More About the Author

Rosemary Sutcliff was born in Surrey, the daughter of a naval officer. At the age of two she contracted the progressively wasting Still's disease, and hence spent most of her life in a wheelchair. Her first children's book was published in 1950, and from then on she devoted her time and talents to the writing of children's historical novels, which have placed her name high in the field of contemporary children's literature. Rosemary received an OBE in the 1975 Birthday Honours List.

Rosemary Sutcliff's novels about Roman Britain have won much critical acclaim. The best-known of these is her The Eagle of the Ninth trilogy, of which the second book in the trilogy, The Lantern Bearers, was awarded the 1959 Carnegie Medal.

Sadly, Rosemary died in 1992 at the age of 72.

Review

"Told in magnificent, rolling prose" (The Times)

"Sutcliff [is] a wonderful writer of historical novels" (Birmingham Post)

"The late Sutcliffe's take on the legend will appeal to both children and adults . . . This is great swashbuckling stuff, full of adventure and romance but with a darker edge than one would expect" (South Wales Argus)

"Whether Sutcliff is calling up the ale houses of Dublin or the battle-torn moors of Scotland, her descriptive language and dialogue transport readers back to a time and place not usually visited in young people's fiction" (Booklist)

Book Description

Rosemary Sutcliff's famous and captivating novels based on the legends of King Arthur, brought together in one spellbinding trilogy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The King Arthur Trilogy 12 April 2014
By Jasmin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book exceeded my expectations. I bought it for my grandson, started to read it and couldn't put it down. I was immersed in the legend and the lives of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.
Theres no one quite like Rosemary Sutcliff who can weave a spell and take the reader into the books she writes. Her prose is exemplary, her descriptive narrative just beautiful.
Now I will have to buy another copy for my grandson. I'm keeping mine !
