Lyonesse is the land of legends and magic. It's the forgetten land where King Arthur once resided with Merlin and his Knights of the Round Table. But thousands of years after the great king walked this country, it has become a place of shadows, where men hunt and capture the monsters that lurk below in the dark depths of the sea. Lyonesse is slowly sinking, and it is up to one boy, Idris, to save his people and his land. Can he stand up to the forces of evil that aim to stop him?
Sam Llewellyn's book in two parts LYONESSE has its roots in the world of Arthurian legend, but Sam has made the story and characters his own, drawing on a range of sources to create a fabulously rich and fresh adventure for every child, not just those with an interest in King Arthur.
Sam Llewellyn worked as an editor and fine art dealer until he decided that life was too short. Since then, his novels, published in twelve languages, have earned him a reputation as one of the world's master storytellers and writers of maritime thrillers. Many of his books are founded in personal experience. While researching them he has (among other things) chased pirates in the South China Sea and raced large ships in France.
