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,
Epic, exciting, addictive
I thought he did a good job on the Winter King, but some of the Monty Python-esque women's voices were a bit awkward. Here though, he really comes into his own - more relaxed and reading it almost as if he wrote the book himself such is his understanding of the material.
Both, but it doesn't take much to make me do either!
I'm halfway through the audio version of the final book in the trilogy and it has to be said this one, Enemy of God, is the best in the series by some way. It really had me wanting to keep listening especially during the middle section as it was so exciting (and I had read the books, twice, years ago so I had an idea of what happened anyway)!
