    1. Well, what a disappointing book I love the character of Bedivere and I was excited to read a book with him as the protagonist, especially since the back cover promised me an imaginative extension of the Arthurian legend What I got was decidedly generic and painfully mediocre It s one of those cases where I read the other mostly four star reviews on here and wonder if we even read the same book minor spoilers ahead Right near the beginning of the book we re introduced to the character of Irion, a [...]


    2. Excellent YA Novel that takes a historical slant on Post Arthur Britain The novel primarily follows two narrators Bedwyr ap Griffin, called Bedwyr Mawr, Arthur s close companion 12 years have passed since he disobeyed Arthur s order to toss Caliburn, the King s sword, into a mere near Camlann Bedwyr returns from serving Rome to find a Britain torn apart by factions and the sword gone Joining him in narration is Irion ap Medraut, the grandson of Arthur and son of the woman Bedwyr loved Raised by [...]


    3. This is a superbly told tale in the Arthurian tradition, taking place after Arthur has fallen The Saxons have gained control of Camelot and are pillaging villages throughout England This is the story of two men One, Irion, Arthur s grandson, is trying to gain favor with his fellow countrymen despite his own father s betrayal of the great king The other, Bedwyr, one of Arthur s most trusted men, has recently come back from Rome to complete a task he did not finish a task entrusted to him by the d [...]


    4. Robert Rice has produced an imaginative sequel to the Arthurian legends Using a Dark Ages backdrop akin to Bernard Cornwell s Arthur trilogy rather than classic Malory, Rice tells the story of those who survived Camlann and subsequently struggle against Saxon domination It s a decent story with nice action.
