This final volume in the tremendous Arthurian saga by Gerald Morris finds a plot unfolding in the court of Arthur that is determined to set Lancelot up as an enemy and to revive old wounds. Guinevere and Lancelot are lured to a rendezvous by false letters and then are accused of having a tryst. Decades before Guinevere and Lancelot had betrayed Arthur but supposedly the matter has been laid to rest over the years. An army begins to move across the land in the name of Arthur, laying waste to village after village and farm after farm. The people are turning against Arthur as a result and Arthur is unaware that his people are being turned against him. In the midst of it all, Sir Terence and Sir Gawain set out to discover what treachery is afoot across the land. As they travel and gather information, they are about to find themselves facing great personal loss. The valiant knights stay true and seek the perpetrators of these wrongs. A wonderful story of the Middle Ages with its chivalry and power struggles and a touch of magic. 285 pages Ages 10 and up ISBN: 978-0547-144207
