The American writer Sarah Woodbury has grown up surrounded by history, something that she has incorporated into her own work during the course of her writing career, as not only were her parents both historians, but she also followed in their footsteps as she undertook a career in history as well, undertaking an education in anthropology, all of which only served to fill her head with stories and creative ideas with which to put into her work, ultimately bringing the past to life in the process. Focusing on her Welsh ancestry, something which had been an endless source of fascination for her in the past, she would also allow this to color her work in her career to come. Constantly creating stories and ideas, she would focus on grand historical sagas and dramas, whilst also keeping them down-to-earth and grounded in their sensibilities and approach. This she would do through her use of character and how they interacted with one another, along with allowing the audience to generate a sense of familiarity with the leading protagonist, creating a feeling of kinship almost with them as the books progressed. Whilst she would have ever larger and ever more expansive story-lines, she would never forget the people at the center of them and the interplay between them all. Infusing elements of fantasy and even science-fiction at times, she has never been short of imagination either, as she has been able to establish whole worlds within her narratives. Her series stand testament to this, as they manage to follow fun and involving narratives that keep her readers continually coming back for more, eagerly awaiting each installment with eagerness and anticipation. An ideal example of this would be her highly popular series of novels titled ‘The Last Pendragon Saga’, which are a collection of novels set within the realms of a medieval society infused with elements of fantasy. Taking the reader on a journey into another exciting new world, they manage to really transport the audience, allowing them to feel surprised and, ultimately, entertained by the saga overall. With the characters developing throughout as well, it manages to change them as the series goes on, transforming them along with the reader too. A wide and imaginative saga, it also certainly has a lot scope, as it incorporates a vast world filled with demons and dangers, whilst never losing its idiosyncratic style and sense of personality. Charting the history of the ‘Pendragon’ lineage, the series itself is steeped within the world of Arthurian legend, as Woodbury incorporates a lot of her own historical knowledge into it all, as she gives it all an even greater degree of authenticity. Focusing primarily on the character of Cade, it sees him as the only living heir of King Arthur himself, as he must make the most of his legacy and all that it brings. Truly testing and challenging him over the course of the series, he’s really pushed to the limit, as he manages to take the reader on a journey that they will definitely want to see right through to the very end.

Running for eight novels in total, the last one was written in 2017 with the release of ‘Legend of the Pendragon’, which was to be the final installment in the long-running saga. Charting all the way back to 2016, the series was released in a relatively short time-frame, as it really is a set of books as a whole, with each one being an essential part. Having built a strong fan-base surrounding its release, the saga really has managed to attract readers from all over the world, as its legacy will continue to live on for many years to come.
