Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Winter King and Enemy of God Bernard Cornwell demonstrated his astonishing ability to make the oft-told legend of King Arthur fresh and new for our time. Now, in this riveting final volume of the Warlord Chronicles, Cornwell tells the unforgettable tale of Arthur's final struggles against the Saxons and his last attempts to triumph over a ruined marriage and ravaged dreams.

This is the tale not only of a broken love remade, but also of forces both earthly and unearthly that threaten everything Arthur stands for. Peopled by princesses and bards, by warriors and magicians, Excalibur is the story of love, war, loyalty, and betrayal — the work of a magnificent storyteller at the height of his powers.

Review:

"The action is gripping and skillfully paced, cadenced by passages in which the characters reveal themselves in conversation and thought, convincingly evoking the spirit of the time." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

Review:

"Splendid, white-hot storytelling." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A] compelling finale....Cornwell's attention to historical detail, his penchant for lively storytelling, and his vivid characters make this a good choice for all collections." Library Journal

Review:

"Medieval times burst to life in Cornwell's canny retelling of the King Arthur myth." People

Keith Campbell, March 14, 2011 (view all comments by Keith Campbell)
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.
