Publisher's Summary

He was born to greatness, the son of a Druid bard and a princess of lost Atlantis. A trained warrior, blessed with the gifts of prophecy and song, he grew to manhood in a Britain abandoned by its Roman conquerors - a land ravaged by the brutal greed of petty chieftains and barbarian invaders. Respected, feared and hated by many, he was to have a higher destiny: to prepare the way for the momentous event that would unite the Island of the Mighty - the coming of Arthur Pendragon, Lord of the Kingdom of Summer. This is the second book of The Pendragon Cycle.

A good book spoilt by a bad reader

I bought this book without listening to the preview which I have to report was a mistake. I bought the book after listening to Taliesin: Pendragon Cyckle Book 1 read by Nadia May. I am afraid Frederick Davidson was a mistake as a narrator. He would be better suited to commenting on a game of Polo. He does not read with sympathy, more he reads as one who likes the sound of his own voice, thus spoiling the story.

If I could get a credit and give this book back, I would

Mispronunciation

Having read the first book as a paper back and then listening to the second i find the mispronunciation of Welsh words by the narrator hard work. So much so i am considering ditching the audio and getting hold of the book.

If mispronunciation of Welsh words by English speakers annoys you then this audio book is not for you.

I'm sure this isn't a reflection on the actual story its self as i thoroughly enjoyed the first.
