Uther Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Uther

    When Rome pulled it's legions home from the far-flung reaches of the Empire to defend the city against recent invaders, Britain was left to fend for itself against attacks by the Saxons, Angles and Jutes. This book, Uther, by Jack Whyte is a continuation of the story of the building of the defensive Colony of Camulod by two former Roman Legionaries, Publius Varrus and Caius Britannicus.

    The story follows Uther, the grandson of Publius Varrus. Uther's mother, Veronica, was the daughter of Publius Varrus and his father was Uric, the son of the Cambrian King Ullic. Under the leadership of Ullic, an alliance is formed between the Celtic Cambrians and the Camulodians.
    But a greater and immediate threat than the Saxons to a peaceful existence in Britain in the late 5th century is the continuous warring between the various native tribes in the country.
    Following the murder of his father, Uther becomes King of Cambria and enters a war with the brutal and murderous Gulrhys Lot, self-styled king of Cornwall. Uther receives information that Lot and his mercenaries are about to attack Cambria and Camulod. Defenses are mounted for a pre-emptive strike and Uther with his well trained
Roman-style army enters Cornwall. Uther is aided by information supplied by Lot's queen Ygraine, who hates her husband and would be rid of him.
