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.
At the dawn of his reign, a young king must prove his greatness… or lose his realm.
Arthur is King – but darkest evil has descended upon Britain’s shores in many guises. Fragile alliances fray and tear, threatening all the noble liege has won with his wisdom and his blood.
In this black time of plague and pestilence, Arthur’s most trusted counselor Myrddin – the warrior, bard, and kingmaker whom legend will name Merlin – is himself to be tested on a mystical journey through his own extraordinary past. So Arthur must stand alone against a great and terrible adversary. For only thus can he truly be immortality – and the name he will treasure above all other: Pendragon.
Pendragon by Stephen Lawhead was published by Lion Hudson in May 2013 and is our 28553rd best seller. The ISBN for Pendragon is 9781782640400.

Pendragon and Grail fill out Arthur's story, recounting the adventures which lead to Arthur's eventual crowning as Pendragon, and the gripping tale of Arthur's battle to retain control of the Holy Grail, the healing cup of Christ which comes to symbolise the peace and prosperity of his reign. Throughout, the Celts are portrayed as a people emerging from Roman domination, embracing Christianity and establishing their rule in the face of invading Saxons.
The Pendragon Cycle is a feast of sustained storytelling power to inspire readers like no other version of this entrancing mythology.
