One of my very favourite authors. This book is one of the best and most historically accurate historical fiction stories.( I have done some research of my own). Welch history comes to life and leaves behind a great understanding of early Welch history.

I bought this book as a gift for a friend who enjoys historical novels as I do. I have read all of Penman's books and wanted to introduce him to them by starting with the first one. They are so well researched and written, hard to put down and "keepers" on my bookcase shelves.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. Okamoto on April 30 2004
Format: Paperback
This is the first of a trio of books about Medieval England and Wales. Most of the characters in this book of historical fiction really existed. King John, who has been demonized by the Robin Hood tales, was a strong king of England who loved his children dearly and loathed his enemies. Llewellyn, the first Prince of Wales dreams of a united country. King John dreams of subduing Wales and Llewellyn. When King John marries his (...)daughter, Joanna, to Llewellyn, Joanna is at first reluctant and frightened. However, she comes to love her husband and finds that she must chose between spouse and father.
Ms. Penman writes with incredible power and emotion. Her history is well researched, and her characters, settings and dialogue are all incredibly believable. You may find that when you put the book down you are wondering, just a bit, exactly where and when you are. I highly recommend this book.

I had read The Sunne in Splendour when I was in high school, and had fallen in love with Sharon Kay Penman's writing style. Unfortunately, it took me another 7 years to pick up another novel by her, and it was this novel. Here Be Dragons was absolutely incredible. The images she weaves with her tale of Llewelyn are so amazingly detailed that you can almost imagine being there with him, with Joanna, with King John... I couldn't put this book down, and it's not often I get so sucked into a novel.

Do yourself a favour and read this book, and go ahead and pick up The Sunne in Splendour while you're at it. You won't be disappointed.

I read this book 14 years ago, and it still stands out in my mind as the best book I've ever read. After all these years I still remember the people - Joahnna, Llewellyn, John - almost as if they're real to me. If you're looking for an emotional investment in a story, this one will do it.

The book may be long, but not a word is wasted. The love story of Llewellyn and Joanna is timeless and relevant to modern times. I'm particularly fond of the strong female characters!

This is a beautiful book! There are not many books that read as well as Sharon Kay Penman's. They are effortless reading. She has made all of the people in her books very real and personal to me. I am planning my first trip to Wales, due to this book. I'm going to start the second in the trilogy as soon as I sign off, and I have no doubt I will enjoy it as much as I have this one.

Sharon Kay Penman is a remarkably gifted writer. Her impeccable historical research, attention to detail and superb storytelling ability make her novels consistently excellent. "Here Be Dragons" is one of her best efforts. It is the second book in her Plantagenet series, which include "The Sunne In Splendour," "Falls The Shadow," and "The Reckoning." Each of these wonderful historical novels stands on its own, however, and while it is an extraordinary experience to read each book in order, one does not have to do so to appreciate the history, the characters or the period.
Ruthless, power hungry King John Platagenet ruled 13th century England with an iron fist. He was determined to bring Wales, a country divided, under his thumb and into his power. Charismatic Llewelyn Farr, Prince of Northern Wales fought to unite his country's nobility and provide a strong front against the English. He finally succeeded in securing a tentative truce with England by marrying King John's beloved illegitimate daughter, Joanna. Initially wary of her new husband, her father's enemy, Joanna grew to love Llewelyn passionately over the years, but she was constantly torn between the politics of Wales and England, and her love for her husband and her father.
This is a complex saga of historic characters, politics, intrigues, betrayals, bloody battles and wars, romance, lust, power struggles, princesses held captive, revenge and forgiveness. Yet once begun, this extraordinary epic is almost impossible to put down. Ms. Penman portrays Wales, its people, culture and landscape vividly with glorious detail. It is fascinating to become involved with the characters and realize how linked they are by common ancestry.
