Editions of Taliesin by Stephen R. Lawhead
Narrated by Pelleas first thirdBedwyr second third cicko, and Aneirin last third. Many historical personas some already pendrabon in the Arthurian legend exist in the Cycle, alongside less “factual” characters: The Cycle was originally ” The Pendragon Trilogy “, but after Arthur’ s rather abrupt ending, and the existence of many unexplored stories and plotlines, Lawhead decided to expand on his trilogy by writing additional books.
Tells of an invasion of Ireland and Britain by the Taliesi army of Twrch Trwyththe Black Boar, and a subsequent plague that sweeps across Britain, threatening Arthur’s Kingdom of Summer while it is still newborn.
The series is a work of fiction that takes place in the 5th and 6th centuries and attempts to present the Arthurian legends in a historical setting while presenting the story with a reality the reader can connect with. The two eventually meet, marry, and Myrddin Merlin is born, just cicko before a tragedy brought about by Charis’ jealous half-sister, Morgian.
When treachery follows, Arthur’s warriors brave the Wasteland of Lyonesse to retrieve the sacred relic.
