The Arthurian legend given substance

I had the trilogy as books and as tapes. This is the first time I have seen them as audio books to download and I have been looking for them for several years.

The three titles, The Winter King, The Enemy of God, and Excalibur, are my favourite and the best retelling of the legend of Arthur I have read or heard, filled with action and interesting facts about the era, real locations and a gritty realism. I loved them and will enjoy listening to them again.....and again..
