‘It’s a slice of history that’s totally, utterly believable. Magnificent’ – http://www.booksmonthly.co.uk

The Dark Ages: a time of chaos and bloodshed… The Roman legions have long deserted the Isles and the despotic Uther Pendragon, High King of Celtic Britain, is nearing death, his kingdom torn apart by the jostling for his throne.

Of unknown parentage, Artorex is growing up in the household of his foster father Lord Ector. One day, three strangers arrive and arrange for Artorex to be taught the martial skills of the warrior; blade and shield, horse and fire, pain and bravery.

When they return, years later, Artorex is not only trained in the arts of battle, he is also a married man. But, if he is to fulfil his destiny and become the High King of the Britons, Artorex must find Uther’s crown and sword.

Reviews

Praise for M. K. Hume: 'Hume brings the bloody, violent, conniving world vividly to life...will appeal to those who thrill to Game of Thrones and other tales of intersecting, ever-warring, noble lineages
