Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell
Death of Kings

Keith Campbell, January 30, 2013

Another incredible addition to this series by Bernard Cornwell. This is such a quick read series because it's quite difficult to pull yourself away from the story. Uhtred, once again finds himself in so many dilemmas and decisions, that you find yourself offering resolves, just to see him hurry up and get back to his homeland to rule. Cornwell is the master of pulling you in with incredible characters, unpredictable plots and landscape images that send you across the ocean only to land in the midst of an onslaught of battle and bloodlust. A definite must read!!

Another incredible write from Edward Rutherford, who weaves his magic through characters of sequential generations into a magnificent history of Ireland. Incredible researcher of history, Rutherford draws his readers into each generation, probing into key clans and tribes, while richly expressing the beauty of Ireland and it's wonderful past.

Excalibur: A Novel of Arthur by Bernard Cornwell
Excalibur: A Novel of Arthur

Keith Campbell, March 14, 2011

An incredible ending to the Arthur series! Hated to see it end, but couldn't have asked for a better finale. Cornwell, from the very first book of the series, captivated his audience, not only in how Arthur's Britain would eventually fall to the Saxons, but even in how Derfel would consequently fall into the hands of the Mouse Lord Sansum. Another superbly written series by Bernard Cornwell.

The Winter King: A Novel of Arthur by Bernard Cornwell
The Winter King: A Novel of Arthur

Keith Campbell, February 2, 2011

Another incredible write by Bernard Cornwell. If you've ever been intrigued by the historical/mythical adventures of Arthur, then there is no greater place to be enveloped than in Cornwell's trilogy. Where most classics of Arthur focus solely on the great King, Cornwell brings to life so many of those that could have stood side-by-side or stolidly against the Saviour of Britain. An exquisitely written tale!
