    I firmly believed that I would never experience another Arthurian novel as magnificent as Bernard Cornwell?s Warlord Chronicles trilogy. I was wrong. I?ll start my review by saying thank you to Robin Carter from Parmenion Books for recommending this book to me. Without him, I wo...

    Bernard Cornwell is the king of historical fiction. That?s not my opinion: it?s an actual fact. His Arthur trilogy (The Warlord Chronicles) is a great piece of writing; yet, for all that, I much prefer Lancelot. There?s just something captivating about the way Giles Kristian has ...

    4.75? I?m distraught. Never never never did I imagine it to be this heart rending. WHAT. A. RIDE! 4.75?? I?m distraught. Never never never did I imagine it to be this heart rending. WHAT. A. RIDE! ...more ...

    Incredible piece of historical fiction, an easy 5 stars. Review to follow. ...

    I loved LOVED this book. From the very first words I knew I was going to adore it and I did. It?s a beautifully written, highly immersive, wonderfully evocative novel that retells the legend of Arthur from the point of view of Lancelot and it is addictive as heck ? even though I ke...

    You guys, I just finished reading the most amazing book and I have a massive book hang over! I stayed up super late last night to finish up Lancelot and if there is ever a good reason to be completely knackered all day, it's this one. I'd been hearing wonderful things about Lancelot...

    A truly magical book from the first person perspective of Lancelot, Arthur's greatest friend and biggest rival. The story follows Lancelot from a boy in Brittany through to his training and then his time as Arthur's right hand. While belief in the gods and magic is prevalent, there ...

    Review In 1995 Bernard Cornwell wrote the Warlord Chronicles, with that he set the bar for Arthurian tales. He took the world of knights in plate armour on horseback, with couched lances and their flowery medieval poetry of vanquishing barbarian foes with honour and knocked them rig...

    An intense and beautifully powerful retelling of the Arthur story, focusing on the most famous and noble yet troubled of knights, Lancelot. All the emotions can be found here and tears do ensue - this is storytelling wrought from the heart. And I'd expect nothing less from Giles Kristi...

    I was seventeen, at Gatwick airport browsing the shelves in Waterstones, waiting to board a flight to Cyprus when I picked up a book called Excalibur by Bernard Cornwell. I'd never been much of a reader, and at that point had never heard of the great man! I bought it, thinking it might...

    I received a free EArc from Netgalley. Lancelot is a brilliant book. I really can't recommend it enough - but at its heart, it is also flawed. The more I think about this, the more I imagine this might have been done on purpose - a mirror image of the character, perhaps. When I f...

    Wonderful. Different in many ways then his prior books. More poetic, evocative prose. Still captures the heat of battles and heart pounding action that Kristian does so well but achingly poignant also. What is, at essence, a tragedy, builds slowly piece by careful piece until we ache a...

    Lancelot is a stunning work of historical fiction about a legend I didn?t know much about. The writing is exquisite with the reader drawn into the book almost immediately and transported to 5th Century Britain. It was fascinating to read about what life was like at that time wit...

    Giles Kristian?s brilliant take on the well-worn Arthurian love-triangle is impressively fresh and original. We all know the name Lancelot but, at the same time, we know almost nothing about him ? except that he was buff enough to beguile Guinevere, and that he was Arthur?s top ?...

    I can?t rate this book fairly. I am biased. I have always detested Lancelot. Still do. Although the writing was superb I found I could not invest myself to a character I believe to be a twat. Still have great admiration for G.K. skills though. Just not the book for me, is all. ...

    Myths, magic, and a story about perhaps the greatest knight of all time? all wrapped up in an epic retelling. Yep, Lancelot pretty much has it all: I?m in love. Everybody knows the story of Lancelot, Arthur?s favourite knight, whose disastrous love affair with Guinevere brough...

    As a young boy Lancelot witnesses the betrayal and murder of his family. He's rescued from the massacre by the soldiers of Lady Nimue who take him across the sea to an island (what is now St Michael's Mount). There he's left to roam until it's time for his training in the art of war. A...

    My review Let me start this review with a resounding 'Wow'. It has been a while since I have read any of the author's previous books but am certainly glad I read Lancelot. It is a brilliant telling of that beautiful, and poignant tale. The man who betrayed Arthur is given a fresh st...

    A lovely book, perfect to read with a nice cup of tea and a blanket. I am not usually one for historical novels but this book was very interesting and managed to capture my interest. The characters are well written and have depth, and the story flows naturally! ...

    I was kindly given an e-ARC of the book by NetGalley in return for an honest review. I have always been fascinated with the Arthurian legend, I guess it had something to do with the fact that I had read a bit of Arthurian legend when I was young and I watched the film, ?The Sword ...

    Wow yess crush storyline beat it. 5 ????? ...

    Ive always been a fan of King Arthur and the people around him. Lancelot however eas never one person who I ever liked. This was a really good tale of his life. From boyhood to adulthood we have a tale of love, revenge, friendship and much more. Its told with a poetic writing style, le...

    Did I ever read something so bleak? I didn't know myself so had to go and compare with my previous reads and I think that yes. We Need to Talk About Kevin was grim enough. Okok granted. But did I ever read a Fantasy book this sad? For an answer, had to go and take a look again at my bo...

    One of the beautiful books I have read this summer. This is more of a historical novel than a fantasy, and it is very well written. As the title suggests, this book is the retelling of the famous Arthurian legend, but, from the viewpoint of Lancelot. I haven't read any Arthurian fictio...

    *I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review* Ever since I watched Merlin I?ve been intrigued with the story of King Arthur, Camelot, the knights of the round table and Guinevere so I was really excited when I wa...

    An enjoyable read told from the perspective of Lancelot and the subsequent love triangle involving himself, Arthur and Guinevere. Set in post Roman Britain beset by Saxon invaders. We meet Lancelot from an early age and watch him grow from a boy to man and falling in love with Guinever...

    Galley provided by publisher If I'm entirely honest, my rating for this book went down the more I read of it. And that, I think, is less to do with the book itself and more to do with me. Because me and long books? We don't get along so well, especially if it's a slowburning long bo...

    I have to make an admission here: I can't bear tragic stories, and they don't come much more tragic than Lancelot and Guinevere. So I started kind of skimming after the 75% mark, but only because I knew there was doom coming and I'd struggle to handle it. But the writing was beauti...

    A wonderful retelling of an Arthurian legend. I?ve always loved an Arthurian story and this one did the trick. We see Lancelot as a child, his years with The Lady of the Lake, and also Guinevere first as a young woman and then as Arthur?s wife. Merlin, Arthur, Camelot and all the f...

    I loved LOVED this book. From the very first words I knew I was going to adore it and I did. It?s a beautifully written, highly immersive, wonderfully evocative novel that retells the legend of Arthur from the point of view of Lancelot and it is addictive as heck ? even though I ke...

    You guys, I just finished reading the most amazing book and I have a massive book hang over! I stayed up super late last night to finish up Lancelot and if there is ever a good reason to be completely knackered all day, it's this one. I'd been hearing wonderful things about Lancelot...

    A truly magical book from the first person perspective of Lancelot, Arthur's greatest friend and biggest rival. The story follows Lancelot from a boy in Brittany through to his training and then his time as Arthur's right hand. While belief in the gods and magic is prevalent, there ...

    I received a free EArc from Netgalley. Lancelot is a brilliant book. I really can't recommend it enough - but at its heart, it is also flawed. The more I think about this, the more I imagine this might have been done on purpose - a mirror image of the character, perhaps. When I f...

    Lancelot is a stunning work of historical fiction about a legend I didn?t know much about. The writing is exquisite with the reader drawn into the book almost immediately and transported to 5th Century Britain. It was fascinating to read about what life was like at that time wit...

    Giles Kristian?s brilliant take on the well-worn Arthurian love-triangle is impressively fresh and original. We all know the name Lancelot but, at the same time, we know almost nothing about him ? except that he was buff enough to beguile Guinevere, and that he was Arthur?s top ?...

    I can?t rate this book fairly. I am biased. I have always detested Lancelot. Still do. Although the writing was superb I found I could not invest myself to a character I believe to be a twat. Still have great admiration for G.K. skills though. Just not the book for me, is all. ...

    Myths, magic, and a story about perhaps the greatest knight of all time? all wrapped up in an epic retelling. Yep, Lancelot pretty much has it all: I?m in love. Everybody knows the story of Lancelot, Arthur?s favourite knight, whose disastrous love affair with Guinevere brough...

    One of the beautiful books I have read this summer. This is more of a historical novel than a fantasy, and it is very well written. As the title suggests, this book is the retelling of the famous Arthurian legend, but, from the viewpoint of Lancelot. I haven't read any Arthurian fictio...

    I firmly believed that I would never experience another Arthurian novel as magnificent as Bernard Cornwell?s Warlord Chronicles trilogy. I was wrong. I?ll start my review by saying thank you to Robin Carter from Parmenion Books for recommending this book to me. Without him, I wo...

    Bernard Cornwell is the king of historical fiction. That?s not my opinion: it?s an actual fact. His Arthur trilogy (The Warlord Chronicles) is a great piece of writing; yet, for all that, I much prefer Lancelot. There?s just something captivating about the way Giles Kristian has ...

    I loved LOVED this book. From the very first words I knew I was going to adore it and I did. It?s a beautifully written, highly immersive, wonderfully evocative novel that retells the legend of Arthur from the point of view of Lancelot and it is addictive as heck ? even though I ke...

    You guys, I just finished reading the most amazing book and I have a massive book hang over! I stayed up super late last night to finish up Lancelot and if there is ever a good reason to be completely knackered all day, it's this one. I'd been hearing wonderful things about Lancelot...

    A truly magical book from the first person perspective of Lancelot, Arthur's greatest friend and biggest rival. The story follows Lancelot from a boy in Brittany through to his training and then his time as Arthur's right hand. While belief in the gods and magic is prevalent, there ...

    Review In 1995 Bernard Cornwell wrote the Warlord Chronicles, with that he set the bar for Arthurian tales. He took the world of knights in plate armour on horseback, with couched lances and their flowery medieval poetry of vanquishing barbarian foes with honour and knocked them rig...

    An intense and beautifully powerful retelling of the Arthur story, focusing on the most famous and noble yet troubled of knights, Lancelot. All the emotions can be found here and tears do ensue - this is storytelling wrought from the heart. And I'd expect nothing less from Giles Kristi...

    I was seventeen, at Gatwick airport browsing the shelves in Waterstones, waiting to board a flight to Cyprus when I picked up a book called Excalibur by Bernard Cornwell. I'd never been much of a reader, and at that point had never heard of the great man! I bought it, thinking it might...

    I received a free EArc from Netgalley. Lancelot is a brilliant book. I really can't recommend it enough - but at its heart, it is also flawed. The more I think about this, the more I imagine this might have been done on purpose - a mirror image of the character, perhaps. When I f...

    Wonderful. Different in many ways then his prior books. More poetic, evocative prose. Still captures the heat of battles and heart pounding action that Kristian does so well but achingly poignant also. What is, at essence, a tragedy, builds slowly piece by careful piece until we ache a...

    Lancelot is a stunning work of historical fiction about a legend I didn?t know much about. The writing is exquisite with the reader drawn into the book almost immediately and transported to 5th Century Britain. It was fascinating to read about what life was like at that time wit...

    Giles Kristian?s brilliant take on the well-worn Arthurian love-triangle is impressively fresh and original. We all know the name Lancelot but, at the same time, we know almost nothing about him ? except that he was buff enough to beguile Guinevere, and that he was Arthur?s top ?...

    I can?t rate this book fairly. I am biased. I have always detested Lancelot. Still do. Although the writing was superb I found I could not invest myself to a character I believe to be a twat. Still have great admiration for G.K. skills though. Just not the book for me, is all. ...

    Myths, magic, and a story about perhaps the greatest knight of all time? all wrapped up in an epic retelling. Yep, Lancelot pretty much has it all: I?m in love. Everybody knows the story of Lancelot, Arthur?s favourite knight, whose disastrous love affair with Guinevere brough...

    As a young boy Lancelot witnesses the betrayal and murder of his family. He's rescued from the massacre by the soldiers of Lady Nimue who take him across the sea to an island (what is now St Michael's Mount). There he's left to roam until it's time for his training in the art of war. A...

    My review Let me start this review with a resounding 'Wow'. It has been a while since I have read any of the author's previous books but am certainly glad I read Lancelot. It is a brilliant telling of that beautiful, and poignant tale. The man who betrayed Arthur is given a fresh st...

    A lovely book, perfect to read with a nice cup of tea and a blanket. I am not usually one for historical novels but this book was very interesting and managed to capture my interest. The characters are well written and have depth, and the story flows naturally! ...

    I was kindly given an e-ARC of the book by NetGalley in return for an honest review. I have always been fascinated with the Arthurian legend, I guess it had something to do with the fact that I had read a bit of Arthurian legend when I was young and I watched the film, ?The Sword ...

    Lancelot is a brilliant book. I really can't recommend it enough - but at its heart, it is also flawed. The more I think about this, the more I imagine this might have been done on purpose - a mirror image of the character, perhaps. When I first began reading Lancelot I simply thoug...

    Wow yess crush storyline beat it. 5 ????? ...

    Ive always been a fan of King Arthur and the people around him. Lancelot however eas never one person who I ever liked. This was a really good tale of his life. From boyhood to adulthood we have a tale of love, revenge, friendship and much more. Its told with a poetic writing style, le...

    Did I ever read something so bleak? I didn't know myself so had to go and compare with my previous reads and I think that yes. We Need to Talk About Kevin was grim enough. Okok granted. But did I ever read a Fantasy book this sad? For an answer, had to go and take a look again at my bo...

    One of the beautiful books I have read this summer. This is more of a historical novel than a fantasy, and it is very well written. As the title suggests, this book is the retelling of the famous Arthurian legend, but, from the viewpoint of Lancelot. I haven't read any Arthurian fictio...

    *I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review* Ever since I watched Merlin I?ve been intrigued with the story of King Arthur, Camelot, the knights of the round table and Guinevere so I was really excited when I wa...

    An enjoyable read told from the perspective of Lancelot and the subsequent love triangle involving himself, Arthur and Guinevere. Set in post Roman Britain beset by Saxon invaders. We meet Lancelot from an early age and watch him grow from a boy to man and falling in love with Guinever...

    Galley provided by publisher If I'm entirely honest, my rating for this book went down the more I read of it. And that, I think, is less to do with the book itself and more to do with me. Because me and long books? We don't get along so well, especially if it's a slowburning long bo...

    I have to make an admission here: I can't bear tragic stories, and they don't come much more tragic than Lancelot and Guinevere. So I started kind of skimming after the 75% mark, but only because I knew there was doom coming and I'd struggle to handle it. But the writing was beauti...

    Myths, magic, and a story about perhaps the greatest knight of all time? all wrapped up in an epic retelling. Yep, Lancelot pretty much has it all: I?m in love. Everybody knows the story of Lancelot, Arthur?s favourite knight, whose disastrous love affair with Guinevere brough...

    As a young boy Lancelot witnesses the betrayal and murder of his family. He's rescued from the massacre by the soldiers of Lady Nimue who take him across the sea to an island (what is now St Michael's Mount). There he's left to roam until it's time for his training in the art of war. A...

    My review Let me start this review with a resounding 'Wow'. It has been a while since I have read any of the author's previous books but am certainly glad I read Lancelot. It is a brilliant telling of that beautiful, and poignant tale. The man who betrayed Arthur is given a fresh st...

    A lovely book, perfect to read with a nice cup of tea and a blanket. I am not usually one for historical novels but this book was very interesting and managed to capture my interest. The characters are well written and have depth, and the story flows naturally! ...

    I firmly believed that I would never experience another Arthurian novel as magnificent as Bernard Cornwell?s Warlord Chronicles trilogy. I was wrong. I?ll start my review by saying thank you to Robin Carter from Parmenion Books for recommending this book to me. Without him, I wo...

    Bernard Cornwell is the king of historical fiction. That?s not my opinion: it?s an actual fact. His Arthur trilogy (The Warlord Chronicles) is a great piece of writing; yet, for all that, I much prefer Lancelot. There?s just something captivating about the way Giles Kristian has ...

    Incredible piece of historical fiction, an easy 5 stars. Review to follow. ...

    I loved LOVED this book. From the very first words I knew I was going to adore it and I did. It?s a beautifully written, highly immersive, wonderfully evocative novel that retells the legend of Arthur from the point of view of Lancelot and it is addictive as heck ? even though I ke...

    You guys, I just finished reading the most amazing book and I have a massive book hang over! I stayed up super late last night to finish up Lancelot and if there is ever a good reason to be completely knackered all day, it's this one. I'd been hearing wonderful things about Lancelot...

    A truly magical book from the first person perspective of Lancelot, Arthur's greatest friend and biggest rival. The story follows Lancelot from a boy in Brittany through to his training and then his time as Arthur's right hand. While belief in the gods and magic is prevalent, there ...

    Review In 1995 Bernard Cornwell wrote the Warlord Chronicles, with that he set the bar for Arthurian tales. He took the world of knights in plate armour on horseback, with couched lances and their flowery medieval poetry of vanquishing barbarian foes with honour and knocked them rig...

    An intense and beautifully powerful retelling of the Arthur story, focusing on the most famous and noble yet troubled of knights, Lancelot. All the emotions can be found here and tears do ensue - this is storytelling wrought from the heart. And I'd expect nothing less from Giles Kristi...

    I was seventeen, at Gatwick airport browsing the shelves in Waterstones, waiting to board a flight to Cyprus when I picked up a book called Excalibur by Bernard Cornwell. I'd never been much of a reader, and at that point had never heard of the great man! I bought it, thinking it might...

    I received a free EArc from Netgalley. Lancelot is a brilliant book. I really can't recommend it enough - but at its heart, it is also flawed. The more I think about this, the more I imagine this might have been done on purpose - a mirror image of the character, perhaps. When I f...

    Wonderful. Different in many ways then his prior books. More poetic, evocative prose. Still captures the heat of battles and heart pounding action that Kristian does so well but achingly poignant also. What is, at essence, a tragedy, builds slowly piece by careful piece until we ache a...
