Overview

The Light of Civilization is Fading...

The empire that ruled the world is crumbling, and darkness is falling. Cities burn, armies pillage, and warlords struggle for domination. In the shadow of Rome's fall, the land of Britannia is divided and bleeding.

Uther Pendragon and his allies journey to the heart of the dying empire, lead great armies, and forge a fragile alliance, the last hope to preserve the fading light of civilization. Amidst the ruins of Roman power and glory, the free peoples of Britannia make their last stand against the forces of darkness.

On blood-soaked battlefields and before towered fortresses under siege, Uther and his warriors wage the final war for the future of Britannia. But will victory come at too high a cost?

Before King Arthur, before the round table, before Camelot...there was Uther Pendragon, Britannia's greatest warrior. This is his story.

    Gritty, realistic fantasy

    This was a very interesting take on the Arthurian legends, dealing with Arthur's father, Uther Pendragon. It begins with a young Uther who gets swept up in historical events related to the fall of Rome.

    It is well-written and full of action. Definitely not a black and white good guys vs. bad, though there are bad guys. It's a little more complex in terms of ethics and motivations than a lot of fantasy.

    I enjoyed it very much.

    I really like Jay Allan's "Crimson Marines" series, but he is a poor student of history. The Saxons saved Britain by freeing it from the Roman Empire which had enslaved them for 400 years. This is a good action story but the Romans, with their sadism, orgies, slavery, and gladiatorial games wre the real barbarians.
