With her novel Elayne – Rabenkind (Elayne – Raven Child), Jessica Bernett sets off into early medieval Britain and on the tracks of King Arthur:
A prophecy she can’t escape. A burden she can hardly bear. A love, tender, fragile and threatened by lies, intrigue and the game of power.
The young Elayne of Corbenic grew up in a dark fortress in the north of Britain. Her father, King Pelles, is obsessed with a vision that Elayne’s mother is said to have had shortly before her death. Elayne becomes the mother of the greatest hero of all time. For this the king sacrifices everything: the welfare of his people and the love of his daughter.
The novel is the start of a trilogy published by Sternensand Verlag.
The author reads selected passages from her book, reports on her research work and is looking forward to the questions of her listeners.
