Summary

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. The Saxons, sensing the disunity of the Britons, seize the chance to destroy Arthur. The climax of the war comes with the legendary triumph at Mount Badon, and Arthur`s great victory. 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!

Amazing story told by an amazing narrator

If you love a gripping, action packed, fantasy with dark twists and life-like characters this is a must. I finished these three books over three months driving to and from work. You won't regret taking the time to hear Johnathan Keeble bring these timeless characters to life.

Perfect Voice Performance

I really enjoyed this, the Warlord Chronicles Trilogy, but especially because of Jonathan Keeble's excellent performance. He was the perfect choice for narrator, does a wonderful job with the various characters and really brought the story to life for me.

The Chronicles are a richly detailed work, which takes some time to get into and can be slightly demanding as a reader. But Cornwell, read by Keeble, subtly weaved all the many strands together making a tale that hums in the memory and makes one wish for a time that probably never existed in this particular way.

I know I'll be listening to these again.
