To save the woman he loves above all else, he must do the impossible. Once more, the last defender of Camelot must begin anew his quest for the Grail... This time to suceed---or die forever!

What P.N. Elrod has to say

"I've" enjoyed this collaboration far more thoroughly than I ever imagined! I want all of you to know that Nigel is truly a terrific guy to work with. His attitude throughout has been the best, both professionally and artistically, and I'm pleased to say he's got me spoiled *rotten* for doing collaborations with any other writers! Nigel and I are very proud of this novel, and more than that, we both know it stands fine on its own merits. Yes we each contributed to the book, but in this case the whole is most decidedly greater than the sum of its parts. I hope when you read it you'll think so too!"

What" Nigel Bennett has to say

"The book delves into all sorts of areas from Arthurian legends to Shamanism and Goddess worship. I think that it will be a really good read. It certainly was a wonderful experience for me to write, or at least co-write, it. I think that I put a lot of myself into it, and am very pleased with my first attempt at writing fiction. Pat was a great help both in what she wrote, and in the way she helped me with what I wrote. In all I've had great fun and a wonderful experience."
