Publisher's full blue cloth, gilt lettering on spine, maps on endpapers. This is the third of Mary Stewart's wonderful Arthurian Saga, consisting of The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, The Last Enchantment, The Wicked Day and The Prince and the Pilgrim. They are by far the best historical fiction written around the Arthurian Legends. The books are complex, yet incredibly inviting and the characters are unforgettable. Arthur reigns as Great King of a united Britain. But while unchallenged on the battlefield, sinister powers plot to destroy him in his own Camelot. When the rose-gold witch Morgause, Arthur's half-sister, ensnares him into 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. 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. 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.. This is a new, unopened, unmarked copy in perfect condition.
