Overview

"King Arthur has dominated my life for decades and now I am banished from his side. I am not certain either of us can survive this torment..."

Lancelot, the greatest Knight of Camelot is almost flogged to death, exiled, and stripped of the King's grace. He travels from England to Europe to begin a lonely, desperate life when he meets someone who will alter his perspective forever. Suddenly, he is trapped into a fate which forces his return to England. He must fight to regain his honour and his King's life. From a world beyond ours but bound to us throughout time, the Fey hunt Arthur. They want him dead and only Lancelot can save him. Together they travel from Camelot, to Avalon and into Albion on a quest to save Arthur's soul. They must also retrieve Merlin and redeem a love which both men find hard to bear.

Lancelot and the Wolf is an adventure story of the old school, all sword and sorcery. It is also the tale of two men who have loved each other beyond all reason. This book will open your eyes to the real meaning of knightly chivalry, sacrifice and love.

    At last, a medieval fantasy book in English!
    First a confession, I am a medieval historian so while I love medieval fantasy but I really hate the mock Shakespearean language a lot of authors use. As if writing rubbish like "I beseech ye humble squire..." somehow conveys authenticity! Ms Luddington writes with good everyday language which to my mind makes a much more enjoyable read. There are also a few choice Anglo Saxon words scattered throughout as well. The story rattles along and is engaging from the start with believable characters and genuine thrills. Being heterosexual myself I did approach this book with a degree of caution after noticing the bisexual elements. But they were tastefully handled and I found it genuinely engaging.
    I know giving away the first book in a series like this is probably a hook for the rest and in this case it worked. I will be buying the others as I have to find out how this tale continues.

    A different kind of Camelot

    I admit morbid curiosity made me read this. If you have a traditional view of love and sex, this book isn’t for you. But if you think you’ve read every oddball story based on the Arthurian Legend, think again! This is Camelot meets “Brokeback Mountain” with a smattering of “Night of The Living Dead”. The throw in some dreams of wolves protecting deer, a version of Guinevere that would make Snow White’s evil queen proud, and warring factions of fey. Oh, and don’t forget to liberally sprinkle in the F word, which I don’t even think was in use during that era.

    Arthurian curiosity only goes so far.

    The “Lancelot series” by Sarah Luddington: My impressions; or, a pesudo-review

    Lancelot and the Wolf
    Lancelot and the Sword
    Lancelot and the Grail

    Sarah Luddington

    Mirador Publishing

    Genre: fantasy

    Began reading: February 5, 2012
    Finished reading: March 9, 2012-03-10

    The books drew my interest because they are Arthurian and I enjoy reading the vast variety of versions. Each is unique to the author.

    An interesting twist to the familiar story and characters. The author begins Lancelot’s story—told in first person—in the aftermath of his punishment and exile from Camelot as a result of his affair with Guinevere. Interesting in that this is the point where traditional versions are typically ending the tragedy of King Arthur. So I was interested to see just where the books were headed.

    I was neither shocked nor surprised when it eventually became apparent that Arthur and Lancelot have always had a sexual attraction to each other. And the basic thread of the novels is their love/hate relationship and the conflicts both within themselves and the social pressure against them openly showing their love. I have often wondered about the homoerotic aspects in the medieval texts. Maybe it’s my modern conventions that make me read that sort of subtexts at times. But apparently I’m not alone in my curiosity over this theme. Over all, the theme was treated quite well by Ms. Luddington. Sex was never gratuitous.

    But the characters were quite flat. As a reader, I made no emotional connection with any of the major characters. To me, the author did much better breathing life into many of the secondary characters that we got to know through Lancelot’s encounters with them.

    The plot did keep me turning pages. And each book has its own plot along with the overall story arc of all three. But I think I kept reading more because of my Arthurian curiosity than anything else. If I had not Arthurian interest and had picked up as a fantasy or romance, I would have abandoned the first book for technical reasons: anachronisms, American slang, lack of punctuation, improper word usage, poor sentence structure, etc. (But that’s me, the writer coming out.) That and the cardboard characters.

    A fourth novel is due later this year. I doubt I will pick it up. My Arthurian curiosity wore out with this one.

    The writing had lots of errors. The author misuses apostrophes


    The writing had lots of errors. The author misuses apostrophes all over the place, doesn't know the difference between "to" and "too," confuses numerous other homonyms, doesn't know the first thing about punctuation, and is the queen of run-on sentences. Commas appear where they don't belong and do not appear where they do belong. There were many, many times when I had to reread a run-on sentence several times and then punctuate it in my head in order to figure out exactly what the author was trying to say. The best thing about this book is that it's free. I did not like some of the sex scenes either.

    Great book

    When i was 3/4 through the book i started to slow down my reading. It was because i didn't want the story to end. I will be reading the other books in the series.

    Really?

    Poorly written. Good ideas, generally. The author cannot seem to paint a picture - I do not feel immersed in the time period. She obviously has not done research regarding the details of this time period. The use of language is modern with a peppering of Hollywood type period language. Very disappointing. I mourn the education systems of this world if this is to be considered a well written novel

    "King Arthur has dominated my life for decades and now I am banished from his side. I am not certain either of us can survive this torment..."
    Lancelot, the greatest Knight of Camelot is almost flogged to death, exiled, and stripped of the King's grace. He travels from England to Europe to begin a lonely, desperate life when he meets someone who will alter his perspective forever. Suddenly, he is trapped into a fate which forces his return to England. He must fight to regain his honour and his King's life. From a world beyond ours but bound to us throughout time, the Fey hunt Arthur. They want him dead and only Lancelot can save him. (From the publisher’s description)

    I’ve been a fan of Arthurian fantasy for most of my life and this description piqued my interest. I had grown tired of the run-of-the-mill retellings of the story where Lancelot falls in love with Guinevere, Arthur forgives him, Lancelot still is part of the group, everyone is happy, and so on. I wanted to see different interpretations of the story and Sarah Luddington delivered the goods, in spades. I never saw it coming, actually.

    Her characterizations of Lancelot, Else, Geraint, and then of Arthur, and finally Merlin was like finding old friends in a new, but familiar place. I agonized over Lancelot’s trials, angry at what had happened to him in Camelot. I watched his friendship with Else develop and then cheered when Geraint showed up. And I cried when he met up with Arthur.
    Lancelot and the Wolf changed the Arthurian legends, true. But I do believe that there is room for change, for a retelling where things are not as they have been but as they may have been, in a different mirror, a different time. And there are two more books, so far, in the series, Lancelot and the Sword, and Lancelot and the Grail, both of which I will be picking up soon and reading.

    Wow! That is all I can say about this book. It is the first in a series about the Knights of Camelot, more specifically the relationship between Lancelot du Lac and King Arthur. This story is not for the faint hearted, and you need an open mind to truly appreciate it. There is lots of myth and magic, and it has really got me thinking about the true history of England and how it might have been in other circumstances… Although its primary focus is relationships including love, romance and friendship, there is lots of action and bloodshed in this book, understandable given the subject matter. If you like stories of Camelot, and you like something that is outside the box, I am sure you will enjoy this. I was so excited that I had to read the second book straight after, and now I can’t wait for the third!
