Arthur's Stone, Merlin's Fire: The Making of a King written
by Kathryn Peterson is a story filled with discovery and truth.
One day a mysterious stone from above fell into the villagers'
lives for an unknown reason. This stone is not just an ordinary
rock, with it's rough clutches it holds a sword that is said
to name the next King of the Britians. The plot thickens as
the sword will not budge from its hardened captivity as all
the strongest men from all walks of life attempt to free it
and claim the thrown as a King of Mighty Name. Arthur is a lowly
servant boy to the chief's son. The teenage boy surprises everyone
when he accidentally removes the sword. Is he kingly material
or just a boy with mistaken identity. Arthur's Stone, Merlin's
Fire: The Making of a King, is Arthur's journey as he discovers
himself and who he truly is with the help of his friends.
