Product description


There are typescripts...that send a tingle up my spine, that trap me in their world, hanging around in my mind long after, setting a kind of benchmark of writing...I am the Blade is one of these. Wholly original...full of richness (Books for Keeps)

This new and original take on the old enchanting story (Carousel)

One of the best new Arthurian adventures I've read for a long time. A terrific breakneck tale (Amanda Craig The Times)

A dense and complex tale with many strong elements. With intelligent prose, interesting references, high adventure and a love story, this should prove to be a popular and rewarding read (School Librarian)

A riveting version of the Arthur story...a thrilling adventure that captures your attention and won't let it go. Thoroughly recommended (Write Away)

[An] atmospheric mixture of adventure, humour, sophistication and nail-biting fight scenes. (The Times)

Praise for his adult novels: 'Wonderfully well-written.' (Time Out)

A modern fairy story ... Buxton is possibly the best of the new supernatural writers. (Phil Rickman)

'More than just a historical novel ... It succeeds in being a novel set in the past. This is achieved by Buxton's confident control over the many subtle strokes which make up his layered narrative, and by his adroit handling of the story.' (Times Literary Supplement)

'One of the best new riffs on Arthurian legend... the grittiest as well as one of the most exciting new renditions of the myth.' (Times (Amanda Craig))

Book Description

A thrilling first part of a two book sequence from an outstanding adult writer new to children's books.
