The legends of King Arthur and his knights have passed down through the generations since medieval times. In this spellbinding trilogy, Rosemary Sutcliff recreates all the mystique and mystery of the golden age of Camelot for a new generation.
Whether Sutcliff is calling up the ale houses of Dublin or the battle-torn moors of Scotland, her descriptive language and dialogue transport readers back to a time and place not usually visited in young people's fiction
The late Sutcliffe's take on the legend will appeal to both children and adults . . . This is great swashbuckling stuff, full of adventure and romance but with a darker edge than one would expect
Told in magnificent, rolling prose
