    Book details


Jack Whyte's richly praised Camulod Chronicles, an authentic retelling of Arthurian legend as it really might have happened, has drawn raves from readers and critics alike. Throughout the series, Merlyn Britannicus has been driven by one sacred dream: to see Britain united under one just, powerful king. In Metamorphosis, it is time for the Sorcerer to fulfill his promise -- to present the battle-proven Arthur as the Riothamus, the High King of Britain. When Arthur miraculously withdraws the Sword of Kingship from the stone in which it is set, he proves himself the true and deserving King -- sworn to defend the Christian faith against invaders, and destined to change the face of history and legend forever.

    Due to an attempt on the young Arthur's life in Camulod Merlin flees with his charge to Cumbria in what is now northeastern EnglandArthur is here shown to be a child prodigy as well as physically valiant-the combination of genius and physical prowess making for a perfect leader.He is loyal to his friends and has both an analytic and imaginative mind.Merlyn and friend later build a fort at MediobogdumNo magic as in sorcery but lots of prophetic dreams and premonitionsAlso there is a battle against Eirish maraudersMerlin renounces his vow of celibacy to take as a mistress the beautiful young Tressa Rich description of the of the compound at Ravenglass and beautifully erotic imagery of Merlin's admiration for Sheilagh and relations with Tressa.

    As a school-boy I was introduced to the Arthurian legends by the Thomas Mallory version, all knights in shining armour and quests. Jack Whyte has joined a very select group of authors, such as Stephen Lawhead, Rosmary Sutcliff and Bernard Cornwall. to name just a few, these brilliant writers have brought alive an era of which we knew very little. I, after having read these versions have a deeper insight into this period of English history. These authors have worked extremely hard with their research and have woven wonderful stories,that to my mind gives us an insight into life at that time.Historians have not proven otherwise.So I think the readers of these works should give a vote of thanks for the imaginative and fertile minds of these superb writers. I think Jack Whyte has written by far the most believable version of the Arthurian legend. His time frame is to my mind brilliantly conceived logic tells me this is when it must have been.As a reader I am well aware that the writer must take poetic licence after all primarily it is a Novel and not an historical record.I read a previous reveiw on this book and the reveiwer believed it was a waste of 400-odd pages, not so, for the Author has given us continuity and further insight into his characters.May I give my warmest thanks to Mr Whyte for the many hours of pleasure he has afforded me and I wait with anticipation for his next novel.
