5.0 out of 5 stars King Arthur rescued from the mists of Camelot, 20 Feb 2013

This review is from: The Silurian, Book One: The Fox and the Bear (Kindle Edition)
L.A.Wilson has achieved the impossible and given new life to King Arthur. Farewell to the golden haired middle manager trying to be good, noble and 'nice'. Here is Arthur the Silurian with 'thick straight black hair and ebony-black eyes', emerging from the darkness of a bitter childhood to win his first battle at the age of fifteen.
This book is the first in a series which tell the story of the last defence of Britain against the invading Saxons, and of the old gods against the 'misery and sin and guilt' brought by missionary Christians.
The books are narrated by Arthur's foster brother Bedwyr, Prince of Gwynedd 'though I always preferred to be called the Fox, the name Arthur had given me when we were boys.I was the Fox and he was the Bear.' It is the Fox's love that helps Arthur to survive the cruelty of his abusive father Uthyr. I was completely drawn into this book by the passion and intensity of Bedwyr's words. He gives us the truth of his life - incredible courage, wild rebellion, the horrible intimacy of killing another person in battle, deep suffering, sexual passion and love. For me love is the power of this book. The love between Arthur and Bedwyr, love between fellow warriors facing death on the battlefield, love between parent and child, and sexual love unrestricted by gender.'Love those you are with while you live, and have no care for those who judge you, for the judges do not have to live your life.'
L.A. Wilson is my favourite author, an artist and a poet.

Good book. Took a little while to understand what was happening but once figured out nice read. Language bad n places but used in right context not just used because the author could.

2.0 out of 5 stars I gave up, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Silurian, Book One: The Fox and the Bear (Kindle Edition)
It is rare for me to stop reading a book before finishing but in this case I could only manage just over a third before the liberties taken with military equipment, the apparent ability to travel faster and easier around Britain at the end of the Roman era than on a Bank Holiday in the 21st Century and the cliche ridden references to the "front line" that would not be out of place in a novel about WWI just turned me off.
