The best-selling author of the acclaimed Merlin Trilogy returns to the magical world of King Arthur and Camelot - to tell a story of daring adventure, unexpected love, and unsurpassed enchantment.
Eager, burning, and young, Alexander has come of age to take vengeance on the treacherous King of Cornwall who murdered his father. He sets off toward Camelot to seek justice from King Arthur, only to be diverted by the beautiful and sensual Morgan le Fay, Arthur's sister. Using her wiles and her enchantments, Morgan persuades the young prince to attempt a theft of the Holy Grail. He is unaware her motives are of the darkest nature.
Motherless daughter of a royal duke, Alice has lived a life of lively adventure, accompanying her father on his yearly pilgrimages. Now, on her father's final visit to Jerusalem, she comes under the protection of a young prince whose brothers were murdered, a prince who is in possession of an enchanted silver cup believed to be the mysterious Holy Grail itself.
Thus the stage is set for two young seekers to meet - and to find not what they are searching for but, instead, the greatest treasure of all: love.
