Part of the Pendragon Cycle series
A magnificent tale which begins with the tragedy of Atlantis and the arrival in Britain of King Avallach.
In this world, Celtic chieftains struggle for survival in the twilight of Rome's power, and one heroic figure towers over all, the Prince Taliesin, in whom is the sum of human greatness.
This is a tale of a love that spawns the miracle of Merlin and Arthur and a destiny that is more than a kingdom.

Review by pauliharman
I don't know much about Arthurian myth and legend, so I don't know how much of this is Lawhead's invention and how much he draws on existing myth. But it's interesting enough; it probably helped that I didn't have any preconceptions about any of the characters in the story as it allowed me to immerse myself in a new tale. It flows reasonably well, but I'm not really sure if it's my kind of thing.
