In The Winter King and Enemy of God Bernard Cornwell demonstrated his astonishing ability to make the oft-told legend of King Arthur fresh and new for our time. Now, in this riveting final volume of the Warlord Chronicles, Cornwell tells the unforgettable tale of Arthur’s final struggles against the Saxons and his last attempts to triumph over a ruined marriage and ravaged dreams.

This is the tale not only of a broken love remade but also of forces both earthly and unearthly that threaten everything Arthur stands for. Peopled by princesses and bards, by warriors and magicians, Excalibur is the story of love, war, loyalty, and betrayal—the work of a magnificent storyteller at the height of his powers.

    " This was a good ending to a good tale. It nicely finishes the story of all the characters and it provides an ending that makes it possible that Arthur is still alive somewhere outside of Britain :). Bernard Cornwell is really good at creating characters that you really like. And so I miss Arthur too and would love to hear the very last of Derfel's story. What happened to him and Ceinwyn after Arthur's departure? "

    " For the moment, in Portuguese...if I like them (almost pretty sure I will...) I'll get them in English. "

    " Cornwell's Sharp Series is in my mind the greatest series ever written, but the King Author Trilogy is right up there. I simply loved all three books, unbelievable. It makes you really believe that Author might have lived after all. A must read! "
