Of the scores of novels based on Arthurian legend, Whyte's 'Camulod' series is distinctive, particularly in the rendering of its leading players and the residual Roman influences that survived in Britain during the Dark Ages. (The Washington Post on Camulod Chronicles)
Whyte has done an excellent job of constructing a viable pre-Arthurian world. His fifth-century Europe is evocative, earthy, and well researched. (Romantic Times on Camulod Chronicles)
As Whyte waves off the fog of fantasy and legend surrounding the Arthurian story, he renders characters and events real and plausible. (Booklist on Camulod Chronicles)
Whyte shows why Camulod was such a wonder, demonstrating time and again how persistence, knowledge and empathy can help push back the darkness of ignorance to build a shining future. (Publishers Weekly on Camulod Chronicles)
Whyte's story has an undeniable power that goes beyond the borrowed resonances of the mythic tales he's reworking. (Fantasy & Science Fiction on Camulod Chronicles)
A rousing historical adventure, full of hand-to hand combat, hidden treasures, and last-minute escapes, a refreshing change from the many quasi--historical, politically correct Arthurians out there. (Locus on The Skystone)
It's one of the most interesting historical novels that I've ever read and I've read plenty. (Marion Zimmer Bradley on The Skystone) --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Jack Whyte is true to himself. The book is excellent reading but leaves many questions unanswered. I sure hope there is a sequel in the works...Published on Jan. 26 2005
