Book Description

2 Jan 2014 Twilight of the Celts

The first part in an epic sequel to M.K. Hume's King Arthur trilogy

The legend of King Arthur lives on...

King Artor lies slain and Ector, a mere boy, is acknowledged as the legitimate heir to the kingdom. But the land of the Celts is weakened and Ector grows up torn between a sense of doom and duty.

Meanwhile, in the Forest of Arden, it is revealed to young Arthur that he is the Bastard Prince, son of King Artor and Lady Elayne. Trained in the skills of a warrior, Arthur cannot challenge the position of his ruler and childhood friend, but nor can he stand back and watch Briton crumble under the threat of invasion. As the Last Dragon, he must ensure that his father's legacy lives on...

Product Description

Review

Hume brings the bloody, violent, conniving world vividly to life...will appeal to those who thrill to Game of Thrones and other tales of intersecting, ever-warring, noble lineages (Kirkus Review)

Hume deftly navigates the Arthurian legends, populating them with likable and despicable characters, and casting them in a fully realized historical setting (Publishers Weekly)

Historical fiction of the most bloodthirsty and roistering kind (Australian Bookseller & Publishers Magazine)

Exciting, violent and bloody... Up there with Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell (www.lovereading.co.uk)

It's a slice of history that's totally, utterly believable. Magnificent (www.booksmonthly.co.uk)

Book Description

The legend of King Arthur lives on in this epic and dramatic new trilogy from the magnificent storyteller M. K. Hume. Sure to appeal to fans of Game of Thrones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 1 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Easy read and a good way to move away from the well known Arthur story so the saga can continue. Looking forward to the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read of post Author Britain 27 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was a compelling novel, soundly based on life in Britain in the post Author years. Cannot wait for the rest of the Celtic Series. I would recommend it to anyone who likes heartfelt novels particularly if you have an interest in life in Britain at that time.

4.0 out of 5 stars I feel like each subsequent book is slightly 27 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read every single book in M.K Hume's Dragon King series to date and sadly, I feel like each subsequent book is slightly...less good than the previous.

I'm also increasingly getting frustrated because I think the author has fallen so in love with the main characters that she's taken to justifying every single one of their actions in the book to the point where it feels like she is trying to micro manage our view of the main characters. She doesn't need to do this because the characters are all really well developed to the point that we can understand their motivations and reasons without having to be reminded that they are good guys.

Anyway that's my only criticism...I've thoroughly enjoyed the series and it's inspired me to get out into the local countryside and visit some old Roman villas, Stone Henge, Glastonbury and other towns mentioned in the book!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 8 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a bit disappointing. Some of the descriptions of place and action are great but, oh dear, the dialogue! People do not speak like this. I don't believe Celts spoke like this. I was looking forward to a series of books but this is not an investment I'll be making. Sorry.
