Britain is at peace but Arthur, the Pendragon, is missing the clash of swords and the battlefield.

Sidonius lures the Pendragon to Brittany on a fool's errand, leaving his country in the inept hands of Ambrosius.

Ambrosius craves the old, disciplined and organised ways of Rome. He cannot accept the new, young kingdom or the physical disability of his son Cadwy.

Cadwy, desperate to find love and pride from his father, seeks solace with the Queen, Gwenhwyfar, but is to meet his death from Cerdic.

Cerdic, the son of Winfred and Arthur, brought up to be vindictive and cruel, will stop at nothing to get the kingdom he believes is his; but there is another son Medraut.

Medraut, born of the Pendragon's mistress, must choose which path of fate to follow. His mother's, his own, or the Pendragon's?

When Arthur is presumed dead the vultures descend, vying for the throne and he power it represents. But Gwenhwyfar refuses to accept he has gone. Her heart, her very soul, belongs to Arthur the Pendragon, the King.
