Fiction • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 1995

Cornwell's experience as a historical novelist (Sharpe Chronicles, etc.) is evident in this, the first in an Arthurian trilogy. Told by Derferl Cardan, rescued as a child by Merlin and then a warrior for Arthur, the story has battles aplenty but also insight into the actions of Arthur et al. A rich, expressive narration by Tim Pigott-Smith renders the language and dialects musical, creating a period atmosphere and sense of place for the listener. This is a most enjoyable incarnation of timeless characters. M.A.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
