    PDF FREE [The Winter King] This is my favorite Cornwell series it's Cornwell's too for it covers my favorite historical era that mysterious gap in between the Roman departure and the Saxon Invasion This retelling of Arthur works so well because it's divorced from Mallory I love BC's ability to pull me into the muddy primitive Dark Age Brit

The Winter King review ↠ 103 L do soldado raso Derfel para ilustrar a vida de Artur O valoroso soldado cresce dentro do exército do rei e dentro da narrativa de Corwell até se tornar o melhor amigo e conselheiro de Artur na paz e na guer. My BookNest review The bards sing of love they celebrate slaughter they extol kings and flatter ueens but were I a poet I would write in praise of friendship If you love stories consisting of memorable characters you love and despise fantastic storytelling stunning action seuences and moral lessons then you will adore this historical telling of the chronicles of Arthur and the story of his lifeThe Winter King is the first book in The Warlord Chronicles which is a uniue take on the story of Arthur during the dark ages I have always loved the tales of Arthur and his warriors and this is not an exception It is the best book I have read which has the story of Arthur as its main concept Fate is inexorableCornwell chooses certain aspects and adapts others from the common stories so the reader cannot predetermine the events which shall occur and so the story which is told is a new one He produces this book in a masterful style overflowing with immersive action and fantastic charactersThe sole point of view is Derfel was born a Saxon but raised a Briton in the kingdom of Dumnonia which is a kingdom residing in southern Briton He features as the main character in the Winter King He is a man who values loyalty and kindness and proves it many times It is hard not to fall in love with him as the stories progress and you witness his faults and virtuesThe prose of Bernard Cornwell is superb as the description and storytelling flows brilliantly It is fluid and smooth making it an easy job to continue reading this large book as the plot line constantly develops in a manner which disallowed me from being bored at any pointThe Winter King is a definite five star rating in my opinion due to one of my favourite writing styles I have encountered and the way it captured many of my favourite aspects in storiesImpending exams are absorbing most of my leisure time but almost every moment of freedom I have gained in the last few days consisted of me reading this It took a serious level of self control to resist devouring this novel with a few long sittingsThis is one of if not my favourite historical fiction novel I have had the pleasure to read and I shall be instantly be borrowing my father s copy of Enemy of God which is the second book of this series

The Winter King review ↠ 103 O REI DO INVERNO conta a mais fiel história de Artur sem os exageros míticos de outras publicações A partir de fatos este romance genial retrata o maior de todos os heróis como um poderoso guerreiro britâ. I really can t say enough about this book There are a lot of reasons to enjoy books and this one scores highest in so many categories It is just very fun to readWho would I recommend this book toIf you loved The Lord of the Rings but the smallest part of you that doesn t care about poetry kind of wished it had a little action If you loved watching the movie Braveheart but wish it was a little accurate historically If you were excited about the 2004 movie King Arthur which although was advertised to be the real story of King Arthur had Arthur and his band of Mongolians defending the Scottish border against Saxons The hell kind of sense does that make Saxons invaded the South west coast the region of England now called Saxony the people Arthur would have fought on the Scottish border were yes you guessed it Scotts If you were excited ditto Tristan and Isolde If you loved Robert Jordan s Wheel of Time series but don t have the eons reuired to read each with a 1000 pages per volume I ll break down the idea behind the book Yes it s about King Arthur And I know what you are thinking it s a magic book No there are no fairies no pixie dust no Crystal Cave sorry Mary Stewart I loved your books too but for slightly different reasons The book does a real researched job in telling a story which might have happened Many of the characters believe in magic and things happen which might be interpreted as such but they might also be explained by realistic meansIt portrays Arthur as a warlord in around 500 AD right after the Romans abandoned their foothold in the British Isles and right before the Anglo Saxon invasion turned the Celtic land of Britain into Angl land England History indicates something stopped the Saxon invasion for about 50 years and most historians believe that might have been Arthur There is also no jousting a sport popular about 700 years later The story is different from the traditional Arthur Legend but similar enough to make it enjoyable to people who also liked The Crystal Cave The Once and Future King Le Morte d Arthurand the many hundreds of others film and bookOh and I don t know who wrote the description which accompanies this book probably someone at www but they say it is written in flat American diction I don t believe Bernard Cornwell a native of Britain would appreciate that He might live in America currently but is still uite English What they may have meant to say is that it is readable Why they didn t just say that I have no idea

The Winter King review ↠ 103 Nico ue luta contra os saxões para manter unida a Britânia no século V após a saída dos romanos O livro traz religião política traição tudo o ue mais me interessa explica Cornwell ue usa a voz ficciona. Full review now postedOriginal review can be found at BooknestHere lies a book that didn t enthrall me but somehow fascinated me I wasn t filled with longing to pick it up and continue reading but every time I did I was given incredibly interesting theories and historical information This was likely the most probable telling of the Arthurian legend that I ve come across The mythos of Arthur and Merlin and Excalibur and Camelot has always intrigued me but it s always remained in the realm of myth For the first time in my life I read something that convinced me of the possibility of Arthur s existence Not its likelihood mind you but its possibility which is still an astonishing change for me regarding a mythCornwell sets his tale in the 5th century after the Roman occupation of Britain has ended Saxons are invading and Britons are warring amongst themselves This is a land of warring factions and a multitude of kings and this is where Cornwell has planted his version of Arthur Here Arthur s tale is told by Brother Derfel an aging monk who wasn t always a Christian In his youth Derfel was a pagan and a warrior who fought alongside Arthur In the framework of Cornwall s story Derfel is writing out the true story of Arthur for Igraine the young ueen over the realm that houses the monastery Witnessing Arthur s story from an eyewitness and one who isn t one of the names we re familiar with was a uniue perspective And trying to reconcile Derfel himself the aging Christian monk and the young pagan warrior is actually one of my favorite aspects of the novel How radically people can change always intrigues meThere were some people Cornwell portrayed here that were at complete odds with almost everything I ve ever read or heard Particularly his representation of Guinevere and Lancelot Even though they were pretty people neither of them seemed to have much goodness within them Guinevere here is a catalyst for war much like Helen of Troy I will never be able to fathom shattering a kingdom in the name of love though I know it s one of the most ancient of justifications for declarations of war And Lancelot is just awful though I m still not sure how many of his failings are truth and how many are exaggerated through the eyes of our narrator However a hero he is not though he knows how to twist events in the minds of poets to ensure his legacyThe presentation of the Druid belief system was my other favorite aspect of this book Their superstitions and spell casting were absolutely fascinating And disturbing I don t think I ve ever read another book that contained this much spitting Or urine flinging Or cow dung as hair product And the Druid s view of the Christian interlopers and the way those opposing faiths both widened the rift in their land and how the people banded together in battle in spite of those opposing faiths was captivating One of the main reasons I ll be continuing the trilogy at some later date is to understand how Derfel transitioned from one faith to the otherEven though I have a deep appreciation for both the story and Cornwell s writing I have to admit that I struggled reading this It was just so dense The information was interesting for sure but sometimes I felt so glutted by the outpouring of information that I couldn t digest uickly enough to keep reading Cornwell did an insane amount of research and it really shows I feel like I learned so much about the Druid faith and ancient Britain but that learning sometimes overwhelmed the story The book reminded me of some of the really amazing history books I read in college Well written and fascinating but too dense to read for simple enjoyment Also it felt a little like the vast majority of the book was either preparing for battle engaging in battle or the aftermath of battle Which is fine but is something I get really bogged down inIf you love historical fiction this is definitely the book for you If you re obsessed with Arthurian legend you owe it to yourself to give this a read And if you just can t get enough of battlefields I think I found your new favorite bookI read this because Petrik loved the series so much
