Meanwhile, Arthur has his own concerns: Gatty, his betrothal, his dream of finding his mother, his relationship with his violent father and his churlish foster-brother. When he finally returns to England, all he has lost and all he has won come together. War, romance, murder, family quarrels, power politics, the conflict between Christianity and Islam: all these are elements in a story packed with drama and colour. Its vivid picture of daily life in medieval times is shot through with earthy comedy and the magic of the Arthurian legends. Darker and deeper than the first two books, this is a marvellous ending to a trilogy that has utterly captivated its readers.

"The last in a trilogy but it stands perfectly on its own and it's beautifully read by Sam West." (Sunday Express)
"Read by the excellent Sam West, a children's book that adults will find compelling." (CHOICE
"Samuel West's expressive reading makes the story flow, with the only interruption being snatches of shivery music like falling leaves. A superb audio book for the over 11-s." (Daily Telegraph)
