A broken and shattered knight hides from the world and from the man who destroyed him. Betrayed by the man he loved, Lancelot vows that the only way he will return is to see the heart of his king staining the floors of Camelot.
Then one day, a gentler soul tracks down the tormented knight and sets to repairing a mind so damaged, there may never be a way back. When Tancred finds Lancelot, he is barely recognisable.
The revenant of a once powerful knight, with a heart which burns so intensely, it is only the pain which gives life.
But Tancred is not going to lose a soulmate he has spent a lifetime waiting to find.
Lancelot will return and his sword is thirsty for blood. The power of the Grail and the fury of Excalibur are turned on the enemies of Camelot in a race to save a kingdom and a brotherhood bound in blood.
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!’
