The story of Medraut – strong, skilled, daring, and never to be king . . .

This unique interpretation of the Arthurian legend is told from Medraut's point of view, in a dark narrative addressed towards Medraut's mother and Arto's sister Morgause, a cruel and beautiful woman who connives to put her son on the throne.

Elizabeth Wein's richly told Lion Hunters series will appeal to devotees of the Arthurian legend, as well as those readers who enjoy historical sagas such as Jennifer Neil's Ascendance series and Rosemary Sutcliff's Eagle of the Ninth.
