A wonderful beginning to what will hopefully prove an epic and incredibly sexy series. Lancelot is the first-person narrator of this very grown-up spin on the Camelot saga. Lance is torn between his love of a mysterious new hanger-on named Else and his long-denied passion for his King. In the novel, Lance has passionate encounters with both men and women and Luddington writes love scenes with great skill. The characters fit beautifully into the Arthurian world and her take on Lancelot and Arthur have the reader very invested in the characters and their relationship. The narration by Joel Leslie is excellent - brooding, sexy and with great character range. Not strictly m/m erotica - but a complex and exciting fantasy that delivers.

A surprising delight. Sarah Luddington has taken all the latent sexy qualities of the Camelot legend and bumped them up with amazing results. The story is told from Lancelot's point of view, which I loved. The character is dark, dangerous and very, very sexy. The character relationships are complex and lay the foundation work for what could be a very exciting epic saga. Lance has amorous adventures with women while trying to escape a life-long forbidden obsession with Arthur. The writing is sensual, exciting and while there are great steamy moments - the storytelling and character development is what leaves the reader hungry for more. If you're turned off by m/m romance then this isn't the Camelot for you - but for readers like me, it's got Merlin's magic touch. The narration is excellent - he provides clear, strong characterizations with humor and right touch of wry wit.
