Traitor Now is your death time upon you You may think you know all about King Arthur, the young boy who plucked the sword from the stone You ve probably heard stories about Merlin s magic powers and the Knights of the round table these are the stories we learn at schoolBut they are just the beginning Here are tales of human sacrifice, dragons, sword fights to the death, noble quests, tragedy and great courage this the real world of King ArthurAre you brave enough to enter Includes exclusive material In the Backstory you can test your knowledge of the legends and find out which Knight of the Round Table you most resemble Vintage Children s Classics is a twenty first century classics list aimed at year olds and the adults in their lives Discover timeless favourites from The Jungle Book and Alice s Adventures in Wonderland to modern classics such as The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time Bought as gift for my nephew as I loved her books as a child, he seemed happy This book exceeded my expectations I bought it for my grandson, started to read it and couldn t put it down I was immersed in the legend and the lives of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table.Theres no one quite like Rosemary Sutcliff who can weave a spell and take the reader into the books she writes Her prose is exemplary, her descriptive narrative just beautiful.Now I will have to buy another copy for my grandson I m keeping mine Unlike many of Rosemary Sutcliff s other excellent historical stories, this book is written in a very matter of fact style, reminiscent of a history text, rather than as a novel It is still a worthwhile read if you just want to brush up on your Arthurian knowledge, but there is little empathy with any of the characters. Great fun present My son is loving this book I thought I d read it first but no such luck It s on the Kindle and he keeps asking to borrow it so he can read some. Adventure, history, myth, legend excellent charactre portraits I have loved her work for years and am pleased that i still do Rosemary Sutcliff s books are awesome I read The Light Beyond the Forest when it first came out and could not put it down The complete trilogy is no different Another on my list to read is The Eagle of the Ninth series Enjoy. Disappointing I love Rosemary Suttcliff but found this stilted Her other books are much better. Sutcliff always excellent.
