Pendragon by Stephen Lawhead

Stephen Lawhead's magnificent and gripping epic. In Taliesin, A Druid prince and bard fathers a great kingdom through his marriage to Charis, Lady of the Lake, daughter of the drowned king of Atlantis, one of the Fair Folk. His son, the legendary warrior bard, takes on the mission of laying the foundations of a new order - the Kingdom of Summer in Merlin. It is Merlin who guides the young king who is to fulfil the dreams of his people in Arthur. Pendragon and Grail fill out Arthur's story, recounting the adventures which lead to Arthur's eventual crowning as Pendragon, and the gripping tale of Arthur's battle to retain control of the Holy Grail, the healing cup of Christ which comes to symbolise the peace and prosperity of his reign. Throughout, the Celts are portrayed as a people emerging from Roman domination, embracing Christianity and establishing their rule in the face of invading Saxons. The Pendragon Cycle is a feast of sustained storytelling power to inspire readers like no other version of this entrancing mythology.


Lawhead brilliantly creates an authentic and vivid Arthurian Britain. * Publishers Weekly * `Engrossing fantasy.' * The Bookseller * `One of the best works of Arthurian fantasy.' * Waterstones *
