A story of love, war, loyalty and betrayal, Excalibur begins with the failure of Lancelot's rebellion and the ruin of Arthur's marriage to Guinevere.

But the promises he made then come back to haunt him after the years of peace and glory.

"Now Complete"

Any additional comments?

Having read previous reviews I was put off from buying the book, but I was desperate to finish the trilogy as I've enjoyed it so much. So I contacted Audible, and following checks they informed me the issue of it being cut short had been resolved. Which I can now confirm having listed to the book.

Good finish

Where does Excalibur rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Near the top. The narration is excellent but the story isn't as good as the previous book in this series.


What did you like best about this story?

Everything is finally tied up in the series and, although lots of people die, there's always an element of humour that means things never get too maudlin or depressing.


What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

He really sounds like he's enjoying the story and ACTING the part of storyteller rather than just some passive reader.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Don't think I cried (like I did with Enemy of God!) but I laughed a few times i'm sure.


Any additional comments?

Other reviewers have stated that this isn't the whole story, it cuts out before the end and leaves a big gap. Well, Audible must have sorted it because the whole thing is here now so please don't be put off if you want to hear this story!
