    ePUB Firelord Kindle ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ firelord ebok, Firelord PDFThis is probably the most definitive version of the legend of King Arthur in the last thirty years in my opinion Godwin has done his research and traces Arthur's origins from a high born Romanized Briton in the twilight years of Rome's presence through his rise to power and the creation of a well organized effective kingdom that is capable at least for a while of holding back the encroachment of the Jutes Saxons Angles and other mainland tribes If Arthur actually existed well it could have been like thisGood as his research is that's not what makes this book so worth reading Godwin has the natural ability to bring his characters to life in a way that few other writers can match There are no minor characters

    ePUB Firelord Kindle ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ firelord ebok, Firelord PDFA retelling of the Arthurian legend reminded me of Bernard Cornwell's The Winter King in that this is a very gritty militaristic view of Arthur's story without any mystical or supernatural elements Perhaps Winter King was even gritty and unromantic but Firelord is also set in a potentially believable 6th century ? Britain Arthur is an ambitious man Merlin is his 'inner voice' not an advisor or wizard with aims on kingship and unification of the tribes of Britain However he is torn between his Roman upbringing and his not fully explained and init

    ePUB Firelord Kindle ½ ¹ alternate universe.co ¹ firelord ebok, Firelord PDFParke Godwin's specialty is the retelling of the classic legends In Firelord he takes the legend of King Arthur and rewrites it in a way that fits the likely historical era in which the real man who was probably the basis of the legend lived It's not a history text but entirely a fictional novel but the book brings a historical realism to the story that really resonated with me Beloved Exile follows Guinevere after Arthur's death and is set in the period that the Germanic tribes are slowly taking over from the Romanized Celts The Tower of Beowulf is the same sort of retelling of the old Germanic saga
