Summary

It is 2021, and Sir Agravain's nemesis, Malagant, is back.

But Agravain, who hunted the Dread Knight during the 18th and 19th centuries, is now serving a prison sentence. Nimue, a mysterious student of Merlin, seeks King Arthur to offer him a choice.

Arthur can settle into the normal life he yearns, abandoning his estranged knight. Or risk everything he has, all he has achieved, to aid in Agravain’s escape.

The second book in the Arthurian fantasy series, The Return of King Arthur.

Turgid and wordy

The narrator reminded me of the regency actors in blackadder the third, the story is interminably dull and turgid.
This will be returned and I’ll try something else

“Goats climb, wizards arrive!”

A nice take on the Arthurian Legend, bringing him into modern times. It’s quite a slow burn, not the usual sword play of Arthur tales, but really well told with plenty of intrigue and mystery.
Great narration from Nigel with great character voices and pacing with a voice perfectly suited to this kind of tale. A true storyteller!
This is my honest opinion on a free review copy.

A second amazing story!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This author just doesn't seem to fail to bring a great story. The narrator once again hit it out of the park and I listened to this in one go. The characters are consistent from the first book to the second in their personalities and mannerisms.

The world building is just as amazing as the first one. Well done all the way around!

Assistance Needed!

The sequel to “The Ravenmaster’s Revenge” focuses mainly on Agravain, King Arthur’s beloved knight who left the knighthood in a quest to hunt down the Dread Knight and protect the people of London. Arthur is finally settling into his new life when an unexpected guest shows up at his door. Nimue the powerful lady of the lake needs his assistance… as with the first book this story moves smoothly back and forth between the past and present with the excellent narration again provided by Nigel Peever. I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Hope there is another book on the way.

A fantastic sequel to Ravenmaster. This book mainly focused on the life of Agravain, how hard it would be watch everyone around you grow old and die and you stay young. Seeing a different side Nimue emerge was nice. Can’t wait for the next book on Arthur and his knights. Nigel’s narration was another fantastic and powerful reading.

A Knight of Revenge

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
A unique and interesting tale of immortal heroes as they pass through time. Agrivain, one of King Arthur's Knights, is compelled to leave the brotherhood, The dual passages through time is masterfully revealed in flashback scenes. The narrator was exceptional. Without getting too much further into detail, I think this story is best read without foreknowledge of the outcome, as I di.d. Imaginative and horrific incidents through time have full impact in this tale. The second book in this series ended with the sense that there has to be a book three as some issues are left unresolved.

Awesome!!!

I have loved every minute of this story! I found it near impossible to pause it to get my commitments completed. My only complaint is the ending. I didn't find out the resolution to Arthur's love. I sure hope it is in the next book!!
