it was amazing

We’ve all heard the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. A young Arthur learns of his kingly destiny by pulling the sword from the stone. He is a fair and much loved ruler who weds the beautiful Guinevere. We also know of Guinevere’s betrayal and her deep love for Lancelot.

It’s a fabulous story but what if that’s all it is? Maybe it’s not the true story at all. Perhaps the real story is much grittier and far less polished.

Here Lies Arthur tells of an alternative Arthur and Camelot. No magic, just some very good spin doctoring and a few well acted out scenes to create a certain persona for Arthur. The story is told through the eyes of Gwyna, the girl who acted the part of the Lady of the Lake. This little scene went over so well that even Arthur himself believed that the incident actually occurred. Then there’s the truth behind the Queen’s betrayal…You’ll have to read the book and find out yourself.
