Soon he finds himself at the centre of family tensions, deceit and tragedy. Can he prevent the bloodshed that seems inevitable?

"Sperring really gets into the dynamics of the Orkney royal family, to produce one of the most satisfying and sympathetic pictures of Gaheris I have ever seen... A really excellent short Arthurian novel." - Amazon reviewer
"There's quite a bit of violence and tragedy in this story. However, it also made me laugh out loud during several scenes. The interactions between Gaheris and his brothers Gawain, Agravaine, Gareth, and Medraut in particular are frequently hilarious...when they aren't tense, ominous, and/or breathtakingly sweet." - LibraryThing reviewer
"Kari Sperring's prose is elegant, her storytelling impeccable, Gaheris is a sympathetic character. I would have been happy to spend more time with him." - Amazon reviewer
