Publisher's Summary

Uther, the High King of Britain, has died, leaving the infant Mordred as his only heir. His uncle, the loyal and gifted warlord Arthur, now rules as caretaker for a country that has fallen into chaos - threats emerge from within the British kingdoms while vicious Saxon armies stand ready to invade.
As he struggles to unite Britain and hold back the Saxon enemy, Arthur is embroiled in a doomed romance with beautiful Guinevere.

A Brilliant Story

Any additional comments?

A wonderful story, wonderfully read by Tim Piggot-Smith, who brings a real depth of character to the different parts. The audio is also nice and clear. My one issue is that it is abridged; so much of the story is left out.

Brilliant book, superb performance

Bernard Cornwell has often said the Warlord Chronicles (of which this is the first part) is his favourite work and I agree (although the Saxon series runs it close).
This is an imagined past, but rooted in realism. A fantastic story told in the first person, this sets up the rest of the trilogy perfectly.
Tim Piggott-Smith performs the book superbly - he is a true master of his craft.
The only downside is that it's abridged - the full length book is better.

Not bad

Not his best works, I enjoyed earlier books more. The narration was also different from earlier works.
