Believable legend, 13 April 2000
At last here is is the Arthurian legend set out in all it bloody detail. Rather than relying on christinised tales these stories present a believavle account of Arthur. Taking into account both archaeology, history, legend and common sense this book is possibly the best ever written about Arthur. The battle scenes are unnervingly brutal, while the stories of love and betrayal are equally moving. It is impossible to do this book justice. This is the Arthurian legend as it should be... Raw, moving and above all believable. Arthur is not the goody goody christian of earler tales but the raw savage warlord seeking to protect Britain from the Saxon invaders. This book is amazing as is the rest of the trilogy. Read them all.
