The second book in an exciting, brand-new Arthurian trilogy …

Twelve long, blood-soaked years have passed since Arthur fulfilled his destiny and was crowned High King. Against all odds, Arthur has united Celtic Britain and with a last great campaign has banished the Saxon scourge from his lands.

The legend of Camlann has begun …

But even as Arthur’s kingdom is at its zenith, even as he has succeeded in conquering the external threats to his rule, his kingdom is being undermined from within. For Arthur has chosen Wenhaver as his queen and his second wife. Wenhaver will always love what she cannot have and have what she cannot love, and her bitterness threatens to bring down those around her.

Not only is Arthur betrayed by the one person he should be able to trust, he has also learned of appalling perversion at the heart of his kingdom. He must make a terrible choice. Does he commit a deed that leaves him open to comparison with the despotic Uther Pendragon, the evil High King who preceded him on the throne, or does he let evil go unchecked?

The burden of leadership and power now rests solely—and heavily— on Arthur’s shoulders, for Myrddion Merlinus, the master tactician, who has guided his way for so many years, has left Arthur to his fate.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A particularly intriguing subplot juxtaposes two beautiful women: the shallow and selfish Wenhaver and the logical, caring, and powerful Nimue. Hume deftly navigates the Arthurian legends, populating them with likable and despicable characters, and casting them in a fully realized historical setting.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Each character…is fully drawn, with secrets, desires, and often noble hopes. The dialogue fittingly shifts from stilted formalities to raw insults. A saga dark in aspect, rich in detail and mythic in dimension.”
