Publisher's Summary

Sir Alanbart avoids action, recoils from romance, and shuns self-sacrifice; yet when he finds himself drawn into a harebrained attempt to rescue King Arthur, he becomes a victim of all three, and then poor Alanbart must fight hard to stay true to his cowardly and indolent nature. 

Three Days and Two Knights is a genre crossover that blends fantasy adventure, comedy, and romance in a historical literary setting. 

"Few tales tell of heroes and dragons, knights and giants, magic, miracles, love, a banshee and the undead...." So begins Aelfric the Entertainer, this tale's invasive, witty and often philosophical narrator. Set on the moors of Scotland in the waning months of Arthur's rule, Three Days and Two Knights tells how Sir Alanbart, an impoverished and spineless knight; Heather, an indomitable and irresistible serving maid; Scot, a pagan swordsman of questionable intelligence and sexuality, and Sir Gawain, the legendary romantic hero, form an unlikely alliance to free King Arthur from prison. The catch? They have just three days before the blue moon rises, at which time the red wizard Rabordath will use Arthur's blood to conjure a dragon that will end a kingdom and set all of Britain aflame. 

Three Days and Two Knights features characters, settings, artifacts and events drawn from medieval myth and history, and will appeal to anyone who loves the middle ages, knights, monsters, magic, or King Arthur, especially those who grew up with The Hobbit, Percy Jackson, and Cressida Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon series.

Goblins, Knights, and Dragons, Oh My!

This was the most amazing book. I think anyone would like it. Even if you think the Arthurian works aren’t for you, it is more than that. It is so funny. I found myself rolling, especially when the author would throw in footnote and all kinds of puns to go along with the story. It would take a serious situation and throw in some humor to lighten the mood. It puts me in mind of some great stories I read back in college in all my literature classes, especially Don Quixote. I loved all the characters. I think children would love it. It does get pretty bloody and gorey. But that’s to be expected with a story set back in the days of knights and dragons. Battles were fought with swords and arrows. There wasn’t modern medicine or analgesics like today.

I recommend the audiobook if you like listening to stories. The narrator really brought it to life. I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job than him. I especially liked the crazy Druid, Cathbad (hope that correct spelling), voice. I could picture the whole story as a movie. Cathbad reminds me of Gargamel on the Smurfs for some reason. I would love to see this made into a movie. This author is so amazing! He should go down in history like all the other famous writers of literature, who knows, maybe he already has. I’m so glad I found him.

Despite a slow start laying down background

this turned out to be a wonderful and nail-biting adventure. The author weaves quite a tale to a story we only thought we knew. Makes me wonder what and where his story will go from here? The narration is spot on great. Definitely worth listening to.
