LEISA SCOTT THE COURIER-MAIL JUNE 08, 2013 4:05PM IT’S the stuff of fantasy, this tale tumbling from the lips of Marilyn Hume, even if the scene is as ordinary as they come. I’d hoped for a knight in chainmail at her gate, perhaps even a sword stuck in a rock on visiting the home of [...]

“At least Morgan is honest! Artor thought as he forced his tired lips to smile. She refuses to eat at my table because she is my enemy. How many of my guests pretend?”
M.K. Hume, Dragon's Child

“You hate him worse than me, you viper,’ he whispered as the stimulant cleared his brain.
‘Aye, lord, but here’s the oddity of it - I love him too.’ Morgan replied, her eyes void of all emotion.”
M.K. Hume, Dragon's Child

“The monster, Hitler, died like Uther, frightened, hiding, haunted by his crimes and his wholly reasonable belief that all decent human beings would turn their backs on him. Who really cares where Hitler’s bones lie, or how he died, as long as he is safely dead?

We shall never know for certain where Arthur lies, or if he even lived. If he was a myth, then it was necessary for human beings to invent him. Hail, Arthur, King of the Britons! I wish another hero would take your place, now that the west has such a need of you.”
