Brings Arthur and his world to life - A man battling for his vision of the future in a brutal age, dragged down by suspicions and magics of the past, surrounded by intrigue, dependent on his skill at war and genius for leadership.
The Winter King, the first volume in the Warlord Chronicles, ended with Arthur winning the great battle of Lugg Vale. Now the southern British kingdoms are allied and Arthur, though not a king himself, is their undisputed leader - a man still striving for his personal vision of a peaceful future. But Arthur has forgotten the ancient Gods... The most famous and argued about of British legends, new-minted, told with a touch of sorcery and a vast amount of scholarly research. (Kirkus UK)
