This book actually never came out as the publisher, Ragnarok, folded. It'll be out December 26th, and cheaper. Hope you give it a try.

I am a huge fan of Mary Stewart's Merlin trilogy (and The Wicked Day), and acknowledge it in the beginning of this book actually.

Thanks,
Ed (Who's Steve?) (less)

I am a fan of Edward M. Erdelac, and yes, this is well written, but I just can't get into it (or anything right now to be honest). Maybe I will finish the 2nd half once I feel the urge to step back into a Knights of the Round Table tale.

Ever since reading Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur, I was instantly mesmerised by the tales of King Arthur, his legendary knights of the round table, and the wisdom of Merlin and Avalon. There is a magic in the legends, a magic that flows from the antiquated script into the hearts and souls of the many thousands of readers and viewers of such texts. Though ancient, the legend of King Arthur endures, and Edward M. Erdelac’s novel, The Knight

The first Arthurian-themed story I had read in decades was an absolute delight! Really, it transported me to my childhood when I read all within my grasp about Arthur, Robin Hood and all those legends.

Weaving strands from across all interpretations of British folklore and legend, Ed Erdelac immerses us in a fun and fantastic retelling of all the saga told by the point of view of Balin, a knight caught between the conflict of Christendom vs Paganism. A completely fantastical tale that brings us

Action packed and fast paced, The Knight With Two Swords does a remarkable job of capturing the insane feel of Arthurian legend, putting the reader in the knight's perspective, and also the geography when the British isle felt like world (or a significant part of it).

Sometimes it seems like we've heard a story so many times that we can recount it by heart. Sometimes we can become bored with a book before we even start reading it because it is so familiar. Some authors try to turn legends on their heads or try to give it an extra dimension. The Knight With Two Swords attempts this.
The Arthurian legends are one that is so very indelibly tied to the Anglo-Saxon culture. We have seen it told in various ways and through various eyes like Excalibur, First Knight,

You've probably encountered this author's tales set in the Old West. If so, you know that he transports you to the place and time, usually depositing you down in the mud to sweat and bleed with his characters. This epic fantasy is no different - the conditions are often grimy, the circumstances desperate, all serving to root the magic and Arthurian lore to fully fleshed out characters.

Highly recommended!
