Overview

The mythic saga of King Arthur that forever changed the way the legend of Arthur is told!

Britain is in the middle of the Dark Ages. With Roman civilization a dim memory and the Saxons braying at the borders, Britain is in desperate need of a strong leader. The saga begins with The Winter King. Arthur has been banished and Merlin has disappeared. A child-king sits unprotected on the throne. In this volume, Cornwell introduces us to Arthur, a man of honor, loyalty, and amazing valor; a man who loves Guinevere more passionately than he should; a man whose life is at once tragic and triumphant.

In volume two of The Warlord Trilogy, Enemy of God, Arthur has defeated the last holdouts of civil war in southern Britain, and the kingdoms of Britain are finally united. But this newfound balance is threatened by Merlin’s intrigues and his ceaseless quest for the last of the Thirteen Treasures of Britain, and by the conflict between ancient religion and the new Christianity.

The third and final installment, Excalibur, is a monumental story of love and war. Betrayed by his true love, Guinevere, Arthur must face his enemies—who were once his friends—in final, mortal combat. He must also face his most daunting challenge of all.

It takes an extraordinary writer to make an old story as fresh and compelling as the first time it was told. Superbly written and peopled with the familiar characters of legend, The Warlord Trilogy is a fantastic retelling of the standard Arthurian legend. The bloodcurdling adventures, intrigue, and wars are brought to life by reader Tim Pigott-Smith.
