    Recommended!

    This was the first book I've read by David Clement-Davies and I was impressed. The character development was good, the plot was exciting, and the way the author got to the end of the story was told at the right pace. I really enjoyed the falconry aspect of the book. You don't need to be involved in the sport to enjoy that part of the book. I love that the animals are part of the story and characters as well. I will definitely pick up one of this other books! If you enjoy science fiction or have an interest in the time that the Arthurian legend takes place or that legend itself, you will want to read this book!

    Highly Recomended

    This book is the best book that I have ever read. It is crwling with excrusiating detail to every sentence in this 360 page book. I highly recomend this great book to any reader at a reasonable age who loves to read books that litteraly pull your heart out of the book. (Hint Hint, Someones heart really does get pulled out in this book.) Enjoy!

    Excellent and a fun read

    ¿The Telling Pool¿ by David Clement is an excellent fantasy novel with an odd start but gets better as you read. This book takes place in the time after King Arthur¿s court. The story is about Rhodri¿s father, Owen, going to war for two years but when he comes back he has many outbursts due to an evil enchantress steeling his heart (literally). Now it is up to Rhodri to find his fathers heart and find the mythical sword Excalibur which all leads up to the biggest decision of his life¿ his father¿s life or his own. This book is told in third person with simple grammar. The characters talk with an olden tongue which is very interesting to read. Over all this is an excellent book that I would recommend to everyone.

    A Very Fun Book To Read

    Seemingly unlike all the other reviewers, I did not in fact like The Sight, and I never read The Firebringer. However, I greatly enjoyed this story. Perhaps it is my enduring love of King Arthur. Anyway, any fans of King Arthur legend are encouraged to try this out!

    Intriguing

    'The Telling Pool' definitely kept me interested. I lvoed the way it took the story with King Arthur and Excalibur/Mythirion and kind of twisted it to fit the storyline. It was a little diffeent than his other novels, in the sense that it was about a human and not an animal, though it did have a lot about falconry in it. Overall an excellent read, and recommended for David Clement-Davies fans!

    Another Good One

    Being a fan of the Sight and Fire Bringer, I was not dissapointed with Davied Clement-Davies newest book. Set in a slightly different way from his usual style, I still loved it, finding the characters just as lovable as Larka from the Sight. Somehow this book was different from his usual style but I still loved it and it was one of those books you can't put down.

    Just read it!

    This was an enchanting book set in the Holy Wars that relates back to King Arthur, Guinevere, Merlin, and all the heroes and villains of Arthurian legend. The beginning may seem like it is unnecessary, but read on! In a chapter or two, you'll realize those chapters add depth to the story! Written by David Clement-Davies, the author of FIRE BRINGER and THE SIGHT, this book will keep you spellbound from start to finish. Just quit looking at the reviews and read it for yourself!
