REVIEW Â The Bear King Dark Age #3 ´ Bridging the gap between 'Game of Thrones' and Bernard Cornwell comes the third and final chapter in James Wilde's epic adventure of betrayal battle and bloodshed AD 375 The Dark Age is drawing near As Rome's legions abandon their forts chaos grows on the fringes of Britannia In the far west the shattered forcTheir great war leader is missing presumed dead And the people are abandoning them For in this time of crisis a challenger has arisen a False King with an army swollen by a horde of bloody thirsty barbarians desperate for vengeanceOne slim hope remains for Lucanus’ band of warrior allies the Grim Wolves Guided by the druid Myrrdin they go in search of a great treasure – a vessel that is supposedly a gift from the gods With. This is the final instalment of the Dark Age trilogy which is an impressive rewriting of the origins of the Arthurian myths It is set during the period of the Roman abandonment of Britain with the prospect of the dark ages looming As with all Wilde's books there is a good pace and a plot with many twists and turns usually where the characters have to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles Pagan beliefs and deities are neatly weaved into the tale in a credible way I found the ending something of a letdown Without giving anything away the story ends uite abruptly and all threads are neatly finished off Too neatly I wrote a dissertation many years ago examing how each retelling of the Arthurian myth reflects the times in which it was written The reflections of the 21st century are not obvious but they are there Perhaps the most telling phrase is when the Green Huntsman says that we are the architects of our own misery

Such an artefact in their possession the people would surely return and rally to their cause Success will mean a war unlike any other a battle between two kings for a legacy that will echo down the centuries And should they fail Well then all is lost In The Bear King James Wilde’s rousing reimagining of how the myth of King Arthur Excalibur and Camelot rose out of the fragile pages of history reaches its shattering conclusio. Great Writing and a really interesting story there's plenty to keep the reader entertained from battles to magic to the names we all know from the myth of King Arthur It's a great book for anyone who loves a good story
