"The Divine Sacrifice" continues the story of King Arthur's counsellor, Malgwyn ap Cuneglas, a soldier who lost his arm in battle but was saved by his king. Malgwyn hated Arthur for this gift, but he has come to grudgingly acknowledge that he yet may have some purpose in life. Arthur and Malgwyn are called to the abbey of Glastonbury to settle a matter of great political importance - tin being mined for export to the Empire. While there, Malgwyn and Arthur meet St. Patrick, a legend in the Church who is there on a mission of his own, to root out the heresy of Pelagius. When an aged monk is found cruelly murdered in his cell, Malgwyn is faced with a problem that will test his skills as an investigator. His search for the truth may uncover a conspiracy that could endanger the kingdom.
