When Prince Baudouin's infant son, Alexander, grows to manhood, he sets out for Camelot to avenge his father's death. Years before, his father was murdered in cold blood by Alexander's jealous uncle, the King of Cornwall. The young Prince Alexander journeys to Camelot seeking justice, but his path is diverted, first to a dark tower where he is bewitched by the sorceress Morgan LeFay, and then to a beautiful young woman named Alice, who has also experienced many dangers and adventures on her pilgrimages to the Holy Land. As they journey on together, their connection grows beyond their separate purposes and blossoms into love, the greatest mystery of all.

Listener Opinions

    " Mary Stewart lite - a lovely little side story of a young knight who heads off to seek his fortune (and revenge the death of his father) and instead meets a girl and falls in love. I liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 1/31/2014

    " I thoroughly enjoyed returning to Mary Stewart's vision of Arthurian legend and 6th century times! This lovely romance falls in the time period between The Last Enchantment and The Wicked Day. As always, she has used Mallory's Morte d'Artur as well as historical sources as the germ of her story with delightful results. For those like me who find great pleasure in re-tellings and amplifications of the Arthurian tales, this is well worth reading. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wendy | 1/28/2014

    " I like a lot of Mary Stewart's book. They have action, they are fast paced, and they have a little bit of romance without the sex. This book was none of these. It started okay but I just thought it was boring and it didn't have any interesting action or much of a story at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Risa | 1/27/2014

    " It was fine. Nothing great or extraordinary or even rightly exciting. A simple enough love story set in the dark ages. A quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicki | 1/24/2014

    " I was a simple, sweet, predictable story - it was a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie Ricker | 1/17/2014

    " While not nearly as good as Mary Stewart's other Arthurian novels, this is her last novel of Arthur's time, and I'm exceedingly reluctant to leave her world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 1/5/2014

    " I liked the book but after reading the real legend at the end, I would have prefered if she had done the storyline around the original legend. I loved her Merlin/King Arthur series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary | 12/29/2013

    " She can't do history like Georgette Heyer can, but it's a good story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amadee Tous | 12/20/2013

    " I was so disappointed with this book, it certainly was not up to Mary Stewart's high standards. Her characters had no depth, the story telling was lack lustre and I often had the feeling I was reading someone elses work. I completed reading it only in deference to her earlier works to be honest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dottie | 12/1/2013

    " The fourth volume of Mary Stewart's Arthurian trilogy adds to the whole but stands equally well on its own. I love her Arthur books and have read them each at least twice. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jenny | 11/26/2013

    " boring. historical novel from king arthur era. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meghan | 11/26/2013

    " Ordinarily I love Mary Stewart's books; however, this one falls flat. I believe (though I could be mistaken) that this was one of her earlier books that was later re-published after her later successes. Although it is an enjoyable read, many of her other books are far better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karlyne Landrum | 11/14/2013

    " This was a fun read, well researched and interesting. I still like her romances the best, though...... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lynn | 10/16/2013

    " One of Mary Stewart's later efforts. I think she lost her edge somewhere along the way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fi Bowman | 11/10/2012

    " Again, better than I remembered, but that may be an effect of reading it straight after her other Arthurian books with all the events fresh in my mind. Alexander is a bit dumb, but Alice makes up for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katherine | 11/9/2012

    " It's an easy escape. Not quite up to the Merlin trilogy, but still an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 10/22/2012

    " I love Mary Stewart, but this was not one of her better books. BORING! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 10/16/2012

    " The mix of legend and history just didn't work for me in this book. It did spark my interest in learning more about the Frankish Merovingian kings, though. (Predecessors to Charlemagne.) I'm going to read The Crystal Cave next, to see if it still measures up to my 5 star rating from my youth! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathaniel | 2/10/2012

    " Not as exciting as the Merlin trilogy, nor as detailed. Not a lot of character development; you really have to have read the other books to fill in the background. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angie Lisle | 2/4/2012

    " This book was written better than the previous four books in the Merlin series. Language is simple; descriptions aren't flowery; sentence structure is active, rather than passive. Reads quickly and easily. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Bush | 12/7/2011

    " Set in the same world as her Merlin books but a totally independent stand alone story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 William Carter | 11/3/2011

    " Didn't like this book at all with a very boring plot that plods along. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 7/2/2011

    " This was a bit of a disappointment after reading her other Arthurian books. Seems like this was just leftovers that weren't put into the others. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amadee | 1/27/2011

    " not as good as her earlier Arthurian novels, but still a pleasant dip into historical fiction "

    " Oops! I hadn't realized this was part of a saga. So I guess I just started out on book 5...... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan Zimmerman | 5/22/2010

    " The first ¾ of the book were good, the last ¼ far too predictable and pat. I saw the ending rushing towards me with no surprises and no deviations. Kind of sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joyce | 3/7/2010

    " As a HUGE Mary Stewart fan, this did not do it for me. It was o.k. but she has written so many better works previous, this was a disappointment. "
