Publisher's Summary

From the author of The Merlin Prophecy, the historical trilogy that "appeals to those who thrill to Game of Thrones" (Kirkus Reviews) - the third installment in the epic, action-packed story of King Arthur.
Celtic Britain is on the brink of collapse, and the kingdom's bloodiest days are upon it. For many years, the people of Briton have enjoyed peace and prosperity under the reign of King Arthur. He has ruled with dignity, honor, and humility. Arthur is now weakening with age, however, and the seeds of discontent are being sown.
Seeking to cleanse the land of Christian belief, dissenters need a symbol with which to legitimize their pagan claim and gather malcontents together into a cohesive weapon. They seize upon the ancient cup of Bishop Lucius of Glastonbury as a way of fragmenting Arthur' s hard-earned kingdom. Soon it emerges that the ultimate threat to Arthur's rule lies far closer to home; he is betrayed by his own kin. Celt will slay Celt and the river will run with blood. Will all be lost, or can King Arthur conquer the mounting forces before it' s too late?
