A fresh account of the life of King Arthur is offered in this rendition of the tale from the perspective of Celtic mythology. The story begins with the prophesy of Myrddin, the counselor to kings, who dreams of a child who will grow up in the fosterage of a noble family and become the rightful king of Britain. Following the feats of the legendary character in the clutches of the manipulative powers of Myrddin, the man behind Arthur's devious conception, this rendering takes readers through the miraculous extraction of the intractable sword Caladfwlch, Arthur's defense of the kingdom against the treason of the renegade Lot, and his subsequent rise to power.

This is a tale of the beginnings of the Arthurian legend, told from the perspective of "what if," or "how could that have happened."
For example: The classic sword in the stone... how could a sword be in a stone? More likely, the sword was on the stone. Where did the legends come from? When did reality become myth, and why?
This story, the first of several in a group called "A Celtic Tale," attempts to peer behind the mists of legend into the historical "reality" of the story. Of course, sometimes the reality itself offers a better story than the original myth...Others in the series (all on Kindle):
