The week from 27 November to 3 December, we crossed the river towards the last month of the year, gives us interesting titles proposed by Newton Compton Editori: The Map Da Vinci, a book that makes me think of Umberto Eco, The alienista, the novel that inspired the TV series Netflix The Alienist; the superb Testament up to Pendragon, the epic adventure that precedes the legend of King Arthur and Excalibur.

Where begins the legend. Before king Arthur, before Excalibur, Pendragon tells the story of the birth of an epic adventure, and, paraphrasing the words of the Times: "Pendragon has all the features of the traditional historical novel: there are battles, swords, and the shouts of violent men, all told with style. It represents the birth of the myth, and the nature of the power."
367 d.C. In the forest, beyond Hadrian's wall, some of the explorers, the romans were murdered.
Lucanus, an experienced warrior known as the Wolf, knows that behind these deaths lies a dark threat. The legends, in fact, tell the demons and fairies that live with their ancient gods in the most remote corners of the forests unexplored by man.
The same that Lucanus must challenge alone, venturing into a territory that even the roman army is afraid of it. His steps lead him in the heart of a hidden war, where the factions move in the shadows.
It is the beginning of an epic adventure: from the kabbalah, which lies on the city of Rome to the mysterious monument to pagan to Stonehenge, up to the realms of the survivors of warriors to gallic.
A soldier, a thief, a cutthroat, a courtesan, a druid, and even the emperor Valentinian: all of them will have a role in the birth of the House of Pendragon and their actions will have an echo destined to resonate down the centuries.
Every legend has a beginning...
