The Dragon and the Unicorn
A queen, a pilgrim, a demon -- and a king with a world to save
Beneath every beloved legend there is a deeper legend still, etched in ancient stone. The Dragon and the Unicorn begins before the beginning of Time, as light first cools to matter, bearing within it the electron glow of lost Heaven. Attanasio's epic tale of a quest for immortality spans all history, human and demihuman, from the dung fires on the steppes to the snows of Himalayas, from the mudhut cities on the Euphrates to the glass and steel towers of tomorrow, from the hunt for the Unicorn's horn to the ceaseless wars of elf and dragon, Celt and Roman. It is a quest that end -- and begins -- in a legend-heavy place at the edge of the Western Sea, with the first cry of a King new born. A place called Tint gel. A King, the Heir Pendragon, called Eagle of Thor, or…Arthor.
One of today's boldest, most imaginative, and most inventive authors, A. A. Attanasio unites all the legends of creation and redemption into a dream song as old as the druid chants, and as timeless as the quantum hum at creation's shinning heart.
And so a new departure in epic fantasy takes flight.

Review: The Dragon and the Unicorn (Arthor #1)User Review - Megan Coriale - Goodreads
I like the mix of religion and physics. The idea that "magic" wasn't really all that magical after all. The characters stop just shy of being believable, and it's not your typical Arthurian legend ... Read full review
