A unique perspective of the Arthurian legend, narrated in the first person by the great king himself. In Godwin's story, set in the 5th century amid the collapse of the Roman Empire in Britain, we discover a painfully mortal Arthur, flawed and fallible with a sympathetic distaste for the necessary cruelties of war.
