Synopsis

Arthur by Stephen Lawhead

It is the eve of Christ Mass, and the noblemen have come to Londinium to hold council - to essay who among them might become High King. Fifteen years have come and gone since the sword was first placed there. A young man stands grim-faced, gazing at the sword thrust deep into the stone...hesitant, uncertain. 'Take it, Arthur,' Merlin tells him... So the story begins - a tale of high hope and bitter endeavour, of loyalty and treachery, of spiritual quest and the winning of a kingdom - a story whose end, as its beginning, is shrouded in mystery...
