Spellbinding and ever–fresh, The Letter for the King follows the quest of Tiuri – a courageous young squire and knight-to-be – who must deliver a secret letter of huge importance to the King, at any cost. This beloved classic of Dutch fantasy, originally published in 1962, combines masterful storytelling and unforgettable characters with extraordinary clarity of imagination. Reminiscent of Arthurian legends and Tolkienian sagas, and recently adapted as a major Netflix drama series, Tiuri’s mission continues to mesmerise readers around the world.
Now a Major Netflix Series
When Tiuri answers a desperate call for help, he finds himself on a perilous mission that could cost him his life. He must deliver a secret letter to the King who lives across the Great Mountains - a letter upon which the future of the entire realm depends.
It means abandoning his home, breaking all the rules and leaving everything behind - even the knighthood he has dreamed of for so long. The fate of a kingdom depends on just one person...
He must trust no one. He must keep his true identity secret. Above all, he must never reveal what is in the letter.
