The fifth book in Jack Whyte's remarkable, authentic Legends of Camelot series.
Heroes united. Camelot threatened. A fight to the end.
In a wintry shelter, hidden from marauders, the warrior Lancelot and Arthur, High King of Britain, conceive of an order of knights to defend the newly united kingdom from all who would destroy it.
Camelot, the High King's seat, is the wonder of the land, and the rule of Arthur and his beautiful queen Guinevere promises to bring about a new era of peace and prosperity.
Yet love tests loyalty to the breaking point, while renewed threats of war in the north force Arthur to look to the defences of his kingdom and take steps to ensure that the dream which he has worked so hard to achieve will not be destroyed.
Discover the most authentic telling of the Arthurian legend ever written.
