Overview

Enemy of God (Warlord Chronicles Series #2) by Bernard Cornwell

With The Winter King, the first volume of his magnificent Warlord Chronicles, Bernard Cornwell established himself as the storyteller who could reinvent the legend of King Arthur for our time.

Now with Enemy of God, Cornwell's magical re-creation continues. Having defeated the last holdouts of civil war in southern Britain, Arthur has secured Mordred's throne. But he must still face raging conflicts between the old ways and the new, as well as foes more powerful and more dangerous—because they pose as friends.

Brilliantly written and peopled with the familiar faces of legend along with new ones, Enemy of God is an immensely powerful continuation of a modern classic.

After a hard fought victory at Lugg Vale, Arthur and Derfel hope for peace but alas it is not to be. In this second book in Cornwell¿s Warlord series the Arthurian legend continues. Derfel finds the love of his life and becomes a ¿Lord of War¿ while Arthur suffers his worst betrayal, and of course there is plenty of fighting. ¿Enemy of God¿ is a completely new chapter in the Arthurian legend in which Cornwell transforms Merlin into a real and loveable character and introduces the reader to much of the magic and mystery of the Druid. The story takes the reader into the reign of King Mordred and the dark times that follow. In this installment Derfel is at his happiest while Arthur is brought to the depths of despair. This is my favorite of the three books because the story brings out such deep emotions and leaves such a lasting impression.

I enjoyed this book just as much as I enjoyed the first one. It is a continuation of Arthur's saga told from one of his soldier's point of view. With Christianity sweeping over Europe Arthur and a select few remain loyal to the "old gods" This causes a rift amongst christians and him. They call him the Enemy of God. Power hungry Lancelot tries to take advantage of this situation and converts to Christianity and take over England from Arthur. The book ends with Arthur foiling Lancelot's plan but he is devastated because his one true love, Guinvere, has fallen in love with Lancelot. Thus ending their marriage.

The characters are very real, and the plot was more exciting than the first book in the series. If you love British history, and the Arthur myth the book is a must.
