Top Cow has sent Major Spoilers the cover images and solicitation information for titles shipping in May 2008.
A tale spanning two eras: In the present day a circle of stones is discovered on Mars featuring a cache of encased Latin scrolls and an elegant sword. Jennifer Drake was famed for turning her vivid dreams into best selling historical fiction. Now experts translate the scrolls and find they match passages from her novels. In the Dark Ages, following the death of King Arthur and his Knights, Guinevere took Excalibur and attempted to use it to prevent a Saxon invasion and heal the fractured land. Two stories intertwine, one of a fractious past and the end of magic, the other of a hopeful present and its return.
Featuring a beautiful painted cover by Star Wars and Indiana Jones movie poster artist Drew Struzan!
