Maeve, Woman of Mystery


In the aftermath of the relief of Camelot, Prince Arn, eldest son of Prince Valiant and Queen Aleta, finds himself shipwrecked on an "isle beyond the north wind."

Here he encounters Maeve, Mistress of the Hounds. He is instantly smitten.

But the mysterious Maeve has, she says, a terrible secret. Only if Arn can learn this secret and win his spurns as a knight of King Arthur's Round Table may he return to her island.

Ship's Master


Prince Valiant's longtime friend Gundar Harl has been summoned to Camelot from Thule to serve as ship's master on a voyage to find the lost colony of Thule.

Years earlier, Val's father, King Aguar of Thule, had sent forty families to colonize the newly found lands west of Greenland. Yet no one has heard from them in years, and now King Godfred of the Danes wants the lands for himself.
