Set in an alternate version of the early twenty-first century, Brennan is Bernard Knight’s masterful retelling of the Arthurian myth in a dystopian modern world setting.
Former soldier Brennan was one of only a few thousand British survivors of a horrific series of international disasters. Five years on, he has become leader of the Welsh survivors as their supplies of food and fuel grow ever more precariously low. However, they face violent competition for these scarce resources from other groups of survivors – and to make things worse, those from other countries are raiding the UK for supplies and killing those who resist.
To stand any hope of survival, Brennan must unite the remaining Britons and lead them in resistance against those who would see them dead – but does he stand any hope of succeeding in a world already changed beyond all recognition?
