Product description

A dark new spin on an old story. Deception, secrets, lies: this is how legends are 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 utterly true to our times.

  • Winner of the Carnegie Medal 2008
  • A riveting tale of political manipulation
  • By the bestselling author of Mortal Engines
  • Explores the dark side of the power of stories
