    I read this book in high school I'm sure I read it before the year I graduated but since I can't remember the specific year I'll just put 96 This book was fantastic when I read it in High School It was truly a different perspective to the story of King Arthur than in books that I originally read on Arthur It's interesting that in many depictions of Arthur the version of Christianity that he is depicted of following differs from story to story and in this version Arthur's Christianity probably follows a Gnostic version of Christianity as a result of Merlin's Atlantean Mystic leanings All in all this novel includes a lot Celtic ideas than other versions of King Arthur's story Great read

    A really cool and epic Arthurian retelling The best I've ever read It's all so real and I can totally see every single part happening in real lifeThe characters are all very real and 3 D not really relatable in the sense of the word but there are certainly things to connect with The story tellers each have a uniue voice and cadence and I really love how it doesn't switch POVs except in each book 'part' so I can get stuck nice and comfortably inside one person's headThe writing style is often hard to read wherefore this book isn't just a pick up and go sort of thing and it can seem to drag at times just because of thatThe plot itself kept up a good pace most of the time and I really liked the ending Just the hinting of a distant hope because King Arthur will return one day It gave me legit shiversI definitely recommend this series to everyone but probably mostly 14 ish A rather good read indeed although I still think the first one is the best

    I need to read this one again but I remember Arthur and loving this book


  5. Elise Elise says:

    Then upon waking one morning it came into my mind that Morgian ueen of Air and Darkness was fear driven It is so simple Why did she act now after all these years? Because something drove her to act – and the something was fear Morgian was afraidI'm so glad I got around to re reading this book It's such a brilliant book about the Arthurian legend It shows Arthur becoming a great and strong king to rule over Britain but also focus' on the other people that helped get him there with a huge focus on the MerlinArthur friendshipI think my favourite parts will always be the parts between Merlin and Morgian the way you can feel their old friendship still lingering just below the surface but it can never be the same way ever again because too much has happenedThe one thing I don't really enjoy about Lawhead's writing is the way he drags on the battles and camping scenes I understand their relevance but a lot of the time the small battles that mean nothing go on for pages and then aren't at all related to the task at hand and that bothers me a fair bit about his writing and seems to be a common elementI do love how descriptive he is with scenery and characters and how extremely evolved his characters are they feel so real and are very relatedable which is sometimes hard to find with Arthurian literature

    Lawhead's continues his Pendragon series with Arthur Like the first two books I also enjoyed reading this book In this story we see Arthur become the foretold high king ruler of the Isle of the Mighty We are taken through the arduous process Arthur must undertake to create the Kingdom of Summer Arthur and Myrddin must combat treasonous kings as well as multiple invasions of Britain by barbarians The battle seuences are epic and very well told I'm glad Lawhead chose to use the first person account of the story once again this time from a perspective of three characters I gave this book four stars because of two reasons The ending was a bit odd and appeared abrupt as if injected to meet a deadline Also like the other books there's a good deal of Christianity wrapped into the story as there may have been in 4th and 5th century Britain However I found it less intertwined and preachy in this book


  7. Toby Brennen Toby Brennen says:

    Just finished the 3rd in Stephen Lawheads 'Pendragon Cycle' Arthur While it took me longer to get through than the previous two books it was no less entertaining Lawhead continues to weave wonder fiction around history and myth While the depth of character was maintained in this book the storyline was not nearly as detailed as the earlier ones To portray Arthur as a master strategist the story is filled with the history and detail of many battles The unfortunate thing is that the story between these battles often seemed forced nor as detailed as his prior books This is not necessarily a bad thing because it helped paint the picture that this time of Arthur's life was filled with the intensity of war The ending of the book was sudden uick and caught me totally unprepared


  8. Mark Mark says:

    A beautiful epic treatment of the Arthurian legends with several interesting twists that diverge from what I was expecting The Celtic or Old English interpretations of several names made each new character a mysterious revelation and the multiple narrators made the story a fascinating shift of perspectives Yet through it all was a sense of nobility and heroism that I deeply appreciated Most surprising was the esteem in which the Christian faith has been upheld through the books so far As big a fan I am of Bernard Cornwell's historical warfare fiction including another spin on the Arthurian legend his work is vehemently anti Christian or at the very least anti churchso it was refreshing to read of Christianity as a light in the world instead of the ugly corrupt caricatures found in Cornwell's stories I am anxious to get started on Pendragon


  9. Miriam Cihodariu Miriam Cihodariu says:

    With the third book the events take us even closer to the heart of the Arthurian legends every secondary character from Malory's tales has the accurate appearance here as well but in a much enjoyable narrative The round table the values of emerging Christianity blending with the Celtic lore of old everything is here in a very satisfying way But what makes the book really great is the plausible and well documented way in which the historical times of the 6 7th century Britain are also portrayed The battle with foreign invaders Catharge refugees the tense relationships between the many British kings and the similar social structure of Ireland everything comes together in a most vivid and plausible world picture


  10. Jodi Woody Jodi Woody says:

    Continuing on in the Pendragon series Arthur is a great read I love this series and having a thing for Arthurian Legend I have read a lot of these This is now my favorite Arthurian series I love the rich language the writing reminds me of JR Tolkien Lawhead is a great storyteller and his characters come alive This series is written with Arthur and Merlin as followers of Jehu Jesus and is full of honor and bravery Some of they typical Arthurian characters are missing and some have come in a new and different way I give it five stars No swearing and no sexual content I can recommend for ages 14 and up though it is geared for adult reading
