Grail

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.

Drought, plague, and war have left the Isle of the Mighty battered and its heart, the beloved Arthur, grievously injured – until a secret relic is brought before the dying King; a Holy Grail that heals his wounds and restores his vigor.

But soon evil enters the royal court in the guise of a beautiful maiden; a soulless, malevolent force capable of seducing the King’s loyal champion, confounding the sage whom some call Merlin, and carrying the sacred Grail – and Arthur’s adored Queen – off into the dark unknown.

And now Arthur faces the greatest challenge of his sovereignty: a quest of recovery that must lead the noble liege through realms of magic and the undead, on a trail that winds inexorably towards a grim confrontation with his most foul nemesis… and his destiny.

Grail by Stephen Lawhead was published by Lion Hudson in May 2013 and is our 28632nd best seller. The ISBN for Grail is 9781782640424.

Publisher's Description

Following Arthur's miraculous healing by Christ's cup from an apparently fatal wound, Arthur sets his heart upon establishing a shrine to the Grail as a symbol of the Summer Realm he has introduced to Britain. But in this account by Gwalchavad (Galahad), Myrddin's (Merlin) old enemy Morgian concocts a devastating betrayal by one of Arthur's dearest companions. Arthur's dream is soon in tatters and the newly won peace and promised prosperity in Britain are threatened with great evil.
