Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Bridging the gap between Game of Thrones and Bernard Cornwell comes the third chapter in James Wilde's epic adventure of betrayal, battle and bloodshed.

For all the darkness in the land, there is hope. And it rests with one man. Lucanus - the one they call the Wolf - is a warrior. He wears the ancient crown of the great war leader Pendragon, and he wields a sword bestowed upon him by the druids. And he is the guardian of a secret entrusted to him and to protect that secret will demand untold bravery and sacrifice beyond measure - but to lose it would mean the end of everything worth fighting for. 

Before Camelot. Before Excalibur. Before all you know of King Arthur. Here is the beginning of that legend....

Enjoyable

It doesn't exactly blow you away but not bad. I can't really put my finger on why.

"Men of Towns"

This book was an excellent conclusion to an excellent series. I remember listening to the first book as the Auxiliarys rode out North never to return and the same mystery and excitement continued throughout. I'm mainly leaving this review to say how saddened I was that the forest king died. He was possibly my favourite character or the series and the Audiobook portreal was probably the one of the single best I have ever heard. Below may or may not be a quote. "Men of Towns, you grow soft behind your walls and know longer feel the wild and the gods" Said in a deep Westcountry accent that could shake the earth and talk to Cernunnos.
