Bernard Cornwell is the king of historical fiction That’s not my opinion it’s an actual fact His Arthur trilogy The Warlord Chronicles is a great piece of writing; yet for all that I much prefer Lancelot There’s just something captivating about the way Giles Kristian has told this story For a start the Arthurian myth is something that has been adapted many times into fiction movies and television shows So what’s new about this version Well it’s told solely from the perspective of Lancelot from beginning to end and it is driven by his experience of the events We see his side of the story We see how he fell in love with Guinevere when he was very young and we see how he was forced into an impossible love triangle that threatened everything he had become He didn't want this it just happened You see Lancelot had been training his entire life to become a warrior After his entire family was betrayed he has been under the tutelage of Lady Nimue and her personal warrior guard He has become a skilled fighter and an honourable man He saves Arthur’s life and pledges him his service He becomes the best of his men This version of Lancelot is not a conniving wife stealing snake as I’ve seen before but a man caught between the two people he loves most in the world; thus the novel becomes a compelling character study And it was fantastic One of the greatest difficulties in writing historical fiction is balance Some authors stretch their stories out too far even after the plot has dried up Others do not give their characters enough substance and prioritise contextual details and timelines Giles Kristian gets it just right This is a big book with a huge story though it keeps moving forward and does not get stuck in the mud Even though the events are dramatic and swift I feel like the characters are depicted perfectly Arthur reminded me very much of Cornwell’s version However this is Lancelot’s novel and seeing him as a child added so much depth to his character And it also made it very easy to sympathise with him Although his love for Guinevere arguably was the downfall of Arthur’s dream of Britain I can’t blame Lancelot I can only understand him and feel for him Lancelot never stops growing until the end He learns about himself and how far he is willing to go for who he loves His was an impossible situation I also like the sense of realism that ran through the story; it showed how historical details or events can easily become exaggerated and turned into myth Merlin’s antics for example and the finding of Excalibur are both very ordinary things but infused with just enough mystery to make the very real seem magic It's all very well done and the last scene must have been terribly hard to write and I must say it’s easily one of the best closers I’ve ever read This is an explosive book the pinnacle of the genre Go read it You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree

With just a hunting bird and dreams of revenge is now a lord of war He is a man loved and hated admired and feared A man forsaken but not forgotten He is LancelotSet in a th century Britain besieged by invading bands of Saxons and Franks Irish and Picts Giles Kristian's epic new novel tells through the warrior's own words the story of Lancelot that most celebrated of all King Arthur's knights It is a story ready to be re imagined for our time. Lancelot an epic that traverses Arthurian Britain an epic that is as captivating as it is breathtaking Prepare for heart wrenching destruction and a whole new portrayal of the legend of Arthur Thank you to my brother Will and some of my favourite bloggers for recommending it “What is the worst they can do to us Perhaps I was a fool but I felt neither fear nor regret And as for Guinevere I loved her and she loved me; I believed that was enough”Giles Kristian is a renowned historical fiction writer writing fantastic viking age novels Lancelot is very different to his pervious books 672 pages focusing on character development rather than the break neck pacing and action of the Raven Saga and Sigurd’s Saga I loved itI know that whenever anyone mentions Arthur I immediately think of Bernard Cornwell and his fantastic Warlord Chronicles It is so iconic and brilliantly told it is difficult to not think of it Lancelot is an entirely different beast and one that Giles Kristian acknowledges to be inspired by Cornwell’s telling There are not many novelisations that explore who Lancelot really is not many that stray away from Lancelot just being some terribly disloyal man However this Lancelot really showed how a book can go completely against the grain and be utterly brilliant“No glory now Just two men hacking at each other with sharp steel Each craving the other's death Both desperate to live”Kristian’s Lancelot comes to life slowly gradually rising from the embers and ashes beautifully crafted and emotionally driven from the early chapters This book begins with a young Lancelot and follows his life in the dark world of the 5th Century Britain is full of suabbling kingdoms truly the dark ages after the Roman’s have left Britain to the formidable Saxons There is little hope for the Briton’sThis re telling includes many well known characters for those who have read some Arthurian fantasy I really enjoyed these characters who I have read about previously as they were brought to life in different ways than I predicted Some had their staple personalities Merlin is witty and Bors is stoic and of course our main character is completely likeable and loveable Compared to Cornwell’s trilogy it wad refreshing to see the story from Lancelot’s perspective and he is a fantastic main character kind hearted loyal a fighter and someone who felt all too real which really enhanced every emotional scene there are many“And yet Arthur had Merlin And Merlin had an idea And so Arthur listened”It is a slow build up and I felt myself longing for some uick progression of Lancelot’s early years however I found the I read the I had appreciated the beginning and the gradual build up as it really is a character driven book and it meant I was already completely invested by the time scenes packed a punch The final third was brutal and emotional and I felt every high and low Lancelot felt Hats off the Giles“The beacon flames leapt high into the night sky the crack and pop of the fire ravaged wood carrying across the water which was dark but for the copper gloss which those flames cast a spear throw distance out into the bay And beside that ember spewing fire illuminated so that their spear blades and helmets and shield bosses glinted stood a line of warriors”55 This is a fantastic book a wonderful re telling of the Arthurian Knight Lancelot It is refreshing and so enjoyable with Kristian’s staple intense shield walls but with added character depth that I did not see coming and scenes that will bring tears to your eyes I loved it and I cannot wait for the seuel Camelot to be in clutches
