From Amazon:

After his sister is murdered at the hands of four drunken knights from Camelot, Micah of Greenfarm swears a vow of vengeance that leads him from peasant to knighthood's highest station. James's debut novel offers a version of the Arthurian myth in which the nobles' contempt for those of lowly birth stands in contrast to the knightly codes of chivalry and courtly love. Elegantly written with an eye for the often overlooked details of a savage age, this skillful portrait of a young man's painful collision with legend provides more than just another retelling of the Round Table's rise and fall. Most libraries should consider this revisionist view of Camelot for their fantasy collections.
