Just a quick FYI... "Clothar the Frank" and "The Lance Thrower" are the same book...
"Clothar..." is the ORIGINAL and Canadian (and most of the world) title of this book, which was changed for American readers... from what I understand, due to something about concern that it might not be understood WHO the book was about, without spoon-feeding it to them... Oh brother!
Excellent read! Highly recommended, as is the whole series...

I see you are selling "Clothar the Frank" and "The Lance Thrower" as a package deal.
What are you thinking? Did you even read these books? "Clothar" is the story of the man we know as Lancelot. It is eighth in the series by Jack Whyte.
"The Lance Thrower" is the **SAME BOOK**, but retitled for the American market. (With a few minor changes in the text for the U.S. market).
So, my question would be: Are you merely uninformed and don't read the books you sell, or are you just trying to get more money from your customers by tricking them into buying two copies of the same book???? Hmph. In either case, shame on you.

Format: Hardcover
I am grateful for Jack Whytes "Dream of Eagles" series which transports its readers back into the times when the Roman Empire contracted in preparation of its eventual demise in 476AD.
This book, again, breathes live into history, as did Jack Whyte's other excellent books. This book (Clothar the Frank), however, focusses strongly on one person, Clothar, who will become who we now know as Sir Lancelot.
The book struck me in the first 31 pages as overly melancholic, and then proceeds at a pace a little too slow for my taste for the next 100 pages. Then, however, with Clothar reaching manhood with sixteen, the book picks up pace and Jack Whyte is at his usual best again. The book is from then on packed with action AND depth and leaves me wanting to buy part two of this book. The reader should be warned that this is truly part one of a two-volumed book, and is in itself not complete.
I can't wait for part two!

Format: Hardcover
The first customer reviewer is absolutely correct when she states that CLOTHAR THE FRANK & THE LANCE THROWER are the same book, and both #8 in his Camulod Chronicles, well actually Clothar the Frank is the first novel of a two-book miniseries called THE GOLDEN EAGLE & is/are companions to the Camulod Chronicles. That aside, let's get on with the review.
This is the story of Clothar the Frank, who will later on be known as Lancelot. He was raised as the son of King Ban of Benwick in Gaul, the land of the Franks. He discovers at the age of ten that his parents were actually murdered by a usurper soon after his birth. However, he has all the talent of a skilled warrior and leader, who will eventually avenge his parent's deaths. In the meantime, he is caught in a war between his cousins, formerly his older brothers, for the crown of Benwick.
Before this, and shortly after he finds out his true parentage, he is sent with Bishop Germanus to attend his school. Here he learns to become a warrior as well as become a more introspective individual. Germanus eventually sends him on a mission to Britain bearing messages for Caius Merlyn Britannicus and Bishop Enos. Little does he know that his destiny will lie in this alien country and with the new Riothamus, Arthur Pendragon & Gwinnifer.
It's been quite a while since I've read the other books in this series, but for me, Clothar the Frank, was a well-written, page-turning novel that kept me engrossed for many nights, some into the a.m.! I believe that this is perhaps Jack Whyte's best effort yet, and I am hoping the publication of the next book in THE GOLDEN EAGLE series is in the very near, not distant, future!

I've loved this series for years. My Dad bought me the Skystone for my birthday a few years back and had it signed by Jack Whyte. Been a fan ever since. I've also read the Templar trilogy and will mostly like read the Laird book as well. Keep up the good work Jack!
