The legends of King Arthur come alive with a Christian world-view in these masterfully told adventures. These new editions contain new maps and other new material.
An enchanting tale of love and loss, glory and grandeur, set in the twilight of Rome's power...where the Celtic chieftains of Britain battle to save their land from an onrushing darkness...In this modern classic, Stephen Lawhead presents a majestic retelling of Western literature's most compelling epic. Merlin. His golden eyes saw the shape of a world yet to be. His wisdom would light the path of the coming King. Born of a union between druid and faery, he was trained as a bard and schooled in the ways of battle. But his heart and calling were greater than a warrior's. Son of the great Taliesin, the song of his father coursed through his soul. Yet his life and mission were to be his own. And though sovereignty was his, he would lay it aside to serve a king of his own choosing. As his powers transcended those of mortal men, so, too, would his trials, his griefs...and the dark might of his most fearsome enemy. In the twilight of Rome's rule over the Island of the Mighty, as smaller men vied for ascendancy, his would be the hand to lay the foundations of a new order - the Kingdom of Summer...and Arthur, Pendragon of Britain.
Annotation: The second book in the Pendragon Cycle explores the birth and life of Merlin as he prepares himself and the land for the coming of King Arthur.
Unlike many science fiction and fantasy authors, Stephen R. Lawhead studied Fine Art while attending college (Kearny State in Nebraska). While there he wrote both poetry and a column in the college paper, though it wasn't until several years later that he turned to fiction. In the meantime, he played guitar in a rock group, studied at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, and started and managed a record company. His first novel, IN THE HALL OF THE DRAGON KING, appeared in 1982. The first volume of Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle, an Arthurian fantasy series, was published in 1987, and was derived from research Lawhead had done in England, a country to which he and his family eventually immigrated in 1990. The Pendragon books are arguably Lawhead's most popular--the second of which, ARTHUR, even received a nomination for the Locus Award, an award voted on by the readers of science fiction and fantasy. Lawhead has also written non-fiction guides to life in college, several in collaboration with his wife, Alice.
