THE BRIGHT SWORD A Novel of King Arthur

by | Read by Nicholas Guy Smith, Lev Grossman [Note]

Fantasy • 23.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Nicholas Guy Smith evokes the Arthurian legends of old in this tongue-in-cheek Knights of the Round Table-inspired novel. A young man named Collum dreams of joining King Arthur's Round Table, but by the time he arrives in Camelot, King Arthur is dead. Smith's narration captures the epic qualities of the story as Collum and the knights try to keep the kingdom united after the unimaginable loss. Smith shines in this grand, ambitious novel, especially as he performs the dialogue of the various knights, each of whom has his own accent and cadence. Full of humor, magic, and endless quests, this story is perfect for any lover of King Arthur tales. K.D.W. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2024]
