☊ [PDF]- Read ✍ The Winter King: A Novel of Arthur (The Warlord Chronicles Book 1)  ☷ Kindle By Bernard Cornwell ♕ ☊ [PDF]- Read ✍ The Winter King: A Novel of Arthur (The Warlord Chronicles Book 1) ☷ Kindle By Bernard Cornwell ♕ Essentially this is a modern political thriller, told in flat American diction Narrated by Derfel, an ordinary, likable man who rises through the ranks to become Arthur s friend and advisor in peace and war, the story doesn t follow the traditional patterns Mordred is Uther s infant grandson, the legitimate king Arthur is one of Mordred s guardians, sworn to hold the kingdom against the Saxon warlords until Mordred comes of age Warfare is incessant Arthur s dream of peace and unity seems unattainable Derfel s own story his strange origin, his love for Nimue, his worries and his triumphs parallels Arthur s as he fights for and beside him Bernard Cornwell downplays the magic that enlivens the traditional stories, depicting it as a combination of superstition and shrewd wits I recommend this with reservations though it s absorbing to read, the emphasis on battles and politics means that this will greatly appeal to some fantasy readers, but disappoint others.Arthurian literature may be a worldwide cottage industry, but Cornwell, author of the Sharpe series of historical military adventures Sharpe s Battle, etc stands out from the crowd with this exemplary kickoff to a trilogy about the legendary warrior king Cornwell s Arthur is fierce, dedicated and complex, a man with many problems, most of his own making His impulsive decisions sometimes have tragic ramifications, as when he lustfully takes Guinevere instead of the intended Ceinwyn, alienating his friends and allies and inspiring a bloody battle The secondary characters are equally unexpected, and are ribboned with the magic and superstition of the times Merlin impresses as a remarkable personage, a crafty schemer fond of deceit and disguise Lancelot is portrayed as a warrior pretender, a dishonest charmer with dark plans of his own by contrast, Galahad seems the noble soldier of purpose and dedication Guinevere, meanwhile, no gentle creature waiting patiently in the moonlight, has designs and plots of her own The story of these characters and others is narrated forcefully and with dry wit by Derfel Cadarn, one of Arthur s warriors, who later becomes a monk Cornwell knows his history the battle scenes are particularly fine but not once does it get in the way of people of flesh and blood meeting on a darkened field of combat Author tour Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
