King of the Middle March

(2003)
(The third book in the Arthur Trilogy series)
A novel by

 

"Astonishingly brilliant."
Anne Fine


"I was spellbound."
Philip Pullman


Venice, 1201. Thousands of soldiers are mustering in readiness for what will be the Fourth Crusade. Young Arthur de Caldicot, squire to Lord Stephen, is among them. It is thrilling to be part of this great gathering; but his eyes are soon opened to the realities of warfare and politics. The Arthur who returns home two years later has looked in his seeing stone and realized that the exploits of King Arthur and his knights are no more glorious than those of the crusaders, and that the Holy Grail is elusive. But he has other things on his mind, too he wrestles with difficult relationships with his father, the violent Sir William, and his churlish elder brother, he dreams of finding his mother, he worries about his impending betrothal and looks forward to being lord of his own manor of Catmole. This is a vivid and enchanting picture of daily life in medieval times, shot through with the magic of the Arthurian legends. We meet again all our favourite characters and many new ones. Murder, warfare, romance, tragedy, the complexity of the conflict between Christianity and Islam, all these are elements in a story filled with drama and colour. Longer and more substantial than the first two books, this is a marvellous ending to a trilogy that has captivated its readers.
