Summary (From the publisher):

The culmination of a lifelong passion for Wales and its mythology, "Porius" is at once a historical novel and a commentary on the nature of modern warfare. It is the year 499. The Saxons and their forest-people allies are advancing upon a Roman fort in North Wales in a desperate attempt to save the remnants of their matriarchate. Arthur has sent ahead Merlin, Nineue, and Medrawd, to help the beleaguered son of the reigning prince, Porius.
