Synopsis:
It is 1199 and young Arthur de Caldicot is waiting impatiently to grow up and become a knight. One day his father's friend Merlin gives him a shining piece of obsidian and his life becomes entwined with that of his namesake, the Arthur whose story he sees unfold in the stone. In this many-layered novel, King Arthur is seen as a mysterious presence influencing not just one time and place, but many. The 100 short chapters are almost like snapshots - not only of the mythic tales of King Arthur, but the earthy, uncomfortable reality of the Middle Ages.

Review:
"You don't have to know the ins and outs of Arthurian legends to enjoy this, but the short chapters weave a growing-up story into legend and social history as well (arranged marriages, class conflicts, Christianity and Islam). As Arthurian material has always done, Kevin Crossley-Holland weaves in the concerns of the storyteller's age as well."

Mary Harris Russell, Chicago Tribune Books, 12/02/2001

Review:
"[A] richly imagined new version of the story of King Arthur...."
