A retelling of the story of Uther, the father of King Arthur, follows his boyhood and adventures throughout Britain, his close friendship with Merlyn, and his desire for a woman who is forbidden to him

McMillan Palgrave
With Uther, Jack Whyte, author of the richly praised Camulod Chronicles, has given us a portrait of Uther Pendragon, Merlyn's shadow--his boyhood companion and closest friend. And the man who would sire the King of the Britons.

From the trials of boyhood to the new cloak of adult responsibility, we see Uther with fresh eyes. He will travel the length of the land, have adventures, and, through fate or tragedy, fall in love with the one woman he must not have. Uther is a compelling love story and, like the other books in the Camulod Chronicles, a version of the legend that is more realistic than anything that has been available to readers before.


Blackwell North Amer
Uther Pendragon was born one of the Eagles' Brood, the grandson of Publius Varrus and Luceiia Britannicus and cousin to Merlyn Britannicus. The two men are closer than any two brothers could be, and yet they are as different as fire and air. As a young man, Uther has known instinctively that command in Camulod was for Merlyn and that he, as a Pendragon, belonged among his father's people, in the mountain kingdom ruled by his ancestors but fortified with as many of the advantages of Camulodian technology as he could use. He is more Celt than Roman, and in his heart he knows that he is a hybrid product of two races and two traditions...and this internal conflict will tear at Uther throughout his life.

Whyte shifts perspective once again in the Camulod Chronicles, and gives a rich and believable portrait of the Celtic lands and people of Uther's Pendragon. This volume works well as a stand-alone historical novel, full of bloodthirsty action, or as an installment in the longer series, finally revealing mysteries elsewhere in the narrative.
