Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A series that promises to provide historic plausibility to the legend of King Arthur...the best of its type in the near quarter of a century since Mary Stewarts version of these legends burst upon the publishing scene.”—The Chattanooga Times

With Uther, Jack Whyte, author of the richly praised Camulod Chronicles, has given us a portrait of Uther Pendragon, Merlyn's shadow--his boyhood companion and closest friend. And the man who would sire the King of the Britons.

From the trials of boyhood to the new cloak of adult responsibility, we see Uther with fresh eyes. He will travel the length of the land, have adventures, and, through fate or tragedy, fall in love with the one woman he must not have. Uther is a compelling love story and, like the other books in the Camulod Chronicles, a version of the legend that is more realistic than anything that has been available to readers before.

“Perhaps not since the early 1970s, with Mary Stewarts The Crystal Cave and The Hollow Hills, have the Roman Empire and the Arthurian legends been intertwined with as much skill and authenticity.”—Publishers Weekly on The Skystone (starred review)

Synopsis:

The seventh entry in Whyte's critically acclaimed Camulod Chronicles provides a fresh and appealing look at the other major character in the Arthurian legend--Arthur's father.
