Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arthur Pendragon is King! Unchallenged on the battlefield, he melds the country together in a time of promise. But sinister powers plot to destroy Camelot, and when the witch-queen Morgause — Arthur's own half sister — ensnares him in an incestuous liaison, a fatal web of love, betrayal, and bloody vengeance is woven.

Review:

"A perfect trip out of the present into a dark but cozy age....Mary Stewart completes the trilogy she began in The Crystal Cave and The Hollow Hills, deftly elaborating and embroidering the thimbleful of facts we have about King Arthur and his circle." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"The Arthurian legend is first and foremost defined by literary classics [such as] Mary Stewart's beloved Crystal Cave trilogy." USA Today

Review:

"Exciting and interesting reading...filled with adventure, romance, fantasy and details of everyday life." Christian Science Monitor

Review:

"Mary Stewart has whetted readers' appetites for Arthurian marvels....Her purpose is not to recast old material but to bring alive a long-dead historical epoch....This she does splendidly. Fifth-century Britain is caught in these pages." Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Pleasurable reading." Seattle Times

Review:

"Spectacular....[A] persuasive amalgam of history, myth, and magic." Financial Times (London)

Review:

"[Stewart] bridges the gap between fantasy and realism in [her] retelling of the story." Anchorage Daily News

Review:

"[An] enchanting version of the Arthurian legend...[that] stands heads and shoulders above a bland mass of fairy tales based on the story....Three-dimensional characters in a realistic world....A feast for Arthur lovers everywhere....In her fully realized version of the legend, Stewart remains true to tradition while still holding and surprising us with the unexpected plot twists. The magic in her novels is somber and mysterious." Capital Times (Madison, Wisconsin)

Synopsis:

Arthur is King! Crowned and recognized as High King, he melds the country together in a time of promise, as Merlin works in the shadows. But while unchallenged on the battlefield, sinister powers plan to destroy him in his own Camelot. King Lot of Lothian eyes the throne...and he is not alone. When the witch-queen Morgause, Arthur's half-sister, ensnares him in an incestuous liaison — and bears his son Mordred, to use to her own evil ends — a fatal web of love, betrayal, and bloody vengeance is woven.

About the Author

Mary Stewart, one of the most widely read authors of our time, began writing at the age of five, when she published her first poem in a small parish magazine in England. Having published 20 novels, a volume of poetry, and three books for young readers, she is noted both for her contemporary stories of romance and suspense and for her Arthurian novels, most recently The Prince and the Pilgrim. She has fourteen New York Times bestsellers to her credit, including The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, and The Last Enchantment, which comprise The Merlin Trilogy. Before embarking on a full-time writing career she taught English at school and university level. Born in England, Mary Stewart has lived for many years in Scotland, dividing her time between Edinburgh and the West Highlands. Her interests include natural history, gardening, Greek and Roman history, music, and art.

Series Description

If you haven't read Mary Stewart's Arthurian Saga, you don't know what you're missing. They are must reads for any romance reader, for any lover of Arthurian legend, for any history buff, for any voracious reader, and may be the books to get non-readers started. Basically, they should be read by everyone! Mary Stewart's research for these books is phenomenal. Her understanding of myth and its relationship to fact is remarkable. The books are complex, yet incredibly inviting and you will absolutely love the characters. They also weave together so beautifully that you won't be able to read only one. The books go in this order: The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment, and The Wicked Day.

Discouvered Mary Stewarts books in the 70's. Can't tell you how many times since I've read them. My Favorites are the Merlin/Arthur series. Found out my gal pal has never read them so picking up a set for her! Happy Reading!
