The Sword and the Circle: King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
When the young boy Arthur pulled the mysterious sword—meant for the one true King—from the stone, his destiny, and Britain’s, was changed forever. The Fellowship of the Round Table was formed, and the most famous knights in the land came to court.
In a new retelling of the well-loved legend, Rosemary Sutcliff dramatically recounts their tales: the quests and adventures, jousts and loves of Gawain, Gareth, Tristan, Percival and many others.
But what happened to King Arthur himself—how he got his sword Excalibur, his marriage to Guenever, the magic of Merlin and the threat of the evil Morgan La Fay—makes for the most fascinating story of all.
Especially when Lancelot, the world’s greatest knight, decided to come to Camelot.
