This the third book of Malory's Knights of Albion.
As the restored Roman Empire raises an army against him, King Arthur calls his allies from every corner of the
. Lucan, The Black Wolf of the North, also seeks his wife who has run off with Rufio, the Roman scion of the corrupt Malconi clan. Rufio's mother, Zalmyra seeks to stop them with every demonic force she can summon.
This is a fabulous what-if book. With fantasy you would expect of a two time winner of the British Fantasy Award, this is a gripping narrative based on character-driven action and good dialogue based on a fictional sequel to Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur. If you love historical fantasy well-written and full of action, you may not be able to put it down or find yourself heading to the bookstore to get the previous volumes. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
