The continuing story of Arthur, the second in a trilogy which began with The Winter King. The novels bring Arthur and his world to vivid life. A man battling for his vision of the future in a brutal age, dragged down by suspicions and magics of the past, surrounded by intrigue, dependent on his skill at war and genius for leadership.

The best how it could of been Arthur story I have read. Cornwell knows his history, and really makes the post British Roman dark age world come alive.
All of it. just a really good yarn
I would say that Tim Pigott-Smith is better narrator on the abridged version, but Keeble does a good job.
A real page turner. If you want to escape from your own world for a few hours then listen to these stories
Obviously not a factual story of a post Roman world of Britain, but gives you an insight into what problems a post Roman British leader would of faced in the 5th century
this was a good story but didn't flow. some great concepts though. it has some great overlapping story's but somehow it seems to drag on a little in places compared to his other work.
This is the 2nd I have read, I have paid for the 3rd, these books have kept spell bound with not wanting to stop reading, I was forced several time
Dervil I could see his point of view, and had wanted to slay Lancelot as soon as I could,
I certainly at times became part of the book falling in love several times.
I will read more books absolutely,
