The Kingmaking (Pendragon's Banner Trilogy) by Helen Hollick #AwardWinning #HistoricalFiction


*30th Anniversary Edition*

The Pendragon Banner Trilogy

by Helen Hollick

The Boy Who became a Man:
Who became a King: 
Who became a Legend... KING ARTHUR
There is no Merlin, no sword in the stone, and no Lancelot.
Instead, the man who became our most enduring hero.

All knew the oath of allegiance: 
‘To you, lord, I give my sword and shield, my heart and soul. To you, my Lord Pendragon, I give my life, to command as you will.’

This is the tale of Arthur made flesh and bone. Of the shaping of the man who became the legendary king; a man with dreams, ambitions and human flaws.
A man, a warlord, who united the collapsing province of post-Roman Britain,
who held the heart of the love of his life, Gwenhwyfar
- and who emerged as the most enduring hero of all time.

A different telling of the later Medieval tales. 
This is the story of King Arthur as it might have really happened...
