Book Details

"The Silurian" is an entirely original interpretation of the King Arthur legend; especially of the King Arthur genre novel. The entire series is a continuous first-person narrative that is meant to be 'heard', as the words of the leading protagonist, Prince Bedwyr, the Fox, are his words: a spoken-voice narrative that encompasses his and Arthur's entire lives of war, love, deep friendship, ultimate power, and loss, all set within the real world of an historical time--the 5th century A.D.

In "The Silurian", there are no magic-wielding druids, no 'Lancelot Loves Guinevere', no magic swords, only the lives of real men and women, fighting to survive the harsh reality of post-Roman Britain. Yet the themes of Arthurian romance are still there, deeply buried within Bedwyr's real-life narrative: a love story of obsession with the man called Arthur, the Bear of Britain, who became in time the mythical King Arthur of the Knights of the Round Table—this is The Silurian's road to such a living legend.

"The Silurian" then is an amazing journey into the past, where the social order was kept by the sword, by loyalty unto death, and the desire to be free: free to survive in the face of Saxon invasions, of violent internal conflicts, and free to love unshielded within their Dark Age war-hosts of warrior brothers.

Energized by L.A.’s powerful and unconventional story-telling, a whole dramatic world of brotherhood, war, love, hate, and betrayal is created and viewed through the exotic eyes of Prince Bedwyr, the Fox. This is his story. The story of Arthur, the Bear of Britain, and his rise to power, and ultimately his journey into the mythical realm of ‘The Once and Future King’.
