Excalibur, the very symbol of King Arthur's power has been stolen. Unable to immediately pursue the thief, Arthur and Merlin travel north to mediate a dispute over the dismantling of Hadrian's wall.
Queen Gwenhwyvar and Sorceress Morgan Le Fay take it upon themselves to recover the stolen sword. Little do they know a magical beast guards the sword and will devour any who try to retrieve it.
Purpose is to inject more action and adventure into the Arthurian tales. This, the second in the series, is more action packed rather than full of intrigue like the first one.
The intended audience are adults from 18 years and over.
Readers will see an entirely new side to the historical figure of Queen Guinevere. King Arthur wants to return to the old-ways and in those days the women were warriors beside their men.
