Editorial Reviews

From the Author

The Relic of the King is my sixth book and the first of The Crypt Trilogy.  I've been fascinated for years by the things that lie beneath the streets of the oldest part of London - the "City."  Anywhere you look you can see construction underway, and wherever they excavate they find things dating back to medieval times or even earlier, to the times of the Roman occupation before Jesus Christ was born.
I enjoyed researching and writing this book very much.  Many people believe King Arthur was real; there are stories of the discovery of his bones in Glastonbury Abbey.  This novel poses questions about Arthur and his beautiful queen, Guinevere, who had trouble remaining faithful to her devoted king.  I hope you'll enjoy reading it!
