Arthur

Full Product Description

The legends of King Arthur have captured the imaginations of many authors, but never have they been told with strength and resonance, passion and richness as Stephen Lawhead’s 5 book series – The Pendragon Cycle.

The Sword of Britain. While many strove to claim it, one hand alone could remove the blade of Kingship from its stone sheath. He was Arthur.

He came – a raw youth among ambitious lords too blind to recognize their king. He came – to a Britain divided, ripe for conquest by barbarian hordes. The songs of Taliesin the master bard had foretold his rising. The vision of Merlin the prophet would guide him.

Under Arthur, by wisdom as much as might, Britain would unite. Through Arthur would arise a kingdom of peace, prosperity, and righteousness – the long-awaited Kingdom of Summer. Yet, in the midst of flourishing virtue, an evil would arise to challenge Britain’s most brilliant Crown.

Arthur by Stephen R. Lawhead was published by Lion Hudson in May 2013 and is our 7788th best seller. The ISBN for Arthur is 9781782640387.

Publisher's Description

Arthur is the third book of The Pendragon Cycle: a magnificent epic set against the baackcloth of Roman Britain and the legends of Arthur and lost Atlantis. "It is the eve of Christ Mass, and the noblemen have come to Londinium to hold council - to essay who among them might become High King. Fifteen years have come and gone since the sword was first placed there. A young man stands grim-faced, gazing at the sword thrust deep into the stone...hesitant, uncertain. 'Take it, Arthur,' Merlin tells him..." So the story begins - a tale of high hope and bitter endeavour, of loyalty and treachery, of spiritual quest and the winning of a kingdom - a story whose end, as its beginning, is shrouded in mystery...
