Description

Can the Fellowship of the Round Table survive Mordred's treachery?

After years of Arthur's fair rule, evil has come to Camelot. Mordred, Arthur's illegitimate son, is determined to destroy the Round Table and gain the throne for himself. He will use whatever tools he can—mutiny, force, even the rumors of a love between Lancelot and Queen Guenevere. In the end, there is only one place for the battle to be lost or won: the bleak plain of Camlann, where Arthur and his knights of the Round Table fight for their lives.

"Sutcliff is superb in the fluency with which she re-creates a period; her characters come alive . . . and her style is intense and flowing in this grave and poignant conclusion."—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review 

"Other than Malory, I can think of no better introduction to the whole sweep of Arthurian stories."—School Library Journal, starred review
