The first of two volumes and the fifth installment in the bestselling Dream of Eagles series, Jack Whyte's Fort at River's Bend continues to delve into the political drama and intrigue behind England's greatest legend, as young Arthur climbs toward his destiny.


Merlyn Britannicus, Commander of Camulod, is tasked with educating the young Arthur Pendragon for his role as the future King of Britain. However, threats against Arthur's life drive Merlyn and the boy to flee Camulod for an abandoned Roman fort, where Merlyn hopes they will be safe from political intrigue. In the meantime, enlisting help from Arthur's close-knit group of boyhood friends--Gwin, Ghilleadh, and Bedwyr--Merlyn teaches the young king about warfare, justice, honour and the responsibilities of leadership.
     But when the tenuous peace of Camulod is threatened by unrest in neighbouring regions, Merlyn faces a dilemma. How can he prepare Arthur to be a ruler of men when he continues to train him in isolation? Merlyn knows that he must risk losing the dream of his grandfather Caius Britannicus if he is ever to fulfill it, for the day is not far off when Arthur will have to claim the sword that is his birthright: Excalibur.
