Wow … this is a fantastic story. The author takes us straight into the heart of Arthurian Britannia with a tale that gives us the origins of the story of Merlin…Fantastically written and filled with tension.

Love, love, love this book! I am amazed at how well Tracy Cooper-Posey has constructed this story to introduce us to Merlin, King Arthur’s magician, through characters surrounding his beginnings.

Reader Review

It takes me back to the magic I felt when reading Mary Stewart’s stories of Merlin. Tracy Cooper-Posey has written another winner!

Reader Review

I was absolutely surprised by how the events unfurled, and if only for that you should read it. I just can’t wait for the next one.

Reader Review

As a long time, self proclaimed Arthurian Legend junkie I couldn’t wait to dive into Tracy Cooper Posey’s new series. Tracy once again proves to be a master story teller as she weaves the delicate threads of this beloved legend into her own.

Reader Review

I love how the legends and historical factual ‘bits’ are interwoven in the story.

Reader Review

Oh my goodness. Of course I was not sure what to expect with this but what I got was a wonderful story set in the time just before King Arthur. Invading Saxons, Romans, Kings, princesses, mysteries, Merlin, and romance? Wonderful beginning to a new series and I cannot wait to read more.

Reader Review

Just loved the book – Tracy always manages to develop great story lines that keep you hooked until the end (thanks for the late night Tracy!).

Reader Review

I also love the fact that her female characters are definitely not boring, whiny or TSTL.

Reader Review

Tracy Cooper Posey is brilliant at weaving stories with individuals that are completely believable in their thoughts and dialogue.

Tracy Cooper Posey weaves a magic web

Tracy Cooper Posey weaves a magic web once more. With Born of No Man we start on a journey along the road to the myths and legends of Arthurian Britain. Beautifully written and pacy, there is never a dull moment as we learn more of the principle characters and the attitudes of the time. Be prepared to read in one sitting as the book is unputdownable!

Fantastic start to a new series: I’m completely hooked!

What an exciting start to this historical series with interesting characters and situations that are authentic to the challenges for men and women of these times!!

I loved the setting of this story and the succinct writing style which carried me through what I had thought would be a weighty novel. I have no particular interest in the historical characters of myth and legend who are woven into this story but I loved that the story was told from personal viewpoints and kept interesting by its fast-moving action and intrigue.

Tracy Cooper-Posey tells a rich and complex story with hints of political intrigue and interesting characters who are very much a product of their time. What I really appreciate about Cooper-Posey’s writing is that while the story and characters are complex I never got bored by expansive historical facts and background, it was all relevant, brief and interesting.

I had meant to just read the first chapter but hours later, in the early hours of the morning no less, I found that I had demolished the whole book!!

I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series and I now know not to start one of these books too late at night!!

Engaging Trip to a Difficult and Early Time!!!

Captivating story of early times where alliances and battles are the rule. Where women are second-class citizens, not taught to read or write, yet may hold power by the fact they go unnoticed. The focus of our story is Lynette, companion to Princess Vivian who has the “sight” to predict future events. When Vivian insists on assisting a bedraggled man at her own peril, Lynette is loyal and follows her mistress.

When warrior Cadfael the Black become suspicious of their activities Lynette must distract him. Her study of the man shows her to earn his trust by being straightforward rather than attempting seduction. The sights and sounds of medieval times come alive in this compelling read!!
