    This is the version of the legendary King Arthur where he s at odds with the Roman Empire when he s not having to deal with Saxons, Jutes and Picts The story is told by Arthur in the first person and sometimes not and other characters in the third person I don t have a problem with different POV s but usually authors will separate the storytellers appropriately, like in different chapters Here the change can go abruptly from one paragraph to another I was constantly being pulled out of the This is the version of the legendary King Arthur where he s at odds with the Roman Empire when he s not having to deal with Saxons, Jutes and Picts The story is told by Arthur in the first person and sometimes not and other characters in the third person I don t have a problem with different POV s but usually authors will separate the storytellers appropriately, like in different chapters Here the change can go abruptly from one paragraph to another I was constantly being pulled out of the story as I tried to figure out who the heck was talking Not that Arthur was that great a storyteller himself His dialogue soundslike someone reading a text book or the transcript to a documentary.There is potential here and the book does have good momentum I just feel author Paul Bannister s writing could use a bitpolish

    The emphasis ison fiction than on historical and the author admits that he rearranges facts to tell a story This is the middle book of a trilogy so it s no surprise that Arthur is still alive at the end.Arthur is the narrator and the style is almost lyrical like a bard seated in a castle hall telling a tale to an audience.Mr Bannister includes enough tantalizing details that I almost believed that Arthur was the Arthur of the Camelot myth history.The story is set in Britain in The emphasis ison fiction than on historical and the author admits that he rearranges facts to tell a story This is the middle book of a trilogy so it s no surprise that Arthur is still alive at the end.Arthur is the narrator and the style is almost lyrical like a bard seated in a castle hall telling a tale to an audience.Mr Bannister includes enough tantalizing details that I almost believed that Arthur was the Arthur of the Camelot myth history.The story is set in Britain in the 3rd century CE but I was puzzled when magi visited the druid wizard The magi knew Sennacherib the king of Assyria who lived in the 7th century BCE I must have missed the connection.No sexNon graphic violence appropriate to the era

    Enjoyed the premise Did not enjoy the repetitive explanations of this character being a Druid, etc Maybe once, near the beginning of the book, but not over and over, at least once a chapter if that particular character came up.


  5. Chris Mort Chris Mort says:

    The author does a good job of weaving the historical fact and the fiction However, a large part of the book regurgitated the previous book and there is a lot of repeating and explaining past events.

    Britons, Saxons, Celts, Picts, and Romans Throw in a Wizard and a Sorceress and you have a great story Can t wait to finish the Trilogy.
