Albion: The Last Companion/McCormack, Pat/Paper/1854874128/S054-D2
Post-Arthurian Britain brought to life in an historically accurate and convincing novel alive with drama and excitement. Ten years after the Battle of Camlann in which Arthur was slain, Budoc the hermit waits for death in the Sacred Wood, his world crumbling into darkness. Raiders roam the coasts of Britain in wolf packs burning crops and slaughtering villages. Among them is an Irish war party in search of a magical chalice accompanied by a witch doctor. Thirty years before, after his great victory at Mount Badon, Arthur had sailed north to the mist-enshrouded Western Isles, taking with him a select band of his chosen warriors. There he won possession of the chalice and was declared Emperor of Albion. Now, as the flame of civilization dims and hordes rush in on Britain from all sides, Budoc and a raggle-taggle band consisting of two warriors, a captured Saxon boy and a village girl, must rely on the powers of the Sacred Wood and the martial arts of Arthur's Companions to save themselves and Arthur's dream of Albion.
