Inspired by the history in the Welsh mountains and its mountains and castles, Stephanie Burgis's The Raven Heir is a fabulous fantasy that draws on the Wars of the Roses, magic and nature to deliver an action-packed adventure with bags of heart.

Read a chapter from The Raven Heir

Cordelia and her triplets Rosalind and Giles have lived safely in the castle at the centre of the forest all their lives, protected by the spells their mother has woven. The only time Cordelia feels truly free is when she turns into a dragonfly or a blackbird and can fly beyond the great stone walls. But then one day, the outside world comes to them. Two rival dukes and their soldiers have come for the triplets - because whoever is the eldest is the heir to the throne.  But when their mother refuses to reveal which child is the eldest, she is taken prisoner, and Cordelia and her brother and sister find themselves on the run in a dangerous new world.
