________________Conn Iggulden called it 'a masterpiece' while The Times hailed it 'a gorgeous, rich retelling of the Arthurian tale' . . . ________________In Britain, Rome's legions are but a distant memory. And Uther Pendragon is dying. Enemies stalk the land. Into this uncertain world a boy is cast - an outsider, plagued by memories of those he's lost.
Under the watchful eye of Merlin, the boy begins his journey to manhood.
He meets another outcast, Guinevere - wild, proud and beautiful. And he is dazzled by Arthur - a warrior who carries the hopes of the people like a flaming torch in the dark. But these are treacherous times, and the fate of Britain rests on a sword's edge.
This young man becomes a lord of war: loved, hated, admired and feared.
He is a man forsaken but not forgotten. He is Lancelot. ________________Set in a 5th century Britain besieged by invading bands of Saxons and Franks, Irish and Picts, Giles Kristian's epic novel tells - in Lancelot's own words - the story of the most revered yet reviled of all Arthur's knights, the warrior who fought at his lord's side - yet stole his wife.
It's is the story of one of the great figures of British myth and legend - a story ready to be re-imagined for our times.
