Description:
For the first time, an adult edition of the first book in this prize-winning trilogy about medieval life and Arthurian magic.

It is an enthralling story of secrets and mysteries in the life of young Arthur Caldicot, who discovers his namesake, the boy King Arthur, in his seeing stone.
