Review: Shadow Of The King by Helen Hollick

Peace has fallen over King Arthur and his men. King Arthur, in his restlessness, hopes for another battle. He gets his wish when he heads to Gaul but he soon realizes that he was drawn in by false pretenses. King Arthur will finally have the chance to achieve the goal that life has set for him. Will he win or will the battles of the past prove fruitless?

I have always loved stories about King Arthur. I was really impressed with Helen's descriptions and plot twists. I must admit that is one of my favorite trilogies. I felt like I was right there swinging a sword and fighting for honor.

  1. This doesn't sound too bad. I like historical novels

  2. thank you for a wonderful review and such kind comments - I will always have a soft spot for "my" Arthur and it is nice to know that others so enjoy the Trilogy.
