbulent life of Nest ferch Rhys and the reign of King Henry I. 'I could not put this book down from the moment I started it. I practically inhaled the content.' Poppy Coburn
Reviews
Amazon

‘Excellent, exciting and extremely addictive!! If you're a history lover then this book is for you. Nest is a character I've never come across in other books and she opens up a whole new interesting world. I can't wait to read the next book.’ Tony Hawkes

Books of All Kinds

‘A richly detailed, historical story of life, love, and power in the 11th Century Anglo-Norman kingdom. Not a historical romance but a harsh, realistic, factually-based historical story that will grip you from start to finish. I became hooked by the workings of power, the betrayals and lies, and the treatment of women in the King's court, and the author really lets you step back into the past to a much harsher time. With plenty of danger, subterfuge, and shocking revelations, DAUGHTER OF THE LAST KING is an outstanding piece of historical fiction.’

Goodreads

‘This is a beautifully written story, set against impressively researched history and narrated at a thriller pace. This is history brought to life with real characters, real events and a great story. I couldn’t put it down and greatly anticipate the second volume.’ Gina Connolly

Goodreads

‘This is a wonderfully written historical novel, full of details that bring to life the people and the England and Wales of the time. From the descriptions of the wild Welsh coast, to the splendid court of Henry I, Tracey Warr makes you feel you are there alongside Nest, experiencing all of the sights and sounds of the medieval world. Highly recommended.’ Christine Rolls

Historical Novels Review

‘The novel is clearly meticulously researched, but it is never weighed down, and the detail about daily life at court, in Norman castles or in convents is always interspersed with great character development, engaging dialogue and page-turning action. Nest is a lively and engaging protagonist, one I look forward to meeting again when the next instalment in the trilogy is released.’ Lisa Redmond

The Booktrail

‘As the drawbridge came down and I ventured in, I was not disappointed. In fact I remember nothing of what happened in my every day life until I came out at the end. The level of detail and care and attention which has gone into this novel is spellbinding but it never gets in the way of the plot. A brilliantly woven tapestry of historical intrigue where I felt as if I’d been part of the novel, and part of Nest’s life and I missed her for a while afterwards.’ The Booktrail
