Product Description

A master writer retells the Arthur story with a shocking spin. Manipulation, secrets, lies: a startling exposé of how a legend is made. King Arthur is the greatest hero of all time, and Myrddin is his bard – a spinner of magical tales. But it’s a devious kind of magic that can turn a slave-girl into a goddess, and a raggle-taggle rascal into a warrior legend… Every so often, you come across a book that changes the way you think about your world. This is one of those rare books. A masterpiece about the stories made up by people who want to rule us. Set in the past, but true to our times.

Winner of the Carnegie Medal 2008.

    when i picked this book up at my school io thought it would be about the greatness of arthur pendragon. witht his i was disappointed, the book was more critical, talking about merlin as a fake who spread lies about arhur to boost his might, and how he was nothing more than a well taught fighter with no brains. however i still enjoyed the book and it helped me look at the world i very much so beleive in, in a much much different perspective
