I bought this book because it was on sale and my son is kind of a Fan of Arthurian stories, I didnt really expect much, I have never been interested. To my surprise I liked the story it was entertaining, I found that I enjoyed the characters, that they were more complex than I expected. The story moved along smartly and didnt lull the way some fantasy can. When I began the book I thought the narrator sounded a little old for the part she read, but I think she grew on me and whithin an hour enjoyed the narration. But I read theis at work and it kept my attention and was quite entertaining.

I have read several books in the Bradley/Paxson "Avalon" series I have found them a fast read only about 400 pages. The book describes in detail how Excalibur, the Sword of Avalon, was crafted -- one of the first swords to be crafted in bronze rather than steel. It opens with the The book is the classic tale of a boy raised in excile comes back as the king of kings and leads his people to victory. The book contains two romances the boy and a priestess he was raised with at Avalon and the blacksmith who adopted the boy and the old Pristess of Avalon. It was quite a good book but it lacked Marion Zimmer Bradly's touch of magic and genius in writing.

A wonderful story set a long time before King Arthur. The goddess of Avalon sets in motion the path of discovery to accomplish the making of Excalliber.
