Publisher's Summary

At the end of The Winter King, Arthur fought the battle that forces unity on the warring British kingdoms and now he sets out to face the real enemy - the English (it is one of the great ironies of the Arthur stories that he should have become an English hero when, if he existed at all, he was a great war-leader who opposed the invading Sais). First, though, Merlin leads a perilous expedition into the mysterious west to retrieve a cauldron, one of the treasures of Britain - this cauldron story is almost certainly the root of the holy grail strand in the Arthur tales. The treasures of Britain, Merlin believes, will bring the old Gods onto the side of the British in their struggle against the Saxons (and the Christians, whom Merlin hates). But the treasures will also set Briton against Briton - especially as Guinevere, now Arthur's wife, wants to make a magic of her own. "Chaos was now thick across Britain, for someone had spilt the Cauldron's power and its horror threatened to engulf us all."

©1998 Bernard Cornwell (P)2014 HarperCollins Publishers

Great take on Arthur legend

Cornwell does a great job with the characters and the story. The narrator is excellent. Period warfare and period lifestyles are described with detail that makes them believable

A darker Camelot

This series is unique among Cornwell's historical works in having no actual history underlying it.

Nevertheless it is a wonderful alternate portrayal of the Matter of Britain.

Narrator is amazing!

Book is very well written and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The narration is amazing, I could listen to Jonathan Keeble read a recipe book and still enjoy it. While this book may not be 100% historically accurate, it is plausible and a great read for any Athur fan.

Few things are as good as the original...

This is true of Enemy of God, it's not quite the story that The Winter King was, but it is awfully close. I could not stop listening! Excited to hear the next in the series.

If you like Bernard Cromwell books well this is a Bernard Cromwell book. Similar to the second series but generally very enjoyable.

Excellent story! Plausible History, and fresh!

The author creates a new view of the Arthurian story. I thought it was going to be another rehash, but I couldn't have been more wrong. the characters for fresh both with their motivations and their flaws.
