    EPUB Ý MOBI The Skystone ò Paperback FREE The SkystoneThe Roman Empire is on the verge of total collapse For the thousands of Romans and other peoples spread out across the known world the cornerstone of civilisation is crumbling And in the colony of Britannia two ageing soldiers plan for the future in the event of the withdrawal of the legions and what they perceive as the end of the world The Skystone is the first book in a series that’s much historical fiction than fantasy even though I found it on the fantasy shelves of a Washington bookstore Jack Whyte’s Camulod Chronicles provide a new perspective to what is arguably the most popular fictional legendarium in human history the Arthurian mythos Instead of filling the pages with magic and prophecy Whyte shows us how the life and legend of King Arthur and his companions might really have come aboutThis first b

    EPUB Ý MOBI The Skystone ò Paperback FREE The SkystoneThe best description I can conjure of my experience with Jack Whyte's The Skystone is languid I don't want to describe his inaugural Camulod novel as boring or slow because neither is uite accurate and both carry far too many negative connotations but Whyte does love to take his time And damndoes he ever take his time It took nine novels and thirteen years to complete his retelling of the Arthurian legend This series is not for the impatient Nor is the first book Whyte plods and winds his way through the telling of the story of Publius Varrus and Caius Brittanicus A pair of Roman soldiers stationed in Britain in the dying days of the Roman Empire They are the men who give birth to the Arthur legend both literally and figuratively and it is Varrus who creates the Lady of the Lake a statue cast out of the eponymous Skystone and eventually ExcaliburJack Whyte is nowhere near the finest writer of his generation nor even a contender for the finest writer of fantasy historical

    EPUB Ý MOBI The Skystone ò Paperback FREE The SkystoneThe Legend of Arthur and of his Knights of the Round Table were among the first stories I read for pleasure and not as a school assignment I re read them so many times in those early days that now I feel I am still entirely too familiar with the myths and I don’t need a refresher course But Jack Whyte has an added incentive in trying to bridge the gap between the last days of the Roman Empire and start of the Viking raiding parties He starts the familiar story a few generations earlierRecently I was satisfied to read a couple of good series dealing with early Middle Age “ The Saxon Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell and the Aelric novels by Richard Blake both unfinished Jack Whyte has here a good companion for these historical epics both because of the period covered and because of the similar uality of the writing I would throw in a third name also deservedly famous in the

    EPUB Ý MOBI The Skystone ò Paperback FREE The SkystoneThis is one of my favorite series however I wouldn't recommend it for everyone Most highly I recommend it to those who like an in depth and meandering plot A story that pulls you in and isn't in a rush to let you go THE SKYSTONE like the rest of this series takes it's time and this style isn't for everyone For instance this series is a historical take on the legend of King Arthur and this book takes place three generations before Arthur is born Three And if you enjoy being completely submerged in an author's universe then that's fine If not I should warn you that Arthur doesn't show up until the end of third or fourth bookThat being said this book follows two Roman Britons as the Roman Empire falls and they find a way to perpetuate c
