Taliesin

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.

It was a time of legend, when the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britiain. While across a vast sea, bloody war shattered a peace that had flourished for two thousand years in the doomed kingdom of Atlantis.

‘Taliesin’ is the remarkable adventure of Charis, the Atlantean princess who escaped the terrible devastation of her homeland, and of the fabled seer and druid prince Taliesin, singer at the dawn of the age. It is a story of an incomparable love that joined two worlds amid the fires of chaos, and spawned the miracles of Merlin… and Arthur the king.

Taliesin by Stephen R. Lawhead was published by Lion Hudson in May 2013 and is our 23868th best seller. The ISBN for Taliesin is 9781782640363.

Publisher's Description

A magnificent tale which begins with the tragedy of Atlantis and the arrival in Britain of King Avallach. In this world, Celtic chieftains struggle for survival in the twilight of Rome's power, and one heroic figure towers over all, the Prince Taliesin, in whom is the sum of human greatness. This is a tale of a love that spawns the miracle of Merlin and Arthur and a destiny that is more than a kingdom.
