    Good story line but ...

    I found this to be about average for the series as a whole. There are some great elements in Jack's King Arthur novels, but they move along much too slowly. Some interesting threads get dropped before he has a chance to develop them.

    exciting finish to a strong epic saga

    Hearing tales that King Arthur of Camulod insists that laws should rule not personalities, wealth or power, young Gaul noble Clothar believes the High King is right with this novel concept. When he also learns of honorable deeds performed by those sworn to Arthur, Clothar decides to join the High King¿s court. Especially exciting the idealistic knight is the long term goal of a united England living in peace, prosperity, and preparedness especially from outside Saxon invasion. Clothar joins those loyal to King Arthur. Arthur¿s aspirations are difficult to achieve because provincial monarchs refuse to cede power to him without a struggle. Two particular kings Symmachus and Connlyn unite to oppose King Arthur. Meanwhile within Camulod, Clothar is attracted to Arthur¿s wife Queen Guinevere though he knows no honor if he ever acts upon his deep feelings for her. As Clothar still holds to the dream of a united peaceful kingdom, he is sent to his home to save Gaul from the invading Huns. Several years later he returns to Camulod in time for a final encounter with the forces led by the rebellious provincial monarchs. --- The ninth and final Camulod novel is an exciting finish to a strong epic saga. The tale is told by Clothar so much of the story line occurs away from Camulod so to a degree, newcomers can enjoy the last book however, to better understand how the three heroes (Clothar, Arthur and Guinevere) got to where they are, previous tales are a must. Shockingly to this reader, after eight strong tales with many detours and sidebars, the final battle between the progressives and the status quo seems rushed. Still Jack Whyte¿s final installment will please Camulod fans as he completes his interpretation of the legend. --- Harriet Klausner

    An (Almost ) Perfect Ending

    This last tome from Jack Whyte concludes the Camulod Chronicles. It finally fills-in the relationship between Arthur, Clothar (Lancelot) and you-know-who. It's a plausable and satisfying ending. The series still leaves the early and developing relationship between Arthur and Clothar missing in the years between 'The Lance Thrower' and 'The Eagle' unexplained. There's a book missing somehow, between these two. But, overall it's a terrific and compelling read.
