The tale begins in Dark Age Britain, a land where Arthur has been banished and Merlin has disappeared, where a child-king sits unprotected on the throne, where religion vies with magic for the souls of the people. It is to this desperate land that Arthur returns, a man at once utterly human and truly heroic: a man of honor, loyalty, and amazing valor; a man who loves Guinevere more passionately than he should; a man whose life is at once tragic and triumphant.

The book is solid but the beginning was very slow and hard to follow. Trust me when I say....get through the first 2 hours and than the book is gold! the next 2 books in this series are both 5 stars from the start. Jonathan Keeble outstanding performance made the book bearable in the beginning and is the only reason I did not return it.
