The announcement of Queen Nimue’s pregnancy brings much joy to the citizens of Camelot, but evil never rests. The old gods of Britain are planning their vengeance upon the High King in their lair in Bala. Meanwhile, Crom Cruach, the wolf-god sates his hunger on the people of Hibernia. Word reaches Camelot of the plight of the people across the sea. Justice and decency require King Emrys to act. His brother, Uther volunteers to travel to Hibernia in his stead, taking Taliesin the bard and the mighty blade Caledbur with him to slay Crom. During Uther’s sojourn, the Saxon barbarians gain strength, mustering their numbers. The Saxons’ challenge will not go unanswered. King Emrys with his troops ride forth to halt the advance of the Saxons, but there is greater evil afoot. Will Uther succeed in his mission? What will become of King Emrys? And what of Camelot?
