The second book in an exciting, brand-new Arthurian trilogy
Twelve long, blood-soaked years, have passed since Artor fulfilled his destiny and was crowned the High King of the Britons. Against all odds, Artor has united Celtic Britain and with a last great campaign, has banished the Saxon scourge. The legend of Camlann has begun. But even as Artor's kingdom is at its zenith, even as he has succeeded in conquering all external threats to his rule, his kingdom is being undermined from within. For Artor has chosen Wenhaver (Guenevere) as a second wife. Queen of the Britons, Wenhaver will always love what she cannot have and have what she cannot love, and her bitterness threatens to bring down all those around her. Not only is Artor 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? Or does he let evil go unchecked? The burden of leadership, of power, now rests solely - and heavily - on Artor's shoulders for Myrddion Merlinus, master tactician, guiding light for so many years, has left Artor to his fate. Could all that Artor has fought for, the destiny of Britain, be lost?

Great Arthurian Story
All about relationships
The second to last scene when you realize that Artur is alone
I love most of Hume's characters, but I think that Nimway may be my favorite because of her optimism.
I have read or listened to most of the contemporary Arthurian Legend novels and this trilogy is one of my two favorites. It is, in the end, all about the different relationships between the characters and how those relationships shape events. Listening to this book, I often stopped and replayed a few passages, just so I could relish how beautifully the author describes a particular setting or the emotions of one of her characters. I also love the strength of the Hume's women. This is a book to sit back and listen to slowly so that you can enjoy the beauty of the writing and the message hope that it offers.
