Grail: Book Five of the Pendragon Cycle

Harper Collins, 13. okt. 2009 - 400 sider

A great king faces the ultimate challenge: a dangerous quest through realms of magic and the undead toward a confrontation with his destiny

Drought, plague, and war have left the Isle of the Mighty battered and its heart, the beloved Arthur, grievously injured—until a secret relic is brought before the dying King; a Holy Grail that heals his wounds and restores his vigor.

But soon evil enters the royal court in the guise of a beautiful maiden; a soulless, malevolent force capable of seducing the King’s loyal champion, confounding the sage whom some call Merlin, and carrying the sacred Grail—and Arthur’s adored Queen—off into the dark unknown.

I bought this to complete the Pendragon series. I haven't read this final book yet but my son has and he rates it five stars. Although I've not finished the series, we both like how the books draws the reader into the Pendragon world. It is believable fantasy with a Christian world view. Les hele vurderingen

Side 186 - It is a land where kings extend their hands in justice rather than reach for the sword; where mercy, kindness, and compassion flow like deep water, and men revere virtue, revere truth, revere beauty, above comfort, pleasure, or selfish gain — a land where peace reigns in the hearts of men; where faith blazes like a beacon from every hill, and love like a fire from every hearth; where the True God is worshipped and his ways acclaimed by all.
Side 186 - There is a land shining with goodness where each man protects his brother's dignity us readily as his own, where war and want have ceased and all races live under the same law of love and honor.
