A glimpse into the legendary age of chivalry, on a rollicking journey through a magical Arthurian landscape.
Much has already been told of the Knights of The Round Table; but what of the women behind the legends?
In Chapman's exciting retelling of The Red Knight, we meet Lynett, a young noble woman, and unwilling bride of the Round Table Knight, Gaheris. When her sister Leonie is held captive by the malevolent Red Knight, Lynett is forced on a perilous journey to find King Arthur and plead for his help. Arthur, impressed by Lynett's mettle, agrees to aid her but in return she must join a band of Arthur's most trusted Knights on perhaps her most challenging quest yet - to save the Fisher King and find the Holy Grail.
But is Lynett worthy enough? And more importantly, with Merlin's help, will she overcome the personal hardships that stand in her way?
If you're a fan of Game of Thrones, you'll love this richly woven tapestry of heroes and heroines, monsters and saints, temptresses and magicians, where Knightly chivalry is beset by Dark Age barbarity.
It's based on two Arthurian myths and legends: Sir Beaumains, and the quest for the Holy Grail. The film The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot was loosely based on The Kings Damosel.
