King of the Middle March
Skilfully interweaving a spellbinding retelling of the Arthurian myths with the parallel story of an ordinary boy in the Middle Ages, this is the third and final book in the award-winning trilogy which is a landmark in children’s fiction.
In Venice the crusader army waits, until the Doge suggests an attack on Zara in return for passage to the Holy Land. This is not the glorious battle that Arthur imagined, but Christian against Christian. Arthur discovers that there are few differences between the crusades and the battles which destroy Camelot. He must find his way not to Jerusalem, but home to the Marches and his true destiny.
‘Deep scholarship, high imagination, and great gifts of storytelling have gone into this: I was spellbound’
