Summary:

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.

    With Bernard Cornwall, if you like historical fiction, you are always in for a treat. Besides the books themselves, I also enjoy the narrations, especially the ones who use different voices for different characters. I guess my favorite is Frederick Davidson. But as for the books, probably my favorites are the Richard Sharpe series, of which I have read/listened to most if not all. I have Sharpe's Eagles copied into my ITunes and listen to that when the Internet is down or there's some other problem. Somehow I don't get tired of it. Highly recommended!
