I absolutely love Grail Lore stories. But you don't often see an author with the passion, imagination and love for details as you do with Cynthia Breeding. She has the Arthurian Legend series moving into multiple books (Camelot's Destiny, Kensington 2006; Fate of Camelot, Highland Press, 2008) and the newest in the entry ?Prelude to Camelot (Highland Press, 2009). I think Prelude is my favorite. So often we are treated to the Richard Harris - Sean Connery elderly King Arthur. We had glimpses of a young Arthur in John Boorman's "Excalibur" in the form of Nigel Terry, but it was a pencil sketch at best, making me hunger for a true young Arthur hell-bent on forging Britain into one Kingdom. I am delighted to say, Breeding delivers on all levels. Her vision of the young warrior-king Arthur was amazing, alive, vital, yet with reverence for Grail Lore tradition. She has the magic touch of keeping the well-known stories as road markers, yet amazingly give you living, breath, full-blooded men and women that just leap off the pages. Even with the much loved Mists of Avalon, I often felt I never really KNEW Arthur, his lady or Lancelot. Not so with this amazing series. You simply forget you are reading a much told tale, as Breeding makes this series fresh, new. Walking that razor's edge is hard to do, but she dances along that edge with light and magic. I cannot recommend these enough and am eagerly waiting the next installment.
