    4.5 5 StarsEnemy of God, the second book in The Warlord Chronicles trilogy by Bernard Cornwell, and the series so far, has truly been serendipity for me.As I mentioned in my previous review, I ve never bothered to start Cornwell s work, it brings me joy when someone, a friend even better again when it s from one of your fav

    Book 1 3 Book 2 3.5 sThis darker and less romanticized view of Camelot picked up speed in book two I ve grown to enjoy and this version of the characters and especially the view of Lancelot and Guinevere who definitely don t come out smelling like roses.The clash between the Britons and the Saxons also escalates as does the pagans v

    Bernard Cornwell does not disappoint and once again I enjoyed his book immensely The way he connects myth and fiction in this book is astonishing I applaud his singular storytelling skills and I cannot wait for next and unfortunately final book in this series

    8 10A slight improvement on the previous novel but definitely a feel of a second book in a trilogy I enjoyed the first book but it took some time to get into and there were a hell of a lot of names to take on board only for the majority of them to die or no longer be involved after 50 pages This one was a little slow at the start and it took me a w

    Number two in the Warlord series.This is the warts and all story of Arthur, Guinevere, Sir Lancelot and the rest of the round table knights.There is nothing cosy and romantic about this tale Lancelot is a narcissistic pig Guinevere has delusions of grandeur and Arthur wants nothing than to be a farmer.The usual suspects, greed, power, sex, revenge and religion, keep getting

    Enemy of God is a solid 4 stars, maybe even 5 stars I took a little away because I wanted Arthur to be a little cunning and realistic He comes across too na ve in areas where he should not be The portrayal of Christianity and how it spreads conflict is a major theme and isn t pretty But it is probably realistic While this Arthurian tale is not li...
