The start of the Authur legend told from his mothers point of view...interesting mix of cultures and religions. A good story, I listened to it as an Audio Book and the female narrator did a really good job.
This tale was a first listen to see if I would like the series. I think the writing is good, but would have to read it as a written piece. The audio book was a bit long, but it was very good from a plot and narration view point. There was a depth of detail and cultural back story which made the story enjoyable, and with the slight twists on characters...like "the Merlin" and "the Lady".
The story is a lot closer to reality than most I have read.... definitly not a "Disneyfied" version of the story. The island of England at a cross roads and the influance of the women who mored it forward to what we know today.
