This retelling of the Arthurian tale portrays the mythical British King Arthur as a young man gazing into his own future toward a quest that will change everything he know about life and love.

The audio book production was the result of the author’s year-long SoundBeat internship, organized through the Lawrence B. Taishoff Center for Inclusive Higher Education InclusiveU program in the School of Education’s Center on Disability and Inclusion. Catroppa says he is planning to write a follow-up book.

The audio book was read by Price Waldman and produced by Brett Barry, Christopher Catroppa, and Jim O’Connor. The music score was written by John Vallely, with creative consultation by Patrick Doyle. Doyle has been nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards; has composed numerous film scores including Henry V, Hamlet, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; and was recently commissioned by Buckingham Palace to compose music for the May 2023 coronation of King Charles III.
