Arthur: King of the Middle March : Book 3, Paperback / softback Book

Arthur: King of the Middle March : Book 3 Paperback / softback

Part of the Arthur series

Paperback / softback

Description

Medieval life meets Arthurian magic in a novel that transcends boundaries of time and age, appealing to children of 9+ and older readers alike.

The final book in the trilogy from the winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and the Smarties Prize bronze award is a timeless novel. It is 1202, and thousands of knights and footsoldiers are mustering in Venice for the Fourth Crusade.

Among them is young Arthur de Caldicot, whose experiences in the crusades opened his eyes to the realities of war.

Looking into his seeing stone for guidance, he realises that the exploits of King Arthur and his knights, like those of the crusaders, are as grim as they are glorious. War, romance, murder, family quarrels, power and politics combine in a marvellous ending to a trilogy that has utterly captivated its readers.
