5.0 out of 5 stars The most entertaining book I have read in a long time
This book is a thousand times better than the mojority of others in the same genre. It was masterfully written, blending pure fantasy with the traditional Authorian legend. It painted vivid pictures and presented complex personalities. The most entertaining book I have read in a long time and the best Authorian based novel I've read since "The Once and Future...

1.0 out of 5 stars 'Eagle and the Sword' drags on and on and on
'The Eagle and the Sword' is an incredibly heavy-handed dull book. Attanasio uses a running narrative for the entire 340 pages, so that instead of feeling like a part of the action, the reader is treated to a history lesson. (Example: This happened, then this happened..and then this happened..That's the basic gist of it)
At several points I found myself...

At several points I found myself wondering whether English is Attanasio's original language, or whether this book had been translated from another tongue. It's hard to believe that this is the same author responsible for the stunning Adam Lee 'Dominions of Irth' trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Darn good, 12 Jun 1998
By A Customer
The Dragon and the Unicorn Dragged on and on and on. But this sequel is much better. The original approach to King Arthor is excellent. Sure it's no A Game of Thrones, but it's a lot better than a lot of stuff you'll find out there.
