First Edition ; First Printing indicated. Near Fine in Near Fine DJ: Both book and DJ show only minute indications of use. The Book shows some shelving wear along the bottom edge of the boards and crimping to the heel of the backstrip; two pages have been mildly bumped at the lower fore-edge, causing a small, faint crease; a tiny soil spot at the top edge, most likely a spider dropping; thebinding square and secure; the text is clean. The DJ shows only the mildest rubbing; else flawless; the price is unclipped; mylar-protected. Overall, while not quite perfect, remains very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. xii, 436 pages. Endpaper maps. Hardback with DJ. First Edition ; First Printing indicated. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: 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 third novel in the Warlords Chronicle, Excalibur: A Novel of Arthur immerses the reader in the Britain of the Dark Ages. Merlin, the greatest of the Druids, believes that the ancient gods are deserting Britain, and that the invading Saxons can't be defeated without the gods' help. Mordred reigns with a brutal hand, and Arthur sees his dreams of peace evaporate. The author provides exciting descriptions of swordplay and battles, interspersed with somewhat gruesome depictions of ordinary life in those days--greasy, waist-length beards serving as napkins, lambs bloodily sacrificed before festivals, and rampant lice.
But at the heart of Excalibur--what makes the Arthurian legends eternally fascinating--is the larger-than-life company of heroes, from Sagramor the warrior to Taliesin the bard, Guinevere, Lancelot, and Arturus Rex himself. Cornwell treats them all with warmth and dignity, revealing their human qualities without unnecessarily reinventing them. This three-part saga of magic and bloodshed will grip readers from the first page of The Winter King, through Enemy of God, to the last page of Excalibur. --Blaise Selby
