Overview

Bernard Cornwell's internationally bestselling King Arthur Trilogy tells the mythic saga of King Arthur and is the work of a magnificent storyteller at the height of his powers.

THE WINTER KING
The novel is set in Dark Age Britain in a land where Arthur has been banished and Merlin has disappeared, where a child-king sits unprotected on the throne, where religion vies with magic for the souls of the people. It is to this desperate land that Arthur returns, a man at once utterly human and truly heroic; a man who loves Guinevere more passionately than he should; a man whose life is at once tragic and triumphant.

ENEMY OF GOD
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.

EXCALIBUR
The unforgettable tale of Arthur's final struggles against the Saxons and his last attempts to triumph over a ruined marriage and ravaged dreams as forces both earthly and unearthly threaten everything Arthur stands for. Peopled by princesses and bards, by warriors and magicians, Excalibur is the story of love, war, loyalty, and betrayal.

Cornwell reignites my interest in the Legend of Arthur, but gives it a much more realistic and believable and background story. The Warlord Chronicles, alongside the Saxon Chronicles, provide so much more wonder around the events leading to Modern England.

Superb writing, compelling story. If you like heros, villains and just enough magic, this is for you. Engrossing from start to finish. The best Arthur ever.

Intellectually, I know this myth is as plausible as the Arthurian tales we all know and love, but I need my heros to stay my heros and Merlin's magic to weave light and pure. I'll even applaud Jack Whyte's version of science lending to magic but magic represented primarily as prancing, spitting madmen spouting darkness and child sacrifice? No. I appreciate the historical research and the intelligence of the writing. The characters and plotline were fully developed but I wanted an editor's red pen to slash through about 80% of the battle detail and redundant themes and dialogue. I like the author's imagination and have purchased several of his books but we need our heros to stay our heros and not be reduced in almost every aspect to the lowest common denominator. The three books should have been fine tuned into one...bet Davydd did that.

I enjoy all of Bernard Cornwell's work but this reimagining of the King Arthur legend is his best.
