Bestseller John James returns with this witty, serpentine novel, which weaves the Arthurian legends into the wider fabric of the struggle for Europe.

Gwenevere, Arthur's Saxon wife, is a problem. As the dynastic cement between the British and the Saxons, her marriage to Arthur will result in a child that will unite both sides. At least, that would have been the plan, had the Great Duke Arthur not died and left the petty kings of Britain to squabble over his title.

Only Morvran, Arthur's chief fixer, has the wit to see that the Fourth Gwenevere is the key to maintaining a crumbling peace. But when she is abducted, it seems that all hopes might disappear with her.

For, in a world where swords and horses have names of honour, where poets speak as oracles of a shifting truth and the raiding of Saxon warriors is set to ruin Britain, perhaps it's only the Fourth Gwenevere herself who has the real solution?

MEDIA REVIEWS
A lovely book. Its story is suitably adventurous and exciting and for anyone with the slightest interest in the Matter of Britain this entertaining tale is recommended reading * A Fantastical Librarian *
A gripping tale of treachery, bloodshed, and plague . . . Morvran is like a fantasy equivalent of Breq, the starship narrator of Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice (this year's Hugo Award winner). Readers who enjoyed puzzling their way through that tale of slaughter will find much to enjoy here * Amazing Stories *
A wonderful, different and unfamiliar take on Arthurian legend ... a pretty awesome read that comes recommended. * Fictional Hangout *
