Fans of Jack Whyte's Camulod Chronicles, an authentic retelling of the Arthurian legend as it actually may have happened, have enjoyed watching the story of Camelot evolve through the eyes of Merlyn - witnessing firsthand Merlyn's role in shaping the boy who would be king. But there has been a part of the story that readers have been denied. With UTHER, Jack Whyte provides a portrait of Merlyn's shadow - his boyhood companion and closest friend, the man who would sire the King of the Britons. From the trials of boyhood to the new cloak of adult responsibility, we see Uther with fresh eyes. He will travel the length of the land, have adventures and through fate or tragedy, fall in love with the one woman he must not have. UTHER is a compelling love story and, like the other books in the Camulod Chronicles, a version of the legend that is more realistic than anything readers have seen before.
