The tale of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table is the prevailing myth of Britain. The book is in four volumes: The Sword in the Stone details Arthur’s unorthodox yet highly entertaining childhood and education, under the tutelage of Merlyn. In The Queen of Air and Darkness, we are introduced to Morgause, whose influence colors everything in the lives of her four sons. In The Ill-Made Knight, we hear the story of Sir Lancelot, whose heart leads him to ruin. As this epic story draws to a close, The Candle in the Wind shows Arthur struggling to reconcile his actions with the outcome as his life is seen as a series of decisions and consequences. This classic novel spans the literary genres of fantasy, historical fiction, and legend, and is a perennial favorite.
