Arthur King by William Speir
Who was King Arthur? That question has delighted, inspired, and confounded people for centuries. Was he a mighty warrior who united the kingdoms of Britain to fight off the Saxons and their allies after the Roman Legions withdrew? Was he the champion of chivalry who was involved in a love triangle that ended up destroying all that he had built? Was he a larger-than-life warrior surrounded by magical weapons and beings? Or was he just a man trying to defend his homeland from invaders? Award-winning author William Speir peels back the layers of myths and legends to tell a story that is rooted in history. Arthur, King is a novel about the man who led a kingdom besieged by enemies and filled with ambitious warlords plotting to become the next High King of Britain.
