Publisher's Summary

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.

Very Pleased

Any additional comments?

Love the movie, which lead me to this book. Great author--he really did an amazing job adapting the screenplay. Hard to go wrong with this cast of characters, and I loved the way that they're used here. I'm really pleased with this take on the traditional legend; I find it both plausible and more historically possible/probable. Oh, and this is by far my favorite take on Guinevere.
