(Arthur Trilogy, #1)
by
Released: 2000

Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy > historical fantasy, young adult

In this many-layered novel, King Arthur is seen as a mysterious presence influencing not just one time and place, but many. The 100 short chapters are almost like snapshots – not only of the mythic tales of King Arthur, but the earthy, uncomfortable reality of the Middle Ages.
