Letter U April A to Z Challenge #AtoZChallenge

Day 21 April A to Z challenge my theme is characters from books I’ve read plus some audience participation.

Letter U for Uther Pendragon from The Arthurian saga by Mary Stewart.


I read this series when I was a teenager, and it has stayed with me today. One day I’ll go back and read them again. Here is the book description.

Who was Merlin? Was the famed magician of Camelot & King Arthur’s court really a sinister, all-powerful being from another world? Was he truly a Prince of Darkness? Or was he a man with the passions of other mortals? A man with unique intelligence & unusual gifts? Why was he so feared? How did he come by his occult powers? Why was the crystal cave so important to him?
5th century Britain is a country of chaos & division after the Roman withdrawal. Born the bastard son of a Welsh princess who will not reveal to her son his father’s true identity, Myridden Emrys–or as he would later be known, Merlin–leads a perilous childhood, haunted by portents & visions. But destiny has great plans for this no-man’s-son, taking him from prophesying before the High King Vortigern to the crowning of Uther Pendragon & the conception of Arthur–king for once & always.

Find a copy here from Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com

For my audience participation I’m asking reader to create book titles using the letter U for the picture below.

A book title and cover picture can often make or break a book sale. Is a book cover eye-catching? Does the book title appeal to the reader?

Have fun creating book titles from my own pictures, you might even think about a genre they could fit.
