A Queen, A Pilgrim, A Demon -- And A King With A World To Save... Beneath every beloved legend there is a deeper legend still, etched in ancient stone. The Dragon and the Unicorn begins before the beginning of Time, as light first cools to matter, bearing within it the electron glow of lost Heaven. Attanasio's epic tale of a quest for immortality spans all history, human and demihuman, from the dung fires on the steppes to the snows of the Himalayas, from the mudhut cities on the Euphrates to the glass and steel towers of tomorrow, from the hunt for the Unicorn's horn to the ceaseless wars of elf and dragon, Celt and Roman. It is a quest that ends--and begins--in a legend-heavy place at the edge of the Western Sea, with the first cry of a King new horn. A place called Tintagel. A King, the heir Pendragon, called Eagle of Thor, or... Arthor.
