An excellent climax to another fantastic trilogy.,
This review is from: The Hounds of Avalon: The Dark Age 3 (GOLLANCZ S.F.) (Paperback)
Chadbourn's previous novels were cover to cover tension, action, emotion and sensuously descriptive prose. I expected no less from this most recent installment.
"The Hounds of Avalon" seems almost a slow starter, with gentle character building and dialogue dominating the earlier chapters, but it's not long before the novel explodes into a colourful tapestry of storylines that suck you into the book, entranced and unable to put it down (I read it in a day, non-stop!)
The Third in the "Dark Ages" Trilogy, this book serves as the sequel that binds together the seemingly unrelated "The Devil in Green" and "Queen of Sinister", as well as the previous "Age of Misrule" trilogy, bringing the extended story to its climax and completion (or is it?)
Read it, but not until you have read the previous 5 books in Chadbourn's apocalyptic fairy tale.
