Set in medieval England, this quest tale finds 12-year-old Rhodri Falcon destined for adventure after a fortune-teller's prophecy. Rhodri meets Tantallon, a blind blacksmith, who introduces him to the Telling Pool, which reveals a future that includes his father's imprisonment by an evil sorceress, as well as the coming of bloody crusades, the troubles of Arthur and Guinevere, and the search for Excalibur. Narrator Gerard Doyle shows versatility as he navigates among various characters of different origins and social classes. His portrayal of Rodri is particularly adept as he expresses the insecurity, bluster, and fear of a young boy as he encounters magic, evil, and, ultimately, himself.
