A story of love, war, loyalty and betrayal, Excalibur begins with the failure of Lancelot's rebellion and the ruin of Arthur's marriage to Guinevere. The Saxons, sensing the disunity of the Britons, seize the chance to destroy Arthur. The climax of the war comes with the legendary triumph at Mount Badon, and Arthur`s great victory. But the promises he made then come back to haunt him after the years of peace and glory.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Having the entire story read

Any additional comments?

Audible have missed out the last few chapters like they did with LOTR:Return of the King where they missed out the appendices.

The plots are still good but I prefer the narrator from the two previous SPQR books
