Also published as Twilight Province, this book is aimed at younger readers. It is told by Bedwyr, prince of the eponymous Province in northern Britain, looking back on the life of Arthur. Many of the traditional Arthurian characters are here, although sometimes in surprising form – Lancelot become Olans, a Gothic warrior. The story is not tied to any Arthurian tradition, but follows a typical line for modern Arthurian historical novels, with Badon being towards the end of the book.
