'THE GRAIL IS A STORY, A MYTH! IT DIDN'T EXIST ON YOUR WORLD! IT CAN'T EXIST HERE!'
The city-state of Varuz is failing. The capital is crumbling, and its enemies are poised to invade. Duke Aurelian is preparing to gamble everything on one last battle. So when a holy man, the Doctor, comes to Varuz from beyond the mountains, Aurelian asks for his blessing in the war.
But all is not what it seems. The city-guard have lasers for swords, and the halls are lit by electric candlelight. Aurelian's wife and his trusted knight seem to be plotting to overthrow their Duke, and Clara finds herself drawn into their intrigue...
Will the Doctor stop Aurelian from going to war? Will Clara's involvement in the plot be discovered? Why is the enemy's ambassador so nervous? And who are the ancient and weary knights who arrive in Varuz claiming to be on a quest for the Holy Grail...?
This trilogy of adventures across time and space follows the Doctor's search for the Glamour, the most desirable — and dangerous — artefact in the universe.
An original novel featuring the Twelfth Doctor and Clara as played by Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman
