Summary:

It is 1200 and young Arthur de Caldicot is all set to accompany Lord Stephen on the Fourth Crusade. But first Arthur must find a war-horse, be fitted with a suit of armor and learn the art of serving as a squire. Events at Lord Stephen’s manor have their own momentum too. There is a murder. There is a crush - on the vivacious Winnie de Verdon. There is a meeting with Arthur’s blood-father, the ferocious Sir William de Gortanore, and a beginning to Arthur’s search for his birth mother.

The exciting and bewildering events in Arthur’s own life are reflected in the magical seeing stone, where he steps into stories revolving around his namesake, the young King Arthur - the establishing of the Round Table, the quests of the knights, and the days of great glory at Camelot.

The second volume in the Arthur trilogy bursts with thrilling characters, stories, and themes both true to the Middle Ages and shockingly relevant to the present: Then and now we find religious intolerance fueling bitter conflict and misunderstanding, as well as acts of valor, courage and compassion.
