This book of our allusive King Arthur is wonderful, but it does beg for a sequel to it to continue the story. I also loved how Stephen Lawhead brought in the Avalon part of the Story. I loved the Tie in from the Ancient past to the Reincarnated Modern day fight from the same Soul that fought for his country.

For Arthur is not the only one who has returned from the mists of legend. AVALON A rousing postscript to Lawhead’s bardic Pendragon Cycle. Playing off snappy contemporary derring-do against the powerful shining glimpses of the historical Arthur he created, Lawhead pulls off a genuinely moving parable of good and evil.

Avalon", the final book in Stephen Lawhead's 'Pendragon Cycle', is a fitting conclusion to the Arthurian legend of a king. Now a Junior in college I was thrilled to see Lawhead bring the story to its conclusion(?) in present day England. What a wonderful story come full-circle! Although, I must agree, Moira was not quite the evil villianess I have seen in previous Lawhead tales.

Guess I was King Arthur. I am a fan of Arthurean legend. Lawhead's books are well written, fascinating, credible and true to the period. One person found this helpful.

It has been foretold:In the hour of Britain’s greatest need, King Arthur will return to rescue his people.

In Portugal, the reprobate King Edward the Ninth has died by his own hand.

In England, the British monarchy teeters on the edge of total destruction.

And in the Scottish Highlands, a mystical emissary named Mr. Embries—better known as “Merlin”—informs a young captain that he is next in line to the throne. For James Arthur Stuart is not the commoner he has always believed himself to be—he is Arthur, the legendary King of Summer, reborn. But the road to England’s salvation is dangerous, with powerful enemies waiting in ambush. For Arthur is not the only one who has returned from the mists of legend. And Merlin’s magic is not the only sorcery that has survived the centuries.

As always with me, cons first.
1.I really would have liked to see a few more chracters come back.
2. I am personally one of those crazy nerds who have a pretty good idea of how other countries run thier goverments. This is mind, a only needed to clarify a few things to get this. However, it may seem a bit confusing to anyone who had no idea how the British goverment works, because a part of the overall plot is purely political
3. I would have liked to see Arthur remember more, or at least see Excalibur make an appearance
4. Morgain needed to have more of a presence
...
Holy cow. This is a part of Aurthurain Legend (sp?) that is rarely touched upon, and never before in such a grown-up manner. Lawhead's previous books in the Pendragon cycle have descriptions that make you want more and more, and every word is chosen carefully, so it falls into the grey area of the area between prose and poetry. Avalon..didn't. Lawhead wrote it as a page-turner, and I could not put it down. It's a book that makes you want to cheer Arthur and all his mates on. Merlin (Embries) is awesome, his reaction is very realistic.

Arthur/Bradley/whatever-he-is-calling-himself-in-modern-times-Oh look. Guess I was King Arthur. Lets go get Mordred, forget the fact I am a teenager and have no idea where to begin! Maybe we should find Excalibur! Bang coconuts together-
-Yes. I have seen this. Wince with me. Kudos if you got either of the slipped in references to very respectable King Arthur takes.
Anyway. The characters were awesome, the plot was awesome, we got really cool Arthur speeches, and enough memorable quotes to want to highlight half the book. While this is labeled as stand-alone, you will get the most out of it if you read Arthur first. So, I highly encourage it. Read the Pendragon Cycle. Read Stephen Lawhead, if you haven't. The best way to describe him is a author who writes a uber-intense Narnia for advanced readers.

Well, I hoped to write the first review, but Donovan beat me to it. I will merely add to his accurate praises. Avalon arrived on Thursday, I started reading it Friday and just finished it now late Saturday night. It is a page turner. I was reading my way through the last three books of the Pendragon Cycle before I actually read Avalon. However, I could not resist that beautiful new book sitting unread on the bookshelf. So, I set down Arthur right before a tremendous battle against Balduf and picked up Avalon. I would say that Avalon contains some of the wittiest and most gripping dialogue I have ever read. The characters leapt to life, familiar yet changed in their modern setting. I was terribly scared that Lawhead had over reached himself when I heard that this was a modern King Arthur fable. Lawhead exceeded my expectations for this story and pulls it off with great aplomb and heart. I definitely enjoyed the book more because of my prior reading of his Pendragon Cycle.
Please read this book and let your heart soar! My intial reading rates it at 4 stars, one of Lawhead's best, easily the best since Byzantium, but upon further readings, I may strike again with another review with a higher rating.

This book of our allusive King Arthur is wonderful, but it does beg for a sequel to it to continue the story. I loved the Tie in from the Ancient past to the Reincarnated Modern day fight from the same Soul that fought for his country. I also loved how Stephen Lawhead brought in the Avalon part of the Story. My only problem with the story is that even though there were some ties to the Old Religion (Paganism), The story did what it could to hide much of that as possible. This I find disrespectful to our Ancient Ancestors, as it has been proven by Archaeology and Anthropology that during the time period that King Arthur was suppose to exist, these 2 Religions (Christian's and Pagan's) did live side by side for along time. That is until the Christian Religion took on a wide spread area across the world and the Pagan's were converted, driven underground or Killed for their Critical Thinking ways. I feel this needs to be more address since it is part of the History of our world, weather anyone agrees with it or not. It is part of us all.

I've read many of Lawhead's other books and am absolutely a fan. This one brings the Arthur cycle into the modern era and has far less of the "historical" flavor that the previous books have had. If you aren't familiar with the earlier story line then much of the underlying issues will be unclear. Worth a read, but not as the first of his books.

I couldn't wait to read the next chapter. Obviously the book would have lost part of its meaning if you hadn't read the rest of the books in the series, but when you do it is an incredible way to resolve the storyline. On to another Stephen Lawhead book!

Bloodhammer
I really enjoy Mr. Lawhead's books but this was was not nearly as good as any of his other books. The characters were cardboard and the plot limps along the first half then takes off for a while then limps again. I kept waiting for the PM Waring to show a really evil side or Merlin to do something special. Even worse is the last few pages smack of sequel then suddenly ends. It's not a satisfying book, great idea that wasn't fully realized.

Love this it wraps up the series nicely

A somewhat isolated book of the Pendragon Series which borrows a few key personalities from the series and brings them ~1500 years ahead to the current time. The characters are transparent, the plot is fairly predicable, and the climax was not. No sword clashing or epic battles, and a small and shallow romance thrown in for spice.

With all that in mind, read it for purely entertainment purposes. Set your mind in the same mood as when you watch an action movie, with no real expectations beyond that, and it is an enjoyable read that you'll devour fairly fast, then put it away and forget within a few days.
