I first read this book three years ago and was immediately struck by its clever mix of history and legend. Victor Canning gives a re-working of the King Arthur myth and inspired in me a love of the subject. It is not often that one can find fiction concerning the Dark Ages in Britain, and I recommend this tale to anyone. The only frustrating thing is that it is part of a series and I have not been able to find any of the sequels!
