    Arthor has pulled Excalibur from the stone, and Merlin has revealed to him his royal lineage. Now he must win the loyalty of the tribal chieftains who admire his courage and ferocity in the fight but deplore the Christian God he worships.

    Arthor must take his frail power, his perilous order of warriors, and conquer his own land. But his soul is wracked with a secret of deep horror: his sister Morgeu carries within her their incest child, conceived through trickery and intended to destroy Arthor.

    Amid towering supernatural forces and ancient magic, the epic story of the legendary king is retold in glowing colours with a new and vigorous passion against a superbly drawn backdrop of ancient Britain.
