The Last Knight of Albion

The Last Knight of Albion

(1987)
A novel by

 
Twenty years ago, King Arthur took his last breath in the company of a young knight named Percevale. Ever since then, Percevale has been on a self-imposed mission to find and wreak revenge on Mordred - the man responsible not only for the death of the king but for the collapse of Arthur's once-majestic empire.

During his quest, Percevale has led a simple if unfulfilling existence - but now his world is changing in both of those respects. His chance encounter with a young lady named Elaine sets the aging knight off on a path that is exciting and refreshingly different but also forces him to compromise his principles and put his life at stake.

The fate of The Last Knight of Albion becomes intertwined with a group of complacent townspeople, an ambitious barbarian king, and a mysterious hermit. By the time his story runs its course, Percevale has finally discovered what is really important in life - and the reader has lived with him through a tale that is much more than just another Arthurian fantasy.
