'Traitor! Now is your death-time upon you!'

Are you brave enough to enter?

The King Arthur Trilogy Reviews

Told in magnificent, rolling prose * The Times *
Sutcliff [is] a wonderful writer of historical novels * Birmingham Post *
The late Sutcliffe's take on the legend will appeal to both children and adults . . . This is great swashbuckling stuff, full of adventure and romance but with a darker edge than one would expect * South Wales Argus *
Whether Sutcliff is calling up the ale houses of Dublin or the battle-torn moors of Scotland, her descriptive language and dialogue transport readers back to a time and place not usually visited in young people's fiction * Booklist *
