Readers are loving ARTHUR . . .

'By far the best Arthurian story/writing/beautiful masterpiece I have had the honour to read.’ *****

‘Brilliant writing, excellent characterization, and immersive storytelling.’ *****

‘I've adored this trilogy.
The best re-telling of Arthur's legend I've read, and I'd include Cornwell's in that.’ *****

‘The ending is
bloody and glorious, and very well done. One last thunder of hooves, one last trill of the trumpets. I'm just gutted it's over, I could have read on and on.’ *****

Enough originality and sheer writing talent to make it a literary must.’ *****

‘This is proper storytelling that does not let down those characters of legend.’ *****

Years have passed since the clash of shield-walls echoed across the land . . .

The Saxons are now the lords of Britain. And yet the bards still sing of Arthur - 'In our darkest time, when we need him most, shall he come again.'

Ageing mercenary Beran has no love of bards' songs. Nor of people. Unless they are paying him to steal or kill. Now he has been ordered to murder a boy. But this is no ordinary child. The son of King Constantine and the grandson of High King Ambrosius, this boy could be the saviour of Britain . . . if he lives.

Betraying his companions and returning to a world he believed he'd forsaken, Beran vows to take the boy to the one place that still holds out against the invader: Camelot.

Hunted by Saxons, Queen Morgana and those he deceived, he will seek the help of Guivret, called the Little King, and the Saracen, Palamedes who once rode beneath Arthur's banner. They will meet the doomed lovers, Tristan and Isolde. And they will fight for their lives and for each other.

For if there's to be any hope for Britain, Beran must deliver the boy to Camelot. And to do that, he must come to terms with his past . . .

Arthur is the breathtaking new novel from the author of the bestselling Lancelot, called 'a masterpiece' by Conn Iggulden . . .
