A magnificent epic of cataclysmic upheaval and heroic love in a breathless age of mythic wonders
It was a time of legend, when the last shadows of the mighty Roman conqueror faded from the captured Isle of Britain. While, across a vast sea, bloody war shattered a peace that had flourished for two thousand years in the doomed kingdom of Atlantis.
From the award-winning author of THE DRAGON KING TRILOGY comes a majestic tale of breathtaking scope and haunting beauty. It is the remarkable adventure of Charis—the courageous princess from Atlantis who escapes the terrible devastation of her land—and of the fabled seer and druid prince Taliesin, singer at the dawn of the age. A story of an incomparable love that joins two astonishing worlds amid the fires of chaos, and spawns the miracles of Merlin . . . and Arthur the king!
“Reminiscent of C. S. Lewis . . . Highly recommended.”
Fresh take on two stories
Love this it is a fresh taken to mythical stories that we have grown up with. The book does start up a little bit slow. The first hundred pages or so I almost thought about quitting. But it really speeds up and gets good. I love the story because it takes the story about the city of Atlantis in merges it with the Arthurian legend.
This was a fantastic book! I'm looking forward to the rest of the series! This seems to be a more accurate rendition of the are Arthurian Legend.
