With Uther, Jack Whyte, author of the richly praised Camulod Chronicles, has given us a portrait of Uther Pendragon, Merlyn's shadow - his boyhood companion and closest friend. And the man who would sire the King of the Britons.
From the trials of boyhood to the new cloak of adult responsibility, we see Uther with fresh eyes. He will travel the length of the land, have adventures, and, through fate or tragedy, fall in love with the one woman he must not have. Uther is a compelling love story and, like the other books in the Camulod Chronicles, a version of the legend that is more realistic than anything that has been available to listeners before.

Poorly written. The idea for this book was good but the writing was terrible. I listened to more than half hoping it would get better but was disappointed with each chapter. The author's use of vocabulary to give depth to his characters was like putting gaudy jewelry on a Maniquin.
I have been listening to the Camulod Chronicles in order and was bummed out when this book was next. I wanted to carry on with Arthur and Merlins story, not go back to King Uther the Bully. I could not have been more wrong! I loved this book, I loved that it answered questions I didn't think it would, I loved hearing Uthers' tale from start to finish. I loved it!
I love the narrator. His voice is soothing. I'm glad they gave me the perspective from Uther's point of view.
Tell us about yourself! 70 yrs old, retired my son introd. me to audible and Im thrilled. Now live in small town in Kansas.
Wasn't sure I wanted this part of the story but it was very necessary and enjoyable
