GAWAIN & THE GREEN KNIGHT by MARTIN SHAW
A Christmas game,
a perilous quest,
a test within a test…
Martin Shaw brings us a new telling of Gawain & the Green Knight. A young knight rides out into the British Otherworld to encounter more than he ever could have bargained for.
Expect drama, romance, and the high magic of the Arthurian tradition.
