From the award-winning author Katherine Roberts comes a compelling new Arthurian series: a tale of quests, friendships and magic, told across four exciting volumes.
It is the darkest hour of the darkest age. King Arthur is dead, killed by his wicked nephew, Mordred. Saxon invaders rampage across the land and forces of evil are gethering. The path to the throne lies open to Arthur's only remaining flesh and blood - Mordred.
But there is one with a better claim than Mordred - Arthur's secret child. Brought by Merlin to enchanted Avalon as a baby raised there for protection, the king's heir must take up a vital quest: to search for the four magical Lights with the power to restore Arthur's soul to his body.
Introducing Rhianne Pendragon: unlikley princess, secret child of King Arthur and Camelot's last hope.
