Ah, the promised Saxons yet I wasn't satisfied. I didn't feel anything for the characters, not even Artor (Arthur). It wasn't a bad book, but it could have been better. It gets 3 stars for uniqueness.

I enjoyed this first book in the series by Diana Paxson. I love when authors take a new perspective on a widely known tale and delve into the different aspects of character, blended with history, and enhance the story as she has done with this book. A very good read--and since I am nearly done with the 4th and final book of the series, I can say same for all--very good read and very enjoyable!
