Reader Reviews

tales of king arthur
These legendary tales of knights and nobility in ancient Britain, rivetingly retold for today's readers, remain as fresh and exciting as the day they were first written. From The Sword in the Stone to The Lady in the Lake, these stories bring to life the fantastic characters of Camelot; the wise wizard Merlin, the gallant Sir Lancelot, the wicked Morgan le Fay, and the beautiful Queen Guinevere.
