About the book:

The eagerly awaited new novel in Jack Whyte's acclaimed Arthurian series

In this historically authentic, internationally bestselling novel, the orphaned Arthur is heir to the Colony of Camulod. Born with Roman heritage as well as the royal blood of the Hibernians and the Celtics, Arthur is the living incarnation of his ancestors' dream: independent survival in Britain amidst the ruins of the Roman Empire. When Arthur is adopted by his cousin, Caius Merlyn Britannicus, an enormous responsibility is placed upon Merlyn's shoulders. Now he must prepare young Arthur to unify the clans of Britain and guard the mighty sword Excalibur, crafted by his great uncle, Publius Varrus. Above all, Merlyn must see that Arthur survives to achieve his ancestors' dream, in spite of the deadly threats rumbling from the Saxon Shore.

"This isn't the usual Arthurian tale with a fantasy gloss; in graphic realism lies its fascination, and its power". -- Publishers Weekly on The Eagles' Brood
