This retelling of the Arthurian legends is just delightful. The depth and scholarship achieved by the author is amazing. The story does lag here and there, especially when recounting the adventures of some of the Knights of the Round Table. But the lags are easily forgiven, for they add a richness to the story, making it rounder, and fuller.
This is a story to re-read time and again, to savor, and remember.
What else should I tell you about Pendragon's Heir other than to go read it? While my knowledge of Arthurian legend is basic at best and spotty at worst, this book felt like what I think of when I hear the words "Camelot," "chivalry," and "King Arthur." It reads like a painting by John William Waterhouse or Edmund Blair Leighton looks.
It is true perhaps that I felt some tremors of dissatisfaction or impatience with some parts of the story, but overall, Pendragon's Heir was a wonderful, imaginative tale of chivalry and honor. It's also a book in the "I-need-to-get-a-hard-copy-of-this-rather-than-just-an-ebook" category. Which is pretty high praise from me.
There, I gushed a little. I guess it's not too hard :)
