This is the first book In M K Hume's Twilight of the Celts trilogy. King Artor is dead. All the men of the Arthurian legend are either dead or getting old. So there are not that many people around who would recognise that Arthur is the illegitimate child of the famous and much loved King Artor of Hume's earlier novels. Arthur is being raised in a loving family by his mother Elayne and "father" Bedwyr, the Arden Knife.

The story begins with Arthur as a boy, his life in the Arden Forrest, his training, and his life with his tutors. Throughout the course of the novel Arthur grows up. He learns some very hard lessons. He meets his extended family and deals with their mixed reactions to his parentage. He bonds with other young men his age, and makes a lifelong enemy. He rises to many challenges. And he is totally loveable. There is heaps of action ahead for this young man.

I have read Hume's King Arthur books and her Merlin books. She is a wonderful writer. I really enjoyed this novel. Maybe even more than the others. The second book is on my shelf and will be picked up very soon. I am looking forward to see what happens to Arthur next. ( )
