Y drydedd nofel mewn cyfres sydd wedi ei lleoli ym Mhrydain yng nghyfnod y Rhufeiniaid ac yn cynnwys elfennau o chwedloniaeth Geltaidd wrth sôn am hanes Taliesin, Myrddin ac Arthur. Cyhoeddwyd gyntaf Ionawr 1989.

The third novel in The Pendragon Cycle, a magnificent epic set against the backcloth of Roman Britain and Celtic legend which spans the periods of the heroes Taliesin, Merlin and Arthur. First published in January 1989.
This is the third book from the `Pendragon Cycle` and tells the legend of Arthur, Merlin and the struggle to free Britain from the Barbarian hordes invading the land. The story is narrated using the point of view of three minor characters, each having a very different role in King Arthur's court.

Pelleas, steward to Myrddin (Merlin) begins the tale with an account of Arthur's retrieval of the Sword of Britain from the stone. Dismissed as trickery, the minor kings will not give fealty to Arthur and support his claim to the title of High King.

Bedwyr takes up the story later on and tells how he cared for Arthur since babyhood and became a trusted friend and member of the Cymbrogi (companions of the heart). He describes Arthur's attempts to win over the Saecsens and the battles fought against the barbarians in order to repel them and bring peace to the country.

Aneirin is brought by his father to serve at Arthur's court and placed with Myrddin as his apprentice. Aneirin was born when peace prevailed throughout the land, but treachery and intrigue rear up once again and old scores have to be settled when the barbarians threaten to overwhelm Britain.

This is the first book I have read about King Arthur, and it surprised me greatly. I then realised that although I have known the story since childhood, it has been the pretty, sanitised version of the `Hollywood' era. This version is a revelation to me and I have enjoyed it immensely. However, I found the ending a tiny bit disappointing. There is an unresolved mystery and the characters stories are tied up too neatly. This is done with a finality that seems to exclude the possibility of a sequel, yet I know there is one.

Stephen Lawhead is a skilled author, weaving history and fantasy together to make an enjoyable read. His imaginative description of how our ancestors lived, loved and fought and his attention to detail brings to life this exciting episode in our country's history.
