Description - The Giants' Dance by Robert Carter
In a time when legends lived! To his fellow villagers Will is an ordinary man, lucky to have a loving wife and a healthy child. But the wizard Gwydion believes him to be a reincarnation of the greatest king the Realm has ever seen: Arthur. And now Arthur's time has come again. War looms and the fate of the Realm hangs in the balance. But Will has his own reasons for joining Gwydion in his quest to prevent catastrophe. He yearns finally to learn the real secret of his identity; the secret Gwydion has been hiding from him since his birth. As the Wars of the Roses rage, ancient British legends come to life in this brilliant reinvention of the fifteenth century.

Author Biography - Robert Carter
Robert Carter was born exactly five hundred years after the first battle of the Wars of the Roses. He was brought up in the Midlands and later on the shores of the Irish Sea where his forebears hail from. He was variously educated in Britain, Australia and the United States, then worked for some years in the Middle East and remote parts of Africa. He travelled widely in the East, before joining the BBC in London in 1982. His interests have included astronomy, pole-arm fighting, canals, collecting armour, steam engines, composing music and enjoying the English countryside, and he has always maintained a keen interest in history. Today he lives in a 'village' that only sounds rural -- Shepherd's Bush.
