King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table—and the chivalry, romance, heroism, and betrayal at the heart of the legendary tale—have gripped the imagination of the world for centuries.

In King Arthur, young Arthur is given a seemingly impossible mission: to defeat a bloodthirsty Saxon conqueror and his army, a dozen times the size of Arthur’s own. Haunted by Merlin and tormented by the fact that his small band of knights has only a slim chance at survival, Arthur is determined to fulfill his duty to the Roman Empire, his family, and Great Britain. In the midst of their mission, when Arthur and Lancelot, his greatest knight, rescue the exquisite Guinevere from captivity, the enchanting tale of the royal lovers begins.

King Arthur is a story of catastrophic defeat, devastating victory, and magical romance.

    " As books based on movies go, this one wasn't too bad. There is some more character development. The editing at the end of the book, however, is bad, for characters who are alive after the battle are dead and then suddenly alive again. It is a little confusing. "
