Bio-luminescence .... when algae bloom in the red tide. what a great pic by Here Be Dragons!

This book has convinced me that I like historical fiction. I completely lost myself in it. I kept looking up parts of the story only to find out that they were the actually historical events of Prince Llywelyn the Great of Wales' life. The timeline has been changed a bit. I love history and this is one of many great stories well told.
