As you well know, I have a little bit of an obsession with everything Arthurian, so when I was offered an ARC of The Shadow of a King by C.M.Grey, I was hardly going to say no!
Let's take a quick look at the book...
The truth can never die.
The tip of a spear settles any dispute.
But the love of a King comes before all.
In his fifteenth year of rule, King Uther Pendragon - High King of all the Celtic Tribes - is set on a quest by Merlyn and the druids of Mona, to brave the winter seas and set sail for the Isle of Erin. The quest placed upon the king, despite the tribal lands being at war with Saxon invaders, is to take a war party and return with a prize that will lay to rest the ghosts of the past and allow the Celts to reclaim their lands.
But none of those who set sail realize what this quest will release within their king, and what events will unfold.
The second book in C.M. Gray's Shadowland series, The Shadow of a King is a standalone fantasy adventure and can be enjoyed even if you haven't read the first book in the series.
