“Arthur calls Camelot his ‘curse’. He might be right, but I have to believe it is worth fighting for, or what is the point of my existence?”

Lancelot and Arthur return home to find Guinevere shattered and a Camelot they barely recognise. A traitor’s challenge for the throne forces Arthur back on t

3.5 Stars.

I am totally addicted to this series, just as I've been addicted to L.A. Wilson's The Silurian series. Both are independent authors who could easily give established authors a run for their money.

I love gritty retellings of legends and this one is fantastic. If you're looking for a chivalrous, poetry-spouting, hearts and flowers Lancelot du Lac, forget it. This Lancelot is raw, earthy, angry, passionate, tortured and very human. He loves deeply, if not always wisely or well.

He's still

So, the first book had me hooked and rooting for Arthur and Lancelot, and hating Guinevere. This book has changed things drastically.

We open with Arthur, Lancelot, and Merlin returning to Camelot to find Guinevere broken and victimized and the kingdom in shambles. The three quickly work to get the kingdom back in shape and we are introduced to a new character, Tancred, who becomes Lancelot's steward. But, if we thought the Fey were done after book one, we're wrong. Now a new threat has risen wit

A bit like the Southern Vampire Mysteries, these books are becoming something of a guilty pleasure. They're just awful, horrible, terrible, anachronistic, melodramatic and ultimately nonsense...but I like them. *cringe*

Lancelot rather reminds me of Fleming's Bond, a trained, ruthless killer who's slowly falling apart as he struggles to reconcile who he is with what he does. I kinda wish he didn't have to "love" every single person he has any kind of romantic involvement with - however fleeting
What the heck. This is breaking my heart over and over again. It‘s so melodramatic, it should be funny, but it isn‘t. It totally isn‘t. Like, why can‘t they just be happy? Because Lancelot doesn‘t get his shit together. To be real, I think his character is very irritating. There is just so much I don‘t like about his personality, that I have to question myself why I even bother to continue with the books (mostly because of the other characters – I just care too much about them). They are always ...more

I enjoy reading this book in the series. It was eventful and exciting. I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens next.

Let me start by saying two things:
1) I am not any sort of Arthur/Camelot purist and 2) I can over look the occasional editing error if I'm enjoying the story.

I love.... LOVE.... Lancelot. Yes, he is all over the place with his feelings of love, desire, and loyalty. But he is a warrior with a heart of gold. He fights and loves with 150% of his passion. It's also explained that his Fey heritage influences his emotions and makes him feel everything more strongly. He's desperate to find his missing

If you saw my review for the first book in this series, I need not explain my excitement any further. Continuing the drama between Sir Lancelot and King Arthur and their struggle for the kingdom of England, here is another tale of excitement and action. The magical connections step it up a notch, the bloodshed is more ferocious and violent, and I was so drawn in with Lancelot as he told his tale that I feel he is right beside me as I read. I like the fact that this isn’t simply a story of a warr ...more
