About the Author

Jack Whyte is a Scots-born, award-winning Canadian author whose poem, The Faceless One, was featured at the 1991 New York Film Festival. The Camulod Chronicles is his greatest work, a stunning retelling of one of our greatest legends: the making of King Arthur's Britain. He lives in British Columbia, Canada.


In his third, lengthy installment of the Camulod Chronicles, Whyte continues his intelligent and vigorous retelling of the Arthurian legend, carefully grounding his version in historical fifth-century Britain. The narrator is Caius Merlyn Britannicus, who became the great sorcerer Merlyn, and who introduces himself as the grandson and nephew, respectively, of the chroniclers Caius Britannicus (The Skystone) and Publius Varrus (The Singing Sword). After the Roman legions abandon Britain, young Merlyn and his princely cousin Uther Pendragon are raised as soldiers and commanders, so they are prepared when hordes of invaders eventually arrive on Britain's unprotected shores. The chaos enhances the growing influence of Christianity as the young church struggles to establish its doctrines and secure a following. Meanwhile, Merlyn struggles to determine whether his beloved cousin Uther is the perpetrator of several black deeds that change the course of his own life and the whole of British history. This novel ends with the arrival of Arthur, bastard son of Uther and King Lot's wife, Ygraine. The excitement here, as in the previous installments, lies in Whyte's expert use of rich period details‘early British military tactics, religious philosophies and technologies‘to bring the era and its people to vibrant life. This isn't the usual Arthurian tale with a fantasy gloss; in graphic realism lies its fascination, and its power. (Sept.)

"From the building blocks of history and the mortar of reality, Jack Whyte has built Arthur's world, and showed us the bone beneath the flesh of legend." --Diana Gabaldon"The very best storytellers keep their readers glued to the story with plot, character, and a keen sense of the dramatic. . . . Whyte breathes life into the Arthurian myths by weaving the reality of history into it." --Tony Hillerman
