I have had a fascination with the King Arthur legend ever since high school when I wrote my senior paper on it One reviewer complained that this story has been told a million times why would we read yet another version I would argue that the the reason this story has been told over and over again is that we love the whole idea that for one bright shining moment there was a real prince and princess who defeated the Saxon horde and granted peace and prosperity to their kingdom The reason that this story can be told in so many ways is that the bare bones of the legend comes from Thomas Malory s Le Morte d Arthur and it leaved much to be explained Who was Merlin An actual wizard or sorcerer etc etc This series addresses the whole thing from the time the Romans began to leave Britain I love how well written this book is Whyte s use of the English language is masterful The writing is so clear and intere
