Product Description

Product Description

In a violent age when enemies besiege Brydein and alliances shift as swiftly as the wind, stand two remarkable leaders: the Caledonian warrior-queen Gyanhumara and her consort, Arthur the Pendragon. Their fiery love is tempered only by their conviction to forge unity between their disparate peoples. Arthur and Gyan must create an impenetrable front to protect Brydein and Caledonia from land-lusting Saxons and the marauding Angli raiders who may be massing forces in the east, near Arthur’s sister and those he has sworn to protect.

But their biggest threat is an enemy within: Urien, Arthur’s rival and the man Gyan was treaty-bound to marry until she broke that promise for Arthur’s love. When Urien becomes chieftain of his clan, his increase in wealth and power is matched only by the magnitude of his hatred of Arthur and Gyan—and his threat to their infant son.

Morning’s Journey, sequel to the critically acclaimed Dawnflight, propels the reader from the heights of triumph to the depths of despair, through the struggles of some of the most fascinating characters in all of Arthurian literature. Those struggles are exacerbated by the characters’ own flawed choices. Gyan and Arthur must learn that while extending forgiveness to others may be difficult, forgiveness of self is the most excruciating—yet ultimately the most healing—step of the entire journey.

The story of Arthur and Gyan continues in this second installment of The Dragon's Dove Chronicles. I've found this book to be even more intense than the first as the reader learns of the results of Gyan's broken betrothal to Urien and the effect it has not only on both her and Arthur, but also her child and her clan.

Gyan must face the harsh reality of her choices and though she is a fighter and warrior at heart, she must learn the power of forgiveness to become whole.

Once again, Headlee has weaved a tale packed with action, romance and suspense. I will follow this series to completion.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Arthurian legends. But be warned--once you pick it up, you won't set it down until you have finished the last page!

HASH(0xa43b01bc) out of 5 stars KIM HEADLEE HAS CONTINUED THIS WONDERFUL STORY....A GREAT, DON'T WANT TO MISS SERIES April 18 2015
By Sue Kay Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I WAS GIVEN THIS BOOK FOR AN HONEST REVIEW AND THIS IS MY HONEST OPINION
Sequel to Dawnflight, goes from triumph to despair, struggles of the fascinating characters of Arthurian times. Those struggles are exacerbated by the characters’ own flawed choices. Urien is upset that Gyan chose Arthur over him. Gyan and Auther are happy when she gives birth to a son but Urien is planning revenge. With Morgne help he hopes that the marriage to him will get her out from under her brother’s control and she can have some power. She tells Urien about deadly herbs without questions. When he says he wants the child, she is shaken but finds a way to kidnap but not giving her nephew to him Gyna overcome with grief her over the loss of her son makes some bad choices. She refuses to believe Angusel when he told her what he found, even though he has always been a faithful friend , and banished him. She decides to go back to Maun when her loss faith, love and family starts to fall apart. Breaking Arthur's heart because she is so devastated. Life is never easy and self doubt and old enemies are still looking to take revenge. Maun is attacked but because a fisher man warned them, Gyan rallied her troops and led them to a victory. Author rushes in when all the fighting starts to come to a close. Arthur and Gyan, find forgiveness,get back together and move on with lives. There is lots of action, suspense, romance, angst , deceit and some dark sinister undertones.Gyan and Arthur learn that forgiving others may be difficult, forgiveness yourself is harder, but the most healing. I love her ideal for this love story. A lot time for research of different histories, legends and myths that went into writing these books. Every characters has their own struggle to make and accept the changes in their lives which made them seem more real. I love it when a book keeps me from putting it down.

This book did not disappoint. It was just as exciting Dawnflight. The book picks up exactly where the first on ended. Urien is still upset that Gyan chose Arthur over him. Gyan gives birth to a son making them both are happy. Urien starts scheming revenge. Playing with Morgne emotions, he gets her to do his bidding, she helps him in hopes that the marriage to Urien will get her out from under her brother’s control, so she can have some power. She gives Urien information on herbs that are deadly but never questions him. Then he sends word to her he wants the child. Morgne is shaken by this and finds a way to accomplish this kidnapping without turning her nephew over.

Gyna is so overcome with grief her with the loss of her son her judgments are impaired. She even refuses to believe her faithful friend Angusel as he explained what he found, she banished him. Her faith, love and family starts to crumble, and she decides to go back to Maun. Arthur’s heart is breaking seeing her so devastated. Maun gets attacked again, but thanks to a fisher man coming in late he could warn them. Gyan rallied her troops and led them to a victory. Author rushes in once all the fighting starts to come to a close. Arthur and Gyan reconcile and find forgiveness and try to move forward I’m there lives.

I anxiously await Kim’s next book. I feel it will tie up some loose ends. Will Gyan seek out Angusel, asking for forgiveness? Is their son little Loholt truly gone? How far will Morgne go to secure power. Can Urien become even more ruthless to destroy Gyan? So many questions!!!

HASH(0xa43b0648) out of 5 stars Good Reading Dec 12 2015
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Gyan and Arthur’s love is strong, but very new. Can it withstand the storm ahead?

Morning’s Journey is the second book detailing Gyan and Arthur’s adventures and begins immediately following the events of the first book, Dawnflight. Anyone wishing to read this book needs to read Dawnflight first.

When I first met Gyan and Arthur in Dawnflight, I grew to like them both very much. They are wonderfully rounded characters, and I just knew they were meant to be together. As I began Mornings Journey, I eagerly anticipated reading about the great things they would accomplish together. However, as I read, it became clear that Gyan and Arthur haven’t become the strong team I know they could be. I was surprised by how much time they spend at odds with each other. Arthur clearly loves Gyan, but he doesn’t realize his actions are smothering at times. Gyan seems determined to question and mistrust practically everything that Arthur does. The gap between them grew with every page.

An unexpected pregnancy only added to the strain on their budding relationship. Gyan loves life as a warrior and knows that children would require sacrifice on her part. Consequently she doesn’t truly want to have children right away. However, birth control options are limited during this time period, and Gyan and Arthur both know that pregnancy is nearly always a possibility when having sex. I found it very hard to watch the pregnancy push Gyan and Arthur even further apart when it could have been something to strengthen their connection.

When unimaginable tragedy strikes, Gyan and Arthur’s bond is almost completely shattered. Gyan forcefully pushes people away from her, and she seems most severe on those who care about her the most. Gyan’s treatment of one of my favorite characters is absolutely atrocious. I can’t give this character’s name without spoiling the story, but I will say that she places an inordinate amount of blame on them. This person had demonstrated unswerving loyalty to her and her family time after time, and it was as if none of that mattered at all. She made this person feel completely worthless, and the actions she takes against them have probably done irreparable damage to their reputation. This coupled with the problems between Gyan and Arthur, made Morning’s Journey very difficult to read at times. Toward the end of the story, Gyan slowly begins to realize that she has been too harsh. I’m sorry to say that the relationship had not been mended at the tale’s conclusion. I can only hope that Gyan reaches out to her friend in the next book.

Despite all the turmoil, I am pleased to say that Gyan and Arthur eventually find their way back to each other. They have scars on their hearts, but I could see a glimmer of the wonderful couple they could be in the very last pages of the book.

Overall, Morning’s Journey is a good book. Gyan and Arthur certainly travel a rocky path, but I believe they will find happiness together eventually. I recommend this tale of love and loss to fans of historical romance.

HASH(0xa43b0a08) out of 5 stars A great historical romance April 17 2015
By Steph Destiny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I got the book from the author and Paranormal Romance & Authors That Rock in exchange for an honest review.
Morning's Journey is the second book on The Dragon’s Dove Chronicles. Therefore, I suggest you to read the first book on the series if you don’t want to get confused. Since I didn’t read the first book it took me quite a while to figure out the situation the characters were in and how they end up there. The story seems to take place in the middle ages. As soon as I heard Arthur Pendragon I couldn’t help but think this story will be about Camelot, Merlin and Morgana. However, it seems it was wrong. Don’t take me wrong, I would have loved to see those characters but the author did a pretty good job in building a unique story in a time span that seems to be quite similar. Our main characters are Gyanhumara or Gyan, for short, and Arthur Pendragon. Gyan isn’t only a warrior queen but also Arthur's consort. At first I was confused as to why she was a consort. I wasn’t sure if it was out of love or if it was for the good of their people. However, I came to realize that, of course, there was this fiery love. I don’t want to do a spoiler in case you haven’t read the book but in order not to get confused you need to know that Gyan had a betrothed before Arthur. Guess love conquers all because now our hero and heroine are together and waiting for nine months to pass, if you catch my meaning.
I liked Gyan character. She is a natural born leader but sometimes it can be difficult to give that position to someone else when you have other duties to attend to like being pregnant. The poor woman had all that stress and to make matters worse her ex-betrothed came into the picture to threaten her, Arthur and the not yet born baby. Arthur was also a likable character. In fact, even though Gyan and Arthur are supposed to be these fiery warriors, they are quite charming, funny and sweet. There were times when I felt I would melt by how sweet this feared warriors but respected warriors talked to each other. I really wish to say the story didn’t have any grieving and that there was no conflict between them. However, if that was the case then there wouldn’t be a story to tell. I found myself crying to some point of the story and I felt quite empathic when it came to Gyan but I also understood Arthur's actions and feelings. They both had different duties and the just acted in the way they thought was best but…that doesn’t mean by doing so it won’t kill you, slowly. This isn’t a story just about politics or war but also about how love and forgiveness conquer love and guide a couple on the rightful path.
I highly recommend this story to anyone that loves a good historical romance that covers not only drama and action but that it holds a very special lesson on personal growth and forgiveness. Nonetheless, I recommend you have a tissue or two near if you are as emotional as me.

HASH(0xa43b0aec) out of 5 stars Intriguing sequel! Oct. 27 2013
By Kiki Deister - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Morning's Journey is the sequel to Dawnflight and my favorite of the two! This series is an epic tale of Arthurian mythology. What I love most about this series is that the characters are created in new ways. The cast of characters are those with whom all lovers of Arthurian literature are familiar, but presented in a completely different way. It is the alternate reality version of mythology! And it is one that is definitely a bit darker and grittier than most!

I love a book that can push its way into my head and keep me hooked. This book did this for me, even more than the first. It picks up right after Dawnflight ends, and right into the midst of Gyan's nightmare, predicting Urien's win. It was a dramatic, and bloody, start to the ongoing sage of Arthur and Gyan! There are a lot of these heart-pounding, full of anticipation scenes, the kind of scenes that keep you turning the pages.

Being a student of mythology, I can thoroughly appreciate the sheer amount of research that the author has done with this series. The weaving of myth and history is beautiful to read, and seamlessly done. I love, love, love the blending of myths from different cultures, and this author is an expert at doing so!

Things to love about Morning's Journey...

-The mythology. The cultures referenced in this book are historically accurate, but she blends their mythology together in new and interesting ways that make you look at the Arthurian stories in an entirely new light.
-The very real struggles of Arthur and Gyan. I love that,despite being epic characters, they have their own personal struggles. My favorite is Gyan's struggle to realize her new life NOT as a leader.

My recommendation: For lovers of Arthurian stories, a definite must read. However, you should most definitely read Dawnflight first as these truly are an epic saga from one book to the next.
