There will be time to crown a king, but first a warlord must rise.

Arthur’s battle summer is upon him, and he must be victorious if he is to claim his throne and rid the land of Saxon invaders.

The teenage king has pulled the sword from the stone, but still the petty kings will not accept his rule. The Saxons are invading, Lot and Uriens are united against him, and he still has to prove himself to the common folk of the land.

Next stop: the mysterious standing stones of the Giants’ Dance and the Beltane ritual.

Warfare does not wait for Arthur to catch his breath. Battle follows battle. Love is lost and found. Allies fall, enemies rise, and betrayals come to the young High King. If he stays strong, he can lead his people through a bloody summer. If not, all of Britannia will fall.

Arthur alone will be responsible for the glory or ruin to come. Merlin will help him to see it through. But what secrets is the druid keeping?

Arthur Rex: Dux Bellorum is the third installment in an epic retelling of the King Arthur legend.

You only think you know the story.

About the Author

J. A. Cummings was born in Flint, Michigan and was raised in a nearby town called Clio. Appropriately enough for someone growing up in a place named for the Muse of history, she developed a passion for reading and the past that continues to this day. Her love of poetry and storytelling quickly followed.

Her life has been one of numerous false starts, unexpected endings and fascinating side trips that lasted far too long. All of that chaos has informed her writing and improved her understanding of what it means to be human, both the sorrow and the glory.

She still resides in Michigan, where she is the founder and co-owner of Irish Horse Publications.
