Camelot - Giles Kristian Review


The Saxons have returned and their war bands stalk the land. The lords of Britain look only to their own survival, unable or unwilling to unite as they once did under Arthur.
And in a monastery hidden in the marshlands of Avalon, a novice monk prepares to take his vows. However, two strangers - the wild-spirited, Saxon-killing Iselle and the ageing warrior Gawain - will pluck him from his sheltered existence and his world will be turned upside down.

Together they will go in search of the last druid, to find the cauldron of a god, and to raise an army to hold the darkness at bay.

And as they journey, so the novice will cast aside his training and embrace his legacy.

For he is a warrior born.

His name is Galahad. And he is the son of Lancelot . . .

I've always loved the story from Camelot and king Arthur. I loved the tv-series so much, and I kind of hoped this book would look like that. 

My expectations for this book were really high, but it did not live up to them. It started rather mysterious, which drew my attention to the book, but it did not make much effort to keep it there. It was nothing like I thought it would be, and that was kind of disappointing. It's labelled as a romance story, but it did not look like that to me.

I'm not saying that the story is bad, but I'm just saying that I wasn't too fond of it. I did not like it as much as I thought I would.

I think history lovers would like It much better than I did?
