The Last Dragon (Twilight of the Celts Book I)

King Artor lies slain. Who will protect Britain now?

The legend of King Arthur lives on in the first instalment of M.K Hume’s Twilight of the Celts Trilogy. Not to be missed by fans of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell.

‘Hume brings the bloody, violent, conniving world vividly to life…will appeal to those who thrill to Game of Thrones and other tales of intersecting, ever-warring, noble lineages’ –Kirkus Review

King Artor lies slain and Ector, a mere boy, is acknowledged as the legitimate heir to the kingdom. But the land of the Celts is weakened and Ector grows up torn between a sense of doom and duty.

Meanwhile, in the Forest of Arden, it is revealed to young Arthur that he is the Bastard Prince, son of King Artor and Lady Elayne. Trained in the skills of a warrior, Arthur cannot challenge the position of his ruler and childhood friend, but nor can he stand back and watch Briton crumble under the threat of invasion. As the Last Dragon, he must ensure that his father’s legacy lives on…
