Reviews

"A book of great beauty, of fine writing, of the evocation of a time past. . . . A book for the appreciative, mature reader." -- Library Journal

"[Sutcliff] is an effective storyteller and knows how to keep her dialogue terse and believable. . . . There are many fine battles in Sword at Sunset, and they are described with majestic eloquence." --Orville Prescott, The New York Times
"[King Arthur] is a living presence who moves in a brilliantly lit and fantastic landscape . . . rich and sumptuous as the world described in Mabinogion, as gay and menacing as The Tale of Genji . . . Rosemary Sutcliff is a spellbinder." --Robert Payne, New York Times Book Review
"The gritty realism and emotional power of Rosemary Sutcliff's writing places Sword at Sunset in a place of its own . . . leaves you convinced that if the story of King Arthur is more history than fantasy, this must be the way events really occurred . . . makes other versions of the legend pallid by comparison." --Green Man Review
"A good story, swift, various, and at all times exciting. . . . Miss Sutcliff has a sure hand with heroism and pathos." --Times Literary Supplement
