King Arthur's reign will finally come to a spellbinding end. This final chapter of the Camelot saga traces Mordred's birth, childhood, and recounts how he came to set in motion the fates and call forth the "wicked day of destiny."

I did not catch that this is abridged. And it is very abridged. Barely makes sense. Which is a shame, because I know the story to be good.
Also, I really do not like this narrator. His reading style is ponderous. Very strange cadence. Reading the story, not narrating.
Totally! Due to eye fatigue I can't read print anymore, and abridged versions of such great books are disappointing.
Stewart writes beautifully.
Yes, as at least it gave me a preview of the series. I'll still have to read it in print, though, which is disappointing since I wanted the audio books to save me on eye fatigue.
They should create full, unabridged versions of Mary Renault's and Mary Stewart's books. These abridged versions are unsatisfying.
This is the last book in a group of four: The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment, and The Wicked Day. Mary Stewart crafted a novel and believable version of the Arthur ledgend. It is really too bad that Audible only offers books 2 and 4!!
