Publisher's Summary

With Excalibur, Bernard Cornwell draws his Arthurian trilogy to an exciting close that will have listeners gripping their headphones.
If Arthur existed (and I am quite certain he did), then he was probably the great British war leader who won the battle of Mount Badon. No one knows where it was fought, or how it was fought, but we do know that the battle took place and it was the one great defeat inflicted on the English invaders of Britain. In Excalibur, we follow Arthur and Derfel to that enormous struggle and incredible victory. It not only throws the Saxons back, but reunites Arthur and Guinevere. He might hope now to be left alone, to have a time of peace after gaining a great victory, but new enemies arise to destroy all he has achieved. First is Mordred himself, the crippled king who owes everything to Arthur and now tries to kill his benefactor. Mordred's ally is Nimue who has come to hate her mentor, Merlin. And so the story ends as it has always ended, at Camlann... "and so my lord was gone. And no one has seen him since."

An Original Story from a legend?

Bernard Cornwell has taken what has to be one of the best known, most loved legends of Britain and rewritten it from beginning to end. All of our best loved characters are there. The great love stories and great betrayals are all here but none of them as we have heard them before. Each character within the bounds of our expectations but never in exactly the way the songs have been sung. There is nothing that disappoints. The legend takes on flesh and shines with new threads. Even the end, while some might claim leaves the story unresolved, is completely satisfying. Cornwell is amazing, in this series more than any other, he truly earns the highest title as author, historian, and writer of our legends. Is there a Talisan award? Has he been knighted? This has to be the crowning glory of his career and life!

A literal masterpiece

I’ve been listening to audiobooks daily for over a decade, and none have moved me anywhere near as this. Simply incredible. Mr. Keeble’s narration is second to none. Bravo.
