Overview

The second thrilling novel in Kevin Crossley-Holland's bestselling Arthur trilogy Arthur de Caldicot has achieved his dream: He now serves as squire to Lord Stephen of Holt Castle. But this new world opens up fresh visions as well as old concerns. Arthur longs to escape the shadow of his unfeeling father and meet his birth mother. To marry the beautiful Winnie, but maintain his ties with his friend Gatty. And to become a Crusader, with all the questions of might and right involved. Just as he so brilliantly did in THE SEEING STONE, Kevin Crossley-Holland weaves Arthurian legend with everyday medieval life in the unforgettable story of one hero's coming of age.

Some of the complexities are good but could have been written with a better eye for context.

This book was excellent, just like the prequel, The Seeing Stone. It was exciting, extremely interesting , and a great read. This is the story of the young squire, Arthur, who is not only going to fight in the Crusades, alongside his lord, Lord Stephen, but also trying to find his place among his family, foster family, friends, and between the Middle Ages and the past. I definitely cannot wait to follow Arthur's adventures in the seqeul, King of the Middle March.

Just as in the seeing stone, the author has woven a spell-binding book that pulls you in and lets you believe you are there. A great book both for the young and the young at heart.
