This is the fourth installment of A Dream of Eagles, the ongoing saga of the birth of the Arthurian legend. The orphaned baby Arthur, heir to the Colony of Camulod and born with both Roman heritage and the royal blood of the Hibernian Scots and the Celtic Welsh, has been adopted by his cousin, Caius Merlyn Britannicus. Merlyn is now the dole custodian of the great dream of his ancestors: that of independent survival in Britain amid the ruins of the Imperial Roman world. He is the keeper of Excalibur, the wondrous sword crafted by his great uncle, Publius Varrus. It is up to Merlyn to teach the young Arthur all that he needs to know to unify the diverse clans of Britain under his kingship.
