In a lyrical and powerful epic retelling of the myth of Arthur Pendragon that began with The Skystone, Jack Whyte has shown readers the battle of civilisation versus barbarism and the attempts by men of honour to keep the world they know from vanishing. In The Lance Thrower, Clothar is a young man of promise. He has been sent from the wreckage of Gaul to one of the few schools where logic and rhetoric are taught along with battle techniques. He is sent by his mentor on a journey to aid another young man - Arthur Pendragon. The name of Clothar may be unknown to modern readers, for tales change in the telling through centuries. But any reader will surely know this heroic young man as well as they know the man who became his king. Hundreds of years later, chronicles call Clothar, the Lance Thrower, by a much more common name: Lancelot.
