(Original review:

Story: Good
Characters: Fair
Re-Readability: Good
Overall: Good

Story: This is the third volume of Peter David’s return of Arthur trilogy. "Knight Life" (one of David’s first published works) told of Arthur’s reappearance and his election to mayor of New York. "One Knight Only" had him voted President of the United States. This book takes place after that administration, as Arthur and Gwen bum about at loose ends. But what happens when the h
After being so disappointed in the second book of the series I was really happy to see the third book improve again. After saving Gwen from certain death at the end of the previous book, Arthur & Gwen are sailing in isolation so as to avoid the attention that the miraculous cure would cause and to avoid answering the difficult questions. Being the modern age though and the intrusive media, they are soon discovered and have to go back and, in his infinite wisdom, Arthur decides to be honest a ...more

"I don't see how Gwen and I can, in good conscience, spend the rest of our lives carefree if it means that Ron's buttocks will become transformed into a lawn."

I think, when dealing with this sort of mythical character in a modern age, there's always the question of what to do with your mythological beings when your story is told. In this case, I liked the ending, and think this is as neat a tie-up to a light series of this sort as you could ask for. The humour is still there though not as sharp

last of the book series, it seems pretty good so far. I just love the first one, but they seem to kind of go off the funny and unexpected like the first one was. still has its charm, but I'm not a huge fan of the politics the characters have to deal with. want more adventure
not as great as the first, sad to say. but pretty good, fast read.

Peter David's writing returned from comic book land (where the second book of the series was set) and this is a hilarious, fun, fitting end to the trilogy. Worth some time, maybe at the beach.

Thoughtfully blasphemous but generally dull. Disturbing over-use of the word 'miraculous'. Best epilogue ever.
Paxton Holley
Fitting end to the series. Not high literature but definitely fun and entertaining.
