The Lance Thrower

New or Used: 2 copies from $10.03
In the last book in this series, readers witnessed the young Arthur Pendragon pull the sword from the stone and begin his Journey to greatness. Now comes the tale itself - how the most shining court in history was made. Clothar is a young man of promise. He has been sent from the wreckage of Gaul to one of the few schools where logic and rhetoric are taught along with battle techniques, and is sent by his mentor on a journey to aid another young man: Arthur Pendragon. Arthur wants to replace barbarism with law and to keep those who work only for destruction at bay. He is seen as the last great hope for all that is good. Together, Clothar and Arthur build a dream too perfect to last - and with a special woman, they share a love that will nearly destroy them all. The name of Clothar may be unknown to modern readers, for tales change through the centuries. Hundreds of years later, chronicles call Clothar, the Lance Thrower, by a much more common name: Lancelot.

Reviews

"Of the scores of novels based on Arthurian legend, Whyte's 'Camulod' series is distinctive, particularly in the rendering of its leading players and the residual Roman influences that survived in Britain during the Dark Ages." --The Washington Post on Camulod Chronicles"Whyte has done an excellent job of constructing a viable pre-Arthurian world. His fifth-century Europe is evocative, earthy, and well researched." --Romantic Times on Camulod Chronicles"As Whyte waves off the fog of fantasy and legend surrounding the Arthurian story, he renders characters and events real and plausible." --Booklist on Camulod Chronicles"Whyte shows why Camulod was such a wonder, demonstrating time and again how persistence, knowledge and empathy can help push back the darkness of ignorance to build a shining future." --Publishers Weekly on Camulod Chronicles"Whyte's story has an undeniable power that goes beyond the borrowed resonances of the mythic tales he's reworking." --Fantasy & Science Fiction on Camulod Chronicles"A rousing historical adventure, full of hand-to hand combat, hidden treasures, and last-minute escapes, a refreshing change from the many quasi--historical, politically correct Arthurians out there." --Locus on The Skystone"It's one of the most interesting historical novels that I've ever read and I've read plenty." --Marion Zimmer Bradley on The Skystone Of the scores of novels based on Arthurian legend, Whyte's Camulod' series is distinctive, particularly in the rendering of its leading players and the residual Roman influences that survived in Britain during the Dark Ages.
