Magicians trilogy author Lev Grossman will publish a new book set in Camelot titled The Bright Sword, the AP confirmed Wednesday. 

The Bright Sword is a new take on the legend of Camelot: It picks up after the death of King Arthur, Lancelot, and Galahad and the fall of Camelot, and the knights that survive are minor characters from the Camelot legend. They form a ragtag band with Merlin’s rebellious apprentice and a promising young knight to put the kingdom back together.

The titles in Grossman’s best-selling Magicians series are The Magicians, The Magician King, and The Magician’s Land. The series was made into a Syfy show, The Magicians, in 2015.

Viking will publish the book, which doesn’t yet have a release date.
