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.

Synopsis: From the author of ENEMY OF GOD and WINTER KING, a fantasy novel which charts the exploits of King Arthur: the warlord, the soldier and his twelve battles, the politician at the end of Roman influence, the lover betrayed by Guinevere, and the Christian opposing Merlin and the old religions.
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
