Bernard Cornwell: Excalibur



T flavor to it I suspect that Cornwell planned to use Uhtred in a role similar to Derfel that of the observer and limited participant with the main character of the story being a person that this character hangs out with and observes However Uhtred is ust so arrogant and likable that for me he kind of broke free of Alfred s shadow and Out of the Shadows just fucking ran off with the story I mean view spoilerAlfred died in the last book and the series is still going hide spoiler Number 3 and the last of the Arthur SagasBernard Cornwell kept the bests for last This book oozes with heroes undying love and magic most foulThis is Britain in the late 5th and the early 6th The Warlord Chronicles trilogy is hands down the best Arthurian saga I ve ever had the chance to experience out of all medium I have to confess that of all the books I have written these three are my favourites Bernard Cornwell2 months and 20 books after my last 55 stars without rounding up read the end to that slump is finally here for I have found a new addition to my favorite shelves in a genre I rarely ventured Cornwell has a new fan and this might be a sign for me to dive into Historical Fiction in the futureExcalibur the third and last book in the Warlord Chronicles trilogy is definitely the best entry out of the trilogy I ll try to keep this review as brief possible to avoid any kind of spoiler I ve talked about what made the trilogy great in my previous reviews the only thing missing was the battle and war scenes I ve come to expect from the genre and.

He pulls out a huge arsenal of them and many of them impressed me with their sheer gross paganiness One bizarre thing that always stuck out with me was the druids insisting on shaping their hair into spikes with dung I m not sure if Cornwell ever mentioned a particular reason for that or if it was Im Not Millie! just a cosmetic thing popular among fifth and sixth century druids Either way it s stuff like this that really brings the uniue and enthralling Britain of these books to life A fun thing is that Cornwell really leaves it kind of ambiguous as to how much of the magic is real A cynic like myself will probably leave with the idea that everything that transpired in this book could well have happened but others may not be so convinced Most of the characters in the book whether they d like to admit it or not believe in it and that s enough for it to take on a reality of its own regardless of what the reader might personally believe This kind of thing will be utterly familiar to people that have read the Saxon Tales but in this one it was a lot harder for me toust dismiss the pagan magic as interesting superstition I m not sure why I ust harped on the magic thing for so longAnd the characters Man it s really hard for me to really dig the guts out of why I found them so engaging We certainly don t get into their heads and souls like we might with other characters in other books but the way we see them was kind of novel for me Although I was familiar with the perspective from the Saxon Tales it certainly had a differen.

Another great book by Bernard Cornwell I have to admit that this novel was another pleasant surprise from Cornwell for me While I m always entertained and informed by his books they very rarely actually move me in a sentimental way given that they re not really sentimental books However this novel was really touching Potent episodes of broken and then redeemed love undying loyalty and sticking to ones principles even when you have nothing to gain and everything to lose spring up everywhere during this book It s really nice and so bittersweetThat s not to say it s like a novel length Hallmark card however This is probably the most violent and bleak Arthur book All of the wounds and rivalries and in fighting boil of the past books boil to the surface and the pages fly by in this kind of blur of utter turmoil and strife I don t think it s a spoiler that Arthur has to confront the Saxons and deal with their shit for good in this novel and boy does he ever The series of engagements that makes up the event we call Mount Badon is really given the full Cornwell treatment It s long gory exhausting tense and full of memorable scenes that run the gamut from terrifying to funny to heartwarmingAlso so much magic Whereas Enemy of God concerned a particular kind of intense and overzealous Christian fervor gripping the countryside in this book the pagans are even worse I m not really sure if Cornwell ust completely makes all these bizarre rituals and superstitions up or he consults some source or a mixture of both but.
