Definitely a different take on Arthur than ones I have read previously. This version stresses Arthur's Christianity and depicts Merlin much less a Druid than many other tellings of the legend. I probably would have enjoyed the book more had I read it in series order, but it was a reading group selection and I did not have the time to read "Taliesin" and "Merlin" first.

I'll definitely re-read at some point, but in series order.

After I enjoyed *Taliesin* and *Merlin* quite a bit, this one has been a disappointment--too much account of battle narrated by minor characters.
