Born of an incestuous relationship between King Arthur and his half-sister, and prophesied by Merlin to kill Arthur, Mordred is stolen away from his mother and raised in secrecy by a kind couple on an isolated Orkney island in the hopes that he will defy his fate.
Mordred, known to history as a traitor and a murderer, is no villain, but a quick-witted young man, with hopes and dreams of his own. But try as he might, Mordred cannot escape Merlin's prophecy.
His mother, the evil sorceress Morgause, tracks her son down and takes him back, then feeds the flames of Mordred's ambition, setting into motion a chain of events that will go down in history - and legend - as father and son are finally forced to confront each other one last time: on the wicked day of destiny, when Arthur's final battle will be fought.

Arthur's tale completed
I love Mary Stewart's version of the Arthurian Legend. This final segment is my least favorite, since it ends in tragedy, but Mary Stewart, like many other re-tellers of this overall story managed to bring hope into the ending in spite of all.
And Derek Perkins, as he did in the previous three, does a WONDERFUL job of bringing the characters, time period and Legend/Saga to life. If some other narrator had been chosen to complete the series, I might well have been content to let my personal series end with The Last Enchantment.
Those new to the series, I strongly suggest that you start with the beginning, The Crystal Cave. And I envy you, you have many hours of enjoyment to look forward to, as you work your way through the series.
