This brilliant modern re-telling of the timeless tales of King Arthur and his Knights is a "must read." Not only is the text vibrant and fresh, the author entrances the reader into the real lives of the characters as she reveals a world of harsh, brutal reality and enchanting, mystical sorcery.
This epic novel is beautifully illustrated by the author and wonderfully detailed. It is also graphically portrayed as the writing is gritty, lyrical and sexy. Set in the godless times of the fifth century this classic tale (or is it a tale) spans three worlds: The mystical Realm of Avalon, where the 'Fair Folk' dwell; the supernatural lands of the 'Underworld' where the Demon King, Lord Pwyll resides, and the habitual world of men.
Who are the mystifying 'Fair Folk' that appear from the shimmering ether in the darkest hours of night, in the heart of Dumnonia? Why was Rhys the carpenter the only one awake to witness their perplexing appearance while the entire village was asleep as if gripped by death? Fascinate yourself with the voice of the 'Fair Folk,' as the author brilliantly introduces their ancient mesmerising, long forgotten language, which the reader can find great enjoyment by discovering it in this novel.
King Arthur is the knight of two faiths as he is torn between both the Pagan and Christian religions. He is also caught in a grim struggle between betrayal and honour of the Knights of the Round Table. He must do battle with the Northern Lords and the Picts of the Wilderness Lands, both greedy for land. He must also take up arms against Lord Pwyll, the Demon King of the 'Underworld' and against his own half sister Morgan Le Fay, the mistress of 'Fate and Death' who resentfully opposes him.
This Arthurian Legend compiles the true sagas of love, violence, mystery, betrayal, sorcery, loyalty and enchantments. Good versus evil and light versus darkness bound in a cloak of occult lore.
