Rating: 4.8 stars over 4 reviews
Price: 3.99
Description: A tale of timeless love, heroic courage . . . and a race to change the course of destiny itself.  I couldn't put it down.  This is King Arthur as you've never seen him before.  --Anna Elliott, author of the Twilight of Avalon trilogy.

By the autumn of 537 AD, all who are loyal to King Arthur have retreated to a small parcel of land in north Wales. They are surrounded on all sides, heavily outnumbered, and facing near certain defeat.

But Myrddin and Nell, two of the King's companions, have a secret that neither has ever been able to face: each has seen that on a cold and snowy day in December, Saxon soldiers sent by Modred will ambush and kill King Arthur.

And together, they must decide what they are willing to do, and to sacrifice, to avert that fate.

Reviews: "I absolutely loved this unique and very different version of the King Arthur legend. The story is told through the eyes of Myrddin, one of Arthur's knights, and Nell, a young former nun. Both share visions of Arthur's coming death at the battle of Camlann, and unite in a race to change Arthur's destiny and the future of Britain. The story is fast-paced and yet beautifully told, the growing romance between Myrddin and Nell is compelling, and the history of a dark and brutal--and yet heroic--time leaps from the page. Highly recommended."
