Dovete pensare che in epoca medievale qualsiasi pezzo di lancia, straccio di bandiera, ossa e pezzi di legno potevano assumere connotati “divini” e portati in battaglia potevano decretare vittoria o morte. It is to this desperate land that Arthur returns, a man at once utterly human and truly heroic: The story was fascinating and spell binding, gripping the reader throughout.
The story opens with the siege of Calais and ends with the first of the plagues that ravaged Europe for hundreds of cornwsll.
I sometimes wonder if Mr Cornwell gets paid per word. Feb 08, Cameron rated it liked it. Mar 14, Christine Van Heertum rated it liked it Shelves: If his works were thoroughly copy-edited they’d be all about 50 pages shorter.

Cijela trilogija ‘Potraga za Gralom’ fascinantno je djelo, i s povijesnog, i s fikcijskog aspekta. The opening passages did take place, but otherwise the rest of the action is fictional, yet still retains the excitement and page turning goodness of the previous two.

I’m just gonna lump them all together here since there’s really not a whole lot to set them apart. Amazing I read this book series years ago when it first came out and now have enjoyed listening to all three books as I drive back and forth to work.

Cornwell’s latest work, Azincourtwas released in the UK in October This final opus in the Beranrd Quest trilogy is focused on Thomas’ battles with his own believes and quest.
Still, I have to give it three stars because – whether intended or not I have no idea – there is no one I’ve read better at illustrating, if not explaining, the deadly twisted kink in the human brain that sends men out to face gruesome, agonizing death over and over again. The plot rarely supports itself as Cornwell bounces from new idea hheretic new idea of how to keep the story going. It comes across like Cornwell just wrote it as an afterthought when he had a deadline to meet and put no little extra effort into creating a definitive ending and just left it as it was.
