Bernard Cornwell downplays the magic that enlivens the traditional stories, depicting it more as a combination of superstition and shrewd wits. I recommend this with reservations; though it's absorbing to read, the emphasis on battles and politics means that this will greatly appeal to some fantasy readers, but disappoint others.
Read the first page, I can promise you you will want to read more.
The story was fresh, the combat well done, the characters likeable and real, magic believable, and so many other great aspects.
Bernard Cornwell is a master of historical fiction, and this, the first in a series about Arthur, is a great tale.
Incredible retelling of the arturian legend!Published 11 hours ago by Bruno Furtado Montes Oliveira
Well written and has a good story, especially if you enjoy books of knights and King Arthur. A good, fresh take on an old story.Published 5 days ago by Michael McLarnon
This series is pretty good. Though I find the caracter of Derfel to be much more interesting than Arthur himself. Still it's a must have for any Arthur or medieval fan.Published 11 days ago by Ronald Franklin Hall Jr
Absolutely love this book (series).
Great read for any fan of the Saxon Tales or Game of Thrones. Read more
It's pretty soapy, just like all other Arthur stories. I was hopeing Cornwell would have made more of a war story out of it.Published 14 days ago by Myall25

A truly thought-provoking take on the traditional King Arthur story. All 3 books of the Warlord Chronicles are wonderfully written!Published 27 days ago by becruzen
