Publisher's Summary

Picture a world intricately entwined with our own, yet separate, pulsing with the raw energy and vivid color of Celtic myth come to life. Picture Albion.

And enter Lewis Gillies, an Oxford student whose search for a missing friend leads him through a door to another reality, and to unimagined discoveries about life, good and evil, and his own identity and destiny.

Having ascended the throne as Albion's High King, Llew takes the beautiful Goewyn for his queen. But in the midst of their joyous union, treachery is in the making, forcing Llew to choose between the honor of his kingship and the desire of his heart.

His decision drives him across the sea, far beyond Albion to the dark terrors and haunted wastes of the Foul Land. There, as the fabric of two worlds unravels, Llew hurtles headlong toward a final conflict with the Brazen Man. In the balance hangs not only the fate of Goewyn but also the very life-song of Albion, contained within the mystical Singing Stones.

Don't miss the rest of the books in this exciting series: Book 1, The Paradise War and Book 2, The Silver Hand.

    "Better the second time"

    I found this trilogy to be fascinating. If you've read Joseph Campbell's description of the hero in mythology then you will better understand this story. Lewis is similar to Frodo, Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter; all share the same fate. In addition, check out the Celtic myth of Lugh.

    To understand Lawhead's mythology/theology I recommend reading his biography of St. Patrick, "Patrick" and note how it compares to this story.

    It was the second time I listened to this trilogy that I truly enjoyed it. Knowing what's going to happen makes it easier to understand Lawhead's symbolism. This is a bard's tale.

    "The Endless Knot: Song of Albion Book 3"


    Again Stephan R Lawhead has brought amazing adventure in a well written book about the "time between times" and different realities. Starting in London, and ending in the amazing world of Albion,the island of the blessed. Death, evil, battled by true hearts and even truer friends as they battle their way through trial and testing. Love the whole series.

    "Brilliant"
    Would you listen to The Endless Knot again? Why?

    I have listened to the trilogy twice, and read it three times. Love Stephens work.


    What other book might you compare The Endless Knot to and why?

    I might compare it to Tolkiens, Middle earth works, but that comparison is over used, closer comparison would be, i guess, C.S. Lewis, because of the two seperate but connected worlds of Albion and Earth, and Narnia and Earth.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Whitfield’s performances?

    Not real happy with the change of narrator at the end of a series, he did a good job but the differences in pronunciation was frustrating and a bit disorienting to me. Mr. Whitfield did a good job and yes I would listen again, if the book was to my interest as well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Love the series, love the author, wish I could visit Albion myself.


    Any additional comments?

    The series, wonderful, the Author, briliant, The Performance of Mr Whitfield very well done, if perhaps ill placed in the series, if you start with a voice and performance don't change actors at the end. I think that if he had started the series and done all 3 books it might have been better.

    "Wonderful book - poor narrator choice"

    I grew up reading Lawhead books and this series was one of my favorite so it has been a delight to listen to again. The book/series/story/plot/etc all get 5 stars (more if I could). However, Robert Whitfield butchered the narration. I actually like his "narrator" voice - I really liked his reading of The Great Divorce - but in this book his character voices are horrible. He makes Scatha sound like a shrill drunk Indian woman, Tegid like an old wheezy, raspy man who's been smoking most of his life and everything he says is of dire consequence. I could go on... In fact, Whitfield's Scottish accents in general just hurt the ears. Also, uses different pronunciation for words. It's like he didn't even listen to Stuart Langston's performance of the previous books and instead struck out on his own course. I don't know who's pronunciations are more correct but once started they should have kept it consistent.

    Maybe (but only maybe) it wouldn't be so bad if Whitfield had read the first two, but after getting so used to the previous narrator, Stuart Langston, it is hard to switch gears. Other reviewers said Stuart Langston was flat and monotone (I disagreed). Well, certainly no one will say that about Whitfield, but he could use some toning down.

    Don't let it deter you from the story, though - it's worth the pain! I just wish they would re-do the narration and either get Stuart Langston back or someone who can at least try to mimic his performance so it isn't such a jarring transition.

    "Greatfantasy with real life application"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Endless Knot to be better than the print version?

    When you are not able to hold a book. This is a great alternative


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Endless Knot?

    The most memorable moment in the Endless Knot is the Hero Feat


    What does Robert Whitfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Certain emotions of the character can certainly come out in this audio expression


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Hero Feat

    Any additional comments?

    The one weird part is this book is read by a different guy then the first two, makes it very different. but the book is a great conclusion, it shows the danger of ruining a magical world, and yet no matter how hard people try there are forces at work that will fix everything

    "Ok, but not great"
    What would have made The Endless Knot better?

    Spoiler alert. The first two books were decent, but this one was lacking. Mostly it was a depressing drag through a dismal land. The story builds up to a final conflict that never really materializes. When the final battle, if it could be called a battle, happens, it is over in about 5 minutes.
    Just a disappointing book.
    A more meaningful dialog between Simon and Lewis. An explanation on how Simon new about Albion to begin with and what involvement his father had in hatching the takeover plan. Overall, the book just had too many story lines left open.


    What was most disappointing about Stephen R. Lawhead???s story?

    No real battles and the final ending is unbelievable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "why does this narrator think celts are from India"

    This book is just as good as the 1st 2 with one glaring exception this narrator is terrible. He seems to think the Celtic people are from India. Rather than the strong Celtic dialect we are forced to listen to Indian dialect.

    "Great finish to the story, good narrator"

    I love Lawhead and this was a great finish to the series. If I do have one complaint, and therefore the reason for only 4 stars, was that the reader wasn't the same as the first 2 books. Not that he was bad at all. In fact he was quite good, but I was so used to the other guy's voice that it took some getting used to. Otherwise it was a great book.

    "A Grim and Depressing Tale"

    This story has so many disasters befall the main character that I couldn't even finish it. After believable fantasy, the hero takes a journey that turns wildly fantastic and terrible. It never gets better. Too depressing for me.
