    These two stories are the second and third parts of T. H. White's classic and individual fantasy novel of the Arthurian legend. Arthur has become king, Guinevere and Launcelot (The Ill-Made Knight) fall in love, and the kingdom is threatened from the north.

    Shelly M. Felton says: "I've been waiting for this..."
    "Watch out for the animal violence!"
    Overall

    I should preface this review by saying that I usually listen to audiobooks to get to sleep; only rarely do I ever listen to a book that I haven't actually read before, since it frustrates me not to be able to keep up with the storyline of something with which I'm not familiar. This is about the only series of Arthurian tales I haven't read before, so I thought it was all well. I loved Sword in the Stone, though I was surprised at the level of violence; still, it was tolerably within my threshold. However, at one point during this second installation, I awoke in the middle of the night to a gruesome and shockingly graphic description of violence done to an animal. Perhaps at 35 I am too old to be getting nightmares from books, but I did--for about a week afterward!! I don't think I am extraordinarily sensitive; perhaps a little bit. I felt compelled to report it, in case I might spare someone else who is equally sensitive. As for the actual production, it is stellar. The narrator is absolutely wonderful.
