The Winter King

As told by former warrior-turned-monk, Derfel Cadarn, The Winter King is a bold and imaginative reinterpretation of the legend of King Arthur Pendragon.

Based on Bernard Cornwell’s Warlord Chronicles book series, The Winter King takes place during the fifth century Saxon invasion and details Arthur’s meteoric rise from outcast to legendary warrior, encountering the likes of Merlin, Lancelot and Guinevere along the way.
