“I was once called, Wolf. Now I am damned to a half life of madness, grieving and broken. If I have to return to my King, he will want the greatest Knight of Camelot, but I am not that creature. I am a man who has learnt to hate what he once loved. How can I help my betrayer kill my fey father, even if it is to save Camelot and her people?”
Lancelot, alone and shattered is found by the only person capable of saving what’s left of his mind. When the damaged knight finally manages to scrape his awareness together he reluctantly returns to Camelot, only to find Arthur almost as broken.
The two men must face each other, over a vast gulf of betrayal in order to confront their enemies for the last time.
As they travel from Camelot, into the Land of the Dead and on to Albion, they remember why and how they became one all those years ago. Lancelot discovers that the path of the warrior is not just about killing, but also about compassion and there are some things that you just cannot escape, no matter how far you run.
This is the third in the series of The Knights of Camelot and rounds out the first part of Lancelot’s journey. It is story where you feel him truly carrying the weight of his world and like the best fantasy fiction, he must travel to some dark places before reaching the light.
This unique and some would say controversial take on the Arthurian myths and legends is clearly well researched but given such a twist as to make them both fresh and exciting. The adult content of the book may disturb some but we are proud to bring to the marketplace a character which is strong, utterly deadly and discovers that happiness for him is in the arms of a man, the question is… which man?
This is what we said about previous books – This series, The Knights of Camelot, is proving to be both exciting and heartbreaking. The relentless onslaught of action is reminiscent of the TV series Spartacus, while the emotions bring to mind the pathos of American Angles. With Camelot threatened, Avalon under siege and King Arthur leaning more heavily than ever on Lancelot we can’t help but wonder what will happen next. This is part Greek tragedy, part Arthurian myth and utterly unique. A brave new advance in popular fiction, with a men unafraid to admit to their love and homosexuality.
From the bestselling author of The Knights of Camelot series comes the third thrilling instalment… ‘This story is a cross between an adult version of ‘Merlin’ and ‘Brokeback Mountain’ – WOW!’
