These are the continuing tales of Bowdyn, itinerant 17th Century Gleeman, member of an ancient story-telling guild. The Gewissae, the followers of warrior chieftain, Gewis, fleeing famine in their blighted land to join their kin on the east coast, are storm driven to the West Country of a Britannia now deserted by Rome. There they become warrior confederates of Caradoc, ruler of the Durotriges, in exchange for a place to build and farm. Joining to defend the land with Dux Caradoc's Legio II Militia, and Arthur the peacekeeper's Frisian cavalry, they tip the balance of power. In battle with the armies of warring petty tyrants they start the knitting up of the broken land of post-Roman Britannia, creating the Kingdom of Wessex as the Fates intended. Following on from the Axe the Shield and the Triton it is the continuing story of the workings of the Fates, forging in the white heat of joy and tragedy the iron hard warrior kings needed to build a nation, which will, over time, create an empire that changes the world.

Rescued from death during the Monmouth rebellion he tells tales of the Dark Ages to his rescuers their friends and neighbours, to entertain, divert and sing for his supper . In this first tale a lovelorn boy Gewis flees home, joining the Vandals of Carthage, in piracy and war. Years later, a wealthy, seasoned warrior, he returns to save his people from slavery or death. Set in the Dark Ages straddling the Vandal sack of Rome, The Axe the Shield and the Triton is a sweeping yarn of anarchy in a crumbling Empire, where internal conflicts, savage invaders and bands of reavers destroy Imperial order. It is a story of the workings of the Fates, part of a great tapestry in the weaving, changing the history of the world for all time."

It takes a remarkable writer to make an old story as fresh and compelling as the first time we heard it. Bernard Cornwell's Internationally bestselling King Arthur Trilogy tells the mythic saga of King Arthur and is the work of a magnificent storyteller at the height of his powers. THE WINTER KING The novel is set in Dark Age Britain in a land where Arthur has been banished and Merlin has disappeared, where a child-king sits unprotected on the throne, where religion vies with magic for the souls of the people. It is to this desperate land that Arthur returns, a man at once utterly human and truly heroic; a man who loves Guinevere more passionately than he should; a man whose life is at once tragic and triumphant. ENEMY OF GOD Having defeated the last holdouts of civil war in southern Britain, Arthur has secured Mordred's throne. But he must still face raging conflicts between the old ways and the new, as well as foes more powerful and more dangerous--because they pose as friends. EXCALIBUR The unforgettable tale of Arthur's final struggles against the Saxons and his last attempts to triumph over a ruined marriage and ravaged dreams as forces both earthly and unearthly threaten everything Arthur stands for. Peopled by princesses and bards, by warriors and magicians, Excalibur is the story of love, war, loyalty, and betrayal.
