M.J. was born in the old Mercian kingdom at some point after 1066. Raised in the shadow of a strange little building, told from a very young age that it housed the bones of long-dead Kings of Mercia and that her garden was littered with old pieces of pottery from a long-ago battle, it’s little wonder that M.J.’s curiosity in Early England ran riot. She can only blame her parents.

Camelot, by Giles Kristian.

Camelot, by Giles Kristian.

Camelot begins in much the same way as the previous book, Lancelot. The lead character is a young man, about to take his vows to become a monk on the tor at Glastonbury when his world completely changes. The depiction of life on the tor is wonderfully evoked, and even if the author could have ...
