The tale of Camelot written from the viewpoint of Sir Bedevere. The first 80 pages or so are tough-going because it might take awhile to get used to the language, but the reward will be great if you bear with it.

The Pendragon, September 19, 2002
Reviewer: Faeril (Florida)

On the down side, this book has almost ruined any chances of me liking any other Arthur books, but only because there aren't any better out there. I've read plenty of books about Arthur and Camelot, but none that was so realistic, so intense in a way. Like every story that has been retold again and again, the books about King Arthur are largely similar in how the people are viewed, such as most Arthur books have "Morgen le fey" as an evil witch and sorceress, not so with this book. This is the book that takes the story and puts life into it and it's characters, bringing these people closer to your heart. I found myself not able to stop reading, and yet, not wanting the book to be over all at the same time. At the end I just sat and thought about it for awhile, wishing the tragic ending didn't have to be like that. This is not a book for people who scorn any Arthur book that is not told in the classic style, for it is not. This is a wonderful book that I very highly recommend, if you can find it.

Bedivere, King Arthur's boyhood friend and life's companion, tells the true story of the Pendragon himself.
