Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The conclusion of David's 21st-century Arthurian trilogy will please fans of the previous two books, Knight Life and One Knight Only, but those expecting humorous fantasy on the level of Terry Pratchett or Monty Python will be disappointed. King Arthur, who has served as the mayor of New York City and even as president of the United States under the name Arthur Penn, is suddenly forced to tell the world who he really is and that he possesses the Holy Grail. Attempts to go mass market with the Grail's curative properties create complications involving Nazis and assorted other menaces. Despite the author's propensity for punning titles and silly archaisms like "Ye Olde Interlude," the resultant oil-and-water mixture achieves neither comedy nor drama, much less a blending of the two as in T.H. White's The Once and Future King. The incongruity of great, mythic figures behaving (or speaking) in an entirely banal and trivial manner is, alas, only that. (June) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Amazing doesn't begin to cover it.

    I thought my faith was strong before, it's even stronger now. Yes I am fully aware that this novel is fiction but oh my goodness sometimes I had to take a step back and remind myself of that. You the holy grail was interesting on its in "One Knight Only?" You ain't seen nothing yet. Or rather you ain't read nothing yet. The end of the world is near and if Arthur can't put faith in himself, much less a higher power, then will the once and future king become history once again? Read it! Read it! Read it! All will be made clear!!

    humanizes King Arthur

    Retirement doesn¿t rest easy for the once and future king. After Merlin released him from the cave after spending a millennium there recovering from Mordred¿s wound, King Arthur travels to New York where he meets the reincarnated Gwen, becomes mayor of New York City and then President of the United States. When Gwen is wounded by a terrorist and falls into an irreversible coma Arthur searches for and finds the Holy Grail and gives it to her to drink where upon she was miraculously healed. He retires from office because the world can¿t know Gwen is alive and they sail into the sunset. --- Happily even after isn¿t all it¿s cracked up to be and King Arthur is bored. When Gwen is discovered alive by spy satellites, Arthur and Gwen return to the white house and on a national TV show demonstrates the healing powers of the Grail. Everyone who is sick and ailing wants to drink from it and Arthur and Gwen, along with Sir Percival go into hiding until a businessman comes up with a way of distilling the potency of the water. Although ¿Grail Water¿ is a success, using mystical powers in such large quantities could cause a backlash that could devastate the world. --- The humor and dry wit of Peter David makes FALL OF KNIGHT a very enjoyable and entertaining reading experience. The sub-plot of a necromancer who wants to steal the Grail and use it with the Spear Lurin to wipe humanity off the face of the earth adds another layer of excitement to a richly developed storyline. Arthur is seen as a mighty warrior, a loving husband, a person who needs to help mankind and a capable of making a mistake. In other words, the author humanizes the myth and in doing so makes him even more heroic. --- Harriet Klausner
