Armed with their respective powers as warrior and magician, Dan and Ursula attempt to return to their own time through the Veil but instead find themselves in the turbulent era of the early Middle Ages in the service of Artorius Ursus, War Duke of Britain. Dan and Ursula have once again been called through the Veil into the middle of intense political drama in ancient times. Taliesin, the mysterious bard they befriended in Warriors of Alavna, has turned their exploits into legend, convincing the War Duke Arturus that Dan and Ursula both represent the "Bear" of an ancient prophecy that will come to protect the people. But when they come face-to-face with Arturus, they soon realize that reality and legend are often quite different. Could the War Duke actually be the legendary figure King Arthur, whose deeds transcended time, or is there more to the story, and do they have a part to play in it? Subtly and cleverly woven around Arthurian legend, this is a breathtaking and action-packed adventure.
