Before Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon, was murdered by Ulric, as a final act, Uther thrust his sword, Caliburn, into a rock. Only a man true of heart would be able to draw and wield the weapon once more. Until that time, Ulric would become King of the Britons, raining terror over all the land.

Excalibur: The Legend of King Arthur Summary

Excalibur: The Legend of King Arthur by Tony Lee

In this gripping tale - of love and deceit, forgiveness and hope - the secrets of King Arthur's past and the mysteries of his future all come together in a visually striking portrait of the heroic legend. Albion is at war. Ruled by the murderous King Ulric for too long, its people are desperate for justice. Arthur, son of Uther Pendragon, is their last hope. Now come of age, Arthur can fulfil a longstanding prophecy. And by freeing the enchanted Caliburn from its sheath on Stone Hill, finally the land will have its true king. But Arthur's future is uncertain. Not only does his half-sister Morgana have a vengeful score to settle; those whom he trusts most are also destined to betray him.

Excalibur: The Legend of King Arthur Reviews

Visually striking portrait of the heroic legend. Brilliantly retold by author Tony Lee and imaginatively captured by illustrator Sam Hart, this is not to be missed! * Wordsmith *
"Hart captures it all with intense, shadow- and light-filled artwork, bringing an exciting, gritty visualisation to the book's balance of gruff romance, and loads of sword-swinging action. * Booklist *
