King Maker

the introduction to the story was good. We learn a bit about Luther (this version's Uther), the neighborhood, and the changes and adjustments from the traditional Arthurian Legend. As the story starts, you may find it a bit slow, but I was still on board. Until the author used each new chapter to introduce new character's. It got ridiculous. It was hard to keep track of who was who, what gang they belonged to (if any at all). If they believed in magic, if they were magical, or if they thought other folks were just weird. We get it, life sucks in Brenton Court and everyone has a sad story. There was no need to actually tell everyone's story. Especially those who you killed a page after you finished telling their sad tale. The focus on King (Arthur) doesn't come until the end of the book. Along with the magic and the battle of good versus evil. By then I was still zoned out, barely cared about any of the character's, and hoping the second book would be better.

King's Justice

The same issues that plagued the first book continued on here, to many character's. Way to many new people were introduced, it was once again hard to keep track of who is who, and what is what. The only thing that is clear, once again, is that life sucks for everybody. The magic was definitely an after thought, and for an Athurian Legend it seemed King (Arthur) was forgotten about.

King's War

The story is wrapped up nice and neat. It is a true trilogy, the tale ends here. There is no big twist. Although there have been variations of the Authurian Legend they all end pretty much the same way, and this story is no exception.

They best way I can sum up this series is if I was pitching it to Hollywood I would say its the Wire meets King Arthur set in modern day Indianapolis. The problem is it lacks the drama and excitement of The Wire and the magic and mysticism of Camelot. It was a failed attempt, but a great idea.
